Adele – Rolling In The Deep Review
Adele’s first major single has become an instant success not just in the US but also worldwide. What is most notable about the track ‘Rolling in the Deep’ is its strong emotion, apparently anger that is conveyed not just through the lyrics but through the beat. It is not surprising that Adele was all fired up when she recorded the song. The producers might have seen that flare in her, prompting them to immediately set up and record the track in an instant.
The ballad is something out of the ordinary. Instead of being typically sorry and whiny, the song expresses anguish in a way that does not totally sound awry and destructive. It stands out because it is emotionally charged, something that people do not usually obtain from just about any other song.
The history of the track is equally interesting and can explain the reason behind its phenomenon. Adele was mending a broken heart from a bad breakup when she wrote the ballad. She still had fire on her belly when she recorded the track for her first album.
The producers had to make sure Adele’s emotions were still at the heat of the moment during the recording session. What was intended to be a demo on the first recording was deemed perfect to be the final or album version of the track—complete with all the hurt and anger from an emotionally battered singer.
