Biography

Adele’s new album “21” is set to be released on Monday January 24th. 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 ... Read more in Amazon's Adele Store

Product Description

Product Description

Critically-acclaimed debut album by the English singer-songwriter. Recorded while the singer was 19 years old, the album features the singles 'Hometown Glory', 'Chasing Pavements', 'Cold Shoulder', 'Tired' and 'Make You Feel My Love' (Bob Dylan cover).

BBC Review

It's easy to get the wrong impression about Adele. She looks like another Kate Nash, all Top Shop dresses and haircuts that only a mother could love. And the fact that she's been a fuss on MySpace for a while only ups the sense of trepidation. Add to that a Later! debut which came filled to the brim with nervous caterwauling, and hopes for her album aren't pitched particularly high.

This is why it's such a shock that it's a genuinely touching, maturely considered and brilliantly sung opus that belies her titular age. Listening to it for the first time is the aural equivalent of walking into one of those oh-so-quirky little bars that you expect to be filled with bland scenesters and discovering that everyone within is friendly and they're serving the finest soul food to fill you up with.

Pitching up somewhere between blues, folk and jazz, she's included something for everyone without ever pandering to a particular trend. Her melodies exude warmth, her singing is occasionally stunning and, in the dramatic Hometown Glory, the spiky cool of Cold Shoulder (which is unexpectedly reminiscent of Shara Nelson-era Massive Attack) and the piano epic Make You Feel My Love, she has tracks that make Lily Allen and Kate Nash sound every bit as ordinary as they are.

That said, there is a note of caution to be sounded. There's a danger of the hyperbole exceeding the actual potential here: The Brit Awards made her their first ever winner of the Critics' Choice award and the BBC's Sound of 2008 list named her as the most promising new music talent in UK, while one magazine compared her songbook with Leonard Cohen's! While she is undoubtedly good, she's not quite worthy of those accolades yet, as her voice lacks a little soul and her songwriting a little depth.

Adele is a fine prospect and a genuine talent, but just like Amy Winehouse, who went to the same performing arts school, her brilliance will truly shine when she's a little further into her career - though hopefully, she'll be better at handling the astronomical fame that awaits her than the crumbling Mrs Fielder-Civil.

19 is a great start, a solid base to build a career on and a wonderful reminder of just how great our home grown talent can be. Just goes to show that the old adage is true - you really can't go judging a pop star by their cover. --Chris Long

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!!

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
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.

I bought this and 21 at the same time, and have listened to 21 much more, as it's much darlker and richer. Can't help wonder what 23 will be like, if her relationship stays on the rails!!

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.

Just heard some Adele recently and thought I'd give this CD a try. I'm really enjoying it and love her soulful smokey voice. Yes a total fan now and will try 21 next. Probably not her usual agegroup of fan as I'm 50+

This is my favourite album at the moment, I play it constantly. I love every track but 'Chasing pavements' and 'Make you feel my love' are my prefered tracks. Adele has such a wonderful voice. I have also bought '21' which is also great but still prefer '19'.

I am enjoying Adele's lastest so much that I wanted to experience her first album too. Though I am enjoying Adele 19, I find I have more favourites with Adele 21.
