The first single from American superstar, Adam Lambert's new album, "Never Close Our Eyes", is an upbeat dancefloor smash written by Bruno Mars that will get even the most reluctant on the dance floor. With its high energy chorus, and Lambert’s impressive vocals, it’s sure to be a summer smash. As well as executively producing Trespassing, Adam has collaborated with an all-star list of award winning artists, producers and songwriters on the record; including Pharrell Williams, Dr. Luke, Claude Kelly (who produced the single), Benny Blanco, Bonnie McKee, Nile Rogers, Sam Sparro, Bruno Mars, Nikka Costa and BC Jean.
“This album’s of a pretty high standard to say the least”--Popjustice
“What we heard was nothing short of brilliant”--Digital Spy
In the US, Adam Lambert is enough of a star to wind up the extreme Christian right. After finishing second on American Idol in 2009, he laid his cards on the table by kissing a male guitarist during a TV performance. He then sold a million or so copies of his surprisingly decent debut album, For Your Entertainment.
Over here, that album stalled at number 36, and Lambert is best known for alleged crimes against classic rock. Soon he'll attempt to fill Freddie Mercury's singlet in a series of gigs with the remaining members of Queen. Maybe Ritchie from Five was busy?
But it would be a shame if those Queen shows proved too distracting, because Lambert's own music deserves a shot. The first half of Trespassing offers a smorgasbord of succulent up-tempo pop. There are a couple of derivative cuts, but the highlights are tasty enough to compensate.
Naked Love sounds like a mash-up of P!nk and early Madonna, and Kickin' In is the sort of irresistible Michael Jackson tribute that Justin Timberlake used to dish up. Shady's disco-funk redux features smokin' hot guitar licks from Chic's Nile Rodgers. Best of all is Cuckoo, which has a vocal hook that's camper than Liberace's dry-cleaning pile.
The album's second half is less entertaining, alternating between bombastic arena-rock stompers and unimaginative ballads. Outlaws of Love is a well-intentioned but not terribly interesting gay rights anthem, while Underneath somehow manages to sound both overwrought and boring.
Only Broken English competes with the pop thrills of the first half. Beginning with a reference to the Tower of Babel, it just gets more ridiculous, climaxing with a breakdown that sounds like opera meets dubstep.
However, even when his material sags, Lambert is a compelling presence: a likeable pop peacock with a vocal range Justin Hawkins might envy. His lyrics rely too heavily on meaningless slogans ("I'm takin' you to school!"), but he never lacks a sense of humour.
"Gotta get out of this straitjacket," Lambert winks on Cuckoo, the album's standout track. Freddie would surely have smiled at that one.

That concert will live in my memory for ever. It was incredible. There is no doubt Mr Lambert is a charismatic performer, with an incredible vocal ability and range, plus, he looks very hot in Leather pants.
Something of the raw power Adam is capable of gets lost in the transition from live to recording, and some of the material is not completely worthy of him, but this CD repays repeated listening; And nowhere is Adam's performance anything other than faultless.
It's great to know that within a sea of autotuned monstrosities real talent is capable of shining through.
Might also mention, there are literally hundreds of youTube performances by Lambert - and his concerts live are far superior to the vast majority of other singers today.
Check out his six performances with Queen - Kiev, Poland, Moscow and the three London ones. Both May and Taylor have praised his abilities and indicate they, too, believe he is an incomparable performer.
Pop That Lock
"Trespassing" (Deluxe Edition) is a worthwhile purchase for those who enjoyed any of Adam Lambert's previous musical efforts and/or music lovers who are open to blended music genres in one song (such as electronica and pop, dance and pop, chillout and pop etc.).
'Trespassing', his second album is more diverse than his debut (which made me a fan), but is still full of personality and uniqueness. It was, and still is, pretty rare for me to take an interest in the music of an artist who found their fame on a reality television show, but Adam is different, he has own identity, and is always the master entertainer, as well as a top rate, Michael Jackson-isque vocalist.
The hit single 'Never Close Our Eyes' is a great song, but the real standouts for me are the opening 'Trespassing' (which, as you'll realise as soon as you hear it, is very similar to Queen's 'Another One Bites the Dust'), 'Cuckoo', which is guaranteed to get any party started, and the ballad 'Better Than I Know Myself', in which Adam excels in delivering sinecure emotion.
Regardless of your differing musical preferences, you have to respect Adam Lambert, because he isn't just another throwaway pop singer, and besides - 'Trespassing' rocks! It's pretty hard to find good pop music these days, but then there's Adam!
