    First? Go Adam!

  • PPPofP

    I’m ADAM! Whoohoo…just downloaded the EP…listening to it as I type…just WOW…STUNNING! <3333.

  • cher

    Beautiful. That voice! Wow!! Can’t wait for my physical copy. My son has the download and is loudly singing Aftermath, his new fave. Gotta go close his room door. :) Kudos to you Adam, just absolutely gorgeous. You truly deserve that Grammy nom in spades!!!

  • rs

    Finally a new Adam thread so I don’t have to keep searching the archives to find you all. Got the download as a gift. Thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you, it is playing now and it is magnificent.

    I have a request, I found this link for a French radio interview and song on the Milan thread while reading luval’s wonderful recap, but when I followed the link I couldn’t find the interview. It must be too old. There was just something for a Jonathan Lambert. Can anybody help me find it? Thanks

  • lorismile

    Adam’s EP is up to #42 on the Itunes album chart! :-)

  • koshka

    Boy thought I was tired of Mad World. I’ve always thought that song should be done slow (including the original Tears for Fears version) due to the lyric, but the version on this EP is really good.

  • smeggingnuts

    Its up to #35 now

    Why is Adam the #5 trending topics on Yahoo? Not complaining, but…?

    Why is Adam the #5 trending topics on Yahoo? Not complaining, but…?

    I don’t keep track of all things twitter but there were twitter buzz or “rumors” about Adam’s UK publicist tweeting that Adam met some prince named Prince Azim of Brunei. Don’t know much else other than he showed up at Adam’s UK show. I would love to hear more details!!

  • sr4mjc

    Hey, this Lambert dude can kinda sing! ;)

    When I clicked on Yahoo (#2 trending for me) the headline was he ‘Adam Lambert fancies a teenage boy!’ referencing his comment about Joe McElderry. Adam can’t even say someone is cute in a video. UGH… :(

  • lorismile

    ohhh I can’t wait to hear these songs!! Will have to wait until later though. :-(

    Ohhh he’s at 26 now. This is so exciting! Haven’t had a numbers watch in a while. :-)

  • bridgette12

    I got my download, it’s beautiful. I just hope they will soon make an announcment about the second printing of Adam’s acoustic album, so the ones who missed out will get a copy.

    xwhatfunx The Adam Lambert Acoustic Live! EP is #7 on the US iTunes Pop chart! http://twitpic.com/3dgh4m

    eri9 Acoustic Live is NUMBER ONE on NZ itunes Pop!! Woohoo!! Need to get it #1 overall!

  • Canadian Girl

    I bought a new ITune card this weekend for this occasion but I’ll have to wait until I get home to download the EP. Can’t wait.

  • lovingadam

    i can`t download nor itunes nor amazon, not available to my country =(

  • TXsunshine001

    Go Adam Go!! Looks like lots of fans waited up last night to buy the EP. Now if they will just get that CD restocked on AO. I really think they missed a opportunity by not stocking it in stores, who could walk by that cover and not take one?? We are such lucky fans, we ask for a acoustic cd we get one, we ask for a concert DVD they comply and let’s not forget the beautiful calendar. Of course, now were all broke!Can’t wait for LA

  • luval

    I’ll be downloading EP after work too (and after I shovel snow), so I’m sure it will be number one!!!! Maybe I’ll download just before shoveling.

  • Oksana2000

    I think that AO underestimated demand for CD based on how Remixes were selling. But this is like comparing apples and oranges.
    Does anyone remember what was the highest position on iTunes for Remixes EP??
    It’s #18 right now.On overall. And #5 on Pop. Go Adam!

    luval, download before you shovel and put it on your ipod – you may enjoy yourself so much you’ll shovel the whole neighborhood (or farm?)

  • turquoisewaters

    #18 on tunes.

  • TXsunshine001

    Here is my theory on why Adam was trending on Yahoo. After we all purchases the EP and spent hours listening to it , everyone went in search of Fan Fiction. Don’t even need to see his face to be seduced

    IA I think they used the remixes to judge the market for this EP too (idiots)

    I don’t have exact #’s but I remember that the Remix EP might have made it into the top 1000 briefly for the first day. But individual tracks did a little better since there was the push to buy them separetly. And I don’t think the IIHY EP did that well either I think is might have gotten into the 800′s (maybe can’t really remember)

  • Studio57

    I checked the archives here and the Remix EP made it to #13 on overall Itunes back in April.

    #16

    I agree about underestimating. The demo that this album is going to appeal to- those AI’ers that didn’t particularly like FYE, LOVE to buy physical copies in the store.

  • GreatAdamFan

    So happy to hear that the Acoustic EP’s climbing up the iTunes chart – go Adam! :)

    Here’s the review from Rockstar Weekly: http://www.rockstarweekly.com/cd-review-adam-lambert-acoustic-live.html

  • lorismile

    It’s #18 right now

    YEAH!!! It would be great if he could get into top 10 and get on the front page. :-)

    I was one who did not buy the remix EP but was dying to purchase this one!

  • Oksana2000

    Studio57, thanks.Now we gonna sit and watch how it’s gonna do.Accoustic EP has tougher competition (I think) before Xmas, than Remixes in April.
    I could be totally wrong being an armchair expert…
    How about X-mas Album in 2011? (ducks)

  • lorismile

    and the Remix EP made it to #13 on overall Itunes back in April

    Was that his WWFM remix…with Voodoo?

    I don’t think the IIHY remixes came out in April. The song didn’t some out until May.

  • Oksana2000

    #16 overall.

  • smeggingnuts

    Lorismile
    Yeah it was the one with Voodoo. That one was called Remixes the other one was IIHY (Remixed)

  • Studio57

    Oksana- it has stronger competition yes, but the songs/albums in the top 10-20 on Itunes this time of year sell far more than they do in April, so you cannot compare the rankings with sales.

    Ooops- yes I meant the WWFM/Voodoo remix. Like Smeggs said I don’t think the IIHY ones charted that well.

  • Esqt

    It’s #15 right now overall, #4 on Pop!

    I still can’t get over shortsightness of not making more physical CD. It’s Xmas time for heaven sake. For 4.99+tax you have perfect stocking stuffer. Wrrrrr…

  • Oksana2000

    Did it get any promo? Banner, schmanner, whateva…???

    No banner. It just passed Bruno’s album and is now going up against the major Christmas releases and Kanye/Glee/TS.

    Yeesss so exciting! Imagine us (all around the globe) sitting with our eyes glued to the computer monitor cheering BB on lol!

  • Oksana2000

    He HAS to make it today. Do we know who is releasing albums tomorrow??

  • smeggingnuts

    Oksana2000
    Do you think that he can make BB200 this week? I hope so!( crossing my fingers and toes)

    Well going off the BB number from last week he needs to sell about 7k to make it into BB200. And we know that the pre-sales of the physical CD’s sold out at 7k. So Adam will (should lol) make it onto the BB200. And going by the numbers again he needs to sell more than 12K to get into the Top 100.

    So I am postive he has made it into the BB200 just a matter of har far is the question.

    Oksana I’m at work but almost offshift will look in about 30mins

  • lorismile

    #14!! Jumped over Xmas album.
    God, it’s like watching races..hehehe

    Go…go….go!! LOL So much fun today!

  • Tess

    My bet is he will sell about 20,000…based on the fact his debut album sold about 10% digitally the first week. I think there are enough loyal fans to make the 20,000 a strong possibility.

  • GreatAdamFan

    Gasp….it’s now at #12! Let’s go to the Top 10 now!

  • smeggingnuts

    #14!! Jumped over Xmas album. God, it’s like watching races..hehehe

    And here comes Lambert…oh what’s he he passes Buble and look Kanye stubles its now Lambert in #12

    Lol

  • mmb

    I think bb200 may depend upon when the physical eps ship. None appear to have shipped yet and they won’t count as a sale until shipped. If RCA doesn’t ship them all this week then I don’t think they will count as a sale this week. And what’s weird is that a lot of peeps who ordered physical eps and got confirmations of that order, when you go look at the order status it says ” presale. Sold out”. What that means, I don’t know? Did they sell out earlier than they posted on the site and now can’t fulfill orders they confirmed??? Is this notation meaningless? Who knows?

  • Tess

    I’ve been listening all morning to the EP and I can now say after much comparison that I like the EP version of Mad World better than the AI TV or Tour interpretation. There is just something about the voice and the rhythm of the faster version that I totally enjoy…so sometimes, for me, the way a song is written really ends up being the best version.

  • sr4mjc

    Top 10 US albums!

  • GreatAdamFan

    It is now officially in the Top 10 people – #10!

    Yeah MW is really fantastic on the EP. Everything is working together on that recording, the singing, the instruments… brilliant.

  • bridgette12

    Re: reporting the sales and BB200, I have a vague memory of RCAEd saying that they would report the AO sales of the CD to Soundscan the week of 12/13 (next week, not this week). Sorry, I can’t produce the link; it was about a week-ish ago I think.

  • sr4mjc

    MMB, someone wrote to SonyMyPlay and they were told that the sold out notation just reflects the status of additional orders. They were assured that all those hard copies ordered will be fulfilled.

    But if they don’t ship this week, they won’t count this week in the totals. This is probably a good discussion for the numbers thread!

    Tess, I totally agree. I was really ticked when I found out MW was on the EP and Sleepwalker wasn’t – until I heard MW! It’s without a doubt, in my opinion, the best performance I’ve heard him give of it. It’s one of my favorites on the EP. Yea! Top 10!!!!

    For those of you who are interested in adding the beautiful acoustic version of Sleepwalker that Adam performed at Blick.ch in Switzerland last Spring to your Acoustic Live set, there is a download link posted on AO. I’m not sure whether this is an mp3 straight off of the youtube video (posted by smeggs: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i4XWL0N-TzE ), or whether the audio has been enhanced somehow for this mp3 (courtesy of indybeck).

    In any case, here is the AO post (go to the top of the thread):

    But he just bumped out Mumford and Sons and is #9!!!!

  • cwm

    To round out this beautiful Acoustic Live collection, here’s the best recording I’ve found of acoustic Broken Open — from the Tokyo Glam Nation show. Adam performed it octoberly (!) that night, and it even has a very sweet message at the beginning to boot.

    Of course the audio quality isn’t perfect like what’s on the EP, but it’s still pretty great for a concert youtube.

    Review of the EP

    http://blogs.chron.com/tubular/archives/2010/12/adam_lambert_go_1.html

    The lush, lovely Soaked was a true moment in Lambert’s live show, propelled by flawless, fearless vocals. That feeling is captured here and remains goosebump-worthy. (SERIOUSLY, Y’ALL.)

    They even posted a Soaked video for tour :)

  • hersheydog1

    Yep, me too – for each computer actually and from Amazon too because for some reason I think their downloads are better quality.

  • zzatrms

    The only downside? At five tracks, Acoustic Live! is much too short. You’ll likely be hitting the repeat button at least twice.

    From the review Smeggs posted and I agree.

    I also am guilty.

    guilty!

    I think we all are

    I just downloaded the EP and the tracks are absolutely beautiful. I am guilty too. I ordered the hard copy EP also, but I had to download the tracks now. One for the car, one for the computer. Monte’s guitar playing is great on the tracks as well. I hope it stays at the top of the charts. I was so sad that the tour came to an end, but we continue getting great Adam news and music – Grammy nomination and acoustic EP. Keep it coming Adam.

    I agree with the guy from Houston Chronicle. Too short! I want my “Sleepwalker” and “Broken Open” to be on this EP. (Pouts)

    Always better to leave people wanting more, of course! Particularly good to leave critics wanting more so they’ll say that in their reviews!

    Ha, I also think the EP is too short! I added the audio track of DTRH from VH1 and it works perfectly, almost the same soundlevel as the EP tracks.

  • saga

    I added the acoustic Sleepwalker from the spring Switzerland promo from CWM’s earlier post.

    Yeah I tried that too but the soundlevel is so different from the professionally edited tracks that it annoys me (and thats why I wanted more professionally fixed tracks on this EP). DTRH was the only one that I felt worked…

  • Milly21

    oooh if i woulda had the choice i woulda made the ep longer too. an ep cant be more than 8 tracks right? so i woulda replaced music again with sleepwalker, and added acoustic down the rabbit hole, and whole lotta love :)

    but right now i love it so much. its perfect.
    adam needs to sing Soaked just like that on tv one day. he’ll blow all the naysayers out of the water! aftermath is amazing too. it was my least fave on the album, but this is perfection!

  • asifclueless

    Exclusive info from Adam:

    “While I was in Amsterdam for the GN tour, I filmed a segment for the tv show THE VOICE OF HOLLAND. A few contestants came to my soundcheck and we chatted about music, what life is like after a show and touring.

    They even sang ‘Whataya Want From Me’ to me! It was a fun piece so be sure to check it out! It is on this Wednesday Dec 8th. Those not in Holland, I believe it will be posted online or on youtube!”

  • Maura73

    It’s wonderful to hear a real, uncomputerized voice doing pop. I wish they’d included SW and BO, but this thing is so gorgeous that I can’t complain. I don’t really have a favorite. Just the fact that a singer is SINGING is enough to get me teary.

    The sad fact, of course, is that RCA did not promote the ep at all: No tv appearances, no banners on itunes, no presales, no physical presence in stores. Nothing. The ep is selling purely digitally, purely on Adam’s own reputation as a great singer. That makes it even more impressive.

    More than anything, I admire an artist who excels at his art.

  • lorismile

    I think RCA has done a great job promoting Adam so I’m not going to jump on them for this. I want Adam to make money and if that means they release it electronically only, so be it. We don’t know how many he would sell versus how much it would cost to send them to all the stores. Also, I’d rather his TV appearances go towards album #2.

    As much as I get mad it won’t ship this week, it will give him two weeks of good sales. :-)

  • smeggingnuts
  • Maura73

    @smeggingnuts, it never fails to amaze me that RCA, and Adam himself, have yet to figure out that Americans (not international fans) prefer him singing slow, moving songs with a minimum of production. That’s where he excelled on idol. WWFM did far better than IIHY for that reason. This ep is not a computerized remix. It’s exactly what people liked on idol, and, clearly, want now. The ep is not #8 on itunes because cray Glamberts alone are buying it.

    @lorismile, there’s been NO promo for the ep, which is #8 on itunes right now. Adam’s second album is not going to be released till summer, and that’s if we (and he) are lucky. He needs media/radio presence to tide him over the eight months he must go without a radio single…which is, btw, another bizarre RCA decision. Why not release SW in the US? Why release SW in Canada without editing it for radio?

    This ep could have gone top ten overall if RCA had given it any kind of promo, and if RCA had put it in stores. That RCA failed to promote it is stupid.

  • smeggingnuts

    WWFM did far better than IIHY for that reason.

    I also think there was alot of emotional reasons included in why WWFM did so well. There was alot of emotions behind the fan support do to fears. And IIHY didn’t have all that because the fans had settled down and realized that Adam wasn’t in danger anymore.

  • sr4mjc

    @smeggingnuts, it never fails to amaze me that RCA, and Adam himself, have yet to figure out that Americans (not international fans) prefer him singing slow, moving songs with a minimum of production.

    I don’t. I hope they never put him in this box. I love this EP, but would be very unhappy if they only let him show one side. Love the upbeat songs, they are so fun! I seriously love Voodoo and DTRH because they are a little left and more interesting, I hope we get more of that as album tracks as well next time.

    I hope there is a banner tomorrow for the EP. Especially pre-Grammy, this deserves to be heard by all the voters.

  • asifclueless

    It’s fun to watch and follow this race. I’m so happy and proud of GRAMMY NOMINEE ADAM LAMBERT.

    It’s kind of deja vu when I saw Adam jumped past Buble’ and Groban. They are my exes. BB made them my exes. He made other artists whom I listened to everyday my exes – from Pavarotti, other pop tenors and sopranos like Bocelli, Helmut, the gorgeous Il Divo (sorry! Urs, I still love you.), Sarah Brightman, Lara Fabian and many others.

    Now my playlists are all Adam Lamberts. But all my exes are amicable. Somedays I’ll go back to them.

    Right now Adam is the best vocalist out there. If the Grammy won’t give an honor to Michael Jackson this year, Adam will win this Grammy hands down. I feel it.

    What number is he now?
    I have to go to bed. It will be midnight here soon.
    Good night, All.

  • Maura73

    @sr4mjc Voodoo and DTRH are my favorite songs on the album, so ITA. However, it seems that most Americans seem to prefer a soulful Adam to the iihy Adam. This is the crucial difference between the remixes and this ep. This ep is exactly what people wanted from Adam, and the sad thing is that, thanks to the complete lack of promotion, most people don’t even know that it’s available.

    As far as limitations: An established artist can afford to branch out. Gaga, who is known for one type of music, is now secure enough to introduce another. It’s difficult to make everything happen at once for an artist, and, imo, that’s what RCA and Adam went for, and missed, by releasing iihy after wwfm.

  • spiffysmile

    I also think there was alot of emotional reasons included in why WWFM did so well. There was alot of emotions behind the fan support do to fears

    I think WWFM went way outside the core fans. My daughter is not an Adam fan and she has it on her iPod. I also know people who love the song and did not know it was Adam’s song. It’s just an awesome song by an awesome artist! :)

  • smeggingnuts

    This is the crucial difference between the remixes and this ep.

    well thats not really true there is a very small market for remixes. As apposed to an acoustic EP. Not many people will buy 4 versions of 1 song. They might buy 1 or 2. That is like compairing apples to elephants. I think the reason Remixes sold better that IIHY (Remixed) was because there was a new song Voodoo on it and there was alternative verisons of 2 songs (2 WWFM and 3FYE) where as IIHY was 5 versions of IIHY.

    If you think about the AI audience they are the ones that would have bought the CD pre-order. So they already had all of the songs which means there is almost 700k OTHER people would liked IIHY enough to purchase it. WWFm was a frikken amazing song that is why it sold better. If IIHY had sold like 300k or less I would say that people don’t like pop/elctronica Adam but that isn’t the case.

    anywho thats all IMHO and YMMV and all that jazz

    I think RCA has done a great job promoting Adam so I’m not going to jump on them for this. I want Adam to make money and if that means they release it electronically only, so be it. We don’t know how many he would sell versus how much it would cost to send them to all the stores. Also, I’d rather his TV appearances go towards album #2.

    ITA — RCA has played this beautifully — the EP is an infill project, not a big investment or expense to Adam — so it will earn Adam and RCA some money and keep fans engaged. Anything else is just a plus.

    Also, regarding the song selection on AL!, I think they wanted a mix of tempos and wanted to include WWFM and MW, Adam’s too biggest hit songs. (We do not know what MW sold during Idol but it was a bit online hit, like had big sales.)

    My thought on Sleepwalker is that they still have a live concert DVD to promote and Sleepwalker is a very important concert moment. I think they may have decided to hold it back for strategic purposes.

    Raises American hand. This 26 year old doesn’t. Music Again was my favorite on the CD followed by FYE and IIHY. WWFM was #5 after Strut.

    The keyword I think should be “some”.

  • Maura73

    @Q3, An ep that has received NO promo at all yet managed to make it to #8 on itunes overall clearly had more promise than a simple “infill” project. Many fans realized this when merely a rumor of it brought spontaneous media attention, followed by silence from RCA. It’s RCA’s job to realize what seemed obvious to the most ignorant fan, and to provide a minimum of promotion for a promising release, but they did not do that. Sorry, but that is not competent management.

    Also, thanks to RCA’s decision not to release SW in the US, and to RCA’s decision to release SW in Canada without even offering an edit to radio (is this wise management?), Adam is facing a 10 month blank in North American pop culture until his new album is released this summer. No more singles. This ep was the last major product which could widen his fan base. The tour dvd will appeal to fans alone.

    Of course, RCA might have the forethought to release a single from the second album to whet appetites. However, being the thoughtful, wise label, RCA did not do that much for FYE, so I’m not going to hold my breath.

    The sad fact is that Adam needs more than “infill.” He’s NOT huge. His last release was NOT a huge smash.

  • rainbowgal

    Do you think my recent download of the ep is the reason for #6?!?!?! LOL I’m like most here – guilty as charged – I had to download those songs to my computer. I purchased 5 of the hard copies for Christmas gifts so I’m glad to hear they are shipping soon. I found this link to an acoustic Sleepwalker from Zurich. View is not good but the vocals are great. And there’s very little fan “noise”. This might work for those of you who make mp3s.

    Foo Fighters did the same thing too. I always only ended up listening to one side, but I am one of those Adam fans that like both sides of him. I and many others have said this before- Adam’s fan base is so split I think the concept of the FYE album worked out much better than if he would have went in one direction.

  • CindyM

    @smeggingnuts, it never fails to amaze me that RCA, and Adam himself, have yet to figure out that Americans (not international fans) prefer him singing slow, moving songs with a minimum of production.

    I so don’t agree with this. A lot of the younger fans I know loved BOTH IIHY and WWFM. I love FYE because it’s got a variety of songs. Maybe some American Idol fans want that, but some of those fans often want Adam to be someone completely different than he is.

    OMG….Get out!!!! WooHoo ….. BTW I think RCA and all did not factor in his Grammy nomination…..His Grammy Nomination….(Had to post that again) :-) Which alone garners additional interest and this EP is a great showcase for validation that he most certainly deserved the nomination. I think it would be awesome if Oprah or Ellen or Leno or all three had him on a sing a few of the songs acoustically so Grammy voters can see him in all his glory. Also get America behind him. Like someone said Acoustic Adam will get back fans that possibly AMA pushed away. Bruno Mars was sang at the Grammy Nomination Awards show. IMHO

  • lach1

    The decision regarding the Acoustic Live EP was Adam’s & RCA’s which they have done a fine job thus far. I work in Sales & Marketing and what appears to be a few pennies to the outside observer is actually more costly than one can imagine.

    I would rather under project sales and end up in the black than over produce and in up in the red. Besides media buzz stating sold out and people looking for a rare hard copy of Adam’s Acoustic Live CD is much better press than a bin of CD’s for $1.

    Besides I remember the same arguments last year about RCA, re: WWFM release, about the tour and how things would be so much better if he was an opening act to expand his fanbase, no dancers needed and now the EP.

    I am sooo happy they released an EP. I am a little bit peeved I missed the first edition hard copy EP CD but I am crossing my fingers for the 2nd edition.

It’s RCA’s job to realize what seemed obvious to the most ignorant fan, and to provide a minimum of promotion for a promising release, but they did not do that. Sorry, but that is not competent management.

    Also, thanks to RCA’s decision not to release SW in the US, and to RCA’s decision to release SW in Canada without even offering an edit to radio (is this wise management?), Adam is facing a 10 month blank in North American pop culture until his new album is released this summer. No more singles. This ep was the last major product which could widen his fan base. The tour dvd will appeal to fans alone.

    Of course, RCA might have the forethought to release a single from the second album to whet appetites. However, being the thoughtful, wise label, RCA did not do that much for FYE, so I’m not going to hold my breath.

    The sad fact is that Adam needs more than “infill.” He’s NOT huge. His last release was NOT a huge smash.

    I think that the whole thing needs to be viewed in context — and I agree with a couple of your points but….

    1. iTunes is a very small part of US album sales. The fact that AL! is in the Top 10 is great but does not mean that that it would have been Top 10 at retail — the vast majority of album sales. It is a digital-only release with the exception of the limited edition CD sold on AO.com and now sold out.

    What promotion should RCA have done? Even if they wanted to spend several hundred thousand dollars to promote a US Pop radio single, radio is already pretty much frozen. Note: I love this EP but what is the radio track? What format radio would play it?

    The articles were written because RCA PR promoted the album to major news outlets. They real reviews were written because RCA sent our promo kits to reporters.

    2. I agree that they should have released a radio edit of Sleepwalker in Canada. But I am convinced that Sleepwalker could only have been a hit in the US if they spent a fortune on it — and that would have put Adam in the red. Why do fans want Adam to whip out any profit from FYE and start off on Adam #2 in a whole. I just to not understand this concept. I want Adam to be known, successful, recognized as the talent he is and make some money.

    3. Adam goes into Adam #2 with two US Top 20 hits — one a major hit. IF they had released Sleepwalker in the US and it performed like it is in Canada (a country where HAC is the #1 format), Adam could have gone into Adam #2 with his last song as a miss. Fans keep assuming that Sleepwalker and Fever would have been mega hits but there is no sign that that is the case. (Look at Fever’s struggle in Australia, and Sleepwalker’s lack of sales in Canada.)

    4. This is the statement that I disagree with completely: “This ep was the last major product which could widen his fan base. The tour dvd will appeal to fans alone.” Adam is being marketed as a visual artist. The DVD will be a much more important and more powerful marketing tool for Adam. I love Adam’s live vocals — and think they are unparalleled by any current singer. But the combination of Adam’s voice, his visual presentation and the show, captured on a DVD is the way to expand his fanbase. At the least, a handful of these performances will be distributed on VEVO and non-fans will be about to view professionally recorded video and audio (which we know from the EP is great) of Adam performing.

    The sad fact is that Adam needs more than “infill.” He’s NOT huge. His last release was NOT a huge smash.

    There is nothing sad about how RCA has promoted Adam, the album he created, his worldwide tour or his sales. He has a major international hit single, 6 singles that charted in at least 1 country, and one of the top selling album in the world (past 12 months).

    And the best news in a while is that Adam #2 is planned to be released worldwide at the same time. (from Adam’s interview in France.) This is because he has established himself as an international artist.

    I am not a big fan of Sony Music Entertainment in general, but with a couple of exceptions, they have done a great job promoting Adam. Idol gave him the chance to prove that he deserved to get a major label contract, but RCA/Sony, not 19, funded the promotion and marketing that is making Adam an international star.

  • cwm

    I totally understand RCA’s decision not to ship hard copy product to stores — that is a major major investment which may or may not have paid off.

    I do wish, however, that they would invest in an itunes banner for the overall page and the pop page. I think that would be a very good thing and doubt that it costs all that much.

    I know we all wish the EP was on high-profile display in every major retail outlet. The “problem” is that Adam is in a very different place than he was a couple of weeks ago: Now he’s GNAL! :) All in all, it’s a nice problem to have. You can bet that NOW they know and should be able to roll out CD #2 flawlessly *fingers crossed *

    ITA- Just like when you buy a greatest hits album from an artist, they always leave out at least one or two biggies so that down the road you will be more willing to buy a “Greatest Hits 2″ album.

    I know it’s been discussed before, but how do the itunes charts compare with the industry charts? Are the itunes charts a good indicator of how well the album will end up charting? Yes? No?

    iTunes is a small part of the overall album sales. Digital Album sales are usually <26% of total album sales. And iTunes is usually around 12% of album sales. Varies a lot by genre and artist.

    Since this is almost entirely a digital release – there Billboard Chart position will be substantially lower than the iTunes position. He will need to have about 14K units to make the top 100, 22K-26K to be in the top 50. It will be hard for a digital only release of song versions to chart high on Billboard 200 but looks like it will chart! And that is a big deal for a digital only EP.

  • TXsunshine001

    It’s kind of sounds like the DVD was completed before the overseas shows. There were a couple of songs/performances I would love to have see included. Paris, Germany & Amsterdan certainly has some memorable performances. Do DVD’s get a content rating??

  • dhunken

    What promotion should RCA have done? Even if they wanted to spend several hundred thousand dollars to promote a US Pop radio single, radio is already pretty much frozen. Note: I love this EP but what is the radio track? What format radio would play it?

    I would like to take a stab at this though it may not be a good response. I think at this point they can promote this as Adam the Grammy Nominee hearing his voice in its purity and see why he deserved it. I think Mad World could have been the single on the EP It fast enough its recognized enough and with the current state of covers getting good sales pushes. AKA Susan Boyle, Glee Jakie Evanco. It wouldn’t be such a stretch and I think based on Australia and even our Itunes. Mad World is popular and at one point was the most sold single from the EP now its second.

  • CanadianFan

    I think we are very fortunate that RCA did this “infill” project. David Cook sold a lot of albums and toured extensively, yet he did not get any type of “infill” project this Xmas or last one. As an Adam fan, I think RCA is doing a great job and that Adam is very, very successful considering he is onlyat the beginning of his career.

    The DVD was filmed entirely in Indianapolis.

    Most music DVDs are released as NR “Not Rated”.

    I think at this point they can promote this as Adam the Grammy Nominee hearing is voice in its purity and see why he deserved it. I think Mad World could have been the single on the EP It fast enough its recognized enough and with the current state of covers getting good sales pushes. AKA Susan Boyle, Glee Jakie Evanco. It wouldn’t be such a stretch and I think based on Australia and even our Itunes. Mad World is popular and at one point was the most sold single from the EP now its second.

    They are already using “Grammy nominated” in the PR but that is not promotion.

    I can’t figure out how MW being promoted as a single drives sales. It is not on the album which is in retail stores and the best way to make money.

    Right now in the US IIHY (FYE version) is at 12 bars and WWFM (FYE version) is at 8 bars. The 5 tracks from the EP are all tied at 3 bars. And withing the EP — WWFM, Aftermath and MW have 12 bars, the other two tracks 11 bars.

    They could release MW as a single but what radio format? AC maybe, but that doesn’t drive sales. I there is little to no acoustic music on CHR or HAC stations in the US.

    I think they might be about to do something with Aftermath but not with radio. Would need to be TV or video. And I think Adam needs a break — so let him rest and get ready to work on Adam #2.

    Anyway, none of these 5 tracks was produced for radio — they were produced to be sold as recorded music.

  • AL

    For something released without much promotion, it’s now in the top 150 of iTunes in 14 countries, top 100 in 12, top 50 in 6, top 10 in 4… Go Adam!

    No chance that Adam will come close to Bieber — Bieber’s EP was 8-track CD, a Walmart exclusive and stocked by all Walmarts in the US and Canada. Debuted at #7 US 98,500 units sold, #5 Canada and Platinum in Canada. But it did not hit expectations for the first week which were 140,000 units.

    ITA — no new Sony artist — including Carrie, Kelly and Daughtry — has ever been treated the way Sony is treating Adam. First to do a worldwide headline tour promoting his debut. First Idol to have multiple EPs. And soon first to have a full concert DVD. :)

    Even Bieber does have a concert DVD coming out and he is filling arenas. All he has is a DVD with two live performances on it.

    Of course, there is only one ADAM!

    I totally agree with you, RCA has done a remarkable job promoting Adam in the US/Canada and overseas. From what Adam has said from the beginning, RCA asked him what he wanted to do and made sure he had the resources to do it. He’s had a lot of promotion and opportunities that certainly a lot of the Idols have never had. I think from the beginning RCA recognized his star power and is grooming him to take his stardom to the next level with the release of his second album. I believe Simon Fuller is going to everything he can to ensure Adam’s success.

    If I were RCA, this is a strategy that I would continue to follow. Thing is, there’s a reason we obsessively followed the tour and watched all the videos and even (through donations) financed our own videographer. Adam live is usually better than Adam studio-fied. If they were to released a studio album, then follow it with a live album after each tour, I would buy both versions without resentment. I’d buy the studio album because I’d have to have anything new as soon as it was released. Then I’d buy the live album knowing it would be better.

    In that way, the label could reap a double harvest.

    This may give my age away (not worried) but I can remember a time when you listened to music, if you liked it you bought it. If you were lucky and lived in a larger population you might get to see your star in a live show.

    Now with the internet things have really changed. I am so grateful to Q3, smeggs, lorismile, and all the others who educate us all on the ins and outs of the music industry. That understanding gives new meaning to being a fan.

    Lastly everyone can line up behind me. I’m already in line for the DVD. That just might show up in everyone’s Easter baskets. Perfect for getting all my family members ready for Adam2.

Weeks with no Adam news.

    This is a very dumb question. Why is it that up and coming artists that have virtually no money, can press a CD and sell it in parking lots from the back of their car yet it costs too much money to sell 2011 GNAL’s to a retail store? I’ll take the hits however hard they may be. :-)

  • dhunken

    I do think RCA did fall short on fans/non-fans support of the EP I know my sister and a friend who are not big Adam fans want the EP but the physical copy for Christmas. It sucks that only 7K were printed at first. I hope the 2nd printing comes out soon and at least 25K. I know I want 4 for sure. Maybe more if I get more request from friends and Family. I don’t know why but for some reason they are all coming to me to find out where they can get the physical copy of his EP.

  • cwm

    luval — I’m no expert in the music business, but my assumption would be inventory and distribution costs. There are major expenditures involved in getting a large amount of product produced and distributed to all retail outlets around the country, much less the world. When that guy is selling a CD from the back of his car in the parking lot, he’s only selling in one parking lot at any given time. To get his CD to all the parking lots in the country simultaneously, however — that’s a whole ‘nother ball o’ wax.

    Because it is very hard for retailers to make money selling CDs so they limit the number of CDs to the ones that pay for the space they occupy.

    But if you look at it from the label’s point of view….

    Say you have a recording master and want to release a CD in addition to the planned digital release.

    Production — there are 8,000 major retailer locations with music in the US — if you send each of them 20 CDs — you need to produce 160,000 CDs, pack, label and ship them — $280,000.

    You need to have a sales team to sell the music to the retailer — so since you are a major label they do other things — charge the artist $10K — it’s a bargain.

    You need to create promotional material and send it to the retailers — $5K

    The retailer gets about 35% of sales as margin — they have to pay to operate the store. $4.99 EP would have a wholesale price of around $3.25.

    There is over $300K in expenses. Plus you have to pay royalties on every sale.

    You have to sell > 100,000 EPs to break even for putting AL! EP in retail stores.

    And that is assuming that retailers want to stock a $4.99 EP AND not accounting for the fact that they could replace FYE with AL! Live.

    So here’s my dilemma. I want to keep one calendar and give the other 3 as gifts. And because I’m a selfish selfish fan, if any one of them is signed, I definitely want to keep that one for myself and give the unsigned ones as gifts. :mrgreen: I know I know, say what you will about my weak morals. Anyhoo, if any of them are signed, I can easily tell that it’s not on the outside cover; possibly, though, the autographs are on the inside. But how am I supposed to tell whether any of them are signed on the inside unless I open the shrinkwrap?? And then, what will the gift receivers think if I give them a calendar that is no longer shrinkwrapped? Do you think they’ll notice or mind? What is the right thing to do here??

    Sage advice from my understanding and wise friends at MJs would be very welcome at this time. :-)

    cwm, just wrap them in a glittery wrapping paper. No one will miss the shrink wrap. Besides, you’re doing them a favor by pre-removing the pain-in-the-butt difficult-to-remove plastic! They will be feeling octoberly sooner thanks to you! ;-)

  • marmom07

    Well I love the EP and had to go ahead and download it. I only ordered one copy of the CD but may try to get more copies for gifts.

    I really wasn’t expecting any promotion for this EP. I thought it was pretty much for the fans and would be relatively low cost to produce. The thing is fans talk (shocking! I know) and talk creates buzz. And fans share their music. It gives fans something else to share with others who are not yet fans but could be. While word of mouth is slower than other types of promo it is free to Sony and Adam. The EP has a very different sound/vibe than the album and does satisfy those who wanted to really hear his voice. When the Grammy’s do roll around it will be nice to point to this EP as well as his FYE CD.

    I think Adam continues to build his career block by block and he and his label/management are doing a good job of creating a solid foundation for his ongoing career. A foundation based on both sound fiscal management and a solid body of work that showcases his talent.

  • turquoisewaters

    cwm: So, 4 calendars? And I felt just a bit self-conscious about ordering EP as CD, as CD with poster, and as download. I love how you want to keep the one with the signature. And you should. The signature won’t mean as much to any of your friends as it will mean to you. Just re-wrap, as the others suggested.
    By the way: No, I’m not about to drop. I’ll hang in there at least until Adam retires, and I hope that won’t be for a long long long time. Just wanted to say that there is more to music than numbers, and Adam’s ability to touch your soul trumps other artists’ numbers for me any day.

    Oh, just wanted to add that I really hope Adam is getting time off to rest. I assume the band at least will be with Adam at the Jiggle ball things. I’m guessing since we haven’t heard anything about him in LA (or else where) that maybe he’s stayed overseas somewhere he’s less recognized so he can go out and shop with out the fans or paps. Hope he’s somewhere warmer than it is here in the Mid-Atlantic.

    How could Adam have signed the calendars? He hasn’t been back to the states since the calendars came in, and I doubt they’d send them over to Paris for him to sign.
    I don’t think he’ll sign his until he gets back to LA.

  • Summer

    Acoustic Live is also being sold on Amazon.com – you can buy each song separately or the whole EP.

  • jlurksacto

    How could Adam have signed the calendars?

    Down time between Hawaii and Europe?

  • milwlovesadam

    My guess is that about a dozen are signed. Tops. It’s all marketing.

    Hey, luval, you’re right about lists. There will be a list forthcoming after LA. But, you really tempted me with your liner notes from each show comment upthread. I didn’t do all that! I just remember antics. I can’t possibly recall which shows all that happened in without proper research!

    I’m still trying to watch Cologne WLL without incinerating.

    I swear, as a person beginning to experience “hot flashes”, it is dangerous to watch some of these vids. It’s like my own personal summer!

  • glambotgram

    Ok i did my part. Went to Amazon and bought three. One for me, and sent one to each of my daughters. One is a fan from idol and the other one thinks I am nuts but she is making cd’s for her wedding reception so I told her maybe she could use a couple of these songs. She can’t argue with these vocals.

  • JOJOSIE

    Another Idol did do a DVD of a concert. How do I know, cause I own one of the copies. A cable music channel filmed his show at the Wakefield, in San Francisco. The cable channel played it and had the rights for along time and it finally was for sale only on Amazon.com. The Idol was Taylor Hicks. Taylor had and still has a huge fan base. He sold all his albums with no single out for two months after the CD was released and had almost no radio backing which means his fan base from the show did most of the buying. He also was the first Idol to solo tour and was very successful. I’m glad Adam has a broader appeal. His fan base is strong but I think he has the ability too and has widened his fan pool. I hope they do release a DVD even if it’s only thru Amazon. Got my I-tunes download today, no calader yet, should I worry as I ordered it as soon as it was available.

  • adamisthemanfan

    bought it :) MW is so awesome and yeah I agree its too short lol

    We are such lucky fans, we ask for a acoustic cd we get one, we ask for a concert DVD they comply and let’s not forget the beautiful calendar. Of course, now were all broke!Can’t wait for LA

    This! ITA. We really are lucky. The other posters who have commented on the special treatment Adam is getting from the label are right although I must say it is well deserved. They do it to keep the fans happy and entertained, not because they have to.
    I also do think its a good idea to just focus on the next album. His label just wants to give him a fresh start in some ways so that ppl will forget about the whole AMA thing and move on.
    I think that RCA has promoted him well and believes in his star power and talent (and his fan base of course ;)) but most of all I think that they recognize that he is a true professional and that is what sets him apart from other performers in the industry, including other idols.
    He is not an amateur by any means. He was performing from a very young age and is a trained singer who was getting paid to sing well before American Idol whereas a lot of AI contestants were just normal ppl with normal jobs who liked singing and auditioned for American Idol.
    A vocally untrained singer would have never gotten through several months of touring, doing shows three nights in a row at times, performing such vocally strenuous songs. I think a lot of ppl don’t realize this because Adam himself doesn’t like to talk about the very technical aspects of what he does but that doesn’t mean they are not there. Believe me they are :) Aside from knowing how to work the stage and dancing he knows how to sing properly. Its why professionals in the music industry respect and admire him.

    The problem with lists, is that some concerts need their own lists. Paris, Cologne, and Amsterdam for example. They even need their own vocabulary. New words, new adjectives. Oh my,this is going to be quite laborious I see. And possibly expensive. New spectacles may be needed. Heck, I may even invest in Lasik.

    I’m SO behind the times … I completely missed Copenhagen! Suz’s vid’s are crystal clear and the sound is incredible! I’ve played “Soaked” about 12 times tonight. The red light during the “break” in that song and all you can see are his black hair and black eyes looking from left to right and then his partially open mouth is stunning! Copenhagen seems to me to be one of the top 3 she’s ever captured on video.

    If you are referring to “Whomp at the Warfield”, that is different. It was recorded in 2007 and produced as a TV program. A DVD of the TV program was released January 5, 2010. It was not released by Sony — it was released by Image Entertainment — a Theatrical Film/Movie Distribution Company — it is a DVD of a TV Show. That is different than a concert DVD released by a record label like “Pink: Funhouse Tour – Live in Australia” which was released by La Face her record label and part of RCA/Jive Label Group.

When son #2 comes in, “WHAT are you listening to?” So, I try to explain the whole Suz thing. Let’s just say I thought I had experienced teen eyeball rolling before, but now I really know what it is!!

    Ron, contact me on the fansite anytime!

    And Ron, stop. Do not pass go. Take yourself directly to Paris. Then Amsterdam. Then last, Cologne. For all three shows, the encores of Purple Haze and WLL. But first. Remove all sharp objects. Prepare pillows to cushion your fall to the floor. Pour yourself a tall glass of something cold. Then watch, if you dare. Remember, Cologne last. Please let us know of your condition afterward. If you survive. This is not a mission for the uninitiated Adam fan.

  • rainbowgal

    Ron – I just went back and listened to the Paris Soaked. That is my favorite song. His emotion during this song just goes right to my soul. It’s not unusual to end up in tears. Plus having been single for a number of years, doing the bar scene gives these lyrics a familiar ring. Mind you that was YEARS ago!!!! But it brings back those memories. Our souls are OK!

I wish that the calendars could have been mailed earlier so that peeps could have had a chance to get them signed at a concert if not signed when received.

    Q3 I don’t think the “Thank You” in the acoustic Mad World is from a different concert. If you listen to Suz’s video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cT1EEiP7rwo at 2:51 he says “Thank you Staten Island. We love you.” Then at 2:54 he repeats “Thank you.” This second “thank you” is the “thank you” we hear on the EP. They must have just cut out the “thank you Staten Island we love you part.

I swear I just couldn’t believe that I had seen him perform AND that the performance was better then anticipated. It took days and days for me to come down off that cloud. Now, it just doesn’t seem real. The thing that surprised me the most was that after watching all the videos leading up to Louisville I thought the actual concert wouldn’t seem fresh. I was so wrong. When he walked out onto the stage I was up on my feet from beginning to end and I don’t think my eyes ever left him. Later, I bought a last minute ticket to Evansville and sat further back in the center and actually tried to take in all the backdrops and lights and stuff. It’s funny though as your eyes are just so drawn right to him. Anyways, I found that list I made just the other day and it almost sounds and looks manic…..what a great night and a forever lasting memory. I hope I have the chance to see him again!

    DHUNKEN! It’s great to see you, too! I truly think about you often and hope you’re doing well! You’ll always have my best wishes.

    Yup, one peak’ll do me. Maybe two. I might go for a third. :-) I doubt Adam will ever perform nude for me to find out for sure. ;-)

  • dhunken

    Yeah Finally Adam is feature on the front page of Itunes in the New music area and on the pop page in the new and noteworthy section. And he also on the Pop page had a good size ad in the shape of a business card in the middle of the page. Yippee!!1

    yeah he has one of those card looking advertisements-right in the middle of the pop Page section. And then the little ads for his Acoustic Live EP on the front page of Itunes under new music and also on the pop page under news and noteworthy. Point is they are finally Promoting him

  • onenineeight

    I’m not an Adam fan, didn’t like FYE the album, but I listened to this and thought it was brilliant. I really liked that his vocals were front and center on this.

    Way to ruin my happy thoughts. (only Kidding) yeah I know but the business card size ad on the pop page is nice and a few of the baby ads are good too. Its better then he got for the Remix albums. I’m happy there is some effort at promotion for the Acoustic EP. Better then most. :-)

    12/07/2010 at 12:29 am

    Q3 I don’t think the “Thank You” in the acoustic Mad World is from a different concert. If you listen to Suz’s video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cT1EEiP7rwo at 2:51 he says “Thank you Staten Island. We love you.” Then at 2:54 he repeats “Thank you.” This second “thank you” is the “thank you” we hear on the EP. They must have just cut out the “thank you Staten Island we love you part. At least this is what I think! Ha! Not that any of this matters!!!! LOL!!!

    Oh thanks! I think the video I have in my file for GNT SI is not Suz526′s.

    But the “Thank You Staten Island” is still there — just adjusted so you can barely hear it. But Adam kind of mumbles it on the AL! version.

    IAC I just love that Thank You at the end. It is like the laugh at the end of Pick U Up — a beautiful grace note to close out the song — and in this case the EP.

    US and Canada — he is in New and Notable, and #1 in the New Releases under $8. In Australia – New and Notable. And in New Zealand he has an ad tile. No big banner — yet! I have hopes! :)

  • emmuzka

    This just came to me: Adam’s Men in Black actually managed to keep Take Two from being released before/during the EP. EP might lose buyer potential from not being awailable in stores but at least theat potential didn’t transfer to sales for those greedy bastards.

    So yay for Adam’s Men in Black! :)

  • smeggingnuts

    Dhunken
    Lol I don’t know I just thought the large ads at the top that rotate were the banners and the tiles are tiles??

    No, actually they are …. um…. squares!

    Thanks Q3 that’s what you call that ad thingy on the Pop page in the middle an Ad Tile. Makes sense. I am the one who confused some as I called it a small banner but Tile fits perfectly Thanks so much. I hate being ignorant. You help so much in that area so I feel a lot less that way by answering the questions I have very little clue on. You’re a great internet buddy! So happy to be able to cross paths with you on our journey in experiencing and getting to enjoy the amazing path of Adam Lambert the music star. It is ride I am glad to be a small part of and I am thoroughly enjoying witnessing his path as he comes into his own discovering his potential. I love it! ( you know I got to stop reading “Novel writing for Dummies” its spilling over into my post). :lol:

  • turquoisewaters

    onenineeight: thank you for posting. I hope there are many cases like yourself out there that are willing to give this EP a try. We would certainly welcome you as a NEW Adam fan:)

  • spiffysmile

    Finally, my order for my free calendar has been fulfilled. Tracking puts it at my house on 12/10. Spiff! Spiff!

  • music woman

    This has probably been posted here earlier, only went back 2 pages — LOL Adam’s threads always are huge. I just read Lyndsey Parker’s review of Adam’s EP. Ohhhhh I just love how she describes the EP — what a glowing loving review:

    http://new.music.yahoo.com/blogs/realityrocks/409301/the-acoustic-live-ep-adam-lamberts-new-unplug-in-baby/

    I ordered (physical) one from A.O. a while back so I am anxiously awaiting the arrival in the mail ……

  • smeggingnuts

    Adam moved back to #7 after passing the Burlesque soundtrack. What’s cool is even though the EP had dropped from #6 to #8 yesterday is wasn’t because it dropped in sales it just got passed by 2 other CD’s so I think its still selling very strong.

  • lorismile

    Mad World is from staten Island? I love this version. I was at that show. I was bitching we only got MW for an encore. I’ll try to make sure never to bitch again. LMAO

    I always thought Rockstar Weekly was like the Examiner. I’ve stopped reading them a long time ago.

  • Studio57

    I am sure new music Tuesday will make Adam drop a little. TI and Deadmau5 passed him already. I hope he can stay in the top 10, because to me that visibility is better than the ad tile ( hehe, I thought it was a banner too,Dhunken, albeit a small one).

    Noticed Crystal has a banner in pop, but again, if it isn’t on the front page I think it’s kind of wasted.

  • http://www.comcast.net KAT80

    Just checked and Adam was #6 overall and #2 Pop – I hope it can hold its position. I think it will if more and more people hear how beautiful and emotional Adam sings these tracks.

  • vjb475

    Right now he is at #6 again.

  • mmb

    When did acoustic live hit #2 on iTunes????!!! It’s number 6 on my iPhone but number 2 on the iPhone store on my computer( which I think tends to be pretty slow). So it got up to 2 overnight????? Wow. Nice. But again if RCA doesn’t report physical sales this week the numbers aren’t gonna be all that exciting bc iTunes just doesn’t account for that many album sales. Still, love love the ep and great to see it do well

    Eta: nvm I was looking in pop on my computer. Overall on iPhone. I need coffee lol

  • luval

    So I’ve been outed at work about my 2011 GNAL obsession. The nurse that outed me has a couple of tunes on her iphone. But now since she’s found my “achilles heel”, I am at her mercy to do errands for her. If she needs me to do something, she will taunt me with “I’ll play a song for you if you………”.

  • http://brynmoor.home.mindspring.com redsetter10

    Does anyone know where Adam is these days? I was hoping that he would do a few talk shows since the release of his EP and his Grammy nomination. Has anyone heard anything?

  • luval

  • Studio57

    This has done so much better than I thought it would. The fact that it is still climbing instead of a fast rise and fall is encouraging, but I still wish they would have shipped to stores.

  • Ceddies

    Adam moved back to #7 after passing the Burlesque soundtrack.

    I went to see Burlesque this past weekend. These two women, Cher and Christina are amazing individuals to me (speaking in general). Cher has always been one of my favorites because she is one of those peeps like Adam—”I will show you who I am” kind of people. Christina, well, we’re finding out that she is also that way. I couldn’t help thinking all way thru the movie how Adam so much wants to sing with Christina. Her voice combined with her dancing really impressed me—her acting, just okay. I know that these two are among Adam’s favorites, so I didn’t want to miss the movie. It’s strange how he makes us want to check out other artists—even to share that part of his ride with him. The soundtrack does feature other artists as well, though. I’m so thankful that Adam has made it past this soundtrack. Would love to see him in the #1 spot.

    ETA: Wow, just went back and caught up with the thread. It already hit #1—at least in one category. Great for Adam!

  • jumpstart

    #5 overall

    Not an Adam fan, but very impressive. Good to see AI alumni selling!

  • smeggingnuts

    I can’t believe that after the influx of new music for Tuesday that not only didn’t Adam drop he moved up…….wow

  • JazzRocks

    WhooHoo for #1 on I-Tunes US Pop!! Go Baby Go!!

  • cwm

    I just made a playlist and burned a very sweet live acoustic Adam CD that I’m really happy with:

    -Mad World (Regis and Kelly) (2 Mad Worlds — go figure; but they’re really different and both really great)
    -Tracks of My Tears (Ford Company Day)
    -Starlight (Good Morning America)
    -WWFM (Acoustic Live!)
    -Music Again (Acoustic Live!)
    -Sleepwalker (Blick.ch Switzerland)
    -Aftermath (Acoustic Live!)
    -Soaked (Acoustic Live!)
    -Broken Open (GNT Tokyo)
    -Mad World (Acoustic Live!)
    -Whole Lotta Love (GNT Louisville — I love this performance)

    Now I can’t wait to drive to work so that I can listen to it! :-)

  • dhunken

    So impressed that Acoustic live has moved up on Overall charts to #5. Even with the Holiday music and new releases it is doing very respectable. Though we really will never know I think if they did put physical CD in store it would do very very well. Its a great stocking stuffer. Many who may not like FYE the album will like Acoustic Live. IMHO

    Smeggs agree with your post.

  • k_in_cal

    I know a lot of people here have talked about not knowing where to hang their calendar because of teenage eye rolls. Lucky for me, I don’t have to worry about that (or maybe I just don’t care). I lovingly placed hung my calendar in my kitchen. It’s right next to the door so everytime I leave my house, I get to see that beautiful face. Which in turn puts a smile on my face. Funny thing is…so far, not one of my kids has even noticed. Not even my 17 year old who is a BIG fan of Adam’s. I’m now taking wagers on how long before someone notices the calendar. LOL! Oh and another thing…I’m a July baby and I’m loving my B’day month pic! Yay for me!!

  • Ceddies

    Good for you k-in-cal. My calendar is also going in my kitchen. My mom has a large kitchen; so when I moved in to take care of her, I took a corner of it for my small office and my treadmill. Works perfectly. Only grump will be my brother who comes by often. He once jokingly threatened to bring his pistol on his next visit so he could get rid of the desktop pic of Adam. He’d better not try anything with my calendar (LOL), cause I will surely, immediately miss it if he took it away from the spot I have picked out which is right in front of me when I am on the computer or the treadmill.

  • kradamour

    cwm what a great list! Imitation is the greatest flattery and I think that I am going to flatter you in a few minutes LOL…

    So tickled about the two posts from people who are not Adam fans but gave it a listen/try. I think this EP could go far to overcome reservations that many people have.

    And we heard somewhere that Adam planned to come back to the US through Philly, so I am assuming that he is going straight from Paris to Philadelphia for the Jingle Ball. I was in Philly airport a few days ago thinking how amazing it would be if he came through a couple of days early and … ah, it was an awesome fantasy!
    BTW there is a painting at the airport done by a formerly homeless person, it includes peacock feathers and is covered in glitter, called “Terrestrial Life”, it would make Adam smile if he sees it LOL.

  • luval

    Just picked up USA Today…Pick of the Week by the music critic Jerry Shriver:

    Mad World: Adam Lambert.
    Though this version of a song he made famous on American Idol comes from the new five-track Acoustic Live! album, there’s no shortage of electricity or passion. The tale of wanting to escape from a meaningless existence sounds even more urgent as Lambert attacks his acoustic guitar and gives full-throat to that dramatic tenor voice.

    Great review! although the picture sucked.

  • kradamour

    ceddies what a great idea to put the calendar in front of the treadmill! My exercise bike is in the basement where no one would bother me, and I finally have a location for the calendar. I can def see myself setting new records for exercise times. Thank you!

    And is it not RIDICULOUS that we even need to have these situations.

  • smeggingnuts

    I think Adam might lose his #5 spot the new Hinder album is shooting up the chart.

  • luval

    I’ve never heard of half these people/groups that are selling or nominated for grammy… Hinder??

  • smeggingnuts

    Luval
    I was talking about iTunes overall album chart. Hinder is a rock band they are good.

  • Planet Fierce

    Back in Florida from my trip to Nawlins and find that you all have been very busy. I watched the Grammy noms and was thinking he wasn’t nominated, then up early to catch my flight and it wasn’t until late Thursday I was able to pop on MJ’s to lurk at minute and WOW it was “Grammy Nominated Singer Adam Lambert” all over the place and I can not tell you how happy I was. I hadn’t had a minute to see any news so I was clueless, what a great surprise!!!! Then the EP is released and the BSC has hit the fan for it, lol!!!! ITA that this will be more widely accepted and enjoyed and will give mainstream America a legitimate vehicle (in their minds anyway) to purchase and enjoy his talent. IT’S ALL GOOD!!!!!

    Last, but not least, I am attending the Jingle Ball on Saturday, so excited!!!!!! GO ADAM!!!!!!!

  • Ceddies

    Hey, Planet, glad you’re back. Hope you had a wonderful time in NOLA. I’m so happy for you going to the Jingle Ball. You so richly deserve to do this. You know, though, that places a responsibility for a recap squarely on your shoulders. What a treat that should be for you to relive it while going back thru your experience and for you to give us another thrill for one of our own.

  • nkd

    De-lurking here. I am an Adam fan. Many thanks to all of you here for so many laughs over the past months since I found you.

    It was slow day at work yesterday, a couple of coworkers and myself were talking music, and sampling from our ipods. I said that I love this guy Adam Lambert, and one said “who”? Can you imagine?!
    So I played for her Acoustic Live! WWFM. She immediately looked him up on itunes and purchased the EP. She was also then looking into FYE. I was so proud!
    I really think that these acoustic versions of his songs (which we have all heard and loved for some time) will expand his exposure to many others. His voice and the way he uses it, is what drew most of us to him.
    And yes, while I’m waiting for my cd to arrive, I purchased the EP from I tunes just after midnight.

  • Studio57

    luval- Hinder sang Lips Of An Angel. All their other songs? See: Daughtry, Nickelback, Theory Of A Deadman :)

    It will be my pleasure! Warning though, based on the line up, I may not stay for the whole concert. I think Katy Perry is first, then Adam, and then their are at most 3 others I am interested in, after that we will probably take off. But I know we are really only interested in just one performer, so I will be happy to oblige.

    This is such a great day!!!!! Yay for GNAL! Yay for Acoustic Live!

    Two questions — (wish I could figure out how to blockquote properly)– Planet Fierce, you mention the line-up for the FL Jingle Ball. How did you find that out? I’m going to the Philly JB and can’t get there until after it starts. I assumed Adam would be one of the later performers, but maybe not? How can I find out?

    Also, I know that others, like me, didn’t place an order for the physical cd on AO before they sold out. I downloaded on Itunes but I’m REALLY, really wanting that cd. Kicking myself for not ordering sooner. Why isn’t AO taking orders for the 2nd edition yet?? Can’t they take preorders and ship when it’s ready? SO frustrated about this!! Kinda wanted a poster too…:(

    Fianlly…(I keep accidentally making the same typo Adam did, haha)…Ceddies, you mentioned seeing Christina A. in Burlesque. I just recently saw this (from the 2006? Martin Scorcese film “Shine a Light”) — it’s Christina singing with Mick Jagger, and I can totally see her doing something with Adam, as he’s said he wants to…

    Well so far, Adam is holding off Hinder. Adam’s still at #5, Hinder at #6. Too bad Daft Punk and TI came out of nowhere yesterday with new releases that leapfrogged above Adam. I love watching this — it brings out my competitive spirit. Go Adam!

    Ok, true confession. I bought my copy of Acoustic from AO and then, today, downloaded it off of I-tunes. I waited to listen as I figured I had heard it all anyways. OMG OMG OMG. If you have watched all the video and gone to a few concerts, don’t let yourself be fooled into thinking that you’ve heard everything on this EP already. The sound is unbelievable. And, the band is miked beautifully. His pure vocals just reverberate in your brain. I am just blown away. You have got to get this album, seriously. I know, I know –preaching to the choir.

    I see Jesse McCartney will be at the jingle ball tomorrow night. Although he is only about 23 yrs old, he’s been around. He co-wrote Bleeding love with Ryan Tedder for Leona Lewis. I’m mentioning this because in an interview earlier this year, he couldn’t stop raving about Adam and his voice and wanted to write something with Adam or for Adam. He’s pretty talented…tv..movies and of course music. Wish I could find the interview.

    If any teenage boys or college age young men can’t take a beautiful man in the office, the heck with ‘em! My Adam calendar is the equivalent of my having a Sports Illustrated calendar. Why can’t mama have a little eye candy? And, he’s got clothes on in every picture too! ( Damn ).

    Umm, hmmm, albums… :)

  • Oksana2000

    Yes, albums….what did YOU have in mind, ha? :-D

  • milwlovesadam

    Oh, Oksana, not gonna say it out loud.

    Shhhh, I’m listening to my EP download, blissing out.. WWFM……

  • Oksana2000
  • cwm

    Well I listened to the Acoustic Live tracks in my car for the first time today — so this was the first time I’d heard them through a good sound system with the volume up. OH.MY.GOD! I was floored. Absolutely octoberly exquisite, especially Soaked.

    Thank you Adam (and RCA) for making me so happy, yet again. :-)

  • nkd

    Oksana and Mils(if I may), you two crack me up! My mind went with Mils on that “top” comment. I know I’m new to ya’ll here, but just throw me in with the dirty-minded peeps.
    And you know if that doll was an “Adam” doll, we would all be buying it!!

  • Oksana2000

    nkd, this is all fault of Mils dirty mind. I am totally innocent as everybody here knows …. :evil:

  • milwlovesadam

    I’m actually afraid to drive with this in my car. I may end up late for work, side-lined and distracted, blissed out, too mellow to work.

    I may need to stick to my CD of WLL’s and arrive at work in a much different condition.

  • milwlovesadam

    I would like to add to this EP.

    Could somebody help with a good Broken Open MP3?

    And, does anyone have the good HD MP3 of WLL/PH from Paris, Cologne, Amsterdam?

    One more, was there ever an HD of WLL from San Fransisco 2?

    I lied, looking for a good HD, TCB too.

    More lies, need the acoustic Sleepwalker from the same session as Music Again. Does anybody have it?

  • TexasWannaHoldEm

    If any teenage boys or college age young men can’t take a beautiful man in the office, the heck with ‘em! My Adam calendar is the equivalent of my having a Sports Illustrated calendar. Why can’t mama have a little eye candy?

    mils, I’m in the same boat as you are. The way I look at it, we better use it or lose it. Just because we have eyeball-rollin’ teenagers, why shouldn’t we have a little fun? We only live once, right? I’ve decided to hang my calendar proudly in the laundry room! Don’t assume I’ve taken the high road – the laundry room is one of the most visited rooms in the house (right after the “feeding room”, lol). Since I spend alot of time in there and no other room really works for the calendar, there it goes. Trust me – I’ll never forget to change the month. :)

  • cwm

    Ok, mils, here’s what I got:

    Broken Open from GNT Tokyo: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=agFAO-nnqAk

    Purple Haze, Cologne, Improved: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IE7I0kVI5vg

    Whole Lotta Love, Cologne, Improved: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S5W0X6gPnBA

    Purple Haze, Amsterdam, Improved audio: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-_xLeL8p2yg

    WLL, Amsterdam, Improved audio: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w15GXNajjWM

    TCB, Providence, improved: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jpxLjwTn-eE

    Don’t know about an HD PH/WLL out of Paris.

    Now, you’ll note that these are youtubes, not mp3s. I don’t have an account for posting mp3s like smeggs does, BUT you can EASILY make your own mp3s by going to any one of these online tools:

    http://www.video2mp3.net/
    http://www.onlinevideoconverter.com/
    (there’s another good one too, but I can’t remember the name right now. I have it bookmarked on my other computer, so could post it later.)

    You simply paste the URL for the youtube into the text box, ask for the type of conversion you want, and then download the conversion. Easy as pie! :-) Good luck!

    ETA: I see that some of the “Improved” versions have links to mp3s already embedded in them, in the description section. :-)

  • milwlovesadam

    cwm. You are my hero. I will put one of my eyeball rollers to work on it ASAP. He needs to “earn” some more Hanukkah gifts. Thank you so so so so so much!! {{{ clapping and bowing }}}

    Can you get me the Sleepwalker acoustic from the same session as Music Again on the EP? If you could I would also curtsy for you, my queen.

    Texas, you are cracking me up! I might join you in the laundry room. It’s a very popular place in my house too!! For me!

    My office has become a repository for older baby pictures of my kids, I can’t imagine my Adam calendar nestled amongst the kiddies hugging teddy bears and such!! I would need to re-decorate my office. Hmmm, maybe that would be a good “reason” to hang my calendar there!

  • kradamour

    dayum…just downloaded Picasa to my new computer and had it look for pictures on my hard drives…and it found…um…billions a few pix of Adam. Had no idea there were so many. The rest of the evening will be a lot of work will be thoroughly enjoyable while I sort them into folders…

  • cwm

    Awww thanks Mils.

    Re: Sleepwalker, Blick.ch Switzerland, ask and ye shall receive. Here is a direct link to an “improved” mp3 download: http://tiny.cc/lloah

    ETA: I just realized that you asked for the same session as Music Again on Acoustic Live. That’s listed as “Hit Radio FFH.” Honestly don’t know whether that’s the same as Blick.ch or not. I’m not aware of a Sleepwalker on “Hit Radio FFH,” and a quick search on YT doesn’t turn anything up.

    There are a couple of Sleepwalkers from Germany — Here it is from “SWR3 Radio” in Germany. Maybe that’s it?? This youtube combines WWFM and SW, though. Maybe your eyerollers can separate them.

    Personally, I’d just go with the Blick.ch Switzerland version. It’s a good one, with good audio quality.

    :-)

  • lorismile

    CWM Thank you!!!! I love that Sleepwalker so much!!

    WWFM acoustic is #192 overall on ITunes and all 5 songs are in the top 300 in POP. :-) May not be much but I’ll take it!!

  • cwm

    You’re welcome lorismile!

    mils (and anyone else) — if you’re interested in a really great acoustic playlist/CD, I put together a playlist this morning that I’m really happy with. Posted at 10:56am today — one page back.

    I can post the youtubes for any of those if you wish.

    That Sleepwalker Blick.ch mp3 comes to us courtesy of Indybeck. She’s the one who associated that nice pic with the mp3 to give it the look of an album cover.

I’m going to the Philly JB and can’t get there until after it starts. I assumed Adam would be one of the later performers, but maybe not? How can I find out?

    I went to the radio stations website. Can’t be sure as to accuracy and things change at the last minute, but that’s where I got my info. Good luck!!!

    I have a question for the Itunes/computer experts. I tried to download the EP on my laptop and could not get it to work for the life of me. Hubby went to his laptop, opened a new account, and bought the EP. he did something to share with all the computers in the house. Except that when I go to my laptop it doesn’t show up on my list so I can only listen from hubby’s computer. So is the only way I can have my own copy is to burn it? Gosh, sometimes I want to pull my hair out by its graying roots when this computer stuff doesn’t work how I want it to. Does anyone understand what I’m talking about? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Gosh, sometimes I want to pull my hair out by its graying roots when this computer stuff doesn’t work how I want it to. Does anyone understand what I’m talking about? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Okay, let me try a couple of ideas with you. First, just because hubby has his itunes set up to share doesn’t mean that you go to another computer and it is automatically there. He needs to burn the songs to a CD and you need to open itunes on your laptop and upload them and then you can sync them to your ipod or whatever.

    Back to you trying to download them. Let me tell you what I had to do and see if this is of any help. When you download, you need to “SAVE” the files not open them (very important). I save to my desktop (my preference) or click and drag to my desktop if they end up somewhere else like mine did (thank ou google chrome). Then I go to itunes, click file, then click add file to library, and then upload from my desktop each song, voila!!!! Hope this helps.

  • smeggingnuts

    You could always put the mp3′s on a USB drive then put it on ur laptop that way. Sorry I don’t understand iTunes

Then I go to itunes, click file, then click add file to library, and then upload from my desktop each song, voila!!!! Hope this helps.

    Just want to add my 2 cents. This is the way to do it. Always save it to your computer desktop. Now Hypothetically you then can send the song via e-mail to whom ever you want and then they can upload it to their Itunes. Now if you don’t have Itunes you need to save it as an MP3. Itunes is not MP3 format that is why songs from Itunes sometimes wont play with a software that is not Itues compatible. I hope this helps a bit. There is more that can be done if you have not saved a song you want to your computer and it is only in Itunes. Then you do have to burn it on a disc then copy that to your desk top then up load it to the device you want it on. All this is purely Hypothetically. :-)

    There is another way to duplicate you music in itunes and then drag it to the desktop. You would need to go to you finder window then Your user, Music, Itunes Folder, then Itunes music and in that folder S/B all you songs form there Copy the songs you want then drag them to desktop then e-mail them Hypothetically. :mrgreen: I hope you can follow what I am saying

    CWM has another good Hypothetically idea that should work too. ;-) in Theory that is not that anyone of us would do this or suggest that anyone else should do this either. It all pretend. :D !

  • cwm

    apal123 — ok here’s another option for copying the EP from your husbands itunes to yours, in addition to Planet Fierce’s and smeggs’ suggestions.

    If your husband’s itunes is set up to share with others in the household, then you need to have your computer read his “library.” Make sure that his computer is on and his itunes is open. Then open your itunes on your computer. In the left panel of YOUR itunes screen, you should see “SHARED” and “xxxx’s [your husband's] Library” under that. Click on “xxxx’s Library” and it will bring up your husband’s library onto your computer screen. You can ask it to show all of his items, or only the items in his library that you don’t have in your library by clicking on “Show: All items” at the bottom of the itunes screen and choosing “All items” or “Items not in my library.” From the list of songs in his library showing on your screen, choose the songs you want to load into your library, click on them so they are highlighted, and then drag them over to the “LIBRARY” heading at the TOP of the left panel on your itunes screen. This is YOUR library. Essentially, you are copying songs from his library into your library.

    Hopefully this will work for you. Good luck!

    I tried clicking “blockquote,” then pasting the text, then clicking “blockquote” again…how do I add my comment separately after that? It keeps coming out included in the blockquote…UGH! I like to think that I’m semi-intelligent, but this isn’t helping! LOL :D

  • cwm

    kepilynn– just make sure that your new comment text comes AFTER the code that ends the blockquote ( “/[bracket]blockquote[bracket]” ).

    Personally, I find it easiest to copy and paste the quote into the box, highlight the text that I want to blockquote, and then click the b-quote button once. This will automatically surround your quote with the start-blockquote and end-blockquote codes.

    Then it’s really easy to add your own comments, AFTER the end-blockquote code. :-)

    Luval, I live in the Chicago area and we had snow all day Saturday but then it shifted to the other side of the lake and those poor folks have been getting hammered for 4 days now with lake effect snow and it will continue until the wind changes. They are kinda like Buffalo NY when it comes to snow. It always amazes me that you can go a few miles and things are so totally different.

    I go to 24/7 too but I just wonder where people find things from RCAEd on AO – I never have been able to yet although I don’t go there unless it’s to order something like the EP.

    He’s the guy on AO who occasionally posts comments – he made comments yesterday about the next “limited” release of the EP and also about the concert DVD.

    I don’t know where this is located at AO, though. The “Source” link on 24/7 for this post is broken. My guess is that it’s somewhere in the forums. I never wade into AO myself except to buy something. Too complicated, too crazy there. I figure if there’s something important said, it will show up here or on 24/7.

    luval — RCAEd is the RCA official who moderates AO. He occasionally posts to answer questions about RCA plans, releases, etc. Sometimes he might be a little too, shall we say, candid, but I appreciate his honest take on things.

Nice to see that progress.

    OT, but does anyone else here use Yahoo email? Yesterday and today when I try to send a mail, an anti-spam box comes up with the coded letters (you know, like “XERy2M4″) and I have to enter that. When I enter it, they put up another one and say I entered the first one incorrectly. Same thing happens again and again. Have tried to enter up to 4 codes before giving up on the email. The emails are just 2-3 liners like hi, how ya doin, etc, just regular emails to individuals–nothing crazy.

    Is anyone else having this problem? Please, someone answer?????

    My yahoo email does that sometimes. Just have to wait it out.

    Ceddies, I gave up on gmail and Yahoo e-mail ages ago. Wasn’t very happy with them.

  • Ceddies

    Thanks jlurksacto and Oksana. Maybe tomorrow, then. I’ve never had problems with Yahoo in over four years, and I don’t really like gmail (don’t really know why I don’t like it, just don’t). Thanks for answering. Now I won’t think it’s something with my laptop.

    Thanks for doing the Jingle Ball thread renata! Do you know when Adam is coming on in the lineup?

    Word on twitter is that he is 2nd to last. But we´ll only know for sure later on.

  • luval

    The last couple of days I’ve noticed in USA Today they have been announcing New Years Eve performers. Dick Clark’s Rockin’ eve with Ryan Seacrest and Fox New Years eve….no Adam on either one.

  • Planet Fierce

    I wonder if he has any “private” performances coming up. He did say they pay VERY well.

  • luval

    Can’t edit for some reason. My last post is stupid because obviously we would know if Adam was a guest!

  • luval

    There was something on Access Hollywood I think last night about what people make for private performances. Actually, less than I thought. For example “The Situation” I think was around $40,000. I’m sure if we all banded together we could raise money for a 2011 GNAL private performance somewhere.

    Wasn’t Singapore gig “private” performance? As I recall it paid VERY well, indeed. :-)

  • Oksana2000

    I wouldn’t pay “the Situation” $40. But it’s me. luval, count me in for 2011 GNAL private performance…great idea.. :-D

    I received my calendar this morning. It is so beautiful!
    Not signed. It will be hanging inside my pantry door replacing my Monet calendar. My pantry door may have to remain open during all kitchen chores, however! Let’s hope I still have dishes by the end of 2011, and that I have not set the kitchen on fire from being distracted while cooking. As far as eye rolling, I’ve raised 3 daughters, I can handle a little eye rolling.
    52 degrees here outside, but my house warmed up quite a bit when Mr. October came in!

  • luval

    ok you guys, quit rubbing it in how mild the temperature is in your area… I’m talking to you nkd :-)

    On my way home in about a half hour to dig out my driveway…again. My calendar better be there or else.

  • nkd

    luval, as stated before, if your calendar made its way to your door today, a path will already have been burned! The heat surrounding the package will keep it cleared!
    But do drive safely on your way home.

  • smeggingnuts

    Have you guys seen this? News about the physical CD’s that doesn’t come from Ed.

    I wonder if the AO website (or whoever handles the CD sales) will be as good at sending out “your CD has shipped” emails as AO was at sending passwords for Glam Nation pre-sales! If that’s the case, I can expect an e-mail after the CD has arrived! :-)

    That was so funny! Adam looked as though he ran out of things to say and had time to kill and just went for it – LOL! Boy is totally the gift that keeps on giving… :)

  • asifclueless

    LOL !! Yeah, krad. He’s so adorable. :)

  • cwm

    Thanks for posting the youtube link, asifclueless. Adam’s growl at the end is a crack up.

    So, what do we think Adam will do today at the Jingle Ball? We know he doesn’t have his dancers with him (per Terrance’s tweet). :-( So, how much time will he have, how many songs, what songs, and what costume (a Glam Nation outfit or not)??

    I’m guessing approximately 20-40 minutes (depending on where he is in the line up), and that he’ll do WWFM, IIHY, Sleepwalker, SFW, Aftermath, Fever, maybe Mad World, maybe Music Again, maybe Soaked. Not sure about the costume thing; I’ll guess a non-Glam Nation outfit.

    Other guesses?? :-)

  • smeggingnuts

    Well according to Warren Adam is second to last right before the Biebs. He will proably get 20-30 min set 5-6 songs maybe. I am kinda excited. As much as I love the dancers *cough*Dante*cough* I love watching Adam just rome the stage unscripted :D

  • smeggingnuts

    I don’t think Adam will sing Soaked he is going to try to keep it up tempo.
    My guesses are WWFM, Music Again, SFW, Strut/Fever, IIHY, and SW.

  • k_in_cal

    I myself can’t wait for the reviews…it should be quite interesting based on the lineup!

  • asifclueless

    You’re welcome, cwm.
    Isn’t he adorb? I love this guy. He makes me giggle like a teenager. :)

    As for his costume -anything but the GlamHammers. I don’t like those loose, big pants. I like the tight-fit ones to show off his long…and lean…umm..legs.

    I don’t know if the band had time to rehearse new songs. I’d like to hear songs that he hasn’t sung or sang it only once or twice.
    You know.. those songs, Master Plan, Pick You Up, TFM and my favs CLYG and A Loaded Smile.

    But I don’t think it’s gonna happen.

  • nkd

    I’m excited to see what Adam will wear. Guessing not Glamnation, but definitely glam! It’s all about the outfit! And the hair!
    Oh yes, I agree, no Glamhammers! ugh

  • luval

    omg…OT but Adam’s friend Katy Perry is singing Firework on Ellen. This song is too big for her. Her voice is quivering at the high notes. Sorry, Katy, that was not good.

  • k_in_cal

    asifclueless…I’m thinking/hoping he’s saving the good stuff for the final show in LA!!

  • asifclueless

    I’ve been busy watching this Enter Sandman from Auckland. Improved Version
    Lambosessed did a great job editing it. Good quality. It was just posted today.

  • http://legan0.tripod.com mama2dasha

    I was finally able to purchase the EP and made my own acoustic CD for the car. WOW..love all the songs but Mad World is somehow my favorite. Adam should release that version as a single. And I think the way he says/sings the word “dyin” in the second chorus is adorkable :)

    Oh, thank you cwm. I can tell there’s a lot of hair under that grey cap. I’ll try the copy/paste thing sometime.

    Here is the complete post on Idolator about Adam’s pick for his favorite song and album. They have some nice things to say about Adam in addition to the nice things he says about Sia.

    http://idolator.com/5711672/best-music-2010-adam-lambert

    Adam’s review of Sia’s work is very impressive to me. He obviously approaches it as an artist appraising another artist’s work. In his very detailed and articulate description of her work, you can tell that he is very attuned to vocal, musical, and lyrical nuances and how they convey authenticity of expression, depth of meaning, and emotional impact of the art. He comes across as someone who is very serious about his art and knows his stuff.

    I had never heard of Sia before Adam mentioned her. I appreciate how he is exposing me to new music. Her song that is his favorite (embedded in the article) is really interesting and kind of surprising. I wouldn’t have guessed that it would be his favorite song, so it’s interesting to hear him talk about what appeals to him and why.

  • kradamour

    (nods in agreement)

    I gave a lot of thought to what Adam likes/might like when I prepared the little flash drive of French music/vids that I gave him in Paris. Language was a barrier because it is apparent that he really cares about the lyrics (not only from this article but from other comments he has made about other music). It was frustrating to rule out songs/performers that I think he would have very much enjoyed if he understood French, but they were too lyric-centric.

  • rockdamama

    Flail. Downloaded EP days ago but first time to sit down, relax with a glass of wine, and turn up the volume. I love Adam. And I love all of MJ regulars who keep it interesting for us lurkers. We are blessed with many gifts this holiday season.
