Where do you start? Simply stunning album. Being a bit of female vocalist fan, (Missy Higgins, Natalie Merchant, Annie Lennox, Sarah McLachlan, etc.), Adele is right there.
If you like strong female vocalists, powerful lyrics and emotionally laden songs, buy '21' now.
Netgear DG834N RangeMax NEXT Wireless ADSL Modem, &hellip by NetGear
i've been a long time Netgear user and was very surprised to the very mixed reviews about the DG834N. I had a DG834.v2 for ages which worked well but lacked range in the house. So, even after reading the mixed reviews I bought a DG834N.

Stunning, simply stunning. It's dark, deep, sad, depressing, emotive, atmospheric, emotional and one hell of a journey from start to finish. If you want 'pop' don't buy this! If you like expressive lyrics sung by a haunting voice then this is the best you can do.

Natalie Merchant IS acquired taste. But without sampling, your life will be poorer for it!
