Hello, it's Adele and she's coming to break new records in music industry :D
Such a beautiful song, gorgeous video and her vocals are stronger than ever!
Welcome back Adele :)
******
Das ist sie also, die Comebacksingle von Miss Adele!
Gänsehaut, ich spüre jedes Wort das sie mit ihrer Engelsstimme besingt!

Mal sehen wie gross diese Nummer tatsächlich wird!
******
She's back and this is just fantastic. I love this immensely already. I feel like this continues/progresses the narrative from 21 well and opens this next phase perfectly.
**
Do you know what my problem with Adele is, it's not that she isn't technically talented or anything it's that I can't stand her vocal gymnastics. They come across as so overbearing to me that it makes me uncomfortable every time I hear them.

While this isn't anywhere near as unbearable as the overplayed to death mega hits RITD or SLY (At least not yet), it's still a completely boring, over sung and uninteresting piece of monkey crap.
******
I'm far from being a big Adele fan, but this truly is a work of towering pop majesty.
*****
Great!
*****
This track is so memorable and she really delivers. Her second UK#1. UK#1 and Ireland#1. US#1.

Best British Single at The Brits 2016.
Grammy Record of the Year 2017.

Quite strong. I don't expect it to become one of my absolute favourite songs of hers, but it's very good.
*****
There's no question that Adele is at her best when she's powering out dramatic, soaring ballads like 'Hello'. I find this song even more memorable and more emotional than other supposed tear-jerkers in her catalogue such as 'Someone Like You' and 'Turning Tables', but in saying that, this song wouldn't be nearly as impactful sung by any other artist. '21' was enjoyable enough albeit being a predominantly sad record, but if this song is anything to go by, her follow-up record could turn the drama and the universal emotional investment up quite a few notches.

I appreciate what Adele has done to the music industry (i.e. shift away from generic pop to a distinct sound with raw talent), but I am struggling to enjoy this particular track unfortunately.
**
She's had worse.

2.25*
***
Really such a disappointment. Devoid of the power of her previous big hits, this wouldn't even get a mention if it were on "21" for me. I don't dislike listening to it, but I get close to nothing from it. 2.5

Took me a while to warm up to this since I don't particularly like slow songs but this is a masterpiece!

Adele brings out her best vocals in this and the lyrics prove that she's just as heartfelt as she was three years ago. That vocal range is epic as well!
******
Powerful song
****
"21" was kind of a big deal. It basically tapped into just about everyone. Heck, in 2011 I basically exclusively listened to rock & The Weeknd, and I wound up buying the album amidst the hype. And I still rate it very highly, not just for how much I like it, but I also just admire how proficiently Adele could adapt to all those different demographics while still making a cohesive album statement in the process (and thus appealing to those who are after a cohesive album statement!).

But success sets itself up for failure. Ideally you want to tap into the same market you did the last time, but that's so impractical; doing the same thing twice provides inevitable diminishing returns, but doing something different alienates others in the process. But the industry needed Adele, as her success was a significant shot to the arm showing there is still life to the industry. It's no surprise that Adele took quite a while off after "21". After all, how do you follow that up? Is it even possible?!

Here's where "Hello" comes into the picture. Adele's first new single in 3 years and the lead single to "25". Even before the song was released and all that was out was a short teaser, it was immediately apparent to me what angle Adele was taking with it. In essence, it's about reconciling with her "21" muse, but simultaneously, she's talking directly to the audience. After all, "21" came out quite a while ago, and no matter what sort of success you get, there is no guarantee it will perpetuate, something that I'm constantly reminded of by the fact that in 2008, Adele was merely playing second fiddle to Duffy in the blue-eyed soul stakes, but on their next albums, things were so incredibly shifted the other way around.

So that's my favourite thing about "Hello" I think. The way it can break the fourth wall to tell two different stories (that are both very relevant for Adele) with the same words. If I were to have a gripe, it would be that it is a bit on-the-nose about ticking the boxes for the vast majority of her audience. They want to hear her voice and by gum they're going to get it!

Don't get me wrong, I like Adele's voice and she really is impressively distinctive with her belting tones, but I think the mix isn't exceptionally handled. I had concerns going into "25" that it would be a persistent problem, which fortunately it's not, but I just can't help but think she sounds a bit too loud and in your face in this song.

I still quite the song though. It's quite catchy, and for all I say about the inevitable showiness of the track, it's at least paced quite well with that so it's done in a rewarding fashion. I guess my inevitable feeling is 'It's no "Rolling In The Deep"', but then what is? I still think the song pretty effectively accomplishes what it sets out to do, even if *my* best interests aren't necessarily being sought.
***
Not too bad but ultimately not a patch on Rolling In The Deep or, to a lesser extent, Someone Like You. Actually kinds of surprised it's struck such a cord and done so well, I though Skyfall was better and it sunk pretty quickly.
******
love it
*****
I love this. It does bother me that it's only a hit because of who sung it but either way it deserved to be a hit. That chorus is magic and probably her second best single behind Turning Tables.

Great song that has a timeless feel to it. Adele at her best.

Hello from the otterslide...

Saw her sing this live at her recent concert in Melbourne. It's sounds even more amazing live than it does here!
