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.
REALLY LIKE IT. WHAT I HAVE SAID FOR AGES, HE NEEDS TO DO A GOOD DANCE SONG. I LIKE THIS HEAPS, AND IT IS JUST THE ACOUSTIC VERSION. THE QUALITY GOES UP AND DOWN AS IT IS A STITCH TOGETHER FROM MANY SOURCES. LAMBERT FOR SOME REASON WANTED TO NOT HAVE THE SONG OUT YET. HA, GOOD LUCK AGAINST THE NINJAS DUDE.
IT STILL ALL SOUNDS LIKE A TYPICAL NIGHT OUT IN NEW ZEALAND. FINNISH TABLOIDS, CAN A FINNY TYPE TELL US ABOUT THE ONES WHO POSTED THOSE STORIES. ARE THEY TRASH? SO LATEST FROM FINLAND TRASH.
We have learned it’s not as bad as it sounds. Adam & Sauli got in a fight in front of a well-known gay bar Don’t Tell Mama in Helsinki, Finland after a little quarrel & are now in a drunk tank at a police station & will be released soon. Apparently, the press exaggerated the fisticuffs! The police are now saying this was a minor fine-able offense for being drunk & disorderly, if that. After the hearing and preliminary investigation they will be free to go. They’ll be out in no time, as it seems none of the people involved (including an unnamed 3rd person) plan to press charges. The police said the situation was over when they got to the bar, so it was really just a drunk & disorderly bust, which is apparently no big deal in Finland… They’ll both be questioned in Pasila and then released.

The Cause. And, of course, Lambert is also a role model for gay youth, making an “It Gets Better” video and appearing on the cover of The Advocate last month. Most touching of all? His new song “Outlaws of Love” is about gay marriage, a haunting and beautiful ballad he wrote in response to the hate he was seeing around him and in the news. “Love is such a beautiful thing,” he says. “When you’re lucky enough to find love it’s one of the greatest feelings in the world. And the particular challenge for gay people, and particularly gay men, from my perspective, is [that] monogamy and true love works. Because we are brought up in a society that tells us it’s wrong.”
SERIOUSLY??? NEVER GOT THAT. BOOOOOO. FRAK GAY MARRIAGE. GIVE GAY PEOPLE EQUAL RIGHTS. THEY SHOULD NOT BE ATTACHED TO GAY MARRIAGE.
MUST MAINSTREAM STRAIGHT MEDIA REALLY LIE AND MAKE BELIEVE ALL GAY PEOPLE SUPPORT OR HAVE ANY INTEREST IN FIGHTING OR NEEDING GAY MARRIAGE.
BULLSHIT IT IS, LOOK AT THE LYRICS………...
Oh, nowhere left to go.
Are we getting closer, closer?
No, all we know is “no!”
Nights are getting colder, colder.
Tears all fall the same.
We all feel the rain.
We can’t change.
Everywhere we go
We’re lookin’ for the sun.
Nowhere to grow old.
We’re always on the run.
They say we’ll rot in Hell
But I don’t think we will.
They’ve branded us enough
Outlaws of love.
