Hopefully this “big reveal” doesn’t come as too much of a surprise to you. Adele, the nineteen year-old British superstar, has gallivanted throughout mainstream media this year – causing a stir, but not a major reputation. For me, her debut album 19, is flawless and filled with utter perfection. The thought of this album being overlooked as one of the best has left me flummoxed. Did these critics skip this album?
I kid you not, Adele is THE BEST female singer around today. It’s a shame that imports like Duffy and Americans like Katy Perry got the recognition this year, when Adele has the talent and the material to take over the nation.
One listen to “Daydreamer” will make you realize her talent. Onward to “Chasing Pavements” and “Cold Shoulder,” you will begin to wonder why these singles never reached pop radio. While these songs did get some airplay, they never became glorified “hits.” This is very strange to me.
I could go on and on. Compared to 2007, Adele’s 19 trumps every release of the last two years. I believe she has a little bit of something for everybody, but overall offers a natural “unpolished” talent that is hard to find these days. Not to mention the fact that she is only 19 years old. Watch out for Adele and check out this album to listen to the best music of the year.
