None.

Personal Review:
 So for awhile Adele was everywhere, you could not go a day without hearing of her, I believe there was something about her dramatic weight loss, then marriage and a baby, not entirely sure though about the last two. Anyways, Adele is basically one of the greatest female vocalists of the current generation.

 The album opens with the song “Rolling in the Deep” (Note to self: Don’t leave Adele on 45RPM), so the song opens with some drums, and they’re kind of the best. Adele begins to sing, and every line in the song is like a build up to that phenomenal chorus, and it’s absolutely fantastic. Adele is simply one of the greatest singers. She’s like amazingly talented too. After that we go onto the track “Rumour Has It” and look at that, it opens with more drums, I think Adele likes drums. Anyways, we have a nice vocal build up to the chorus, and then Adele just lets out that chorus and it’s absolutely fantastic. This girl can sing. Such a great song. After that we go onto the track “Turning Tables” and it starts off with piano this time, and you sure can hear all the emotion in Adele’s voice, she just puts it all into her music, and she’s great. Adele has so much emotion in her music. Then comes “Don’t You Remember” and it has soft guitar playing opening the track, and once more, Adele hits it out of the park with another emotionally fueled track – and it’s absolutely beautiful. How is this woman so talented? Then we go to one of the most known Adele songs “Set Fire to the Rain” and it’s another stunning track, and Adele just delivers it perfectly. The A-Side closes with “He Won’t Go” and it definitely has that soul vibe to it now, and at first you begin to think it’s not that good of a song, then Adele begins to let it all out, and it gets good! It’s not really my type of song.

 The B-Side opens with the track “Take It All” and it’s another emotionally fueled ballad, and Adele gives it all again. She just continues to prove how talented she is, song after song. Then we go onto the song “I’ll Be Waiting” and it comes off really pop sounding, and it’s just really different from the other songs. I’m really not sure how I feel about these tracks. “One and Only” comes next, and Adele once again continues with the really deep and meaningful ballad like tracks, with lots of piano and drums. “Lovesong” comes next, and it has some soft guitar and piano playing opening the track, and Adele begins to sing, and it’s really slow. The B-Side hasn’t been as impressive as the A-Side was. The album closes with the track “Someone Like You“, so at least it’s ending on a positive note. Which is good! Anyways, the song is another well known one, and it’s extremely amazing. Best way to end this album.
