Ok, So Last night decided to check out and get up to speed what all the buzz is about with Adam Lambert by checking out some of his American Idol Performances on Youtube then Previewing His Debut Album & Lead Single 'For Your Entertainment'.

I have to say I really like the Single, but Nothing's really jumping out at me about the rest of the Album, maybe one or 2 songs. Maybe it'll grow on me with a few more listens. :thinking:

Apparently some reviewers are saying 'Fever' is an Old Lady Gaga Demo, and that one of the songs is Inspired by Muse. :thinking: I also agree its a pretty diverse album, 14 Songs from all different types of Genres.

One thing that bugs me those is I think He overuses that High, Queen-esque Rock Falsetto voice a little too much in a lot of the songs, It could get a little grating if you listen to a couple of his songs at a time.

But we'll see, I think He's got a good shot at becoming another (and the First American Idol Male besides Daughtry really) Artist to breakthrough overseas. :thinking:

I got the album when it was released, it's actually quite a good set of songs. Personally I got over it after the 3rd listen but there's a few hits there. I like Pick U Up the best, and that Pink song Whatayawantfromme.

'For Your Entertainment' was a good, although somewhat by-the-numbers pop song, it was a good intro track.

I'm absolutely loving 'Whataya Want From Me', which is coincidentally the song he has just released to try and breakthrough in Australia.

Listened to the Whaddaya Want From Me song on Youtube after seeing the comments here - For a pop song it's actually not bad, and certainly better than most stuff on the chart atm.
