Adam Lambert’s “Velvet Side A” is a Goldmine

October 21, 2019

Adam Lambert’s new EP, “Velvet Side A”, coming four long years after “The Original High”, was well worth the wait. Not that he has been idle or absent during that time, having ventured forth on several, globe-circling tours as the frontman for Queen as well as a personal Odyssey of spiritual and artistic growth. Having navigated between the Scylla and Charybdis of self-doubt and emotional exhaustion, our Odysseus has emerged into the light, reborn as an artist ready to reclaim his true voice.

When he captured the world’s attention on American idol, Adam towered above every other contestant through his singular talent for inhabiting iconic songs and making them his own. His extraordinary voice and interpretive abilities drew out fresh energies and feelings from songs, animating them with new life. And yet in his first three albums, he charted a different course, determined to blaze a path as a mainstream pop singer-songwriter. While fans enjoyed his efforts, the material was never quite up to the standard he had set on Idol. But he refused to take the easy path of recording covers and parted ways with Sony.

With “Velvet Side A”, Adam has accomplished a remarkable feat of alchemy, creating original songs that draw unapologetically on his musical idols like Prince, Michael Jackson, George Michael, and even the Beatles, and through peerless vocal artistry spins what could have been derivative brass into pure gold. It’s as though he unearthed a cache of unknown eighties-vintage songs and covered them.

The standouts for this listener are the first four tracks. I defy you to not spontaneously bust some dance moves to “Superpower,” “Stranger You Are,” and “Overglow.” Buoyant and sexy, they fit Adam as snugly as a tailored green satin suit. And then there is “Closer to You,” a beautifully crafted ballad that explores the darker shores of lost love, from tender heartbreak to gut-wrenching angst. His live rendition captured in black-and-white video is one of the best things we’ve seen him do. Even his hair is perfect—tousled just so in gorgeous abandon.

It’s as though Adam has stopped caring about anything but the music. He has cast off the chains that had shackled him and come full circle to what made him so luminous in the first place, but now on a higher plane.

PRESS AND BLOG PICKS

NME – Does Rock ‘N’ Roll Kill Braincells?! – Adam Lambert. “In Does Rock ‘N’ Roll Kill Braincells?!, we quiz a grizzled artist on their own career to see how much they can remember – and find out if the booze, loud music and/or tour sweeties has knocked the knowledge out of them. This week: pop star and Queen’s current frontman Adam Lambert.” Grizzled????! LOL. But a fun, off-beat Q&A nonetheless.

VOTE!

Billboard’s poll: Lizzo, Post Malone, SuperM & More: Who Should Perform at the 2020 Grammys? Vote! Although this is a meaningless vote because generally the Grammys features live performances by artists who have been nominated that year or are being recognized for some kind of lifetime achievement. Hmm, has Queen gotten a lifetime achievement…? Still, it would be fun to see who wins, so VOTE Glamberts!

THE REVIEWS

Yahoo – Adam Lambert talks new music, new boyfriend, new attitude, and 10 years of being here for your entertainment. As always, a superb interview by Lyndsey Parker. “Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody may have started the music-biopic craze, but a whole separate movie could be made about the life of Queen’s current frontman, Adam Lambert. From his early theater and club-kid days, to his unlikely ascent as an American Idol darling, to his present-day status as an LGBTQ icon and the lead singer of the biggest rock band (and biggest comeback band) on the planet, his story is one for the ages.”

The Advocate – Adam Lambert Unleashes Authentic Queer ‘Superpower’ With Velvet: Side A. “While “Feel Something” expresses yearning, “Superpower” is a declarative statement that Lambert has come out of his blue period more badass than ever. “I did some deep digging and just got down to the bottom of [Why do I care?]. I like performing. I like connecting with people. I like sharing that space, that time with people — whether it’s three minutes of a song or a two-hour concert,” Lambert says. “That is something that I cannot live without. I love it. I grew up loving it and I continue to love it.””

Billboard – Adam Lambert’s ‘Velvet: Side A’ Is the Star’s Best Work Yet.  “Velvet is the right title for a project like this — the sound is classic, the production is smooth, and the artist is basking in a rich, luxurious new sense of self-confidence. It may only be the first part of a greater project, but Velvet: Side A leaves nothing to be desired for the listener, and instead feels like a collection that could be Lambert’s most definitive work to date.”

Associated Press – Review: Adam Lambert smooth as ‘Velvet,’ rough as rock on EP. “Adam Lambert’s superpower is a seemingly 25-octave voice that can be smooth as velvet one moment, and sharp enough to cut diamonds the next. His new six-song EP, “Velvet: Side A,” shows Lambert at the top of his game, toggling effortlessly among dance club thump, guitar-driven rock, ’70s funk and power-ballad drama…One of the things that propelled Lambert through the “American Idol” ranks was a deep knowledge of and appreciation for vastly different genres of music — and the ability to kill at all of them. The first single, “Superpower,” is infused with a Prince spirit (think “Kiss”) with its falsetto vocals, and prominent bass lines.”

HuffPost – The Rise Of Adam Lambert. “Now on the cusp of releasing his new EP, Lambert hopes as many people as possible hear his music. Sure, he cares about the number of streams, album sales and chart success. But it’s about a lot more than that. “My definition of what success is: Do I feel like I’m being myself? Do I feel like this is making me happy and proud? Do I feel like I’m connecting?”
