As Adele tells our colleagues at Spinner, the soulful songstress' second album '21' is the deeply personal by-product of drunken diary entries, through which the London born singer-songwriter comes to terms with her own flaws.

Inspired by her relationship and the aftermath of a painful breakup with a former lover, the undeniable emotion in Adele's performance stands on its own. Admitting that some of the songs from the new album will simply be too painful for her to perform in the future, the 22-year-old bares her soul in bluesy tunes like 'Someone Like You' and 'Rolling in the Deep.'
