Who could've ever predicted the hurricane that is Adele? She has blasted through 2011 at the top of music charts across the world, leaving her pop competition in tatters behind her. A compelling anti-thesis to idea of the sex-crazed, dance-floor loving pop divas of late, Adele is proving with ease that have a spectacular voice is more than enough to be successful. That, and absolutely amazing music material.
Her latest hit is one song that really hits that idea home - "Set Fire To The Rain", which is one of the two potential singles to follow global smash "Rolling in the Deep". While her previous single was drenched in gospel-tinged soul, "Set Fire To The Rain" is a full-on pop power ballad, grand and epic in scale, with just enough restraint to have listeners entranced. That is, if they weren't already by her spell-binding voice. Even without the voice, the song stands tall as a elegant production. It has a charming orchestral melody, and it accounts for the most emotional and heartfelt lyrics on the whole album. But of course, Adele's powerhouse voice truly makes this song. As she sings, you could literally feel every single solitary emotion the lyrics are trying to convey: sadness, longing, and passion. Not since the glory days of Whitney Houston has a singer had such interpretative power. Adele could take the most stale song in the world and inject soul into it. "Set Fire To The Rain" is amazing song, which allows the British sensation to really soar to heights rarely seen by most female artists today. She is more than just an amazing singer, she is the biggest breath of fresh air that pop music has seen in a long time. The future success of this single is testament to that. And for all those of you who have been itching to get a hold of a dance remix to this song, enjoy the 4 hot remixes on this Vinyl release!
