Adele (19) 2008






Like most people on the planet, I didn't "discover" Adele until 21 became a monster hit. Now, I knew of Adele before when she came out and even heard a couple of songs and I thought they were pretty damn good. But for whatever reason, I never sought her out in large part because she just got lost in the sea of new Artists that were continually being groomed for mass consumption. So, with the huge success of the first couple of songs off of 21, I bought the album and became a huge fan of hers. Of course after I had exhausted 21 to the max, it was time to go back and see where it all started. That brings me to...

...19. Now, I gotta say, I wasn't a fan of her debut. Upon listening to 19, I thought it was a decent album, just nowhere near the level of 21. I think the biggest hurdle I had to get over with 19 were the song arrangements and the track order. Now over time the album has grown on me, but there is that little something that is keeping me from truly connecting to the entire album. Once again, it has to do with the different style of songs that goes against making this one, big cohesive record. What's funny is that on the album some of the songs that I seem to be fighting against, I actually love when she sings them live. I'm talking about Crazy For You and First Love specifically.

The songs that I immediately got and that still knocks me out is Chasing Pavements and Hometown Glory. To me, both of these songs are the crown jewels here. And try as you may, once you hear them, they get stuck on your head for days on end. Originally I gave 19 a 3 Star rating, but over time it has gone up to 4 Stars. Will it ever get to 5 Stars with me? Who knows? Come back in a year or two and see what I think of it then.

Favorite Songs: Daydreamer, Chasing Pavements, Melt My Heart To Stone and Hometown Glory.
