I don’t like a lot of “popular” music. I’d even go so far as to say that I seek out music that will never be popular. However, I do understand why certain music becomes gigantic and global. Sometimes a talent emerges that is simply undeniable and it reaches everyone in its path. Such an artist is Adele. I may catch hell for liking her from some of my metal and hardcore friends, but I don’t really care. I like what I like and I stand by my choices. Nobody sings like Adele, and she seems to have a lot of attitude and doesn’t appear to take too much crap from anyone…and that appeals to me. She sings with a lot of fire, emotion, and passion, and those are timeless traits in music, traits which are sorely missing in much of what I hear that is considered “popular.” I hope she continues to release music on her own schedule, for the right reasons, because when she is inspired, no-one can beat her.
