Adam Lambert Obsession – Lay Me Down – Stream with Review and Lyrics Super dissection of the song by the one and only Lambosessed: “…A pause in the beat with a delightfully cheeky lick lays down the foundation for Adam’s vocals to come in. No hamsters here and very little meddling. Breathy, laid back, echoey, deep and punctuated by a delicious amount of coarseness in places like “life” and “damn”, it’s an absolute joy. The style is different to what we’ve been accustomed, but the departure is a welcome one. His voice is the soul of the tune, confiding in the verses, then big and belty when needed to lift it to euphoric levels for the dancefloor.”
BrianMay.com – The Show Must Go On: Roger Taylor interview “He’s an incredible singer. He’s got a really magnetic stage presence. He’s very sexy. And, of course, our more theatrical songs suit him perfectly. He’s a diva – a male deva. “
QueenRockBand – ‘I definitely paid my dues’: Adam Lambert Remembers His Difficult Path to Fronting Queen ““I was doing a lot of theater stuff, but I was in the ensemble, always,” he adds. “I would never get hired beyond that. I was getting frustrated. I was getting to pay my bills, finally, but I don’t feel like I’m creating something. I had this hunger to make something.””
Billboard – Avicii (Cover Story) “But the Avicii who speaks from his collaborator and new buddy Nile Rodgers’ East Hampton, N.Y., studio in August-where he’s already working on True’s follow-up-is different. His usually clipped answers have become monologues. There’s an energy and confidence to his voice. He sounds like a guy who finally, at long last, feels ready to drink his own Kool-Aid. “If you want to make a hit song, all you really need to do is rewrite an old hit song. That’s how everyone works,” he says. “But that’s a very short-term way of thinking. It’s not going to make something that really makes an impact on people.”
Much Music – 25 Artists who passed on famous songs – “Pink teamed up with songwriters Max Martin and Shellback to pen Whataya Want From Me, but when the song didn’t make the cut for her fifth studio album, it went to American Idol winner Adam Lambert, who used it to win a Grammy for Best Male Pop Vocal Performance.“ He didn’t actually win American Idol or the Grammy, but it sure seems like he must’ve, eh? LOL!
Spin Magazine – EDM Superstar Avicii Made a Kazoo-Heavy Kinda-Country Record With ‘True,’ It’s Awesome – Spin rates the album 8 of 10!! “It turns out that he’s a smart, fun, and persuasive pop songsmith, closer in spirit to Bruno Mars than Swedish House Mafia…Avicii has made an album with the kind of pure pop heart that’s as likely to appeal to eight-year-olds as it is to amped-up ravers. Ever since the days of Smart E’s “Sesame’s Treet,” rave has been about getting in touch with one’s inner child, and Avicii pulls it off here with a virtual island of misfit (and slyly well-matched) toys where, to the surprise of everyone, no one comes out looking like an ass.”
