I don't think I need to introduce Adele...and, although I have heard some of her songs before and was certainly curious to hear more, I had so far not bought any CD from her.
A recent browse into a JB Hifi store while my car was being washed drew me to my favourite section of this gigantic music emporium, the Blu-Ray concerts. I have said before than I can't find a better soind quality than a well recorded Blu-Ray disc and this one is no exception. But a big surprise was in store for me, as I didn't waste any time to listen - and watch - this amazing performance as soon as I got back home. My wife dropped everything to be with me and we were soon like two teenagers at their first live performance!
This girl is amazing! Not only is sheextremely pretty, but funny, witty, vivacious and can she sings!
She draws you into her emotions and lyrics and manage to make you feel that she sings just for you and she achieves this monumental performance barely moving on stage! A far cry from Madonna or Michael Jackson, but a stunning piece of music nevertheless. She is certainly helped by a great team of musicians and back singers. Her pianist in particular, specially when playing solo, plays the perfect counterpoint or support to Adele's stories, from the most delicate ballad to the jazziest beat. The filming is quite good too, with maybe 20 cameras - I like the close-up on the hands of the pianist or the top shot on the drums and the close-ups on the supporting singers!
Great entertainment, great sound, great photography and obviously fabulous songs by a very talented Adele!
