For Your Entertainment
Label: RCA RECORDS LABEL
Adam Lambert nailed many different styles on American Idol, and he does the same on his debut album. Pairing Lambert with the Darkness' Justin Hawkins on "Music Again" was a genius move of glittery glam-rock proportions, with Lambert easily reaching those high falsettos. "For Your Entertainment" is an electric, syncopated romp a la Lady Gaga, as is the Lambert/Kara DioGuardi composition "Strut." The lynchpin, though, is "Whataya Want From Me," a mid-tempo charmer with a strong hook. As a whole, For Your Entertainment is a bit schizophrenic, but an undeniably fun listen.
