As I always state on the rare occasions when I actually write a review, a product has to be amazing or terrible for me to bother writing it. This album warranted a review because it is simply amazing.

I had never heard of Emeli Sande but I was intrigued by, of all things, the title of the album. It sounded like something that might be a little deeper than all of the superficial music that has been produced in the last decade. I gave it a preview and was impressed. The one thing that I can say about this album overall, is that it is very uplifting and made me feel better about everything: life, love, and the world. It's not a gospel or Christian album but it still had the ability to draw me in and make me feel something, which most music cannot do these days. You can feel the passion that went into the making of this album. There are no mindless lyrics here (unlike the 4th Maroon 5 album). You can feel how she poured herself into this album. It's as if a renowned poet and talented vocalist got together with an amazing producer and decided to make an album. I was able to listen to this album several times in a row and find something new each time. I am not easily impressed by music anymore but this one took me completely by surprise. It's hard to put into words the kind of feeling that this album evokes but I cannot get enough of it. It's the kind of album that I want everyone in the world to hear.

In short, preview it, I guarantee that if you have refined or mature taste in music, or even remotely like projects that show some real effort, you will thoroughly enjoy this album. There is not a single weak track.

1: Heaven - Great upbeat tempo, lyrics, and hook. A real head-nodder.

2: My Kind of Love - Moving sound and lyrics.

Wow, I live in the U.S. I've never heard of Emeli. I decided to give this album a chance since Amazon was selling the mp3 album only $ 5.00. Plus I stumbled upon Tinie Tempah, Florence + The Machine, Jessie J last year. I love those albums and over course I love Adele, Leona Lewis and Ellie Goulding. I'm now convinced I need to check out the UK charts. There's so much music out there beyond whats popular in the US.

My favorite song on here is "Clown", none can beat it, in my opinion. This is a CD that I can put on and just chill too. It's not overdone and it's not cheesy....it's just right.

I love this album! Emeli Sande Is definitely a breath of fresh air, especially today when a lot of the music doesn't have that much meaning behind it. She's an inspiration.

I love this CD. I have listened to it over and over. It's been hard for me to hear it enough. She has a wonderful voice and a wonderful delivery. And her songs are interesting and mature (no biebercrap).

I have to ding it by a star, however, because there are a couple songs on it that are not as well-produced as the others. Not sure why. They just don't have the same quality of sound.

I hope she records more soon.

Our Version of Events has been on repeat since I downloaded the album. Excellent lyrics, and her voice is very different and great to listen to. The British influence (somewhat obvious since she is Scottish) is definitely present. "Where I sleep" and "Breaking the Law" are fantastic, as well as the single "Next to Me".

What a pleasant surprise. I only ordered this CD because it was recommended related to my other musical choices. I'm so glad I took a chance! It's on permanent rotation right now. That voice! Beautiful, great rang, and spirited. And the songs are very different from a lot of the R&B out there. In fact, I'm not sure I would say this is straight up R&B. There's a folk/blues quality to some of the tracks, but not all. Some of the songs are just as catchy and soulful as any Mary J. Blige song (old Mary of course). At any rate, it feels great to be able to listen to a CD from start to finish again. It's hard to find these days. I'll definitely be buying more of Emile's music in the future.

I bought this when it first came out because of the critical praise this was receiving. It is one of my favorite releases from last year. Much like when Adele's first CD came out I begged people to listen to it and told them how amazing it and she was. No one listened. :) Now they're all huge fans since the 2nd CD. I did the same with this and none of my friends listened again. So, maybe it'll take another CD to get people to take notice. She is going places. Amazing talent.
