This is such a bummer of a song. I mean, it's beautiful, but solemn in a way most Bond songs aren't. The first two DC bond songs are stomping rockers. I feel like this bodes well for the movie and a more serious tone, though.
And jeez, how far along was she when she recorded this? Girl's about due, isn't she? It's amazing she can retain her vocals with that going on.
I think the song is great. I think Adele is great. But I think she could have some better takes on this one. Certain parts don't seem as powerful as they could have been. Her performance in the verses are great. Her performance in the chorus is just good. Would have really loved some powerful and high vocals in that last chorus.
