Down The Rabbit Hole
Whataya Want From Me
Adam Lambert's set for VH1's Unplugged has made its premiere online. I've included all of Adam's performances above, but I recommend watching the special in its entirety HERE so as to hear all the tidbits in between songs or catching it on VH1 Friday, April 9th @ 11/10c. I was looking forward to this for some time, & no shade to Adam--especially because he hit it outta the park vocally, but it was kind of a disappointment. The biggest thing for me is that I just don't think his songs work very well acoustically. It's either that or the particular arrangements they used, well, sucked because that daggum drum was getting on my nerves! For example, I think the gorgeous "Broken Open" (How can you touch that gorgeous electronic studio version?!) would've worked just fine with piano accompaniment only. Also, "Mad World" + Bongo = Does Not Compute. I've just gotta mention too how convenient the "Alice In Wonderland"-inspired bonus track "Down The Rabbit Hole," which is pretty out there, was. Regardless, I still love Adam & his debut album For Your Entertainment, which is available now.
