Trespassing by Adam Lambert
Released: May 2012
Label: RCA RECORDS LABEL
If Adam Lambert's last album was a strut down the catwalk at a glam rock fashion show with Lady Gaga in the front row, then Trespassing is a whirl around a discotheque patrolled by Nile Rodgers -- literally, on blue-eyed funk cut "Shady!" His lyrics are light, but Lambert works it on the first half, bolstering his four-on-the-floor with hipster dance beats, MJ-meets-Queen rock sass and shivering club thumps. With building layers and a falsetto verging on Martha Wash, "Kickin' In" is the highlight. Then things turn slightly toward generic pop filler, but Adam sings it so well, you won't care.
