Adele 21

Adele's sophomore album hit the air waves yesterday and it is already in heavy rotation at my house.

The reviews are rolling in as fast and furious as her spellbinding vocals.

"She wails harder and writes bolder, piling on the dramatic production flourishes to suggest a lover's apocalypse."

"Overall, "21" shows that Adele, now 22, is towering in the same landscape where some of her contemporaries, bee hived or not, have lost all of their bearings. Who knows what damage she'll exact for "30".

Hear, hear - I agree with all of that and then some. But it could be the long love affair with this version of Lovesong that really got me going.

There's a fire starting in my heart...
