Adam Lambert

Glam Nation Live [Three stars] 19 Recordings/RCA


  Share

Moving at a frantic pace that befits its subject, this 67-minute CD-DVD set captures Lambert on his first solo tour, showing off his sometimes uneasy, often triumphant hybrid of glam rock, Broadway and dance pop. At first there are so many prerecorded backgrounds that his singing seems barely live. Barefoot and overdressed, this Mad Hatter changes costumes often while guitarist Monte Pittman shreds. But after racing through ‘Ring of Fire’ and ‘Whataya Want From Me,’ Lambert finds his groove, showing off his theatrical training on heavily choreographed numbers like ‘Strut.’ He often comes across like an actor playing a rocker rather than the real thing, but Lambert’s charisma and considerable chops compensate for his lingering staginess.
