We knew this was going to be well-received, but it’s nice to actually see it in writing.
For years we had been living in a world torn apart by the lack of new music from Adele.
But that all changed Friday when the other British Queen blessed the Earth with new music, and we remembered what it was like to feel again.
Fans and celebs alike universally approved of Hello, the 27-year-old’s first single since 2012, but what did music connoisseurs have to say about the video??
Check out our review roundup (below):
Billboard started off the reviews with a lot of confidence in the British songstress, saying:
“Hello [is] a soaring new ballad that offers the first taste of the British singer’s highly anticipated third album, 25.
The title is apt for a comeback song with such excitement behind it”
Entertainment Weekly, on the other hand, went with a more technical approach, praising director Xavier Dolan beautiful work, saying:
“As if the return of Adele wasn’t a big enough deal on its own, the 27-year-old singer went ahead and made history with her first music video since 2011: the six-minute video for Hello is the first of its kind to be shot on IMAX cameras.”
Rolling Stone offered up their critique on Adele’s follow up to Skyfall addressing the haunting lyrics, saying:
“The video mirrors the elegiac track, which finds Adele singing, ‘Hello, it’s me/I was wondering if after all these years, you’d like to meet/To go over everything/They say that time’s supposed to heal you/But I ain’t done much healing’ over a minimalist ballad.”
Seems like Hello is going over well all across the board!
