We’ve been waiting on Adele’s new album for what feels (conservatively) like an eternity or two, and now the blessed day has come: 30 is finally here, and as Vogue’s Keaton Bell wrote in his review, it’s “a deeply hopeful album…that represents a dynamic leap forward for the Queen of Hearts.” There are sob-inducing bangers like “Easy on Me” and “Cry Your Heart Out,” more upbeat tunes like “Can I Get It” and “Love is a Game,” and even one song—“My Little Love”—that was written as a lullaby for Adele’s son. In other words, to paraphrase Saturday Night Live’s Stefon, this album has everything. (Seriously, have you heard “To Be Loved”? Tears!)
Adele’s music more than stands on its own, but we’re living in 2021, baby, which means that any successful album release is judged at least in part by the amount of Twitter discourse it inspires. 30 is definitely delivering on that front, with social-media users logging on to share just how emotional the album has made them (and throwing in a few memes while they’re at it). Below, find the very best Twitter reactions to Adele’s brand-new album.
