winehouse and adele both have a certain potentially grating quality. they can be quite listenable but often teetering on that line of horrendousness. adele is the worst offender obv, just cos winehouse at least wrote better songs.

Grating but also potentially emotionally affecting - to hear the traditionally unglamorous (or unsoulful?) London accent breaking through the glamorous Americanised singing voice.

hello, easy on me and someone like you?

Easy on me is undeniably brilliant. Probably her best. Flicked through the rest of the album and wasn’t grabbed
 
I’ve been trying to get my mates to let themselves love easy on me, and I’ve worn some of them down. It’s great to love big new anthems that my mum also likes

she almost never hits the mark. it seems a simple forumla she could repeat ad infinitum but no. 99% of her music is godawful.

Also Macy Gray, Joss Stone, Gabrielle...

Gabrielle is good you ignorant son of a donkey! No way does she deserve to be filed in the same bracket as Joss Stone, although I might pretend to like Joss Stone because of just how repellent her voice is.

Even Leona Lewis had one better song than Adelle, proper Islington gooner, yes she's irritating and everything she does is grating in the extreme, but Adele just could not make something like this, she's just too much indebted more to the idea of Kent. Leona owns her crapness, Adele doesn't, she genuinely believes it.

The problem with Adele is she just tries too hard to sound like Marsha ambrocius or Estelle, one of those British neo-soul divas, but cos she can't pull it off, whilst believing she can, it comes across as worse than tawdry. Your mum will like anything with a wailing bird on it, I could give her tonnes of Turkish schmaltz and she'd dump your dad in an instant.
