Tamara's Take: Heavy Rotation

Adele is a fairly new singer from Enfield, North London. 19 is her first of what I hope is many more albums.

Since the Grammy's it seems that people want to jump on the Adele bandwagon. I think this is a good thing since she is an awesome singer. I have had her album since it first came out. I stumbled upon her song "Chasing Pavements" on youtube and fell in love with it immediately! I love her voice and the lyrics of the song. You all know how big I am on lyrics and this album has some great lyrics. You can feel the sadness in her voice which allows you to connect with her and really enjoy the music. This is a sad cd, most of the songs are sad which for me is great because I love sad songs. If you're looking for some "pick-me up" music then you probably want to listen to something else.

Stand Out Tracks:

*Best for Last - (Wait, do you see my heart on my sleeve?)
*Chasing Pavements - (If i tell the world,I'll never say enough, Cause it was not said to you)
*Cold Shoulder - (These days when I see you, You make it look like see-through)
*Melt My Heart To Stone - (And I hear your words that I made up, You say my name like there could be an us)
*First Love - (This love has dried up and stayed behind, and if I stay I’ll be a lie)
*Tired - (and for what and for what and for what, when i don't get nothing back, boy I'm tired)

Songs on Repeat: Crazy for You, Right as Rain, Make You Feel My Love, My Same

Solid Tracks: Daydreamer, Hometown Glory

Skip It: I wouldn't skip any songs on this album!

I've had this for a while and still haven't listened to the whole thing; I'm bad about that. I love sad songs too though. I'll make it my business to listen to it at work tomorrow at least!
