Adele: 21.

I love Spotify, I think it’s a great way to stream music for free and I’ve relied on it almost entirely for about a year. What it doesn’t allow you to do, unless you pay, is to take the music with you which hadn’t been an issue for me because there hadn’t been an album I felt I had to have on my iPod. But then Adele released her second album, 21, and I instantly knew that I absolutely have to have it everywhere I go.

I'm far from being musically inclined myself and honestly wouldn't know where to start when attempting to review an entire album so I'll leave that to the music critics.  But what I will say is that I think this may just be the album of the year for me. Yes, it is only January but I'm not convinced anything can top this.

While I still think Someone Like You may just be one of the most beautiful songs I've ever heard, there are a few other real stand out songs on 21. When I first downloaded the album Gem said that I had to listen to Set Fire to the Rain because it was amazing and she wasn't wrong! If I'm not careful I'm going to end up listing every single song on the album as one of my favourites, I do really love them all, but the last two that stand out for me are Don't You Remember and Take It All. I'm a sucker for the ballads,
I really am! If you liked 19, I think you might just love 21!

Are you an Adele fan? What do you think of 21?

  4. I totally love this album.

    I was planning on buying it when it came out on Monday, but little did I know my mum had pre-ordered it and it came on Saturday! bonus!!

    My mum has already told me off for over playing it so that she doesn't get sick of it!! :S

    I agree with Gem, I straight away loved Set fire to the rain but I also love Someone like you. To be honest it is most definitely one of those albums that I could listen and enjoy all the songs! It is amazing.

    Have you listened to the live part of the 19 album on spotify. I love her cover of Sam Cooke Thats it I quit I'm moving on.

  7. I absolutely adore Adele. As an amateur singer myself, I can't think of any other female artists at the moment that I admire more than her. Her voice is absolutely stunning and the tracks on 21 reflect the raw talent that she posseses. I just can't recommend her more to anyone. Glad you're a fan too (:

  12. I love Rolling in the Deep. I may have to purchase this album

    I know what you mean about Spotify and not being able to take your music with you. I had to buy Ellie Goulding's Bright Lights because I REALLY needed it on my ipod :) xx

  14. After I saw her singing "someone like you" live on TV a couple of months ago, I was really impatient to listen to the new album and I downloaded it as soon as it was available! She is so so talented!

  18. I love her! I managed to catch her when she supported Jack Penate just before she hit the big time. It was a tuny venue, probs only about 500 people. She was on first and hardly anyone watched her, I was glued to the spot! It only cost me £8! All of a sudden she just got massive!
    Her voice is amazing live!

  24. I was never a massive adele fan until I downloaded this album, I liked odd songs but I don't think I'd ever listened to her first album in its entirety so that's probably the reason. But now? Good God, she is SO INCREDIBLE. I cannot get over it, I've had her album on constant loop for the whole of this week (35 times & counting!) and I cannot get enough. Did you hear her Live Lounge this morning on Radio 1? I had tears streaming down my face, ha.
    My two faves are the ones you mentioned - Someone Like You and Set Fire to the Rain. Stunning!

    Have also just come across your blog, not sure why I haven't been here before but it's lovely :) xx
