Adele returns to the music scene after along awaited hiatus with the comeback album 25 for 2015! Adele rescues us from the sounds of intolerable music coming from mainstream radio with her singing. It is truly a refresher for the music industry out there. Her vocals range perfectly on the high notes to the low notes in terms of signing. Adele returns with a classy enchanted elegant album entitled 25 with her notable vocal range in her singing. Her voice is very thoroughly perfect throughout the 25 album. Every song is an autobiographical love ballad as was the case with her 21 album from the year of 2011.
Hello is the first single off the album 25. Hello is a sorrowful love ballad about saying goodbye to a lover from past times. She called him a thousand times to say that she’s sorry for hurting him so bad emotionally. She really wanted to tell her lover that she was really sorry for all the troubles caused and emotional damage inflicted upon them.
Adele’s singing registers very high on the baritone as she sings her heart out on Hello. Adele uses both the low and high notes in terminology of musical notes on the musical scale. The musical notes sung match with the musical scale from this love ballad composition. Her musical notes are well sung and well spoken! Her singing does register very high on the baritone. The piano looms in a sorrowful mood rather than upbeat or perky. The percussion ensemble is up to par with the song’s mood.
Hello has been the most promoted single and music video from the album 25 since Hello achieved international success ever since being released on the airwaves by radio stations across the planet. XL Recordings really only promoted Hello as the main single for 25 unlike the 21 album from 2011 where Rolling In The Deep, Set Fire To The Rain, Someone Like You, Rumor Has It, Turning Tables, Lovesong, Take It All, and Don’t You Remember were promoted as singles. Other than that, Hello has been the most prominent single from the 25 album.
XL Recordings with Adele put forth a lot of effort into Hello. The video production for the music video is screened at high quality. The monochromatic color schemes such as sepia and greyscale blend in thoroughly excellent with the sorrowful mood of the music video Hello. When you listen to Hello, you will get a feel of nostalgia.
When We Were Young was about reminiscing over past memories of a lifetime. When We Were Young does rather sound similar to another love ballad about a previous past time lover due to a breakup in a relationship. The song When We Were Young is a nostalgic vibe of reality. The song When We Were Young is very nostalgic themed. One day, you’re 15 years of age and the next day you are 50.
The key of E major follows a moderately slow groove of 72 bpm. Adele’s vocals do span two octaves from E 3 to E 5 on the E major scale. She managed to register at E 6 on the music scale with her singing. The moderate use of E major for musical notes on the musical scale is outstanding!
I Miss You is an ode to another previous past time lover that came and went into her lifetime. Perhaps from a previous relationship that Adele broke away from. The love ballad I Miss You is a slow and sweet composition. The musical notes on the musical scale are just outstanding.
Adele takes us to church on River Lea. River Lea has that gospel feeling to it. River Lea is another slow and sweet composition as I Miss You was. She managed to register at E 6 on the music scale with her singing. However she messes around with the musical chords even more on River Lea than any other song on the 25. The chords ranged from C to D to E to F on a major scale on the musical scale.
XL Recordings really only promoted Hello as the main single for 25 unlike the 21 album from 2011 where Rolling In The Deep, Set Fire To The Rain, Someone Like You, Rumor Has It, Turning Tables, Lovesong, and Don’t You Remember were promoted as singles. 25 didn’t have a wide variety array of singles as was the particular case was with the 21 album by Adele. 25 didn’t offer a variety of singles for Adele fans as the 21 album did.
Think of this album as an overnight success because that’s what happened again as was the case with the 21 album. 25 sold sales of millions in terms of weeks. The fact that 25 was an overnight success especially after 4 years of silence in music career is absolutely amazing!
I rate this album 5/5*****!!
