    Trespassing continues the work of the underrated "For Your Entertainment" and allows the singer to keep unveiling his character in broad, colorful strokes.

    Even if these songs never grace the charts, they sound like inevitable hits and prove that Lambert is a genuine pop star who has now left American Idol far behind.

    Trespassing delivers, with a mix of tinsel disco-club sleaze and leather-boy love ballads.

    The first half of Trespassing offers a smorgasbord of succulent up-tempo pop. There are a couple of derivative cuts, but the highlights are tasty enough to compensate.... The album's second half is less entertaining.

    If few of the songs are classics, his octave-leaping voice is often a showstopper.

    Trespassing isn't a totally cogent statement. Lambert suffers from a lack of restraint, while the second half of the album lags. But you have to admire Lambert's ability to go over the top and then ratchet higher still.

    Trespassing is magnificent is its competence, but sadly, it doesn't appear to have an actual beating heart in it anywhere. [Aug 2012, p.102]

    What really makes me a fan of this album is the fact that Lambert came out swinging on it. He proved he's much more than a one trick AmericanWhat really makes me a fan of this album is the fact that Lambert came out swinging on it. He proved he's much more than a one trick American Idol pony, and actually one of the shows most talented stars. His 2010 debut 'For Your Entertainment' wasn't bad at all, but it definitely felt like a quick AI rush fest, and it lacked some personality. Here we are in 2012 though, and Adam is bringing his personality front and center! You've got your sassy club stompers, your funky mid-tempos, and for the personality department, you've got some seriously stunning vocal and lyrical work on ballads 'Outlaws of Love', and 'Underneath'. This isn't a pop album to be missed. Expand

It takes you on a journey into the heart and soul of Adam Lambert, both the light side and the dark. Each song is uniquely different, yet all the songs hang together in a cohesive flow.

    It's a rare thing to like every song on an album, and even more rare to find a cohesive framework and well polished sound throughout.It's a rare thing to like every song on an album, and even more rare to find a cohesive framework and well polished sound throughout. Trespassing is one of those rare finds. The album's first half of funky fierce fun dance tracks is balanced by the dynamic and angsty second half, leaving you eager to go back and listen all over again. Expand
