Excerpts from the awesome review! Read MORE at the link above....

Singer Adam Lambert must have one of the toughest jobs in the modern music world - standing in for the late Freddie Mercury of the British band Queen, who is widely regarded as one of the most dynamic frontmen in the history of rock 'n' roll.

But as his performance at British rock icons Queen's gig here at the Singapore Grand Prix last Saturday would attest, the former American Idol finalist can hold his own in the situation.

Brimming with confidence, 34- year-old Lambert, who first performed with the Queen members who are still alive and playing with the band - Brian May and Roger Taylor - in 2009, seemed very much aware that there was no point in trying to emulate Mercury's moves and singular singing style. He could reach Mercury's incredibly wide vocal range with ease and, in songs like Somebody To Love, delivered the high notes more smoothly than the late singer did.

Well, that's a great review! Adam is sounding as powerful as ever. Love the line about Adam delivering those high notes more smoothly then "you know who," but as it's been said many times, Freddie was Freddie, Adam is Adam. Both brilliantly talented. Two different people.

It's kind of remarkable that Queen has had the good fortune to have the two greatest frontmen in the world. What an amazing career!

I have thought that Adam as always wanted to be remembered for his voice, well there is no doubt he will be!! What better way to showcase his intensely beautiful voice than side by side to Freddie Mercury's.....In the following years this will become quiet clear. The masses may remember the Beliebers, Swifties or Bey Hive but they'll only be remembered as popular. There are many great artist who are really good at entertaining, you can't take that away from them but Adam's legacy will endure as being one of the greatest voices of all time. Not unlike Barbara Streistrand's voice, no arguing she has an amazingly beautiful voice or Celine Deion. There stands very few vocalist in that hemisphere. An attestment to Adam's vocal quality and strength is his ability to not only be his own voice but carry on as Queen's frontman, a place that has both attracted and scared many a singer, where all have done ok, Adam has done just amazingly awesome.....something that is to be admired.

One of the beautiful things I see with Brian and Rodger having Adam front and center is how a lot of people are becoming aware of just how very difficult their catalog really is. It has people realizing just how good Queen was and is. They have always been brilliant and ahead of their time! Some are just now joining the party and that's very much due to Adam's involvement. It has been amazing watching these men breath life back to their music with Adam at the helm. I feel blessed to be able to witness not only this but to be able to see, listen and feel Adam's voice in his prime. Music has been a large part of my life from a little girl on, I've been to many a concerts and seen bad, good and really good performers however, Adam is hands down THE best vocalist live or recorded I've have heard and I don't think he'll be slowing down anytime soon. This girl is very grateful to be able to be part this amazing, beautiful, charismatic mans journey as he shares his insanely gifted voice with us. Adam has the ability to change life's with his voice and that is one of God's greatest gifts......Thank you and bless you Adam

Ditto to all you said above... Adam's voice is one for the ages, and has already joined the list of greats.. His story and his accomplishments will become the stuff of legend. So thankful to be a witness to his talent.

Nanbert said...

Agreed...beautifully written and on point. No one has said it better. Queen and Adam, together, have shown the world how brilliant EACH is-- merging their amazing talents to make a "sum greater than its parts"-- magnificent, monumental -- each magnifying the other's contribution and showcasing ALL their jewels.

Without Adam's voice now, Queen's would be silent. Yes, there are recordings, but their brilliance needs to be witnessed ALIVE-- just as Adam's-- to be stupifyingly believable, alive, mind-bendingly authentic, and UNEQUALLED!

This is a one of a kind, once in a lifetime experience. Its like will probably never be seen again. We are so lucky to be witnesses! Life seems richer. For the ages, indeed... icons, legends!

ICU2, Perfectly said! Like you, I feel so lucky to be here to witness Adam's growing career. He is really one in a billion. To be paired with a legendary band like Queen is lucky for him, but it's also a testament to his amazing talent. Brian and Roger did HAVE to ask him to join the band. They knew he was THE ONE and made the offer knowing they could trust him to make them once again fill arenas world-wide. I hope Adam gets added to Queen's display at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. (Queen HAS been inducted, haven't they? If they haven't they should be, and Adam must be added to their display.) It's a very cool place, BTW. If you've never visited it, please try to.

The only thing that makes me sad is that we will probably NEVER have the "Queen and Adam Lambert" music memorialized in an album. Unless Queen decides to make a DVD, or DVD's of these concerts, there will be no permanent official record of QAL--- except for a rapidly diminishing number of videos on Youtube and the dimming memories of those of us...who still remember.

Then, some day, it could be....POOF!...."Queen and Adam Lambert" never existed, except possibly in an occasional footnote somewhere, or a rare youtube video. There will be NO proof, no permanent quality album to cherish and hold in our hand and pass down to our kids.
