What the hell is going on?,
This review is from: Our Version of Events (Audio CD)
Who does Emeli Sande know? She must have friends in very high places. VERY high places. These are ordinary songs, dull if I am being cruel, sung by a very mediocre voice with very mediocre production values. And yet, Emeli gets to make more appearances at the Olympics Opening and Closing ceremonies than Lord Coe. Next she gets near frothing at the mouth with positivity reviews for a very ordinary album and to top it all she does a "live" set for BBC Radio 2 and they plug it constantly for about 6 weeks and play tracks during every single presenters shows. I know of no other artist in the previous 10 years to have garnered such generosity from Auntie Beeb. So come on folks, who the hell does Emeli Sande know???

I fear that I must agree with your review. Her voice isn't that bad but the song writing is poor and insubstantial. In all honesty this is fluff and unlikely to be remembered in years to come. She appears to be a nice young lady and she may yet save herself by releasing a songbook or standards album.
