I think Someone Like You is so boring.

Remember, the other 3 singles she released were far more upbeat; they were what sold the album IMO.

Someone Like You absolutely was the defining song on that album, aside from Rolling in the Deep. It continued to push the album to number one basically everywhere, way after Rolling in the Deep ran its course on the charts.

She won't flop. Of course some sillyl people will think that selling half the albums will be a flop, but it's impossible to have se same success as that 21 (or whatever was called)

Yep, she's pretty much guaranteed to have the best selling album of the next 12 months but is highly unlikely to better 21's performance.

I don't think there'll be a backlash as such, but it will be harder to keep the same number of people interested if she's just treading the same path as before. Damon Albarn described the album as being 'very middle of the road', so it doesn't sound as if she's got too many surprises up her sleeve.

He's just being an arsehole (as usual). Others have said it's fantastic, so i'd rather believe them than anything he says. Noel Gallagher said bitchy things about "21" too so these hasbeens are clearly just bitter about her success.

I think it will at least sell 10 million, a little more than what 1989 has currently sold worldwide.

Stick has sold 10 million? Reminds me that time when Shania sold like 20 million and nobody cared, hahahaha

^ Gee Adele likes "wishing" a lot. She should get herself a wishing chair !

I do like Adele and she is great fun when interviewed. But have to say that blog reminds me of something Lady Gaga would write.

That preview clip DOES sound very middle of the road, I was expecting something extraordinary after all this wait

Yeah, I wasn't wowed by that clip and sounds like it could easily have come from 21, but will reserve judgement until I hear the whole song.
