Let me preface my review by saying Adele is definetly a fabulous singer..but I have to say that this CD for me was disappointing...only in the sense that I bought "21" first which is the an outstanding CD..if you don't have "21" get it!
However "19" was her first CD & within this CD there are glimmers of what & who is yet to come. She has a raw, earthy quality to her voice that is wonderful. I have to give a shout out for whomever was managing her & steered her in the direction she did take for the CD "21" because she definetly should be a bluesy, soul, pop singer as the tone in her voice is better suited to those genres.
Anytime an artist uses their own life experiences for their art...the music will be the best & that is true of "21" more so.
"19" I only liked three of the songs....tracks that I would want for my MP3 player..the rest are just okay in my opinion.......however in comparison if you buy "21" every song on that CD is simply the best....I have literally every song on my MP3 player from that CD. So hope this gives listeners some useful information for buying....it's not like "19" is a waste of your money.....just that "21" definetly is way, way, better!
