BBC Review

In black and white terms, there are two types of X Factor/American Idol artist: those who hit and those who miss. Adam Lambert, runner-up on the 2009 series of Idol, has the temerity to dance in the greyscale between these extremes. At the time of writing he's largely unproven in the UK, but seems doggedly determined to circumnavigate the compositional clichés of most Simon Cowell-affiliated acts. Ergo: if it's lung-busting ballads and high-tempo RnB you're after, listen elsewhere.

For Your Entertainment–a number three record in the US, and expanded with five additional tracks for its UK release–finds the patently gifted vocalist collaborating with an assembled cast guaranteed to make every other reality show starlet green with envy. Rob Cavallo acts as producer on several songs–that's Rob Cavallo of Paramore, Green Day and Avril Lavinge fame (and, ahem, Paris Hilton)–and writers include Matt Bellamy of Muse, Pink, Linda Perry, Ryan Tedder of OneRepublic, Rivers Cuomo of Weezer, Justin Hawkins (The Darkness, remember?) and Lady Gaga. Yep, The Most Notorious Pop Sensation Since Madonna contributes Fever, all sass and fizz and pop and sizzle, like Mika taken hostage by the Scissor Sisters and given a dressing up.

The Tedder-penned tracks are obvious from their first processed drum beats, but there's a solidity to Sleepwalker that's comparable to Keane's commendable consistency, while Lambert co-write Aftermath is a gently rousing rocker that Tom Chaplin would be proud to call his own. Similarly eager to tightrope-walk across the blurry rock and pop divide is boisterous bonus number Time For Miracles–think a post-op Leona Lewis possessed by the spirit of Bon Scott–and Music Again, which features the unmistakeable glam-stomp touch of Hawkins. It hovers around Queen's histrionics, but the Bellamy-written Soaked drives straight into the heart of a Freddie Mercury show-stopper, with Eastern vibes and dramatic strings that wouldn't sound out of place on Muse's latest opus of interstellar indulgence. Broken Open is a glitch-riddled closer proper that comes across like an effective Idol adaptation of Thom Yorke traits.

For Your Entertainment has its moments of misery–Sure Fire Winners is an uncomfortable slice of misjudged braggadocio, and Master Plan sounds like the soundtrack to a cola brand ad–but for the most part this is a trove of surprises. And that nothing sounds like an obvious hit single only adds to its appeal. --Mike Diver

I'll begin with the standard "I don't usually buy albums from Reality TV Show contestants but..." BUT..this guy can really, really sing. I really enjoyed watching his performances on American Idol, and was as surprised as everyone else when he didn't win. Then, to be honest, I forgot about him for a while. UNTIL I stumbled across this CD here, and thought "what the heck, it can't be that bad, after all, he has a good voice." I am SO glad I took the chance, because what arrived in the CD case was a wonderful surprise - A stompingly big, glam, glittery disco ball in music form. Some of the writing collaborations on this album include Lady GaGa, Matt Bellamy (of Muse) Ryan Tedder (of One Republic fame), Linda Perry, Justin Hawkins (of The Darkness). Here's my track-by-track:
1. Music Again: You can really hear the Justin Hawkins influence on this one, with little tasters of old Def Leppard on the "You Can Give It To Me" shout. A gorgeous little showcase for Adam's raspy, gravelly, sexy,.....*coughs* moving on...
2. For Your Entertainment: Sweet mother of divine disco, I defy anyone to listen to this and not be at least a teeny bit turned on. It's a downright pulsating, dirty, (but NOT profane, which is one of the best things about this album - he doesn't throw in a few swear words just to try and impress)and overall one of those songs that you just feel your shoulders beginning to move to, and if I denied dancing round the kitchen to this one while performing a few head flips and stomps, well....I'd be lying. Catchiest song I've heard in a loooong time.
3. Whatya Want From Me: Gorgeous, soft rock ballad with really heartfelt lyrics, a gorgeous chorus, and a really nice beat. Adam's voice is really nice on this one, very strong on the chorus.

I bought the US version of For Your Entertainment last November and it is a superb listen, combining 70s glam rock, 80s electro-pop and a modern edge, all delivered by one of the best vocals around today. The UK release has additional tracks making it a must - Down the Rabbit Hole is one of the catchiest, craziest songs I've ever heard. Also check out Adam's superb unplugged versions of some of these tracks.

"I was born with glitter on my face/My baby clothes were made of leather and lace"

Just buy this CD...play it loud, and blast yourself off to Planet Adam. It's absolutely fantastic.

It's impossible to listen to this without dancing, singing, strutting, smiling - just wow! Of the 14 tracks, every one of them could be a hit single. But thanks to Adam's influence and amazing vocal range, they're all still esoteric enough that they aren't overly commercial, and there's something for everyone - a song for every mood. The previews don't do it justice.

The CD kicks off with the playful adrenaline rush of Justin Hawkins' 'Music Again', then there's the addictive electro/dance glam rock shuffle of 'For Your Entertainment', the perfect pop rock angst of Pink's 'Whataya Want From Me', and the fantastically over-the-top dance/rock empowerment vibe of 'Strut', after which Adam's darkly dramatic vocals soar into another world on Muse's stunning 'Soaked'. 'Sure Fire Winners' picks up the pace again with a harder glam rock edginess and some trademark wails, followed by the gorgeously minimal falsetto contradiction of 'A Loaded Smile'. This CD just goes on forever, and every track seems better than the last. 'If I Had You' has an impossibly catchy techno disco beat, 'Pick U Up' is a completely addictive pop/rock track with electrifying vocals, and that's followed by Lady Gaga's brilliant retro dance track 'Fever'. Adam's glammily over-the-top cat-dragged-in vocals on 'Fever' are out of this world, and completely different to anything else on here.

This may be my third copy of Adam's debut album but the added features is a must have. Within the Glambox set you get a remixed Ep of Adam's current single in the USA (If I Had You), The album, mouse pad with an awesome picture of Adam on it and then you get a DVD. The DVD is what makes this re-release all the better as you get a behind the scenes to the Making of the 'If U Had You' music video, also you get the three music videos for the three singles that were released. There are also a series of live performances from his AOL session and I heart radio. Showcasing what an amazing vocalist he really is. My only disappointment is to why bbc Radio 1 & 2 refuse to play his music when there is something for everyone on this amazing album.

I've followed Adam since day one on American Idol, and this album is everything I expected it to be - absolutely fantastic! I have the US version, but as the previous reviewer said, Voodoo is worth the money on its own, so I will also be buying this (even though I have already downloaded Voodoo!!) Adam is the most exciting vocalist since Freddie Mercury and George Michael for me, and I think he's going to have an incredible career. Every song on this album is excellent - recommended a million times over!!!
