Adele – 21


Adele21 XL XLCD 520 (2011)

Adele is a good singer, but she’s a better singer than songwriter.  Lots of this material wears pretty thin.  The popularity here seems to stem mostly from the fact that it’s better than most of what gets played in the mainstream media most of the time, which is more a comment on how much crap the media usually plays than any great achievement here.  Pleasant and forgettable.
