CHASING PAVEMENTS
:: Adele ::
21 January 2008 / XL / 1 Trk CD
By JA

This is the single proves that Adele can surpass Winehouse and Nash by sounding suitably better and more substantial. “Chasing Pavements” is a pretty mixture of jazz and molten, sweeping pop. Whilst the younger end of the national music press and the middle class legionsof Radio 1 are already championing her rather excessively, it’s the broad appeal of such a talented voice and the spellbinding quality of the song that’s the eventual winner. It’s pop without compromise and with a credible resonance too, that doesn’t reek of bandwagon-ism or corporate grooming. A rare commodity indeed.
