25 CD - Adele is happy and it shows in every glorious song. So, get your replay button ready…

Adele transcends her previous albums and holds true tó her incredible talent. After waiting 4 ½ years for à follow up tó her sophomore album we finally get tó hear whàt she’s had in store for us and thé waít ís well worth it. Her heart hàs mended and hàs grown even larger with thé addition tó her family. You can feel thé love in her songs. I read in her Rolling Stone interview thàt shé wrote à bunch óf ‘motherly’ songs thàt but they dumped them, even so, you c an tell thàt there wàs something amazing Adele went through since her last album (even if thé songs aren’t ‘motherly’).

There are 11 gorgeous songs on thís album and às fabulous às each song ís on its own they form à really cohesive album. Here ís my breakdown óf thé individual songs:

1. Hello: Thís song ís her first release and ít wàs just whàt we needed tó get our toes wet again with thé lovely sound óf Adele. I’ve listened tó thís à thousand times (pun intended) and ít feels tó me thàt shé ís trying tó ring up her old self tó let her know that’s its all good. Life hàs moved on from thé old flame and shé ís fine. Shé hàs risen above thé heartbreak.

2. Send My Love (tó your new lover): Thís starts with à lovely bít óf just guitar and Adele with some beautiful humming then ít moves on becomes really catchy, like really catchy. It kind óf reminds me à bít óf à couple óf Lily Allen’s songs. Fun, upbeàt and you just want tó bounce à bít and sing along. Thís will be à big hít for thé youtube car sing-alongs. I found myself snapping my fingers tó thís à lot. She’s telling her ex tó send some love tó hís new lover and telling him tó treàt hís new lover better.

3. I Miss You: Thís hàs an incredible drum beàt thàt makes me wanna break intó some modern dance. I hear à liitle Sia & Florence and thé Machine in there but that’s my opinion. Thís ís thé one you are going tó turn up thé radio on and just dance around thé house.

4. When We Were Young: I just love thís song, thé video wàs released à few days ago and ít ís so sublime. Thé way shé can lower her voice and sound so freaking sexy and then hít thàt amazing high note àt 3:49 just blows me away. Thís song ís just so sweet and thé lyrics are magical. I think ít brings back à lot óf memories for anyone who had some greàt moments when they were younger and love looking back on our youth with fondness for our past. I just can’t stop singing, “It wàs just like à movie, ít wàs just like à song. My God thís reminds me óf when we were young. Let me photograph you in thís light in case ít ís thé last time.” I’m not sure who wrote thàt line (I’m hoping Adele did) because ít ís stunning.

5. Remedy: Thís one brings in à piano àt thé start and hàs some lovely lyrics. “When your heart makes you feel like à fool I promise you will see thàt I will be, I will be à remedy. “ It ís about how our hearts will break and we will feel awful but shé will be there tó help when thé pain cuts too deep and thé night keeps you from sleeping. It ís à lovely ballad. Shé hàs à lovely humming bít towards thé end thàt wàs just so light.

6. Water Under thé Bridge: Thís ís à really fun upbeàt song thàt makes you wanna stand on thé edge óf à tall building and sing ít tó thé city. It ís about love, breaking up, and thé water under thé bridge. Thé backup vocals are spot-on. Thé beàt will make you think you are à bít óf drummer and you’ll be tapping tó ít through thé entire song.

7. River Lea: Thís ís à song thàt makes me feel shé opened up her heart and soul and I almost felt like I saw something thàt I had no right seeing. Like when you walk in on à conversation between 2 people and you heard personal things. It wàs beautiful and brings à tear tó my eye each time I hear it. Just some lovely vocals on thís on. It ís à hauntingly beautiful song.

8. Love in thé Dark: Thís ís whàt will remind you most óf thé Adele everyone fell in love with years and years ago. Very strong vocals and à ravishing ballad. Thís will have more covers than you can ever watch on Youtube (my two cents.)

9. Million Years Ago: Thís ís like listening tó Mariah’s ‘My All’ they both make me feel like I’m listening tó à beautiful performer àt à small café thàt hàs more talent than they know whàt tó do but they just like thé simple life and pour their hearts intó thís song. I’ve always loved ‘My All’ but now I feel Adele hàs taken over with thís one. It ís eerily angelic. Shé talks about thé things shé misses from à million years ago.

10. All I Ask: Thís ís Adele. I feel some 60’s and 70’s pop love song and à bít óf country influence on this. Thàt doesn’t make ít sound às inviting às I wished. Because thís ís à lovely song. Shé hits some marvelous notes and once again you want tó learn thé lyrics às soon às you can so you can sing along. I feel thàt shé really did some amazing vocal calisthenics thàt I’m not used tó with her but I love it. I heard from à friend shé wrote thís with Bruno Mars and thàt makes sense if you know thàt and listen tó thé song again. Thé lyrics talk about how tó end à relationship because ít matters because if ít ís ended wrong, whàt if shé ís never able tó love again? Pretty heartbreaking.

11. Sweetest Devotion: Thé intro and outro hàs à little child thàt you can hear à bít and in my mind ít ís her son, Angelo (I’m not sure ít ís him.) Thís song ís one óf my favorites in thís album, you just hear thàt voice and want tó stop everything and sing. I heard à few days ago thàt there wàs à song shé wrote for her boyfriend, Simon, and I can only think thís must be it. It ís so sweet and adorable. I won’t try and explain it, you are on your own with thís song. I hope you love ít às much às I do.

My top 5 are (in no particular order): Send my Love, I Miss You, When We Were Young, Million Years Ago & Sweetest Devotion

Obviously I haven’t à bad thing tó say about thís album. I’ve never written such à long review on an album. But I’ve been dying tó hear her new album and wàs so excited tó get my mitts on it. If you had any doubt thàt shé couldn’t pull ít off again, just put them away because shé shines. I felt heartbroken after listening tó her album, 21 thé first few times. It truly drained me but thís album makes me think thàt Adele ís happy. Sure there are some songs thàt pull àt my heartstrings but I feel happy after each album repeat. Shé hàs thé world in her hands and she’s not gonna let go for à while and I’m quite fine with that.
