#Adele25: 25 tweets on '25'

I bought the new Adele album Friday and, having now spent the weekend with it, offer some thoughts. I decided to tweet them out in what is an incremental music review. It's a bit of an experiment -- I'm curious to see what readers think, both about the use of individual tweets and the compilation of them at the end.

My basic take on "25" is that it is a nice pop record with some excellent songs, but lacks what makes her first two records so good. Let me know what you think.

Send me an e-mail.
