Definitely this sounds like the Lionel Ritchie opening- I'm not fond of this song - it's the great Adele vocals and the video is stellar but the song eh -
I have listened to the song a few times and I love it. It is typical Adele. I was not that impressed or fond of it at first. I still will not buy the song or album---I spent all my extra money on my #1 girl---Carrie.....
To me, Adele is an over rated singer -- there are many singers better than Adele. To me, Carrie Underwood is much much better, she is more diverse than Adele. In short, to me, Adele is boring.
Adele is one of the best singers this world has right now. Her and Carrie need to team up for a duet. Literally, the world would implode. Okay, well not literally, but you know what I mean. "Hello" is so good. Expect the 2017 Grammy's to be called the Adele's. Which I'm fine with that. Carrie sweeps the country categories and Adele gets the rest.

^^ I would love for Carrie and Adele duet.
Finally listened to the whole song all the way through. It is beautiful. It isn't "exciting" like Rolling in the Deep, but exciting isn't what I'm looking for when I listen to Adele. I'm looking for haunting melodies, gorgeous vocals, and raw emotion and I think this song does that.
Its pure Adele. its even a newer more polished Adele, and that may be its problem for me....
Its everything you want from an Adele song. and I do love the verses. ,,,,But the chorus is just a little "too adele" without having a really solid hook to keep in your mind....
She is clearly at the top of her game and I would never question her artistry or the artistry of the team she works with..... But this is a little too close to Someone like You without having that grabbing melody....... I am already ready for the next single.....ha ha ha ha......(I have yet to buy an Adele album and after this I am still hesitating.....)
Her total sales in just three days is 750,000.
After listening to 'Hello' a few more times, I seriously don't get the hype. I guess people would buy dog **** if it had Adele's name on it...
I think it's a beautiful song and I guess it just depends whether you are a fan of her kind of music. I do think she is one of the best singers at expressing emotion. I have a friend that is just gushing over the song and Adele's ability to express emotion. She said even though she can't relate directly to the lyrics, Adele makes her feel like she can. I was always (still am) a Sarah McLachlan fan and when it comes to artists like her and Adele, I like them and their music for two reasons - it is relaxing, peaceful, "mood" music and both are stellar vocalists. Of course, I do think a lot of the hype just had to do with how long it's been since she released music. If she had a "23" album instead of "25" I don't think the hype would have been as big since there wouldn't have been as much time waiting.
I ****ing love this song. Have it on repeat.
She really is. I want to see her break NSync's record for first week sales. I will have to contribute to that!
Hello is so beautiful. I love it. The emotion in her voice is incredible.
The song is boaring.
She opens with 1.1 million downloads and 63 million streams, debuting at #1 on the H100.
