yeah, i think adele is really fucking overrated. she's talented for sure, but come on. plus like zootomic said, the way she's being pushed down everyone's throats just makes me not even give her a chance. i could find her albums total perfection but i'll never know.

I can't really understand why 21 has sold so many copies. I like the album, but it's all off the power of ONE single. ONE. I think I've heard another song on the radio twice total and that's it.

I feel so hypocritical being upset by how many albums she's selling. It's good to see ANY album sell that many copies, I suppose, but...damn.

Here in Belgium there two songs of her that got, and still get, overplayed: Rolling In The Deep and Set Fire To The Rain. I haven't listened to 21 and I normally don't listen to the radio but I've heard each of those two songs at least 20 times.

i've never heard the second one, but someone like you is what's getting overplayed here too. and i'm like you, i don't listen to the radio at all and still somehow hear her all the time. are any of her songs not about being burned in a relationship?

I've heard Rolling in the Deep and Someone Like You at least 30 times each, unwillingly, and now I openly loathe her.

No idea as I've only heard two songs of hers.

The worst part about it all is that her songs are actually decent but I kinda hate them now.

Not really, because the thing's a loose concept album. I really do like it and think you should give the whole thing a shot.

Not to turn this into an Adele thread but I am happy seeing someone who seems to be genuinely talented actually having a hit single and selling loads of albums for once. Both her music and even her image do not fit with the standard cookie-cutter crap that tends to dominate popular music which I find refreshing...

I agree, and was going to say that. I'm happy there's someone with actual talent on top again. Just waaaay overexposed and her music ain't that good.

Yeah, when Teenage Dream, the epitome of label-approved, airbrushed cookie-cutter pop bullshit is one of the only other million-sellers out there, I can appreciate Adele a bit more. Take the best moments of every Katy Perry song to date (the MUSIC, not their videos ) and string them together for four minutes and the result wouldn't come close to Rolling In The Deep. Awesome song, one of the best #1 singles in ages.

The album is really samey and average though.
