Adele Adkins’ previously released album, “19”, was the perfect representation of her unique voice and showed everyone an incredible new talent. So, with her new release, “21”, her fans were ecstatic for more of her. With her jazz tone still intact, she has toughened her lyrics and totally strengthened her music. The new release is the perfect representation of what Adele has always has shown through her music.
The album is based on her struggle through heartbrokenness and her will to get over it and move on. “Rolling in the Deep,” the album’s first single, provides listeners with the feelings of emotions her words are giving. With her voice tossing and turning, the track is filled with tons of edge.
Another amazing track on the CD is “Turning Tables,” which was featured in the hit TV show Glee following the albums release. In the episode, Gwyneth Paltrow covers the song, along with other tracks from Adele’s previous album, “Ain’t No Way,” “All by Myself,” and “I follow rivers.”
Adele shows much maturity on this album. She's definitely a breath of fresh air, and a well-deserved successful one at that. Overall, “21” shows that she is becoming stronger and that she is not afraid to show us all what she’s got. Hopefully by the time her next album comes around listeners will be just as pleased about it as they are with this epic music.
