REVIEW: Adam Lambert – ‘The Original High’

A solid high-energy pop return…

2009 American Idol runner-up Adam Lambert is finally back with a brand new album!

After touring with Queen, Lambert is all set to go ahead with new solo material with new album ‘The Original High’. With Max Martin by his side this time around, you can’t go wrong!

Fuelled with experiences of living in LALA Land to tails of the heart, Adam provides a well-rounded account of his life on ‘The Original High.’ Emotions also run high on the album with Adam delivering some powerful pop ballads, particularly on ‘There I Said It” which deals with no longer wanting to be under someones thumb and growing into your own.

Tove Lo also makes an appearance on sure-to-be future hit “Rumors”, which is quite the smart move on Adam’s part as the Swedish singer has been dominating global airwaves with “Habits” and “Talking Body”.

Although some tracks like “The Light” are generic, it’s all bubbly fun and would be perfectly suited at any popular nightclub. As for the deluxe edition, the bonus tracks don’t really flow with the standard edition so stick with the standard.

VERDICT: There is no denying, Adam Lambert has some serious vocal chops and it shows on this energetic pop album.

Best Tracks: Ghost Town, Another Lonely Night, There I Said It, The Light & Rumors.

Overall Rating:
7.5/10
