Album Review: "Trespassing" by Adam Lambert


By Jordan Meehan

Attention Internet! Adam Lambert’s highly anticipated new album Trespassing has…shall we say “found its way” onto the interwebs and I may or may not have been listening to it all day (spoiler alert: I have been).

If you follow me on Twitter you know all too well how excited I’ve been for this album and to hear the tracks that weren’t finished. Well the day has finally come, so here are my thoughts of Trespassing in full. (Since I already wrote about Trespassing, Cuckoo, Shady, Broken English and Outlaws of Love in January, I won’t talk about them too much here)

Trespassing – The title track is one HELL of an opening track to one hell of an album. As I’ve said before, as a huge Queen fan, this track really hits home for me, as it sounds just like a Queen song jettisoned into 2012 (the bass line is especially reminiscent of Another One Bites the Dust). As Adam told us himself back in February, this track is a big exclamation of a “fuck you, I’m fierce!” mentality. It’s big, it’s in your face, it’s expressive and it’s anthemic. Perfect opening to this album. 

Cuckoo – Alright. This song. I’ve been ranting and raving about this song since January and have been DYING to hear it again. It’s a massive dance song with a chorus that’s part pop, part 80s hair metal. If ever there was a song that perfectly showcases Adam’s vocals while still maintaining an insane pop energy, it’s this one. Song of 2012? I would say so. 

Shady – This is another one of the tracks we heard back in January, and it’s as amazing as I remember. This one is a collaboration with Sam Sparro and Nile Rogers and you can hear their funk influence right out of the gate. The lyrics are delightfully suggestive and the bass line swells and grinds right along and leads into a stellar chorus. Total funk-meets-electro. 

Never Close Our Eyes – Funny story about this track. Well…not really. Anyway, when we heard some tracks back in January, we heard this one but we weren’t allowed to talk about it because it wasn’t finished yet. I can’t express to you how difficult this was for me, as this is one of my favorite songs on the album. To me, this is a perfect dance pop song: it’s got great lyrics, great structure, an amazing chorus and Adam’s vocals really, really shine on it. There seems to be a theme of unapologetic love on this album, and it really continues with this track and it fits quite nicely.

Listen to "Never Close Our Eyes" by Adam Lambert


By Jordan Meehan

Everybody stop what you're doing, we've got a new Adam Lambert track that written by Bruno Mars!

"Never Close Our Eyes" appears to be the next single off the highly anticipated album "Trespassing" and it's a HOT track. I wasn't allowed to talk about this one after we heard the album a few months ago and keeping my mouth shut about it has been difficult (but I did, because I'm afraid of Adam's publicist Shoshanna)! "Never Close Our Eyes" is without a doubt one of my favorite tracks from the new album and it has "summer anthem" written ALL over it! This song perfectly showcases Adam's powerhouse vocals and has a beat that will drag you out onto the dance floor and keep you there all night.

Give Never Close Our Eyes a listen and remain super excited for the album!
