I ordered both Adele's albums at the same time because I'd heard one of her songs and given that I live abroad and I've totally lost touch with the British music scene, :-'( I hadn't heard much about her until that point. 19 is a great album led by a great talent with a great voice. I'd like to mention two strong tracks which are the honest and clever 'Daydreamer' and 'Best for Last' which I can only describe as two people's opposing ideas about where a relationship is going sung by one vocalist, Adele. It's just great! My absolute favourite though is 'Melt my heart to stone' because of the amazing vocals that she lays on the track. 'Tired' and 'hometown' are also just great. I feel nostalgic when I hear hometown and imagine her singing about our great capital! Great work!!

This is the debut album from Adele Laurie Blue Adkins who was, I assume, 19 years old when she completed it as she was born in May 1988 and the album came out in 2007. Credit must be given, then, to a young lady who not only sings well - most of the time - but who actually wrote most of the 12 songs here. My favourite one however was composed by Bob Dylan ('Make you feel my love') which stands out from all the others in terms of its lyrics and poetic balance.

It's an album that needs to be played several times to appreciate it. First time round I was rather disappointed; I bought it on the back of only hearing 'Chasing Pavements', which I think was also released as a single, but on first play I gained the impression that this was the only song I liked. Fortunately after a few more plays I changed my view on that, in fact I now prefer several other songs to the one she is best known for. One example is the more up-beat 'Right as Rain' which is pretty good.

Adele wrote seven of the songs on her own (or at least she is the only credited writer for seven), and of the remaining five she played a key role on four of them. The only 'cover' therefore is the aforementioned song by Bob Dylan but it does come over as the most musical song, the best produced and the most complete. In other words, the mastery of Dylan shines through and demonstrates that while Adele has talent and promise, she has someway to go before she's the finished article.

On occasions she seems (to me) to sing in a way that is removed from her natural accent; I noticed this on the opening track 'Daydreamer' in which she has a few Lily Allen-esque moments that I felt don't really suit her overall style.

Having recently discovered the wonderful Adele and eagerly consuming all Utube content of her songs, I ordered this plus 21! I am so happy and grateful to have lived long enough (am getting on a bit now)to be able to hear this extraordinary voice of hers. The songs reflect her life experiences and feelings in a way that is totally absorbing to hear. Never in my long life has such a female singer got through to me in this profound way. Her emotions, the tone of her voice are haunting. You feel everything she sings.
21 shows her developing voice and maturity and is really a must for all music lovers. I cannot recommend 19 or Adele highly enough. May she live long and continue to soothe my soul.

Adele's appearance on the music scene is more like a whisper than a shout as her vocal talents show glimpses of some promise but her English accent doesn't help to define her as a distinct singer. It's a shame really as there's just way too many artists doing the same as Adele and her sound just drifts into the same category as others. Having said that, the album tackles the hardship of love and focuses on Adele's breakup and the theme stays true to that all the way through.

The album starts out with the beautiful ballad 'Daydreamer' which is one of the standout tracks on the album as she manages to pull some excellent vocals out the bag before drifting seamlessly into 'Best For Last' that filters out the background track with the bass guitar strumming what seems like random notes. It's a slower, more deliberate tone to the track and it strangely works. Despite the weird backing track that doesn't do the song much justice, the vocals are top notch and the acoustic feel to the track is exactly what's needed here and is spot on.

Adele's hit that got her noticed in the charts 'Chasing Pavements' then hits the speakers with a brilliant build into a euphoric chorus that rises the tempo of the track and makes it one of the best on the album. The themes of love and loss are really emphasised in this song and the album is lifted dramatically.

The tempo then rises dramatically for a song that almost tiptoes around Amy Winehouse's territory 'Cold Shoulder'. In my opinion, this track works better with some gorgeous vocals and an all-round better track with some excellent use of drums and percussion that really make this track pop.

Adele's first album full of great melodies and quite outstanding control of song lyrics, maudlin to some but very recognisable to others. a very mature set of songs for one so young.
