4.0 out of 5 stars England making the best hits, March 18, 2008
This review is from: 19 (Audio CD)
I purchased 19 two weeks ago and listened to it everyday. Going through every song on the album I was interested on who actually Adele Atkins was? I first found out about Adele on ITunes as a free single download (Hometown Glory). It convinced me to find and purchase the album so I can check out everything for myself. I must say that this turned out to be way better than I thought.

What really impressed me about Adele is when i found out how young she was. When I heard her voice it was so mature and smooth (something that puts a smile on your face). When I found out she was only 19 I thought back to when i finally saw Teena Marie perform. For the ones who do not know Teena she has a very controlled and powerful voice, sort of like Christina Aguliara, but Teena looked so small (something like 5'3 maybe shorter). But getting back tot he album I just can not get enough of it. I've read the reviews about critics and consumers comparing Adele to Amy Winehouse.

To me the style of music is simular but the actual music and vocals are totally different. Both Artists are original yet still have a smooth Motown feel to them. While Amy has more of a brickhouse jazz feel to it, Adele has a smooth blues feel to the cd. Adele also writes her own music which most tracks are about heartbrake. Also she performs most of her music on the album as well, something that also impressed me. To me it's a must buy for music buyers and I can see this girl going far with her career.

Decent review but I totally disagree on one thing:

1. Teena Marie's voice has nothing on Christina's.

and

2. How can you stand it anyway? It's screechy and almost whiny! My mom loves Teena but I don't see why.
