Adam Lambert Is Aiming To Achieve Stunning Blake Lewis-Type Greatness

During my nightly bout with insomnia, I was sitting there thinking, where have I seen that ill-advised purple space background on Adam Lambert's album cover before?

What other American Idol runner-up could possibly have used it? Ah, right—Blake Lewis!

Here's hoping For Your Entertainment has the same success Audio Day Dream did, too! Oh, shit. Wait a minute...

    this is more blatent than the JLS album cover being exactly like the first Westlife album cover!

    Speaking of Blake, did you ever listen to his most recent album? "Heartbreak On Vinyl" (YouTube) is by the same people who made "How Many Words" but it's faster and amazingly even better. "Left My Baby For You" is the other highlight--five minutes long but totally worth it for the way it unfolds.

    More than that album cover, I'm worried by all the rumors going around about which song will be Adam's actual lead single (and the fact that less than four weeks before the album's release we haven't heard it). Sometimes artists' leftover songs are fantastic (see: Darin singing the Robyn leftover "Money For Nothing"), but I'm worried about all the speculation that it'll be the Pink/Max Martin song (well, plus the best Pink/Max songs were on I'm Not Dead, not Funhouse, with the exception of "It's All Your Fault").

    Aww, thanks for the link love. :) I always love reading your blog - you always make me giggle. :)

    As for Mr. Lambert, I guess I just don't get it. I just couldn't get into Idol this past season. But I suppose, he could do worse than having a record that is like Blake's first. It may not have made the mon-ay, but it was satisfying in other ways. Hmmm.

    Funny. I absolutely thought the same thing! I didn't hear Blake's first album but I like the song "Sad Song" on his new one.

    Wait? Blake Lewis? "his most recent album"?

    Does...not..compute...(shotgun blast to the face)

    Glad you made the connection. I had a passing thought about it, but didn't quite put it together. And I second PG's thoughts on the current Blake Lewis CD. SO much better, and I really liked the first one, too.

    STFU! It's really sickening how gay people refuse to support other gay people. Adam is breaking ground as an openly gay singer and he needs our support.

    Anonymous, are you serious? I wrote about Adam like every day this week? If that's not support, I don't know what is! I'm not partial to "Time For Miracles," but am anxious to hear the album.

    Anon #1, bwahahahaha. Seriously? SERIOUSLY?!

    Speaking as a homo, that is the same lame attitude that enables new releases of mediocre gay-interest films and sub-par dance tracks by D-list club personalities.

    We do nobody any favours by unleashing terrible "art" onto the unsuspecting masses. Please stop, drop and think.

    Hey! Some of us have a bit of a soft spot for Blakey's endeavours with that whole concept-album shebang, sci-fi cover art and all. :D

    This makes it official. There is no originality left in the world. He gave them a lot to choose from and they came with a hangover and a box of (unsharpened) crayola. That said this mess is better than 'this is it'. Oh boy. Refund central.

    Adam and Blake are my favorite Idols. Their sound compliments each other and their both great showmen. I bet they'd make a great tour duo.
