After having the release date pushed back several times since last year, it looked like Adam Lambert‘s sophomore effort could be dead on arrival. It turns out that nothing could be further from the truth. The new album, which Lambert executive produced and co-wrote, is off to a highly successful start. Both critics and fans alike are flocking to the new collection of songs with an enthusiastic positivity that has the “American Idol” runner-up smiling.
During a week of heavy press and promotion for the new release, The Hollywood Reporter quoted the glam-rocker as saying, “Music doesn’t have an orientation [or] a preference. Music is universal. We all love to dance, we all love to feel and we all love to sing along to stuff. [It] doesn’t matter if you’re gay, straight, black, white, girl or boy.”
That statement is evident in the broad audience Lambert has acquired since his tenure on “Idol.” “Trespassing” is an authentic, personal release derived from the blood, sweat and tears of its maker; however, it never takes itself too seriously, allowing a fun mix of dance tracks throughout.
