    Pretty sure it’s the best selling offering of 2011 so far…not 2010.

    • dipshat

      Oh Brad Wete does this every week!

    • Joseph Brownell

      Glad you caught that too…. like a couple weeks ago in the magazine when they mistook Martina Mcbride for Miranda Lambert in the Aretha Grammy’s Tribute….

      • Lesley

        I love her body, such a handful and was amazing

  • ethel merman

    It’s a great CD and the first time I’ve heard listened to one and instantly thought “Grammy winner.”

  • Justin

    Never thought I’d see Adele going 4x platinum in the UK and taking the #1 spot in the US (for two weeks in a row, no less)…she really has come a long way from when “Hometown” was a free download on iTunes. Very happy for her. She has a timeless voice.

  • jpratm

    Good for her.

  • anikes

    I have been listening to that Album none stop since it game out. It is AMAZING!

    • LOL

      What’s “amazing” about it? That word means nothing now due to overuse.

      • lola

        Oh, LOL, I couldn’t agree more. EVERYTHING is “AMAZING” in pop culture. I get so tired of hearing that word. Um, how about “fantastic”, “superb”, or even the throw-back “awesome”…seriously, it’s almost a joke how many times one hears “UH-MAZZ-ING” anymore.

      • Mardyfella

        You spoilsports. 21 IS amazing.

  • Kelly

    The Dropkick Murphy’s new album is “Going Out in Style”.

  • Dee Jones

    Good for Adele. I like her style of singing. Also good for Marsha Ambrosius, she`s another great talent. KEEP SUPPORTING REAL TALENT!

    • Kyra Sedgwick (not)

      Okay, on that note — Justin Nozuka!

  • Jane

    Wonderful news! Her success is well-deserved.

  • Ann

    Two Brit ladies on Top! Great music! Hopefully this trend is here to stay!

  • dm

    awesome! great voice, great CD. Love her, wish she would tour the states.

  • Johnny Adams

    I cant believe Now is on its 37th edition, i remember buying the first one when it came out.

    • Mardyfella

      We’re up to 78 in the UK. Makes me feel really, really old.

  • john t.

    maybe music isn’t dead after all…

  • buddymoore

    I’m glad to see great albums like this doing well. It gets tiring seeing bands like Black Eyed Peas top the charts.

  • Renee

    I love her and her song “Someone Like You”

  • Millicent

    I love this CD it is fantastic! I haven’t heard a good CD in awhile where I listen to it without skipping a song. My favorite song is He won’t go. If you haven’t got the CD you need to pick it up today. Her voice is rich and soulful!
