Rolling Stone (p.76) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "[The album] shows off a vocal instrument that smokes the competition. Check out 'Cold Shoulder,' a lover's blues, produced by Winehouse's secret weapon, Mark Ronson..."
Entertainment Weekly (p.70) - "Over crafty retro-soul arrangements helmed in part by BACK TO BLACK producer Mark Ronson, Adele croons lovelorn lyrics in a smoky voice much more mature than her 20 years would suggest."
Q (Magazine) (p.105) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "Adele's songs possess an ageless classicism....These are extremely grown-up songs in terms of emotional scope and musical arrangement."
Clash (magazine) (p.62) - Ranked #38 in Clash's "The 40 Best Albums of 2008" -- "[A] mature, heart-stopping collection that defied her years with a gorgeous voice to match."
URB (Magazine) (p.88) - "[T]he acoustic ruggedness of the instrumentation appears significantly well-thought out and certainly matches Adele's heartfelt chops."
Thank you. Your feedback will help us create the best experience for our customers.
I'm really into Amy Winehouse and after hearing Adele on cable 'Later With Jools'....I knew I would love her because her music is so much like Winehouse. I purchased the CD and I was right. I hinted for another CD by Adele for Christmas to my husband. Of course I liked the price of the CD at Overstock and will use Overstock again for other purchases.
Adele has a very unique sound of her own that is very pleasant and relaxing. While her voice is bright, she controls it, never forcing it, producing a mellow sound that is interesting, smooth, and relaxed. Wonderful music!
