Follow-up: Adam Lambert Pop or Flop? The critics say…

Filed under: Uncategorized — Carly J Hallman @ 8:49 am

I posted a couple weeks ago regarding Adam Lambert‘s thoughts on his then-unreleased album. Lambert’s album “For Your Entertainment” was released November 23, the day after his now-infamous AMA performance. So, what are the critics saying?

LA Times– 3 of 4 stars

“It would be great to hear a whole album from Lambert exploring this way of reworking pop balladry. For now, though, he’s keeping his options open. And that’s fine: His line of credit should extend for a while.”

Rolling Stone– 3 of 5 stars
“The songs sound great but feel strangely stuffy — Entertainment seems like a disc that was overthought.”

The New York Times
“This is an overwrought, clunky, only sparingly entertaining record, constantly in argument with itself.”

The Huffington Post– 4.5 of 5 stars
“From its iconic cover, to its unique retro-contemporary fusion, to its memorable hooks, Lambert’s appropriately labeled album contains all the elements of a massively successful–and influential–pop-rock classic.”

  2. Typically only GIRLS tilt their head and wear a bow like Adam does, in some effort to look pretty so guys take notice. It’s oblivious he thinks he is a girl. Oh, wait, maybe he sort of is… Oh, and his music sucks so bad along with his screeching cat voice. Horrible! He was ok on idol, but he now officially sucks.
