Adele was just 19 when she wrote most of her debut album, a coming-of-age document that doubles as a showcase for a pop soul superstar in the making. The first thing you notice is that voice: husky, expressive, masterfully controlled yet still approachable—a true original. The spare arrangements on “Daydreamer” and the stately, piano-driven “Make You Feel My Love” put her lush alto front and center; on “Right as Rain” and “Chasing Pavements” she takes up the mantle of classic soul, while the more modern “Tired” underscores the timeless nature of her talent.
