Not that she needs need my help, but I’m posting a little plug for Adele here, whose new album, 21, is stunning. (It was released yesterday in the U.S.) No point in reviewing it; there’s a nice little piece on NPR’s First Listen, which as of this moment still offers the whole album streaming for free.┬áThe Tiny Desk Concert is worth checking out, too.

I can’t argue with the critics that say, vocal prowess notwithstanding, she still has a long way to go as a lyricist. But that’s kind of like saying Bob Dylan wasn’t a great singer — it’s sort of beside the point.
