Water And A Flame

By Daniel Merriweather

Hotly-tipped Australian singer-songwriter Daniel Merriweather teams up with Adele (the woman behind 2008's 'Chasing Pavements') on this plodding acoustic-guitar-and-tacked-on-strings piece of numb balladry. Merriweather has a decent enough singer-songwriter voice, but he's shot himself in the foot by teaming up with Adele.

When they trade vocals during the first half of the song, his voice sounds reedy and pedestrian next to Adele's sultry, soul-infused croon, and when they sing in unison in the second half, you'll struggle to hear Merriweather beneath Adele's rich drawl.

A steady, passable, James Blunt/James Morrison style ballad. Adele's guest vocals are the best thing about 'Water And A Flame.'
