About this deal

You hear people criticize it, likely not part of the community saying things like, "Why does it have to be all about that? Despite a title that suggests a zany rom-com, He Went That Way actually aims its dainty pistol at simmering neo-noir territory, but the action fizzles rather than thrills. The irony of Adam Lambert is that now he is the official stand-in for Freddie Mercury in Queen, it's much less exciting when he adopts Queen's trademark stomp in his own electropop. Baltin: That takes us nicely into the album and some of these songs on High Drama that you chose I imagine were very instrumental for you as you were growing up. It's an explosive first track, and it isn't in a war against the rhythm of the original the way some of the other stompy covers here are - because Lambert's producers haven't vacuumed all of the disco qualities out of it to make it sound more like Queen.

This genre-spanning collection of reimagined covers takes some of Adam’s favourite songs by artists like Billie Eilish, Lana Del Rey, Bonnie Tyler, Sia, Duran Duran and Kings Of Leon to a different dimension thanks to the classic ‘Adam Lambert’ treatment. High Drama’, is a wonderfully diverse collection of covers with a twist, held together by Adam’s once-in-a-generation voice and trademark flair. For me, it’s been really challenging to twist these songs into completely different arrangements and make them sound brand new. David Archuleta Has a Memoir in the Works David Archuleta, who rose to stardom 15 years ago thanks to "American Idol," is now penning his memoir for HarperCollins. While we absolutely need someone to bring us glam rock stump and queer dance pop, Lambert's once in a generation voice is capable of so much more.This review is specific to the bonus track edition of this record, which adds a new first track - Adam Lambert's cover of the queer dance floor classic "You Make Me Feel (Mighty Real" by Sylvester.

Album closer ‘Mad About the Boy’ is a triumph, it feels like it could be a theme song from the next James Bond film and Lambert’s spectacular storytelling skills are masterful and dynamic in equal measure. These arrangements of "Holding Out for a Hero" and "Chandelier" suck out the rhythmic qualities of the originals in favor of that trademark stomp. But Lambert tells me during our recent Zoom chat he is just now getting more comfortable with his voice and role in music.I think identity politics are tricky and complicated, but what makes the arts so important is that we can really help influence pop culture.
