Adele - 19

2008-02-15 10:46
If she were a Mr. Potato Head, Adele would have Lily Allen's spunkiness, Amy Winehouse's soulfulness and Joss Stone's huskiness. With touching acoustics, soul-searching lyrics and sexy full-bodied vocals it's pretty impressive that she's penned her entire debut album, with the exception of Bob Dylan's "Make You Feel My Love".

But this Brit has much more than pure jazz and soul to offer. You'll find yourself bopping your head to the dancy, Mark Ronson produced "Cold Shoulder", feeling blue on "Crazy For You", turning into a flirty seductress with "My Same" and singing along to "Best For Last".

If you're in the mood for soul with substance, we highly recommend you get out and grab Adele's 19. And even if you're not in the mood, do it anyway. You'll love it once you've got it!
