Adele '21' - Track By Track Review
The singer-songwriter stuns with her heart-wrenching second album...
Red Hot Chili Peppers collaborator Barbra Streisand, who passed on recording it – leaving it up to Adele to bring it to life, which she does perfectly. A beautiful yet moving version of the track, proves to be another highlight of 21.
11. Someone Like You
It maybe a cliché, but Adele has saved the best until last with this heartfelt and enchanting piano ballad. Thought to be the second single from 21, Adele has teamed up with Wilkins again for Someone Like You, which tells the story of coming to terms with a failed relationship. Reminiscent of past hit Hometown Glory, this gut-wrenching song has left us with goosebumps. It’s sad but beautiful and displays Adele at her best – marking the perfect end to what has been in our eyes, a faultless album.
