wow, this has to be the hardest so far for me.

Hometown Glory vs Stronger than me (both great débuts)
Chasing Pavements vs Take the box
Cold Shoulder vs In my bed/ You sent me flying
Make You Feel My Love vs F*** me pumps/Help yourself
Rolling in the deep vs Rehab (both their signature songs)
Someone like you vs You Know I'm No Good
Set fire to the rain vs Back to Black (by far my favourite songs from both artists)
Rumour has it vs Tears Dry on Their Own
Turning tables vs Love Is a Losing Game

a total cop out this time for me, but its 6 a piece. its so tough for me though, because i really do feel adele had the better songs initially. while they both delivered amazing songs on the second albums and then all my favourites were vs each other. the best album by far though is amy`s `back to black`.

Amy's second album alone for me is so much better than anything most British females have ever done. I love Adele but Back to black is more worthy of 25/30 million sales than 21 is.

9-0 for adele in my eyes, amy winehouse is only rated because she is dead and i have never liked her music despite her and adele having similar sounds, i like rehab but its not better than rolling in the deep, so 9-0 adele

tbf she was rated whlle she was living just not as highly, early death has a tendency to put you in the 'genius' camp. Rehab is one of her most annoying imo and not in the same stratosphere as RITD, but Love is a losing game is quality.

i'll go with about 7-2 to Adele

Besides Emeli Sandé, Adele is the most overrated singer/songwriter of our generation.

Agreed. Amy was an outstanding singer imo, and we'll never know how good / big she could have become.

Adele is also very very good.

i feel that way about amy winehouse, never got the whole she revolutionised music in the noughties nonsense, she just copied the 60's soul sound (like adele has also done, before anyone starts moaning)

The only song of Adele's that I really like is Skyfall.
Amy wins by a landslide for me.

I think to pit these two against each other you have to take whole albums into consideration

Adele is talented but she will never make an album as good as Back To Black. I'm sure of that.

This! Adele is young & I do think she's talented but Amy's music & lyricism wins hands down.
