    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]

    this is a technically skilled yet immensely enjoyable album, that spans an emotional spectrum as it brings the listener on its full circle ride. lambert's vocals are lush and sensuous and sensational; and the album's production, while clearly a factor in creating the vibe, supports the vocals in a seamless fashion. it spans sensibilities of new and old genres and tastes, truly one of kind blend of beats, voice and sonic innovation.

    I am more than happy with Trespassing and have listened to it non-stop since it's release date. Every song is well written, brilliantly produced and Adam's vocals make each and every song brilliant. I can honestly say I can't find any fault with this album at all. I think Trespassing is destined for great things in the near future and will one day be considered a musical masterpiece. I just don't understand how the so called critics can find any fault with this album I love it and everyone I know who has heard the songs love each and every one of them. Expand

    This album is everything I hoped it would be. The dance tracks make me want to shake my ass and the ballads make me want to weep. Perfect blend of emotion and delivery and Adam's voice is out of this world as usual. best album I've purchased all year. Expand

    I an so excited to have received my copy of Trespassing. Adam has exceeded all my expectations for this new cd. From the fun, dancy songs to the soft, heart-tugging songs, this cd is nothing but awesomeness. Adam's vocals are in a league of their own. Expand

    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

    The new album by Adam Lambert is what one would hear the sound going up in the car, the music issue! There is nothing beautiful Trespassing, but I must give credit to the team behind the album of Lambert. Those ui loved For Your Entertaiment will love and others forget it. Expand
