So you're surprised that people are actually basing their comments on an album's style by - gasp - taking the first two songs on offer as being representative of overall approach? Why shouldn't they? Isn't that what a major label does when they choose which two songs from a mainstream artist they'll first allow the public to hear? "This is who this artist is".

Anytime a big single is released, people come on here and give their opinions on what it indicates. When the new Bon Jovi single came out, we all discussed based on what was offered, etc. Or are we supposed to hold our 'bravura' until another month has passed and Steve thinks the muzzle can come off regarding making inferences? Because Lord knows I shouldn't give my boy Can Man a little ribbing until I've heard the whole album. Tsk, tsk...noooo.

Oh, some variety will be found within, sure, and I am indeed curious about listening to the whole thing....but when the first single has got the disco thing going on, and you have a second song as corroborating evidence of style, I think you'd have to be pretty stubborn to cling to the notion that Adams Lambert is bringing hard rock back to mainstream audiences, no? Is this how someone who has any interest in being a mainstream beacon of hard rock, as previously predicted, goes about it?

Oh, but who knows! Maybe the track "Fever" he wrote with Lady Gaga will rawk your socks off. Or maybe the song he wrote with Kara DioGuardi will have some real old school guitar riffing. Because when you combine what we've already heard with the music of Lady Gaga and DioGuardi, well gee, maybe the writing is on the wall.

Much as other flavors may season it, Lambert has just told us what canvass he's working with (unless he's about to deliver the most schizophrenic album of all time). How clearly do you need it spelled? Oh... you need the full album to understand? Suit yourself, but while the disc arrives, I can infer from the evidence on display, thanks very much.
