Product Description

Product Description

2011 sophomore album from the British vocalist.. Most of the album was recorded in Malibu with the legendary Rick Rubin (Johnny Cash, Jay Z, Red Hot Chili Peppers) and back in Kensal Rise in London with Paul Epworth (Plan B, Bloc Party, Florence). Adele cites Wanda Jackson, Yvonne Fair, Andrew Bird, Mary J Blige, Mos Def, Elbow, Tom Waits and Kanye West amongst others as key influences on 21. About its release she says 'I'm very excited, nervous, eager, anxious but chuffed to announce my new album! It's taken a while and it knocked me for six when writing it. It's different from 19, it's about the same things but in a different light. I deal with things differently now. I'm more patient, more honest, more forgiving and more aware of my own flaws, habits and principles. Something that comes with age I think. So fittingly this record is called 21. The whole reason I called my first album 19 was about cataloging what happened to me then and who I was then, like a photo album you see the progression and changes in a person throughout the years'.

By Dr. Joseph Lee #1 HALL OF FAME TOP 10 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
Adele (Adele Laurie Blue Adkins) was born on May 5 1988. 21 is her second studio album, released on January 24 in UK and February 22 in US. This fantastic release currently topped both the UK and US album charts simultaneously, a rare feat. In UK, while 21 topped the chart, her first album 19 was #2. The album 21 has just passed the 3 million sales in UK and 2.5 million in US.

In UK, when Someone Like You hit #1 in the singles chart, while her earlier hit Rolling In The Deep was #2. She is the first living artist to achieve the feat of two top five hits in both the Official Singles Chart and Album Chart simultaneously since the Beatles in 1964. In US, Rolling In The Deep was #1 on Billboard Hot 100 for 7 weeks and now also #1 in Adult Contemporary Chart for 19 weeks, plus it is the #1 digital download of 2011 at 5.567 million sale, the #1 best selling download by a British artist in the entire digital era.

Someone Like You was #1 in UK, a million seller and the best selling single in UK this year so far. Her live version of Someone Like You in the recent American Music Video Award was simply outstanding, with lots and lots of feelings. Someone Like You just jumped from 19 to Number 1 in US to become her second Number 1 single, and it stayed at Number 1 for 5 weeks, and now it also hit #1 in the Adult Contemparay Chart. Someone Like You has 2.96 million download so far. She also performed it in the Grammys and the Brit Award. I was dumbfounded by how young Adele is to write such an insightful and beautiful song and then she would deliver it with such power against that achingly simple piano.

In Adele's website, she wrote that she came to America when she was 15. Her dad took her on holiday to New York.

5.0 out of 5 stars Measuring the heartbeat of the world Dec 29 2011
By L. Power HALL OF FAME TOP 10 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
If you're new to Adele you may be wondering which cd to buy.

Recently, traveling overseas in the UK and Ireland, every house I visited seemed to have an Adele cd, usually belonging to a teenage girl or young lady. When I inquired further, nobody had anything but good to say about her. Even parents like her.

Upon my return I bought 21 never having listened to an Adele song. By the time I got home from the record store I had listened to most of the album, and immediately ordered her other album 19.

On youtube you may discover a Saturday night live skit about her song Someone Like you where cast members broke into tears when they heard this song. So later when I watched her on video, I had quite a strong emotional reaction to it, which is unusual.

If one talks about Adele either a flattering comparative or a superlative might be in order.

Not since the Beatles has an artist had two top five singles and albums in the UK charts simultaneously. Not since Madonna has a female artist held the number one position in the charts for 12 weeks consecutively before Adele with 21. 231 million views of Rolling in the Deep on youtube. 6.7 million recoreds sold in the USA in 2011. In the Uk it's the bestselling album of the century so far beating Amy Winehouse's Back to Black. Her previous album 19 sold more than 5 million copies. She has sold more than 4.1 million copies of 21 in Britain alone.

Called 21 because that's how old she was when she wrote it. Several songs including Someone Like You and Turn The Tables are relationship driven pieces, inspired by an ex boyfriend, who broke her heart and inspired her art. The major hits are Someone Like You, and Rolling in the deep, although I find all the songs to be high quality.

5.0 out of 5 stars Inspiring second album from Adele March 7 2011
By V. Buttino TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
Lately I've been discovering new female artists and I must say that two of the stand-outs are Florence Welch (of Florence + the Machine) and Adele.

This album is faultless - there is not one bad thing I can say about this disc. Her voice is raw and it soars. 21 is definitely NOT a happy album, so if that's what you're looking for, you won't find that here. These songs make you pause, listen carefully, and clench your fists along with her. A woman scorned writes the best material in this case! A great follow-up to her first disc 19. My favourite track is #9 ONE AND ONLY - I can't really describe it except to say that it's absolutely beautiful (though heart-breaking all the same).

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Voice March 31 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I heard her live on CBC singing Rolling in the Deep and she took my breath away, Ordered her CD and I have could not have been more pleased, she has a powerful voice, the first couple listens, I felt she could have had more change up between songs but once you start to learn them better, each comes into its own nicely. I would highly reocmmend give this artist a try.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great album Jan. 9 2012
By Luke
Format:LP Record
Bought this album for my wife. She likes it and I found myself quite liking the first 2 tracks. After that it gets a little too mellow for my tastes but all in all a very talented artist. I bought this album in vinyl anticipating it being one of those albums that becomes a classic and always looks nice on your record shelf.
Only complaint was that there is no CD or free digital download included as I have been spoiled with in many other purchases.

5.0 out of 5 stars very surprised, very good
I only give this kind of rating to an album if it meats my requirements. It has to have to have at least 85% of music I like
