I knew it! This runner up phenomenon from last season’s American Idol who was so unique , who had so much talent, and who was so much bigger than the American Idol stage has reportedly sold so much albums in pre-sales that he has already hit the #2 spot in the album charts. His debut album does not even get released until November 24th!
This is Adam Lambert. We are seeing the birth of a Superstar. With the recent death of Michael Jackson, there is really no one that comes close except for maybe Madonna, in that realm. Lambert has those qualities, and if Idol was any indication, he can pull it off.
His modernization of glam rock and his unique 21st century take on it will certainly add something new to the music scene tied down by tired pop redux songs and an over saturation of hip hop. He has some of the glitz of Elton John but Lambert certainly takes it to the the next level with his theater training.
For Lambert fans, his album is akin to a Star Wars movie opening. He not only has the force with him. He is the force.
