Thoughts

I have to hold my hands up and admit, I don’t get why everyone is so crazy about Adele? She is undeniably talented and one of those artists that wears her heart on her sleeve, so to be applauded, for sure. But people go crazy for her and I don’t totally get it. But I couldn’t ignore the new album, being raved about as it was.

It’s good - exceptional vocals are a given, but it’s heartbreaking and soul-affirming in equal measure. I found the moments where Adele is talking through her feelings, both with and without her son, a bit uncomfortable, which is no doubt the point. It felt more like a therapy session than an album. But the songs are good, so overall I enjoyed it.

Rating: 3 / 5
