Edit score: Heard a single from this album on the radio and liked it so I gave the album five extra points.

Adele 21 BEA Ranked 498 February 2018

To put it mildly I'm not an Adele guy however on my quest to listen to the BEA top 500 (twice ) it had to be done & done it was

I'd been dreading this one but fortunately it wasn't as painful as I'd anticipated , there's some nice moments here

The stats around this album are mind blowing: 31 million copies sold world wide , the 4th highest selling album ever in the UK , number 1 in US for 24 weeks , the most certified album in history with more than 400 certifications world wide , the biggest selling album of the past decade just to name a handful

The album itself was pretty much as I expected: songs about love , loss , heartbreak and of course THAT voice . Adele does tell some fibs such claiming she can set fire to the rain ! Yeah right I'd like to see that honey

A clear low point is the Cure cover of 'Lovesong ' Woof what a grease fire , this track stinks

A clear high light is closer and mega seller 'Someone Like You' which really is a cracking track . I couldn't help but ponder how the Circular Piano in 'Someone Like You' is almost identical the Circular Piano in R.E.M's 'Nightswimming' . Play these 2 tracks back to back and you'll understand

Music for the masses

70/100
Minus 10 for 'Lovesong ' cover ( peg on Nose)

This artists celebrated voice is all power without anything that makes it special. Give me Pavarotti or Ghiaurov anyday.

To say Adele has an unearthly voice and undeniable talent is, of course, stating the obvious. That she was able to write the majority of the songs here at "21" is amazing. The only issue (and a very minor one at that) is all these love songs, one after the other, can seem a little overwhelming at times.

I sought of missed all the Adele hype but happened to hear this album whilst in a bric n brac store. Immediately the lyrics touched me and I was drawn to purchase this album. It is a very good album.

Just because it sells in the trillions doesn't mean it equates to dross. This is the Model T Ford of modern music. An absolute classic.

I love the motown type sounds goin' on here, and so it adds something more than just a crappy pop record for me.

Having said that, Amy Winehouse did that sound better obviously, and this borders slightly boring piano music. Step above your average pop, but still pretty average.

So much hate for an album in the overall top 1000. This album is not your average pop album for it is actually consistent with great catchy tunes as well as the beautiful somber ballads that are sung. Great job Adele, although i do believe she will never top this record.
