lovesMountains - his album is very very good. What will be left of an artist many years later? His music.

From a comment on Amazon:

"Music Again, For Your Entertainment, Strut, Sure Fire Winners, If I Had You, Pick U Up, and Fever are the upbeat, catchy, electroni-fied, dance tracks. These cuts are very catchy, and make you want to sing/bebop along. This is the meat of the album. Pick U Up is fun to listen to; Sure Fire Winners and Strut are sassy and sexy; If I Had You is a great club song; Fever is perhaps the catchiest, most enjoyable song I've hear in recent times. The fact that Lada Gaga had a hand in it, it's no wonder.

Whataya Want From Me, Sleepwalker, Aftermath and Time For Miracles could be considered the "Pop Rock" tracks. Whataya Want is written by P!nk, and reminiscent of her Please Don't Leave Me, to give you an idea. Sleepwalker is very pretty, with an atmospheric backdrop, and wailing guitars. Aftermath is the classic rock song of the album. It's very Daughtry, with an excellent glimpse at Adam's full vocal range: his lower register on the verses, middle range heading into the chorus, leading to his higher registers at the peak of the chorus. This man can sing.

Soaked is the major ballad. It's pretty simple arrangement wise, compared to the rest of the album. Heartfelt lyrics stretched over moody music, with everything that made the country fall in love with Adam's voice. A Loaded Smile is similar to Sleepwalker, tone and atmospheric wise. It's a classic sad love song, but with an etheral feel to it. But the stand out is Broken Open. This is nothing but a haunting synth-like backing track and Adam's gorgeous, moody vocal on top. SO beautiful, truely.

You really need to give this album a fair chance. The short little playable clips do not tell the whole story. A quick run through is not enough. You need to sit down and listen to appreciate it, and realize that this album IS Adam. It's his vision, and an enjoyable one it is."

Is it maybe like his version of 'Ring of Fire'? Jeez, why didn't he do something like THAT!? It may not have been shocking, but it was mesmerizing and jawdropping in a whole different manner.

LOL, even I was shocked. The list is HUGELY long and, nowadays, even laughable. Olivia Newton-John, Petula Clark (!), John Denver; you can't get much more morally subversive and disgusting than them! Even White Christmas was banned, because Elvis sang it!

So, I'm not quite on board with the part of your post that I bolded. _banned rock and roll - classicbands.com_



Wicked, thanks for the list.
My sister never forgave Tipper Gore for trying to censor music. LOL

So Good Morning America ( ABC ) Just cancelled Adam coming on their early show this week.
I would have so loved to hear him sing a ballad song. A slow, and vocal.......moving song.
But, they are afraid, after the awards show, of what he would perform.........I'd of been calling off that
morning vocal too.
But, gosh........I so love his voice when he stands still and sings!

It's a softer and more gentle song, I think. Similar to Ring in that it seems to alternate between a minor key when he sings by himself. Beats me why he sang what he did on AMA...our Adam needs him some new advisors ~

Oh, I forgot about her doing that! When music exhorts to killing people, I think that's pretty disgusting... Petula Clark got banned because she touched the arm of a black man during their duet. Yup, that was the reason. It was Harry Belafonte.

I agree, the album IS very good - I just hope he didn't just shot himself in the foot and keep MANY who would have bought it from buying it now.

I think there are other issues, like ABC was ticked off at him. It's more a vindictive rather than fearful move on their part. I'm pretty sure they can have veto power over what people sing.

Adam Lambert on Alexa Chung show 11/24/09 – video Mr. L

To me Adam seems defensive in this interview. I love the spirit of Rock 'n roll too, but I still think Madonna's tacky (ref. video) & vulgar. Love our Adam to bits...he'll be OK, we'll be OK...

There was rehersal for that show wasn't there? Was ABC totally blindsided by this? I highly doubt it.

I'm really looking forward to his David Letterman performance - I believe it will be really awesome!
