So apparently this was staged but either way it's pretty cool.

Adele's cover of Fat by Weird Al Yankovic will be the greatest-selling single of all time

My opinion of Adele is that she produces simple music for simple people. While I acknowledge that comes across as condescending, I don't necessarily mean it to be. It is clearly very successful for her.

Not to my tastes, however.

A worthy succesor of 21, even if the producers insist on that big "21" balladery. When we were young should have been the lead single. Much better than Hello.

The second half starting with River Lea is the better one. Early favourites Million years ago, All I ask and Remedy. Less sometimes is more, and it pays off in spades. Another stand out is Send my love to your new lover.

Apparently it's on track to smash week 1 sales's record.

Casual misogyny/fat shaming is hilarious!

Yeah, and BigMac had labelled his earlier Rolling in the Deep theory as nonsense. His latest Adele sales theory really baffles the mind.

Then, of course, the Weird Al Fat reference is simply an insult that a 5th grader from 1989 would have used.

I've listened to 25 twice already. I wish there were some more uptempo tracks, but the ballads really showcase her voice well.

Yeah, I'm hoping Diemen just didn't see BigMac's posts.

Holy shit, no I didn't. Really wish I hadn't now. That's pretty ugly speculation, BigMac.

Yeah, that's what my cake joke was in reference to.

I like U2 because Bono and I have similar body image issues.

I was really skeptical of "Hello" for the first minute or so, but that chorus is undeniable.

I wish she'd let Apple Music stream the album.
