Rolling in the Deep

Song: Rolling in the Deep
Artist: Adele
Album: 21

Holy crap.  Okay... I didn't pay attention to Adele when she came out.  It was just a little too much after Winehouse being so good (and then crashing) and Duffy not fulfilling ANY of the promise made with "Mercy" on her debut album... once Adele was the "next" white girl British soul singer, I'd just had enough and never paid attention.  Mistake.

Well, that was until a couple friends posted "Rolling in the Deep," her new single from upcoming sophomore album "21" on the Face and I decided to get with it.  Whoa!  This song is unbelievable... like  a cross between The Stones "Gimme Shelter" and Gossip's "Heavy Cross."  It's big, bold, and quite the attention-getter.  It was Adel's voice that was spoken of the most upon the release of her debut album "19" and here is why... dang.

She describes this song as a "dark bluesy gospel disco tune."  Dig.
