As well as a huge range of emotions expressed on excellent tracks on hsi sophomore album, ‘Trespassing’, you gotta love the amazing hot sex aspect of the music. The album is so worth buying, and here is a link to do just that after you have had a taste.
THIS IS MY CAPSULE REVIEW – JUST LISTEN TO THE ALBUM AND THEN YOU WILL WANT TO BUY IT TO OWN AS IT IS JUST SHEER FUNK SOUL MOTHER FUCKING BRILLIANT.
WOW. That was my first thought on finishing ‘Trespassing’. He has dance hits, he has radio ready hits, he has love songs and he plummets to the depth of his soul for the ‘real shit’. I did not expect the album to be this good. Adam’s first album was rushed and just seemed like a collection of songs with no theme. Lambert has surpassed himself here, making the most complete album of ideas and emotions for years.
Right from the first song Adam is laying it all on the line, dancing up a storm in your pants with the very cool title track ‘Trespassing’…..
Great dance track. Needs to be a single. But next he leaps into the sexy and playful ‘Cuckoo’, which needs also to be a single…….
‘Kickin’ In’ is the sexiest song about drugs Prince never wrote……
‘Pop that Lock’ is sex on legs……
‘Naked Love’ is an assured radio hit…..
OK, this has changed from being anywhere near a review and turned into ‘Listen to this song, it is really good’. But I have not felt like this about an album for decades.
Adam sometimes does the whole ‘fake diva scream like a banshee Xtina/Mariah/Whitney Diva school’ crime. Well, he does have the best voice in music in the 21st century. He very much controls the ‘shrieking ell’ stuff here, flying when the songs demands and needs it, but also showing a lower register I think few were aware he posessed. The vocals and control are above reproach.
As a whole, the album makes you anticipate the next song and then the next, as it just seems to get better and better. Well, doesn’t ‘seem’ too, it does.
The latter half is quite different in tone from the first half. Searing honesty and a voice that seems to be coming from his boots, with song after song, – ‘Underneath, Chokehold, Broken English, Runnin’, Nirvana’ – all have an emotional intensity and honesty that brings one to tears. Well, I cried during ‘Underneath’. I feel that song can be taken many ways, all that lay emotions bare. This is stellar quality.
This is an album that actually encourage people to buy albums again.
There has been much talk about ‘gay music’ recently and why ‘gay artists’ never make it big. Well, most of them make crap, insular music that does not travel out of their bedroom. Adam Lambert is making music for humans. We have all love, hurt and have been hurt. This comes through his songs in such a human way I found my breath taken away.
JUST BUY IT NOW. YOU SHALL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED. DOUBLE PINKY SWEAR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
UPDATE – I CANNOT STOP LISTENING. ‘BROKEN ENGLISH’ ALWAYS GIVES ME A LITTLE SCARED.
UPDATE – IT FEELS LIKE A GREAT EPISODE OF EXCELLENT EPISODIC TV. YOU FEEL SO HIGH AND LIKE YOU HAVE BEEN ON A JOURNEY. THAT IS RARE.
After topping the Billboard 200 last week with her latest album MDNA,Madonna is on course to suffer the biggest second-week sales drop in history. According to Forbes, MDNA is set to shift “roughly” 46,000 copies second week, giving it somewhere around a record-breaking 88% drop in sales.
MDNA debut atop the Billboard 200 last week with 359k, but Madge cheated her way to No. 1 by offering the album for free as part of a concert ticket bundle for her upcoming tour. Billboard report that about 185k of MDNA’s first-week sales total came from the ticket deal, making MDNA’s real album sales about 179k, which would’ve seen Lionel Ritchie debut at No. 1 with his new album Tuskegee, which sold 199k.
This whole cheat-first-week-then-suffer-a-sales-drop thing is so ironically Lady GaGa, isn’t it?
