This isn’t “Rolling in the Deep”. On purpose.
I listened to Adele’s two albums yesterday and I really enjoyed them. Her first album is this soulful effort that doesn’t sound too much like anyone else today. I’ve heard comparisons to Amy Winehouse but I haven’t heard her album so I don’t know if that’s a justified contrast but the only one she remotely sounds like is Alicia Keys in that they both like to have old soul sounds and timbre in their music. That’s the only thing they have in common though. Adele truly sounds like someone who isn’t from this generation and it’s refreshing.
