Absolutely everyone else on the planet, take a seat. Adele’s most anticipated album of the year, 30 has crashed onto the charts, and we are speechless. With every single track offering a new funk and flavour to the legendary artist’s sound, 30 has wiped out the competition lining up to give us that Friday feeling.
Streaming the 12-track album inspired by her divorce, independence, motherhood and personal failures, we can confirm Adele did not go easy on embracing it all to curate a dynamic playlist so riveting and mystifying her six year break can be forgiven in a heartbeat. With frank lyricism combined with an unmatched ear for hypnotic melodies, Adele certainly licks her wounds in style.
Chart-climbing track “Oh My God” offers the ideal triumphant gospel-esque track to march through a breezy underground station to, closely followed by an unexpected diversion from her sombre ballads with a beat-heavy “Can I Get It”. Ear-tickling synths immersed within rich soul symphonies re-calibrate the generation-specific genre of Adele’s music, making “30” a true gift for all. Helming her knack to write lyrics extracted directly from the soul, the fourth album is the pure embodiment of Adele’s stratospheric range and talent. We can’t “Hold On” any longer, and will be busy listening to it on repeat for the foreseeable.
