TRESPASSING REVIEWS

The album drops in the U.K. on Monday!!

Financial Times (UK) Adam Lambert: Trespassing – 4 stars!

Daily Mail (UK) – 4 stars. “A bracing blend of pop and R&B”

Evening Standard – CDs of the Week  3 stars ” …there are moments to treasure, not least the flag-waving Runnin’ and the Bruno Mars-helmed Never Close Our Eyes. Best of all though is the eye-popping, finger-clicking title track: it’s Pharrell Williams of The Neptunes’ best work in years and nothing here comes close to eclipsing it.”

Virgin Media – Adam Lambert: Trespassing3 stars “To handle the two extremes takes some personality, and fortunately Lambert has no shortage of it. He has the kind of voice to challenge Meat Loaf at his most operatic and enough presence to ensure he’s no flash in the pan. But his second album sees him trying to find his own niche in pop, a setting to suit his undoubted star power. It’s almost a pity that he – or his management – has chosen the electro-rock style so prevalent in the charts right now, from The Wanted to Katy Perry. He could’ve discovered his own space.”

Gigwise – Adam Lambert: Trespassing  “‘Trespassing’ seems, overall, like simply another stage of Lambert’s journey. He’s not yet making pop music work for him as well as he could and while there are certainly boundaries being pushed – hello, ‘Outlaws of Love’, a beautiful gay rights lament – the album leaves the feeling that it could be so much more. It is undoubtedly fantastic but it seems like we’ve only just begun to see what Lambert can do, given the chance.”

PRESS AND BLOG PICKS

Huffington Post UK – INTERVIEW: Adam Lambert’s Big Week – New Single, New Album, Oh, And Taking His Place With Queen

“We rehearsed the songs a couple of times – I was gagging over watching them play the songs, and then I got to sit with them and hear their stories.

“So I’ve basically got the best seat in the house, and a personal rockumentary unfolding in front of me.

“They’re gentlemen, they’re humble but they’re also stars and they know it. So it feels good.”

Lambert, whose own second album is released on Monday, cites his fellow bandmates as role models, too, “for longevity, for proving that you can go through decades shaping rock and music, and just be content, lovely, balanced and chilled”.

NPR – A Close Look At Frank Ocean’s Coming Out Letter A brilliant and nuanced essay by Ann Powers. “We can thank Frank Ocean, not only for making a public statement that sweeps aside shadows and offers young fans another powerfully vulnerable star to admire and emulate, but for reminding us that while proudly declaring an identity can be a politically crucial gesture, often the human heart is not so sure-footed. The process of becoming and unbecoming, loving and losing, is what often makes for the most meaningful art.”

BrianMay.com – Memories of Moscow – some great stereograms and nice words about Adam!

Capital FM – Adam Lambert And Will.i.am Challenge Chris Brown For Vodafone Big Top 40 Top Spot “Adam Lambert will also be looking for a high chart position when he launched new single ‘Never Close Our Eyes’ this weekend, while will.i.am’s former Big Top 40 number one ‘This Is Love’ is also still in the running for the number one spot…View a new picture of former American Idol star Adam Lambert below:”

Showbiz Spy – ADAM Lambert Under Pressure “The American Idol star admits he’s nervous about taking his place with the remaining Queen members in London next week and starts to sing the songs that Freddie Mercury made so famous.”

    Something so haunting and beautiful about the video of his rehearsal of Who Wants to Live Forever. I feel the reverence of the moment for the person filming this. Damn, how happy we all are that there is an Adam Lambert…
