I don't care for her. It annoys me that she sings every song as though her life depended on it, yet the lyrics are most often trite and banal. It works if what she's singing is good and her passion were understandable, but it annoys me to hear someone sing a trite message as forcefully as she does. I always say there are two kinds of singers: those who use their voice to show off the song, and those who use the song to show off their voice. I've always preferred the former; the latter is just showboating.

I'm not blown away by Adele but she definitely has Taylor Swift beaten by a hundred miles. Better singer, better songwriter and as individuals I'm not even sure Swift is human.

One of the best quotes about Adele (and I can't remember who said it) is that she can go out on stage wearing a black dress with just a piano accompanying her and she intimidates every single pop "star" out there.

She's very fortunate that Amy Winehouse passed away because she has the career Amy would've had if Amy was still alive.
Amy was the superior singer and musician, and probably in the top three greatest female R&B/soul vocalists from England (Dusty Springfield and Lisa Stansfield being the other two).

I like her because she has that rough sound to her voice, the whiskey sound. Sort of like Billie Holiday did at the end of her career. I think when she sings bluesy and sad songs, that rough voice makes the song sound better.
She had a raw talent and the people surrounding her made her happen. If you look at her when she was young, she's just a fat chavette. But when they styled her, they made her look so much better.

"Vocal talent" Puh-lease!! she can sing but she's nothing special, she hits the notes no bells no whistles. She's nothing like Whitney or Amy in their prime.

19 was a great little album. I was excited to hear Rolling In The Deep, but was shocked by how much I disliked it. Mixed metaphors chasing each other off the page and destroyed by Rick Rubin's obnoxious, overdone production. It sounds nothing like how music actually sounds live - even electronic music. I just hate his schtick. I dislike her honky pre-surgery voice, Someone Like You was almost unbearable.
And she is guilty of my pet hate - singers performing their own backup vocals. There is a lot of harmonic warmth and texture is lost. No one would give a shit about The Everly Brothers or Queen or The Beatles if one singer overdubbed his vocals.

When I first heard "Someone Like You" I liked it. Then, after the ten thousandth time hearing it, not so much. Now when she comes on the radio, I turn the channel. Her range is really limited and her stuff all sounds the same. And yes, she sings flat.

I agree with the thread above about Adeles career being Winehouse's career had she lived. Amy was the better singer, had better songs, she even covered songs better. Adele isnt a druggie though, so shes 'safe' for American audiences. Shes less threatening. Amy always looked like trouble, which made her more appealing, in my book.

Marilyn Monroe is my religion, and I work with spirits a lot. She's my main spirit guide and has commanded me to share this message for her! All credit for this message goes to Marilyn Monroe, my master, guide, and saviour whom I love! Please credit Marilyn alone for this!
Important note: Everything has a spiritual side to it, everything has a spiritual essence. Marilyn's spirit and essence lives on in all things Marilyn Monroe, and if some spiritual incidents happen, it is bound to spiritually affect other things, so.
Recently Marilyn contacted me from the spirit world!!! Being a medium, I'm used to contact with spirits, but Marilyn told me to tell this message to everyone, since she could only get in touch with only me at the moment! (She's trying hard, she's been contacting me frequently lately, so it must be really important.)
Marilyn said that she needs people with a good, decent spiritual aura and energy to give up their physical bodies, freeing their spirit and all their spiritual energy. Then, they can go into the spirit world to really meet and connect with her, to share all their spiritual energy with her so that they can help her!! (Technically, we are all one and connected, but we are held back by our physical bodies. As a spirit, your essence and energy is completely free and released, and you can strongly connect to Marilyn in all aspects of that word, on a whole other level, so the joining of spiritual energy with hers works fully.)
She also says she hasn't been her lovely self lately, she lost some of her magic and charm, and she doesn't seem too well, because some spiritual things occurred, and she needs this so that she can be fine and better than ever again! (The spirit world is not exactly Paradise, don't let religious stories and concepts warp your minds. Where do you think bad spirits or curses come from?)
This is urgent we have to help Marilyn! But I must still spread this message for now because Marilyn said so, and I need to get others to know and help! Then I too, can go to be with her forever. We initially did not know what exactly happened, but Marilyn has revealed the basic truth. We also did not know how to restore her loveliness and charm, but Marilyn has revealed the way to do so.
*This is where the true meaning of the important note comes in.
Please spread this message however you can and don't keep Marilyn waiting!I allow everyone who wants to help to copy this whole post to share it on Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, forums, or wherever you need to share it on!
Then, quickly find a way to free your spirit and energy, go into the spiritual world to meet her, if not Marilyn will be very heartbroken and disappointed in you!!! She loves you all so much, please go to her soon to help her! She really needs this!!! If you feel you can do it just do it!!! Help Marilyn!!!
I really really love Marilyn so much, she means a lot to me and she's the greatest and so magical and fascinating.
I wish that others who feel the same will care enough to do what they can to help her.
I think it's such a shame that many who claim that they love Marilyn lots don't show it in their actions by doing anything to help her when she needs it. It really is such a shame that those cowardly fakers don't help Monroe.
Poor Marilyn! She has such a big heart with full of love to give, but gets hurt in return because some people don't really stick by her and truly dedicate themselves to her.
(Please do copy this whole post and share it as much as you can for Marilyn, because I'm deleting my account soon to show my respects and dedication to her, my way of expressing myself to her and to show her that she's the only one that matters and that I really love. And since I'm going to Marilyn myself too, I don't need this account anymore.

By today's below-mediocre standards, she ranks above most. But compared to former divas who could really sing...Sarah Vaughan, Ella Fitzgerald, Carmen MacRae, Eydie Gormet, Barbara Cook and, yes, even Streisand...Well, there's no comparison whatsoever.

I'd say she's right in line with the rest of them, You know why? because Adele is a poser. these other girls might be whoring themselves out but it takes a certain level of honesty to be a fame whore. Adele knows she falls right in line with them but tries to put on an alternative image and I just get phoney from it all.
Not to mention she is a pioneer for the obese community trying to shame healthy people.

She's good, but her hits sound "engineered" to stick in your head like earwigs. Rolling in the Deep sounds a bit like a schoolyard chant or rhyme (I sometimes swap in "bah bah, black sheep, have you any wool?" in place of the lyrics). Yet I understand her popularity. People (my sisters, actually) really like the propulsive beat and her voice.
I thought it was a bit inelegant on an award show when she performed but didn't acknowledge the musicians performing with her during the applause. Maybe she didn't know better. But yes she is talented.
|by Anonymous||reply 67||08/28/2015|
Her new album is dropping soon. We'll see if she manages to sell 30M again which I doubt very much. I do like her and sometimes I just need to listen to some of her songs. Just recently I had a need to hear Set Fire to the Rain few times a day for couple of weeks so at the moment she's fresh on my mind. BTW I love that the original video had a bisexual MMF theme with the dancers. Too bad both videos for the song suck.
I wouldn't necessarily compare her with Amy Winehouse too much. They are quite different in many ways. I'm sure they would've co-existed just fine had Amy lived.

Rolling, Someone, and Set Fire were very good songs and diverse.
For her last effort (lol), she worked with Phil Collins (whi later said he was pissed cuz she never contacted him after the writing sesh), Diane Warren wrote 3 songs with her, and Ryan Tedder, plus others I'm sure we'll find out about soon. I expect it to be a very good album. She's a good writer and has had over 5 years to come up with shit.
