Tom Lamont – “Adele: The Girl with the Mighty Mouth” (2011)

May 14, 2011 at 1:30 am (Adele, Music, Reviews & Articles)

This extensive article about Adele comes from The Guardian, March 27, 2011. She is definitely the best singer out there these days… 

As the London singer conquers both Britain and America with a smash No. 1 album, we meet a superstar in the making.

It is a gusty Saturday in New York in late February, and Adele is not yet a very big deal. The 22-year-old singer from London, Adele Adkins in full, can drift into the lobby of a posh hotel in Manhattan and remain ignored, mostly, while other guests gather at the windows to watch the wind.

It’s chaos outside. A doorman has had his hand crunched in the blown-shut door of a cab, and now a departing guest, trying to tip him a little extra, loses several unpocketed bills to the gale, staring sadly as they whip away uptown. “Windy,” says Adele, approaching from behind, offering about the last instance of understatement I will hear from her over the next few days. It’s a distinctive voice, hard cockney in Greenwich Village, but nobody turns from the window. It’s that sort of hotel, accustomed to celebrity of varying degrees, and anyway Adele is not yet a very big deal in America because her new album, 21, isn’t out for another week. Nobody’s sure if it will make quite the same splash as her first, 19, so she has a week of hard promotion ahead: breakfast telly, radio interviews, an appearance on The Late Show with David Letterman, the country’s most iconic talk show.

Adele – “21” (2011)

April 19, 2011 at 12:32 am (Adele, Music, Reviews & Articles)

A recent review of Adele’s excellent new album, taken from the Music OMH site, written by John Murphy, Jan. 24th…

With her extraordinary voice, reassuringly dirty laugh and down to earth personality, Adele Adkins seemed manna from heaven from those looking (musically at least) for ‘the new Amy Winehouse’ back in 2008.

Her debut album, 19, certainly had some standout moments but was marred by an over-reliance on filler tracks — understandable enough for a debut. But there was more than enough potential there to bode well for the future.

With 21, that promise is well and truly delivered upon. And the Winehouse comparisons aren’t likely to disappear — for, in a similar way that Back to Black was a massive step up in quality from Frank, 21 represents Adele’s coming of age.

As the old adage puts it, from great pain comes great art. And it really seems as if Adele has been through the emotional mill here. Almost every song Read the rest of this entry »

Adele – “Chasing Pavements” (Radio Session – 2008)

January 4, 2009 at 9:21 am (Adele, Music)

Another version of this great song, this time recorded w/ only acoustic guitar accompianment for Virgin Radio sometime in 2008…

This girl is very talented and could go far. She has a beautiful voice and sounds much older than her years. Hard to believe she was only 19 at the time.
