In a crowded pop music marketplace, Adele stands alone. Her lovely contralto voice, unblemished by Autotune or vocal effects, and her commitment to soulful material instead of club-influenced dance music, make her one of a kind. In particular, her appoggiatura (meaning "grace note") vocal embellishments create natural tension in her music that most other pop singers can't match, and when you combine that with her vocal range, which is exceedingly rare in pop music, you get something very special.
What's more, she's working with a great team of collaborators on her new project: songwriter/OneRepublic frontman Ryan Tedder, former Sessions bassist Tobias Jesso Jr., and producer/Gnarls Barkley member Danger Mouse are all confirmed contributors to 25.

Agree with the previous reviewer. Nothing great but listenable. I got the vinyl but disappointed with the pressing.
Adele 25 is yet another exquisite CD by the songstress. Adele's powerful, soulful voice never disappoints. In this work, the songs are not as sad as her previous CD. I must say that this is the second CD I bought from Barnes&Noble which did not offer the bonus tracks, as the case was with Hozier. I didn't realize it until I got home. I will not buy anymore CDs from B&N unless they change that. It is misleading advertising. iTunes does not have Adele's bonus tracks either.
I got this album NEW 3 times... From two stores, I may add. While the music is what I expected and I was mostly pleased with the sound of the album itself I had to take all three copies back to the store. All three copies and a highly audible skip or skips in different tracks right out of the sleeve. I cleaned the albums (each a few times), clean and re-level the table, and tried a few players as well. I know with vinyl you may get some nifty pop and they come with some inconsistencies but this was more than that. After the third try I gave up.
This is a great album, I got mine from vinyltreasure.com, they have good suggestions
another masterpiece from the Queen! VIVA!
After purchasing Adele's last album, I was really looking forward to this much-anticipated album. I played the entire album, all the way through. I know that sad love songs do well and resonate with a lot of people, but this album surpasses expectations! It's "music to slit your wrists by"...REALLY down...except for the last song. Maybe she thought after all that sadness that she'd leave on a high note. I can't say that I disliked it, but I won't be listening to it as much as I thought. If you need a good cry, this music will definately help you with that!
