46. "Lovesong" - track ten from 21 (score 6.19)


45. "Crazy For You" - track five from 19 (score 6.45)


44. "Painting Pictures" track thirteen from 19 (score 6.53)


43. "Need You Now" bonus from track from 21 (score 6.68)


42. "That's It, I Quit, I'm Movin' On" track three from 19 disc 2 (score 6.82)


41. "Lay Me Down" track thirteen from 25 (score 6.94)


Kicking off the first six tracks of the rate we have a range of songs from all three albums 19, 21 and 25, two of which are deluxe tracks from their respective albums. I'm quite surprised to see Lovesong so low but then at the same time I am quite pleased Crazy For You came in second from last. For me there are no major fatalities in this round of the results but Lovesong did receive a -1 and an 11 so there is still quite some love for it. The Tobias Jesso Jr penned track "Lay Me Down" is a bit of a grower, but in comparison of the songs that are yet to come it definitely deserves it's place at the bottom of the rate. Poor "That's It, I Quit, I'm Movin' On" even received a 0 from Dandy and I believe I was the highest rater on this one with a 9.

No surprises so far, apart from "Lovesong", as I do like that one, but coming from such a strong album though, it had to happen.

Aww, 'Lovesong' taking the wooden spoon is a bit of a travesty sad.gif. I get why people wouldn't take to it as the whole thing feels quite bleak and lifeless and repetitive, but all of that really works with the song's sentiment for me.

And I really like her verison of 'Need You Now' with Darius Rucker, possibly even more than the original.

It is a shame but then again I imagine most would rate it in their lower half for 21.

Sorry for the delay in the results continuing - I got so excited with preparing to see her on Friday I got very sidetracked!



40. "Now And Then" track fourteen from 19 (score 7.01)


39. "Can't Let Go" track twelve from 25 (score 7.17)


38. "Why Do You Love Me" track fourteen from 25 (score 7.46)


37. "First Love" track seven from 19 (score 7.52)


36. "I Miss You" track three from 25 (score 7.63)


Kicking off round two of the results we have another 19 deluxe track of Now And Then. Averaging at a 7.01, this songs lowest score was a 3 from Dandy and a 9 from Callam Hood made it the highest score for that song. Yet another track I am indifferent to from 19 but I get the feeling from a song that scored most middle mark scores that I am not the only one. Up next is the bonus track "Can't Let Go" from 25 which is probably my favourite of the Target deluxe tracks, with four people including Jester, Karma and Burbe giving it a 7. It's such a shame only in the US were there deluxe tracks as this one is certainly a great one. Why Do You Love Me the final deluxe track from 25 is ahead at number 38 by some distance. Only 0.06 points infront at number 37 is another track from 19, First Love, which is not one I particularly re-listen to but has faired quite poorly as the fifth "19" track to leave thus far. Yet the first proper fatality so far is track three from 25, "I Miss You", which generally got a lot of praise when 25 was released back in November. A lot of people drew comparisons to Florence And The Machine, even with the track getting one eleven overall and Liam was one of four people to give it a score of 9. I can't help be bitter that All I Ask wasn't the first standard edition track to leave. In the next round we lose one of the biggest songs from 21, any guesses as to which though?

Yeah I thought 'I Miss You' would have more support too. Don't quite get the draw of the song myself though. The instrumentation and lyrics are great and it all sounds very 'impressive', but there's not enough there to really hook me in and want to listen again. I guess it lacks a strong melody - something I always appreciate in her stuff.

It pales in comparison as well to the rest of 25 I find with lack of meaning.

35. "Take It All" track seven from 21 (score 7.78)


34. "Sweetest Devotion" track eleven from 25 (score 7.85)


33. "My Same" track ten from 19 (score 7.93)


32. "Rumour Has It" track two from 21 (score 7.96)


31. "Melt My Heart To Stone" track six from 19 (score 7.99)


I absolutely adore Adele's description of the track "Take It All". Much like the track Remedy with 25, the song kick started the writing of the album 21 and was the only song written for the notorious break up album while Adele was still with her boyfriend. Frank was one of two people to give this one a 10, and with a gosepl twinge (quoting Adele wahey!) it's certainly an excellent addition to 21. Up next is my second to least favourite standard edition 25 track, Sweetest Devotion. Adele is probably my favourite artist, but I can't help think of her decision over including her sons laugh on this track when she is so keen to protect him from the public and give him a normal childhood. Then again I believe other artists including Beyonce have done this, so it's not entirely new ground. A pleasant track to say the least, this is roughly where I'd pitch the track overall. American Oxygen rated the track with a 3, which is one of the lowest marks as Sweetest Devotion mostly received top end marks of 6's and 7's. Just infront are two of my favourites tracks - My Same and Rumour Has It (cry.gif). My Same was written about the childrens author Laura Dockrill, Adele's best friend and Rumour Has It was inspired by her own friends believing rumours and speculation over the break up and Adele's subsequent attempts at dating. Rumour Has It is the first track from the singles section of the rate to leave, which pains me as Mace Spindu and Bart both gave it 6.5. Closing the round (very narrowly), we have Melt My Heart To Stone which comes in a number 31 with an aveage score of 7.99. 19 suffers major blows next round, with three more tracks going, but will 25 or 21 be most safe? PREDICTIONS PLEASE!

Mostly fond of that section, though I've never cared at all for 'Take It All'. I like the story behind 'My Same' and generally enjoy songs about artists' (platonic) friendships as it's not a theme explored enough in mainstream music I feel. Always found some of the lyrics a bit clumsy though which detracts from it. 'Sweetest Devotion' is quite a touching and fitting final thought on '25', and 'Rumour Has It' is always great to hear, if marred a little by its underwhelming chorus after such a captivating lead-in. 'Melt My Heart To Stone' is so underrated though - in another world it'd be a signature track of hers. Sounds like such a classic to me. <3
