    What do you think? I mean I do like her, but there are plenty of other singers out there who are just as good, if not better. Her recent chart success seems a little OTT in my opinion.

    Also, doesn't she remind you a bit of Alison Moyet? Despite Moyet being a much better singer.

    I love her music but I was a little bit disappointed when I listened to the whole of her recent album...
    There are some great songs on there but some of them just don't quite match up.

    However I still think she's a great singer and deserves her success.

    I don't think she's overrated, I really like Adele. Unlike many modern 'singers', she can actually sing, and her lyrics are often quite meaningful. I also think she looks so much nicer than the generic tarty looking x factor hopefuls you see ten a penny nowadays.

    A little bit yes, but they have different voices so I think it would be difficult to compare.

    I'm not usually a fan of music like Adele's but it's not just her and her singing voice that is good, it's her songs and the stories they tell. I like her

    I love her, though I much prefered her first album to her most recent one.
    I think she's worked hard to get where she has got, so her success is very much deserved.

    To be fair, with the advent of the level of technology we have today and people being able to put their music out there, I think it's VERY to be a truly original artist.

    I don't think she is. She has an amazing voice, and meaningful lyrics.
    The album 21, maybe a little. It has some really good songs on there, but some of them don't show of her voice as well as others.

    Maybe biased because I've liked her for quite a while now, loved her first album and her voice in general. She seems like a genuine person too, and isn't trying to be something she's not I guess?
    But yeah I really like Adele

    Like other people have said, I really like her and her voice is amazing.

    I wouldn't call her overrated, but I think radio stations are over playing her songs... Kinda killing them

    Ever since the Brits she has had a bit of overexposure, but her performances of "Someone Like You" on there and on Comic Relief were really spine-tingling. She's got a good voice though, and she's better than fecking Duffy.

    I dont think she's overrated. She's incredibly talented. But I'm getting a bit sick of hearing her on the radio all the time.

    I'm not a huge fan if I'm honest. She obviously has a good voice, I'm not denying that, but for me personally, I like all-round performers. Freddie Mercury she ain't.

    I don't mean for this to sound as sexist as it inevitably does, but............... All our modern female singer songwriters are overrated. We are all looking for our generation's Joni Mitchell but it just isn't there. If any of the current crop of female solo artists were men, we would never have heard of any of them.
