  1. Musically it’s a gloriously tacky mix of dance pop and hair metal, and we mean that in the best way possible....The only problem is that he doesn’t go far enough, likely the result of the label trying to tone down his flamboyance.
  2. The songs sound great but feel strangely stuffy--Entertainment seems like a disc that was overthought.
  3. This is an overwrought, clunky, only sparingly entertaining record, constantly in argument with itself. Worse, 'For Your Entertainment' isn’t an ambitious flop, it’s a conservative one.

    Adam Lambert's debut album is aptly titled. Rarely do I buy full CDs, as I only like a few tracks as a rule. On FYE, I'm hard Adam Lambert's debut album is aptly titled. Rarely do I buy full CDs, as I only like a few tracks as a rule. On FYE, I'm hard pressed to even pick my favorite songs. There are only one or two that I don't love (Time for Miracles doesn't really fit with the vibe of the other songs) Lambert's vocals are incredible, and his dance tunes make great workout songs. This is a great album, and I highly recommend it. Full Review »
