I have been watching a lot of movies and listening to a lot of music over the past few days.
I am disappointed in the Adam Lambert album, For Your Entertainment. [I am/was a huge Adam lambert fan, btw.] And not because he acted like an immature a-hole at the AMA awards. [Smack. You are not Madonna yet, Adam, you need to earn your stripes before attempting shock-value.] Many of the songs on the album have similar beats that blend into each other. Only 3 songs stand out as good to me – and that is because they showcase his voice.
This is the best song – in my opinion. It showcases his voice and is reminiscent of Queen.
I received the Susan Boyle CD the same day Adam’s CD arrived. I really like it. Her voice is wonderful. And her album has sold more than double Adam’s in the first week – she’s up to 675,000 vs. his 250,000.
And now – from her new album. You go girl!
Also, today I tumbled upon a stream of Allison Iraheta’s new album – Just Like You.
You know what? It is way better than Adam’s.
So, all these albums from reality TV shows? They may be good, but none hold a candle to what we watched last night on HBO.
The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame concert. Man! This is a total must see.
I am not even going to name all the stars on this. Okay. Here are some – Jeff Beck Band, Crosby, Stills & Nash, Aretha Franklin, Metallica, Paul Simon, Simon & Garfunkel, Bruce Springsteen & the E Street Band, U2 and Stevie Wonder. Billy Joel. Sting. Jackson Browne. Many many more.
If you missed it, it will air again, here is a link to the schedule.
Movies – next time. Tired.
