Adele 21 2011
It's good. It's better than the first one by quite a bit.
There are too many slow, heartfelt big pop ballads. You might say just a little too Streisand, or Journey. But they are pretty good big pop ballads.
I guess, for me, Rolling In The Deep, Rumour Has It, and Someone Like You needed at least two more equals to make this a classic. The soulful He Won't Go comes close.
As it is, it's good. There's clearly a lot of people who feel more strongly than do I, since 22 million units have been sold. That's actually purchased. Think about the decent living a guy in a punk band could make if their fans actually purchased a copy of their CD.
