Well that's very much a matter of opinion, as I despise her music.

I heard Hammer's U Can't Touch this recently on the radio and I was taken aback by just how not a great vocalist he was. He didn't even have that great of flow.

I think Hammer would even tell you he was no vocalist. Plus, he wasn't really respected as a rapper. But, from 1989 to 1991, the guy was on fire. I was 17/18 during the height of his fame and I definitely dug a few of his songs. (What did I know? ) Then the gangsta rap craze passed him by and he was done.


An artist like Adele makes music that can stand the test of time. She's still early in her career and can only get better. She's barely scratched the surface of her talents. She might sell less units as time goes on, but hopefully that won't matter.

I was 13/14 in 1990/91 when Hammer ruled all. I think most kids I knew respected him more than Vanilla Ice. Hammer made fun, safe music that sold well.

Oh yeah, definitely respected him more than Vanilla Ice. Vanilla Ice had his hit, of course, but the rest of that album was horseshit. Ice made Hammer look like the Beatles in comparison. Plus, he kept on lying about his background all the time and getting called out on it which made him look like a chump. Hammer was a better dancer too and don't forgot those pants.

It doesn't matter from an artistic standpoint, but to put in perspective, if her future albums sell a tenth of what '21' managed to sell, she'll still have one of the best selling albums of any given year. That's how preposterously high her album sales have been over the last two cycles.

Right. Exactly. Artistically she should grow and if she sells a fraction of what 25 has, she'll be fine.

Yeah, that's what I'm concerned about. She would have been able to pull off a stadium tour, easily. Right now the tour's at 105 shows.

No mention of Australia, she's worse than U2!

Except she's going to sing Pop in its entirety, so she's in fact better than U2.
