NME (NME) thought it was the best record of the decade, praising its emotive timbre and her vocals. Huffington Post's Robert Lukas dubbed her "the new Walcott". In The Washington Post, Jason Heller cited Adele as one of the most interesting artists of the decade. He continued: "As much as this music is simplistic, Adele's talent is staggering.... At first, her songs are insular. Then, by the third time the beat and the melancholy are clicking, the world comes along too... With each song, Adele's voice brings home the pain and joy of simply being alive." The Guardian's Alexis Petridis, however, dismissed her album as "[a] prime-time distillation of the meaningless heartbreak of the contemporary song-writing canon".
During an appearance on Australian radio program 'The Kyle and Jackie O Show' on 26 September, Adele talked about the demo she first sent to her label (after being signed by them) and how it only contained the song "[What Have I Done]". An artist she had worked with (whose name she cannot remember) "had gotten a hold of it and I liked it so I sent it to Simon in the States" (Simon Cowell, in charge of UK-based label Syco Music).
With "[Wrecking Ball]", Adele was introduced to producer Paul Epworth at a London studio. Adele's father, Mike Adele, was also in the room. The trio worked for about six to eight hours that day, during which time Adele swapped between guitar and piano. It was a long session, but Adele really liked the song. Epworth had gotten the name "Wrecking Ball" from a boxing ring - the idea of a crashing boxing ring, especially during a heavy fight, and it just stuck.
