I ain't gonna lie. I am totally digging this Adele song from the new James Bond movie. I'm too stuck on my dick rock to really have given Adele a chance, but wow...
The things I like about this song:
-- The classic instrumentation. It's basically orchestral.
--Adele's vocal range. I've heard her described as a "soul" singer, and I haven't heard enough of her stuff to disagree, but what I hear is a little bit of Patsy Cline, that same mournful/hopeful quality, the ability to go from smaller low notes to bigger high ones. Have to say, I'm pretty amazed.
--The way it rhymes "Skyfall" with "Crumbles."
Let this be a lesson, kids. Dick rock is all good and great, but it doesn't hurt to expand your horizons.
