Adele and James Bond

Last week, the smoothest voice in the industry met the smoothest intelligence agent of all time during the international release of "Skyfall," Adele's whack at the newest James Bond movie anthem. With her bellow channeling Shirley Bassey overtop the haunting orchestral army and swooping melody, it only seems fitting that the UK's young gun vocal superstar should provide the powerful soundtrack to Britain's iconic fictional hero and his dangerous Blockbuster escapades.

What do you think? While I'm not overly drawn to the melody, I can't deny that the grand vocal and instrumental arrangement - as well as serious star quality - is already that of legendary.
