Water and a flame...
The new album by Daniel Merriweather is actually pretty decent. There are a few skippers, but I love soul singers with some pain in their voice. If anything, it was the song selection - a little sleepy-time, some poor choices.

Check out Adele TV, her site. She's one of the greats.
This track with Wale is an example of the upbeat side of the album, which was unfortunately limited:
