Tom Odell Hits Number 1 on the UK Charts…

Despite (or because of) a harsh yet entertaining rant of a review by Mark Beaumont on NME, Tom Odell‘s Long Way Down is the number 1 album, displacing Kanye West’s Yeezus on the UK charts.

Beaumont referred to Odell’s hit song “Another Love” as a “certain brooding promise… before someone water boarded it with cod-pagan pomp until it was a trembling, desperate mess prepared to do anything its overlords told it to.”

Ranking the album a 0 out of 10, Beaumont predicted that Odell “will be all over 2013 like a virulent dose of musical syphilis.”

22-year-old Odell, also previously won the BRITs’ Critics’s Choice Award a couple months ago, following the footsteps of Adele, Florence and the Machine, Ellie Goulding, Jessie J, and Emeli Sande.
