Montreal Gazette – Adam Lambert says things would’ve been much tougher without American Idol “I will have a full profile of the American Idol runner-up in the Gazette Tuesday. In the meantime, here’s a little advance taste – with Lambert responding to the folks who believe American Idol is the root of all evil in modern music. “Of course, there’s a stigma,” said Lambert, who was open, generous and way more intelligent than your average pop star over the course of our 20-minute interview. “But you also know what’s wrong with the music world? Do you know how hard it is to get signed as a new artist? It’s f—ing impossible. So I feel Idol is this amazing P.R. platform and I did what I had to do to get noticed. I chose American Idol because it surpasses the business. It goes right to the audience. But the challenge is also making the leap from the show to the business. It’s a whole new obstacle course that you have to deal with at that point. You introduce yourself without original music. So you have to work backwards.”” Looking forward to the full profile to come out next Tuesday!!

Adam Lambert – “Shady” feat. Sam Sparro and Nile Rodgers
|This month, Adam Lambert became the first openly gay musician to have a number one record on the Billboard 200, and while this is a major achievement, the focus of Trespassing’s success should be based on music, and not sexuality. Trespassing is a collection of electro-pop triumphs and confessional ballads that showcase Lambert’s soaring vocals, with personnel comprised of pop music’s premiere hitmakers, such as Dr. Luke, Pharrell, Bruno Mars, Bonnie McKee, and Benny Blanco. The dark and sleazy “Shady” just might be the finest offering on Trespassing; at times sounding (and I can’t believe I’m writing this) somewhat like a combination of the dark synth-scapes of Trent Reznor and the funky new-wave instincts of Prince. It’s a strange, but satisfying musical stew, with three-part harmony and funky guitar work all over it. Adam Lambert isn’t the first Idol-alumni to conquer the charts (see: Carrie Underwood, Kelly Clarkson), but he’s definitely the most unlikely artist to find acceptance there. And, it’s well-deserved.|
CarterMatt – ‘American Idol’ notes: Phillip Phillips, Adam Lambert, and Jessica Sanchez “This week, Adam Lambert also has a chart accomplishment — new single “Never Close Our Eyes” has entered the top 40 on the Hot AC chart for the first time. Currently, the song is sitting at #38 on the chart, and is gaining enough spins to provide some hope that it will continue to climb in the weeks ahead.“
Frontiers LA – Music Reviews: Adam Lambert, Animal Kingdom, Emeli Sandé, Jer Ber Jones, Momus, Rye Rye “Of the ballads, “Broken English” is my favorite (imagine Nine Inch Nails-meets-Goldfrapp). It’s great to hear Adam sounding so confident, focused and happy, proving that his career is really only just beginning.”
Gay Times (UK) – We’ll Never Close Our Eyes “…Defeating oppression and authority through the power of dance, it’s an incredibly gay notion and we love it! Enjoy.”
