Adele On a Roll – Rolling Stone Names ’21’ Best LP. ‘Rolling In The Deep’ Best Single of 2011

Posted by at 11:55 am on December 8, 2011

British singer Adele continued on her train of success on Wednesday as Rolling Stone magazine named her album “21” and single “Rolling In The Deep” the best of 2011.

, who received six Grammy nominations last week, was chosen by Rolling Stone editors for her multi-platinum selling sophomore album — officially the U.K’s best selling album of the 21st century and 2011’s best-selling album in the United States.

” ’21’ was this year’s most stunning pop success, transmuting the young Brit’s personal sorrow — the collapse of an 18-month relationship — into a 13-million-selling smash that leapt across borders and oceans and united everyone from teeny-boppers to baby boomers to hip-hop-heads,” said Rolling Stone editors.

Jay-Z and Kanye West’s “Watch The Throne,” came second on the album list, followed by Paul Simon’s “So Beautiful or So What” at No. 3, Fleet Foxes “Helplessness Blues” at No. 4 and Radiohead’s eighth studio album “The King of Limbs” rounding out the top five.

Adele’s song “Rolling In The Deep,” was named the best single of 2011 by the magazine, as editors described it as the “breakup scorcher to beat all breakup scorchers.”

    Adele’s 19 was strong. 21 is simply timeless. In the past two years, Adele has refined and reinvented her unique sound that always puts her aching yet powerful vocals and lyrics at the forefront. These are songs that could have been released in the 60s as easily as 30 years from now. Adele has injected her trademark piano ballads with the best from several different musical genres including Americana roots and country, r&b, blues and gospel. The music is exciting and simply is. It lives, breathes. I played a couple songs for my mom, who at forty years older than I, generally criticizes my music taste, and the first thing she said was “Wow, this girl really knows how to write a story–those songs are beautiful.”

    Have a nice day,
