"Adele’s much-heralded new album is set to be all-conquering, if you ever had any doubt. The songs are powerhouse, the performances bravura, the emotions intense as the British superstar wrings every last drop of heart and soul from tearjerking ballads and triumphalist pop. Grappling with guilt, shame and insecurity over her recent divorce yet infused with a life-affirming sense of liberation, self-forgiveness and burgeoning new romance,
Adele Adkins has made what might just be the most potent everywoman album since Carole King’s 1971 classic Tapestry. Or at least since Adele’s own 2011 world-beating classic, 21.
King is an obvious reference point because, despite twists of sonic modernity, the arrangements are deceptively simple, relying on organic instrumentation with piano and voice to the fore, often understudied by Hammond organ and lustrously old-fashioned strings. But also because Adele shares King’s gift for transmuting feelings into singalong gold. Her deep, rich, fluid and expressive voice may be Adele’s most obvious superpower, but her songcraft is of the highest order. This is her fourth album, and I don’t think she has put out an actual dud song yet, which is a rare accomplishment.
. Compared with the youthful heartaches that inspired earlier albums, this is the motherload.
“I’ll be taking flowers to the cemetery of my heart,” is the opening line of cinematic opening song, Strangers by Nature, which is light relief compared to the penultimate, seven-minute showstopping ballad To Be Loved, on which Adele confesses her deepest anxieties over slow piano chords from co-writer Tobias Jesso Jr, building to a testimonial finale so big that she sounds as if she might blow out her vocal cords. Her voice reaches its absolute limit, stretching for the final roaring notes of “Let it be known that I tried!” in a way that is almost shocking to hear, the raw emotion accomplishing something beyond musical finesse."
"Overall, however, far from another mere rebottling of Essence of Adele, 30 turns out to present an invigorating series of unpredictable musical choices, though none so far-out as to alienate her loyal legions. While there may not be any musical juggernauts here on the scale of 21’s “Someone Like You” and “Rolling in the Deep,” taken as a whole, it’s Adele’s most thoroughly satisfying and rewarding full-length."
