I haven’t listened to anything on it yet, but I bought a copy for the library. We’ll see if it circulates.

I haven’t heard the entire album, but I am completely over her “Hello” single.  I don’t get the “ZOMG she is so amazing and the song is so amazing and OMG everything is so amazing” that came with it.  To me it sounded like every other song she has done.  Yup, she has a great voice, but there was nothing new or interesting about it.  Just her, belting out another tune.

I haven’t listened to the album yet, but I really don’t understand the Adele obsession. She’s about as overrated as Beyoncé. 

There are some notes she absolutely cannot hit or they sound ragged. All her songs sound the same.

She has a beautiful voice, and I haven’t heard anything else from the album, but I didn’t even like “Hello” the first time I heard it play. I don’t get the obsession. 

The thing that got me was the very first line “I was wondering if after all these years you’d like to meet…” It just set a strange story in the entire song for me. If an old ex called me after a few years, no matter how close we were, I don’t think I’d like to meet to “go over everything” lol

I can’t even deal with you crazy ladies right now. I’m such an Adele fan girl. LOL

I liked “Hello”, but when I put the album on at work, I felt like I couldn’t really tell when one song stopped and another began. With the exception of “Send my Love (To your New Lover)”, they all sort of sounded the same.

She’s got so much personality when she does interviews, I wish she’d put some of that sass into her music!

Also, as someone in a really happy place, I just found I couldn’t relate. Her music is good enough to have an emotional affect, and I don’t want to feel sad.

greaselightning:  I think she clearly has a fabulous voice but I don’t like her music at all. So boring.

I don’t hate her, but I don’t know what all the fuss is about.

I don’t get the whole “ADELE IS SO AMAZING!!!!!” thing.  To me, her songs are boring.  But to each his or her own!!!
