Still too early to tell, but she's crazy talented.
Posted by Vicky on Friday, 01.23.09 @ 14:01pm
She's definitely talented, but I'll say it again. I don't think we should even be permitted to vote on an artist that hasn't had at least 10 years in the industry....
Posted by Mike on Saturday, 07.9.11 @ 15:07pm
Obviously VERY early into her career, but thus far I'd lean towards a yes.
Posted by Martin on Tuesday, 08.9.11 @ 17:23pm
bigger chance than Katy Perry and Miley Cyrus...

Very talented, but I don't see her having longevity. I say no.

Still way too early to tell.

The monster success of 21, both commercially and critically, is gonna be a big help.

If she pulls it off again with "23", then I'm gonna have to seriously consider her, but at this point, if she we were to stop making music, artist of the year, one huge album, and one pretty big album isn't quite enough.

P.S. Assuming she will in fact continue her greatness, I did vote yes.
Posted by Paul Kagebein on Wednesday, 02.22.12 @ 18:43pm
Hard to tell right now, but I voted yes because of her talent. She has the voice of a star, and she has the qualities of an angel. While Nicki Minaj and Rihanna are out their making whores of themselves, Adele is showing how nice and caring she is. She's like a female Bono. So I think yes if her career continues swimmingly.

i see female musicians get criticised for marketing on their sex appeal, but never male musicians. who would fall under that?
Posted by GFW on Saturday, 03.3.12 @ 07:21am
Also, i don't get why artists like Rihanna think they're still being controversial and edgy by making vids like the one for "S&M" Madonna pretty much got rid off all the stigmas attached to female sexuality in pop music. Only way they could be really edgy is by doing some illegal stuff and the day i see a vid where RIhanna grinds up on a 5 year old boy is the day i stop watching music vids.

i like her voice!

I champion objective factors like sales over subjective factors almost every time. But Adele is a cautionary tale. Her "21" album has sold over 20 million copies and counting, yet musically it's as mediocre as it gets. This is actually a linchpin of the album's success; it threatens no one. People buy it for the mood less than the songwriting. (A stiff drink may be more cost effective). At the end of the day, years down the line, people will see a phenomenal commercial success, and who am I to deny it. But sometimes it's worth remembering that commercial success isn't everything whether we acknowledge it or not.

She saved popular music.
Posted by mikhail on Saturday, 07.7.12 @ 22:52pm
If she did save popular music then we should consider NOT inducting her. The current mainstream climate is past it's sell-by date.
Posted by Sam on Sunday, 08.12.12 @ 07:02am
popular music don't need daving. It's got Kanye, after all.
Posted by GFW on Sunday, 08.12.12 @ 09:15am
oh dear, how embarrassing.
Posted by GFW on Sunday, 08.12.12 @ 10:12am
Adele is certainly preferable to the legions of party sluts like Kesha and Nicki Minaj. Even so, I still don't find anything amazing or mind-blowing about Adele's music. Hopefully she won't end up like other female singers/musicians who were promoted as serious alternatives to the pop tarts but could never sustain any long-term success/impact (i.e., Norah Jones, Vanessa Carlton, K.T. Tunstall, etc.).

Now here's a voice that shakes the world to its foundations and parts the seas:
Posted by Zach on Sunday, 08.19.12 @ 22:40pm
don't know...i think it's too early to tell..she's talented but not so fantastic!
Posted by elisabetta on Sunday, 01.20.13 @ 13:29pm
People are so jaded by bad pop swill that now they're saying ADELE is talented? Seriously? She doesn't do anything that hasn't already been done. Not to mention the lyrics of the songs on 21 sound like they came off a teenage girl's LiveJournal. No, Adele should not get in
Posted by Marth on Monday, 01.21.13 @ 18:43pm
Marth, you have no taste, the songs on both her albums are extremely well written and mature, some could have came strait from the 70s, I would even put their quality above much of the sappy crap from that era. But I did not come here to reply to your poor taste, but rather to highlight the most sucessful artist, and fastest grown legend status of the new decade so far.

"she is the front (so far) along with Amy Winehouse and numerous boybands of third British Musical Invasion of the US"

These days, music has taken a nose dive with too many artists relying on technology and using auto-tuning but, Adele relies on the power of her voice. In my mind, the only other female singer who has that powerful of a voice is Janis Joplin. Songs like "Rolling In The Deep" show how someone can use thier voice to great effect without using any sort of technology.
Posted by Andrew on Wednesday, 02.6.13 @ 13:35pm
Adele is going to put out a new album this year. Hopefully it will give her a boost. But we don't know when
Posted by Karl Singleton on Monday, 03.17.14 @ 23:06pm
8 million albums sold so far for the classic R&B sounding yet alternitive like "25" penned by adele herself and the best writers in the industry, and it hasn't even been a month. Music critics all over the world are praising her for being the woman that saved the music business and broke numerous records, I look forward to her domination of 2016 the same way "21" dominated 2011. By 2017 she will oficcially be the biggest trend setting musical phenomenon of the 2010s, maybe even 21st century so far. Her and Pharell are the only locks that come to mind for the 2010s. If the rock hall is still running by the time Adele is eligible, she is a solid lock. WELL DONE ADELE.

add "set fire to the rain", "rumor has it", "make you feel my love", "hometown glory"(iffy), "hello", "when we were young", and whatever other songs become huge influential hits ("a million years ago", "i miss you", "all i ask") to essential songs please
