TRESPASSING REVIEWS

@adamlambert: Catching some of my album reviews and I have to just say I’m soooo happy folks are loving #Trespassing @RollingStone @lyndseyparker I love u

“That’s what’s up!” on @WhoSay via @adamlambert http://www.whosay.com/adamlambert/photos/169273

New York Daily News – Album Review: Adam Lambert “Trespassing” “As serviceably catchy as most of the songs may be, it’s only Lambert’s performance that raises them above radio fodder. His vocal attack remains a dizzying mix of the awesome and the absurd…The latter cut [Underneath] means to reveal Lambert’s inner life, his secret vulnerability. While in reality he must have some, his deepest value as a singer, and a star, is his riveting certitude. That’s both politically potent (given his role as an out gay man), and artistically riveting: It’s the sound of liberation achieved.”

Yahoo – Adam Lambert’s ‘ ’: It’s That Deep “Trespassing is a full realization of the new Lambert signature sound: a rare strain of electropop that manages to be both mindlessly hedonistic and sublimely sophisticated at the same time…”

Rolling Stone review of album – 4 stars!! Rob Sheffield writes “Trespassing delivers, with a mix of tinsel disco-club sleaze and leather-boy love ballads. While he excels in a radio cheddar bom like “Naked Love,” he gets deeper in slow jams like “Underneath” and “Outlaws of Love.” But all over Trespassing, Glambert sings everything like Zeus in a thong.” Key tracks: “Shady”, “Outlaws of Love”

Auditory Slam – Adam Lambert – Trespassing Review “Running: wow! just wow! My favorite track by far, thus far. Superb vocal delivery here over a track that just swirls around you like a tornado…While there are a few songs here that I think could/should have been left off, this CD really has a great number of songs that impress even me, one of his biggest critics. This has monster hit written all over it…Kudos Mr. Lambert, Kudos. You’ve made me believe.”

EQ – Album Review: “Trespassing” by Adam Lambert “I really can’t say enough good things about this album; it’s extremely strong, cohesive and deep, which you really don’t find in pop. I’ll be the first one to tell you that I’m an extremely harsh critic of most mainstream pop music. I have very high standards when it comes to pop, because so many pop artists skate by with minimal talent and maximal production and vocal enhancements. What I love so much about Adam is that he’s an artist who is not only overflowing with talent and showmanship, but also has within himself the talent and creativity to create an original, unique and meaningful piece of work that shines brighter than all the rest. Trespassing is undoubtedly the pop album of the year and has raised the standard for everybody else out there.”

My Portis Wasp Says – Adam Lambert – ‘Trespassing’ |Album Review “Adam Lambert returns this year (next week to be semi-specific) with his sophomore record Trespassing, and trespass he does wasps in the most joyfully cocky of ways over the 15 tracks that make up what might just be the best album you’ll hear all year! A bold statement for sure, but Adam is the only boy I can think of right now in pop who is given equal access to the sickest of producers and songwriters working today as dominating ladies in pop like Katy Perry, Britney Spears, Ke$ha and Kelly Clarkson, but apart from the latter none of these poptarts however hard they try quite manage to rise above their expensive productions like this boy does.”

Spin or Bin Music Exclusive: Hear Adam Lambert’s New Album ‘Trespassing′ Before The Official Release Here! “So many amazing songs on this album including Kickin’ in, Runnin’, Naked Love, Broken English, Chokehold, and Underneath. I am totally in love with disco workout track Cuckoo and can’t stop playing it.”

Pop Heaven – JUDGEMENT DAY: POP HEAVEN OR HELL? ADAM LAMBERT’S “TRESPASSING” Track by track review: “In the next track, “Underneath,” Adam has written what could end up being the most breathtaking song of his career. Dark, emotional and atmospheric; it is a lyrical and sonic masterpiece in every way. (“Strip away the flesh and bone, look beyond the lies you’ve known, everybody wants to talk about a freak, no one wants to dig that deep, let me take you underneath…”) Imagine that Richard Marx wrote a confessional song about his dark side in the vein of Madonna’s “Ray of Light” album – then imagine it modern. One of the most haunting and beautiful songs, ever. Period.”

Idolator – Adam Lambert’s ‘Trespassing’: Check Out New Tracks & Adam’s Twitter Q&A! “We’ve pretty much been listening to Adam Lambert‘s Trespassing all day long, as the pop star’s sophomore album is currently streaming on Adam’s official site. To mark the occasion of his music finally reaching his fans’ ears, Lambert did a Q&A on Twitter this afternoon, answering his followers’ many queries — including what he thinks of Justin Bieber‘s Believe album cover art, which shares a similar design to his own album cover. Head below for Adam’s comments, as well as a few standout tracks from Trespassing that we just can’t get out of our head.”

Music that Goes Pop – Adam Lambert – Trespassing Album Leak + Review! “Adam Lambert’s Trespassing is a winner.  With a variety of songs as huge as his vocal range, yet feeling at the same time completely cohesive, Lambert’s sophomore album is on trend and yet doesn’t have an expiration date.”

Music Box Mix – Adam Lambert “Trespassing” album review “Fans have already heard snippets of all 15 songs on the Trespassing Deluxe Edition, however, the full tracks are even better, providing more funky electronic sounds and beautiful harmonies.”

ONTD – Check out Adam Lambert’s Full Album “Trespassing” – Now Streaming – Comments galore.

Popdust – Read the Reviews for All Twelve Tracks – Some excerpts:

  • Trespassing – “It’s the kind of glammed-out, us vs. them disco stomper that we’re always wanting to hear from Adam, and it’s a hell of a way to get the album going.”
  • Cuckoo – “… less wacky than workmanlike. You could isolate any five seconds, paste them over any given pop hit, and not get much difference.”
  • Shady – “It’s not quite as sleazy as we’d like Adam to one day get—baby steps, people—but it’s definitely a step in the right direction.”
  • Broken English – “The song’s high point comes before the final chorus, where a key change takes the song into alien territory, and Adam wails over it in a way that can only be described—by music critics anyway—as “haunting.””
  • Underneath – “Listening to “Underneath,” you wonder why “Better Than I Know Myself” wasn’t quietly tucked back into a drawer as a first draft. Everything the single was meant to accomplish actually gets accomplished here, fantastically.”
  • Outlaws of Love – “The restraint’s welcome, particularly in contrast to some of the Top 40-bait found elsewhere. It makes everything here resonate far more than it otherwise might have, and it closes Trespassing with dignity and quiet reserve.”
  • Kickin In – “Between this and the album’s title track, if Trespassing doesn’t help start a second-wave Neptunes renaissance (assuming Chad Hugo is still hanging around somewhere), it’ll be a low down dirty shame.”

Gather – Album Review: Adam Lambert – ‘Trespassing’ “It’s been a long time coming for Adam Lambert’s Trespassing album release, but definitely worth the wait! Although originally slated to drop last November, Adam took an extra few months to go in a different, funkier direction and to fine-tune it to perfection. The result shows that he has succeeded in his quest. The album comes chock full of obvious hits, including funky, up-beat dance tunes that rival any pop songs currently topping the charts. There are also ballads that will have listeners near tears, with haunting lyrics and gut-wrenching, soulful cries. All of the songs are relatable, regardless of age, race, gender or sexuality.”

NewNowNext – Listen: Adam Lambert’s Beautiful Gay Rights Anthem “As the song builds, the singing stays rich and subtle while instruments drop in one by one. A guitar arrives, then some drums. A piano joins the fray, and eventually, Lambert himself gets loud. The overall effect makes me think of someone who’s trying to keep it together, who’s trying to handle himself in a hard situation. But he just keeps feeling and feeling and eventually… boom. His emotions explode…“Outlaws of Love” isn’t asking us to party. It’s defiant, yes, but it’s also wounded. And that’s a real part of being oppressed.In other words, this song is a vital new entry in pop music’s ongoing conversation about letting people be themselves.”

Advocate – EXCLUSIVE: Listen to Adam Lambert’s Song About LGBT Equality “”I wrote ‘Outlaws of Love’ to lament the LGBT community’s struggle for equal rights and acceptance,” the singer tells The Advocate. “It saddens me to think that we find ourselves essentially ‘outlawed’ in certain communities because of our basic human desire for companionship. There is a light at the end of the tunnel, however. I am thrilled that President Obama had the guts to speak out — even in an election year — for the traditional American values of justice and equality for all. It’s a bold step in the right direction.””

EW STEPS IN IT

EW – Trespassing (2012) Does this reviewer have a chip on her shoulder? More than 500 fans have spoken out so far, and Nile Rodgers weighed in too (see below). “Even after he came out in 2009, the eighth-season runner-up didn’t stop flirting with the straight crowd, indulging in classic-rock guitars and gender-neutral pronouns on his debut, For Your Entertainment.”

@JulianM6 @EW Melissa Maerz, FAIL- for only referring to @adamlambert‘s sexuality condescendingly in an article that’s supposed to be about his music

@adamlambert @JulianM6 eeeeew yeah she comes across as pretty ig’nant, huh? Haha

Art and Medicine – My husband’s letter to EW This response by @artistsupporter’s husband nails it! “..Beginning with comments regarding Mr. Lambert’s appearance “the only American Idol alum who considers purple eyeliner a daytime look”, she continued by implying that the eyeliner suggested his sexual orientation and because of it, it was high time he made his “big gay dance club album”.  To imply that Mr. Lambert should stick to the stereotype of creating dance club music because he is gay implies that gay artists should be pigeon-holed into the stereotypes society imposes upon them. …”

Jordan Meehan – An Open Letter to Melissa Maerz of Entertainment Weekly And this! ““A little makeup remover” cannot fix decades of inequality and discrimination, unequal legal status and intolerance, which are what Adam addresses in these songs, and it certainly cannot fix the unprofessionalism shown by Ms. Maerz in her review.”

Time – Adam Lambert on His New Album, All Those Singing Competitions and Filling in for Freddie Mercury “Q. You’re fronting for Queen this summer. Have you picked an outfit yet? A. Oh, I definitely want to wear something fierce. If Freddie [Mercury]’s smiling down from somewhere, I hope he approves of my shoes.”

Rolling Stone – Adam Lambert’s Emotional Rescue (fan transcription). From the upcoming May 24 issue. “Adam Lambert’s Hollywood home sits atop a long driveway so steep that you could mistake it for a concrete wall. When Lambert began renting the midcentury modern with stunning city views, he thought the driveway was a pain. “To get up, you’ve got to overshoot it, turn around, come back and then turn in really fast at, like, a 9-degree angle, or else you scrape the whole bottom of your car,” he says. But after photographers caught wind of the American Idol star’s address, Lambert came to appreciate the driveway: “They’re not coming up that thing!”…”

Billboard – Adam Lambert Takes Control with ‘Trespassing’ SUPERB article detailing Adam’s role as Executive Producer and how unusual it is. “… it’s not the impressive roster of collaborators that makes the boldest statement in the credits. It’s the forthcoming set’s executive producer: Lambert himself. ”

Pride Source – Adam Lambert Q&A: On His Surprise Sex Toy, ‘Redundant’ Media & ‘Horrifying’ Jail Time “In this candid interview with Lambert, the pop star opened up about the “redundant” press questions regarding his sexuality, becoming more confident as an out celebrity, and breaking the rules – and going to jail for it.”

Gather – Adam Lambert’s Fans “Get” Him – “Adam Lambert recently did an interview with Rolling Stone magazine and he may have offended some fans inadvertently. Fortunately, he cleared up any miscommunication yesterday on Twitter and thanked those who “get it.” Adam took to his official Twitter last night to comment on the interview and clarify a remark that could be interpreted unfavorably.”

Adam featured in Japan’s InRock June 2012 issue. Anyone want me to translate? See our translation of the web blurb below:

In Rock, June 2012

From InRock Magazine – Latest interview

“I bring home all of the gifts I received in Japan. Because they are all so creative and beautiful”

Adam Lambert’s second album “Trespassing” is finally finished. This new work which begins with the extremely danceable title track, is a balanced mix of funk and electro-infused dance songs and emotional, dramatic ballads. Based on Adam’s real experiences over the past two years, this album lets listeners “enter” into his real world. This supremely joyful and at the same time deep, beautiful pop album will be Adam’s signature work, no mistake.

InRock – I was allowed to interview you in January, and for taking the time again, I thank you very much. What have you been doing since then?

A. To bring this album to its perfect completion, I’ve been working like crazy. I got this album to where I can be very satisfied. That’s because I’m quite a perfectionist. I took a lot of time to find good songs, and to get them into the right order, make sure the sound was perfect, it took a lot of time.

InRock – Three months ago we heard six songs, but have there been new songs added since then?

A. To be honest, I don’t remember which songs I added since then, but I think there are 16 total [on the Japanese edition]. I expect that in Japan people might really like “Pop that Lock.”

PressParty – Adam Lambert clarifies radio station visit quote “New Rolling Stone interview prob my most personal yet. What a great chat I had w Jonah! Hope it gives you some insight to my reality. However, to clarify my quote bout the radio station visits. ‘f’d up retail’ part ain’t meeting fans, it’s selling myself to the stations. The best part of those visits is the actual PERFORMING. that’s when I get to connect w you guys in my favorite way- thru music.””

Nile Rodgers – Trust the Process REDUX  “Yesterday my tech team Casey, D, and me were working all night and I didn’t post all of the different languages until late last night. I want the Adam fans around the world to see the Process, so I’m keeping this post up another day. But, I’m adding NEW CLIPS for the folks who’ve already seen it. It will give you more insight into “THE PROCESS.””

On Top – Adam Lambert, Jane Lynch, Neil Patrick Harris Cheer Obama’s Gay Marriage Support  ““Yes!” Lambert messaged on Twitter. “Of course I am completely in support of gay marriage. I also have an amazing boyfriend. This doesn’t mean I’m getting married. Lol!”…The Voice judge Adam Levine messaged: “thank you @BarackObama for reminding us all that true leadership is not dead.”…Lady Gaga, Alec Baldwin, Tyra Banks, Josh Groban, Samantha RonsonRicky Martin, Chris Colfer, Cyndi Lauper and Ellen DeGerenes have also cheered on the president.”

NileRodgers.com – Trust the Process (VIDEO) “It started with a tweet to me from Adam and Sam Sparro asking me to play on this funky track. After chatting a bit we realized that there was only one way this could happen. Without ever meeting each other, Adam and I booked a studio – and as John Taylor from Duran Duran would say, we decided to Trust the Process.”

New York Daily News – Gatecrasher “ADAM LAMBERT says success does not come with a sense of belonging. In the new issue of Rolling Stone magazine, the “American Idol” veteran, who released a new album this week, claims: “I still feel like I’m not welcome” in the music biz. Lambert explains that a trip to the Grammy Awards in February left him feeling “really weird, like an outsider.” The openly gay Lambert also reveals straight sex is not a foreign concept to him. “I’m just a person that likes to try everything,” he says, “so I’ve tried everything.”

Dudes Act Like A Lady: ‘Call Me Maybe’ Takes Over YouTube (VIDEOS) Just swooning over this wonderful essay by Ann Powers. “The ending of the “Call Me Maybe” video also takes a Sobule-like step toward the proudly queer: after watching Jepsen perform, Hunk ambles up to the male guitarist and gives him the longed-for digits. Jepsen looks bummed, but not shocked. LGBTQ people are clearly a part of her world…It’s this twist that’s taken the “Call Me Maybe” story to a whole new level as it’s gone viral.”

The Village Voice – 100 & Single: Buy An Adam Lambert Album, Strike A Tiny Blow For Gay Rights “About a year ago, the movie Bridesmaids opened in the U.S. and was the subject of a rather unusual awareness campaign…One year later, I’d like to invite you to get behind another consumerist message that, in 2012, should be equally uncontroversial: Being openly gay shouldn’t prevent you from having a No. 1 album in the United States. The album we can support to send this message is Adam Lambert’s second major-label disc Trespassing, which arrives in stores on May 15—virtually one year to the day after the successful Bridesmaids opening…Even at this tipping-point moment for acceptance of gay civil rights, there’s still another tiny cultural barrier left to cross. If anyone wants to start a Bridesmaids-style grassroots movement in the next couple of weeks, it might be fun to see if a gang of progressive-minded pop fans and chart geeks could help lift Lambert into the penthouse.”

AOL Music – Adam Lambert, AOL Music Essay Contest: How Has Adam Changed Your Life? “Were you inspired by Adam’s confidence to lead a braver life yourself? Has one of Adam’s songs helped you through a difficult period? We want to hear about it! Email your essay to aolmusicblog@teamaol.com (there is no word count) detailing “Glambert”s positive influence on your existence by Sunday, May 13.”

New singer joins Glamily

@KeishaRenee: On my way to rehearsal. Everyone say hello to the newest member of the Glamily and my BFF @RainOnMe83

@RainOnMe83: Thank u all for the love! I’m very excited to be apart of the Glamily! 🙂

A couple of days ago, we learned that there was a new replacement for backup singer Octavia. This message from Octavia may be a clue as to why. We wish her well.

“Sincerli Octavia: Okay…..time for a change in lifestyle….this weight is KILLING me for real! I missed out on a great opportunity because I was physically unable to what was asked of me and it wasn’t much. Getting rid of trash today, weight-loss mission begins 2moro! I won’t be doing updates like some, this is for me.

I guess I had to have a dream put in my hands and then snatched away in order for me to wake up.

I’m awake!!!”

 @MichaelOrland So thankful & full of love that @JLedetAI11 thanked me on live tv. Only other person to do it was @adamlambert . Gotta teach him “Orland”
@MichaelOrland@MalsDoxy @JLedetAI11 @adamlambert that to me is the sign of a truly gracious un-selfish performer to acknowledge the whole “team” it takes.
@MichaelOrland@IDreamIn4D I’m so moved by that – i can’t tell you. AND it’s his 2nd album – and he STILL thanked us!!! That boy is a winner.
@MichaelOrland@JadziasMind Thanks so much – love my job – and love to be a tiny speckle of help in people like Adam’s career!!! #SoProud
 @carrbert@MichaelOrland He has always said what an inspiration you were to him! 🙂
@MichaelOrland@carrbert that’s not the only reason i love him so much!!!!! Was always 1 of those talents that takes what u give him & hits a grand slam.

Nile speaks out

@nilerodgersMusic Review: Trespassing, by Adam Lambert | http://EW.com

@nilerodgersMany people say HORRIBLE things about me that I post. BTW-I think it’s good for you to speak your feelings about this journalist’s views

@nilerodgersI always thank people for kind words, because I believe that words can hurt and heal.

@nilerodgersWhen I read reviews where people feel the need to talk about things that go beyond the artistic, I always wonder about motivation.

@nilerodgersAdam is one of the most talented cool people I’ve ever worked with. When we left the studio the way he treated a fan on the street..

@nilerodgers …spoke volumes!!!
