popout: FROOT (Marina and The Diamonds)
popout: Uptown Funk (Mark Ronson feat. Bruno Mars)
popout: One Direction’s ‘Steal My Girl’ (Live)
It’s not necessarily my fave track off One Direction’s new album (Four (Deluxe)), but it’s catchy and a good bop. I’m looking forward to their upcoming single Night Changes though (yep, I listened to the leak) since that’s more my style.
Anyway, saw this live performance of ‘Steal My Girl’ and thought I’d share :)

Hey, hey, hey… Adam Lambert’s sophomore album ‘Trespassing‘ is now out on iTunes (and Amazon later today)!!! I haven’t had the chance to listen to it yet, but just based on the samples, I already loved Cuckoo! Here’s a round-up of album reviews for you to check out! *Let me know if there are any more out there that I haven’t listed here!
- AllMusic: “sound like inevitable hits and prove that Lambert is a genuine pop star who has now left American Idol far behind”
- Advocate: Hot Sheet: “Standout tracks include the liberating “Cuckoo”and the stirring equality anthem “Outlaws of Love.””
- NY Daily News: “For his follow-up, “Trepassing,” Lambert tips the music in a dancier direction, blatantly courting current radio trends.”
- Rolling Stone: “So here’s the great pop album everybody was hoping Adam Lambert would make…”
- US Weekly: “”The American Idol season 8 runner-up starves off a sophomore slump with a steamy second postshow CD”
- USA Today: ” the album that fans of the former American Idol runner-up have been wanting from him.” (Here’s the track-by-track review)
- Hitfix: “The 15-track set is awash in Lambert’s influences: the aforementioned Queen and Michael Jackson, as well as Scissor Sisters, George Michael, and, even, Parliament.”
- Houston Chronicle: “This is fierce, fun dance music, lifted high into the heavens by Lambert’s supernatural range – and expert help from Pharrell Williams, Dr. Luke, Nile Rodgers, Sam Sparro, Bruno Mars and Lester Mendez.”
- Washington Times: “These songs are steeped in contemporary R&B, ‘80s hair metal, glittery dance-pop and modern-day club culture…. it’s also a career-defining album for Mr. Lambert”
- Newsday: “a well-crafted collision of electronic dance pop and upper-register, booming vocals mostly about pushing the envelope and enjoying life.”
- Slant Magazine: “The dance-floor-ready pop anthems that comprise the bulk of Trespassing make sense for a post-Gaga pop landscape. “
- The Miami Herald: “Stick to the infectious first half, and you’ll be in aerobic dance heaven.”
- Fab Magazine: “Trespassing is worth checking out for the first seven high-energy numbers alone.”
- Billboard: ” The first half of “Trespassing” frolics through well-worn funk, house and electro-pop tropes, but the club capers never get stale, thanks to Lambert’s vocal charisma and ridiculous power.”
- The Hollywood Reporter: “plenty of uptempo glittery pop along with more revealing ballads all of which showcase Lambert’s ridiculous range. “
- San Francisco Chronicle: “Simply put, this guy probably has the best voice of any pop star working today. Even on less-than-stellar material, his soaring voice that then swoops down to a whisper can take your breath away.”
- People Magazine- May 28, 2012 (iPad edition): “The title cut rocks a Queen stomp while the funky Kickin’ In recalls early George Michael”
- Chicago Tribune A&E: “The very precise bifurcation of “Trespassing” has the album starting off with seven breezy, boiler-plate dance-pop tracks before it finishes off with five somber and balladic numbers that make somewhat good on Lambert’s promise to get more personal.”
- Gawker.Com: “Adam Lambert’s consistently electrifying second album, Tresspassing (out this week), is that freedom set to music.”
- JSOnline: Tap: “With the able assistance of producers like Pharrell Williams and Dr. Luke, Lambert polishes the mirrors of his dance club until they reflect every pose with sensuous clarity.”
- eMusic Review: “Deftly idiosyncratic razzle-dazzle with an operatic intensity… it’s the slower, more sensual cuts like “Broken English” and “Outlaws of Love” that best showcase his inimitable wail.”
