<rant> What set this off is someone tweeting or FBing that Adele is sexy, with a comment about women with curves. I find Adele not sexy at all. She just doesn't have that vibe for me. There are women of her shape who do, but not her.

And about all those Grammys. I don't get it. She is an above-average singer, but her songs are meh.

It's a cruel reversal on the usual conundrum where brilliant song writers (Yip Harburg, Bob Dylan, George Gershwin, etc.) can't sing their way out of a paper bag, so they need a talented singer to make their work sound its best. Adele should consider singing other people's tunes. And/or work with some composers and lyricists who have several hits under their belts, and hone her art.

It could work. As far as I can tell, each of her songs is two or three songs stapled together. She seems to want to show off all her chops in every number.
