Sorry Adele. But Aretha is still the Queen.
Adele wrote the song, but Aretha reminds us why she's the best in her cover of "Rolling in the Deep." And she mixes in a bit of "Ain't No Mountain High Enough," just in case you weren't satisfied with your daily dose of '60s soul.
The heavy use of autotune is a bit disappointing, admittedly. Aretha doesn't need that, even at 72 years of age, and it underscores a troubling trend in today's pop music. But the sound is still great, and it's so awesome to hear Aretha still doing her thing.
My queen! The Ain't No Mountain high part was a little odd at first but I can dig it
I thought it was kind of lame at first for her to be releasing a cover album, but now that I'm actually listening to a track of it, that's kind of awesome.
