.......when she comes on the radio with "Hello, it's me, wail, wail, wail".
I tell her she needs to get over it and move on, and other less polite things. Clearly I'm not the target audience!!

I just don't get her. Shouty, waily personality and songs that owe more to skikful arrangement and production than any talent on her part.

I think Adele is fantastic but I could never sing along with her songs because in a lot of cases I can't understand the words!

I love Adele she is very talented. You don't millions of albums without having something going for you. I like that she writes her own songs, won't do interviews or photo shoots for the likes of Hello etc. She has lots of criticisms for her her size etc but she just ignores them .

YABU she can't hear you grin

DH thinks she has a wonderful voice so perhaps her cd will be under the tree for him.

I love Adele's voice but I don't get this song. Like the OP I want to tell her to stop mithering the guy and move on grin

Not my cup of tea,far too depressing

Ana Mon 16-Nov-15 19:34:16

I do like some of her songs, and admire her as a songwriter, but it really irritates me the way she pronounces words such as 'table' as 'tayboo'...

Ana Mon 16-Nov-15 19:35:33

(in her songs, I mean, I don't care how she talks in real life!)

Alea Mon 16-Nov-15 20:03:10

Did she used to do the song about "chasing pavements"? I always associated it with debt collectors as I thought she was singing about "chasing payments" [confuse]

Never Mind !

Ana Mon 16-Nov-15 20:13:04

Never mind what? confused

grannylyn65 Mon 16-Nov-15 20:22:59

Never mind I'll find someone like you, was her last 'hit'

Great voiceimo

petra Mon 16-Nov-15 21:45:16

She can do anything she likes. She's great. I can still remember the first time I saw her in 2008.

I like Adele. Great girl, very funny and she has written and sung some brilliant songs. Her album is on my Christmas list.

Deedaa Mon 16-Nov-15 21:59:11

I don't get her at all. Nice enough voice but nothing special and her hair, make up and clothes always look so middle aged,

Iam64 Tue 17-Nov-15 07:23:48

That's a dismissive way to describe Adele, who is a real talent. One of the things to admire about her is the fact she has her own look and doesn't follow the over made up, skinny, big bottomed/big breasts look that so many young women seem driven to aspire towards. Go Adele grin

Mmmm....I'd put her above the likes of Rihanna, Britney et al, but perhaps below Amy W, who in my view had originality and an edge that made her stand out. To my mind, Adele's songs are too formulaic to be considered great, and her voice, whilst ok, is not great either. I like her look but I don't think that's important anyway as a musician. Her songs are bland but well-produced. I'd put her on my "perhaps later" pile of cds, but I can kind of understand her popularity. She has a kind of mass appeal, and perhaps that's enough. She writes her own songs and sings them from the heart. She has a personality that appeals.

Great though? No, not in my view anyway.

I quite like some of Adele's songs and I think she will get better BUT I was in a hairdressers once who played the one I call her 'miserable' album on a loop - I felt depressed when I got out of there.

I have only one favourite "set fire to the rain" the remix version....although I like her voice I do find her songs quite depressing.....she reminds me of Alison Moyet and I cannot stand Hello the latest it has to be turned off until it has finished
