With just a little under a month to go until the May 15 release of Adam Lambert`s new album, Trespassing, fans can now try before they buy, as an album sampler makes its way around the internet. The sampler contains snippets of 10 out of 12 of the songs on the standard edition of the set; only the title-track (a live version of that can be heard here in full) and "Underneath" are left off.

After listening to the snippets, we feel pretty secure in saying that Adam has some prime property on his hands here. The songs dive into just about every genre you can think of, and every mood you can have. The set is mostly upbeat, with songs like "Shady," "Kickin' In" and "Naked Love" being instant standouts. But the slower numbers are far from shabby, especially since Adam really lets that powerful voice soar on songs like "Outlaws Of Love," "Better Than I Know Myself," and the ridiculously gorgeous "Broken English."

Updated: A snippet of "Underneath" has been added. WOW! That sums it up.

Cosmopolitan reviews: Adam Lambert 'Trespassing'

We at Cosmo were lucky enough to get a sneaky listen of Adam Lambert's hot new album, Tresspassing. It's not out until next month, but you know what Cosmo's like, we've got our fingers on the pulse.

Let's start off with saying 'Trespassing' is good, it's SO GOOD! Listening to it we immediately wanted to sing along (if only we knew the words!) with a hairbrush and jump around, perhaps with an air guitar for maximum effect.

As well as executively producing the album, Adam Lambert collaborated with a music-making dream team; Pharrell Williams, Claude Kelly, Dr.Luke, Bruno Mars to name just a few.

Hardcore Adam Lambert fans are going to LOVE it, but we think it's going to bring in a flurry of brand new fans, especially if you're into pop but it's 'Outlaws of Love' that will blow you away; it's haunting and dark but full of emotion.

Album Review: Adam Lambert - `Trespassing'

It's been a long time coming for Adam Lambert's Trespassing album release, but definitely worth the wait! Although originally slated to drop last November, Adam took an extra few months to go in a different, funkier direction and to fine-tune it to perfection. The result shows that he has succeeded in his quest. The album comes chock full of obvious hits, including funky, up-beat dance tunes that rival any pop songs currently topping the charts. There are also ballads that will have listeners near tears, with haunting lyrics and gut-wrenching, soulful cries. All of the songs are relatable, regardless of age, race, gender or sexuality.

Recently Adam described the album, saying, "It's been a transformative period and I really wanted to make music from what I've experienced. All these songs honestly explore the ups and downs of my reality." The songs do just that, including "ups" such as the partying and fun portrayed in Shady to the "downs" shown in his frustrations depicted in the lyrics of Outlaws of Love.

Fans have already heard snippets of all 15 songs on the Trespassing Deluxe Edition, however, the full tracks are even better, providing more funky electronic sounds and beautiful harmonies
Adam has reason to be proud of the album, as not only is he the Executive Producer, but he also co-wrote on 12 of the 15 tracks. Many heavy-hitters in the music industry were also involved, as Adam collaborated with an all-star list of award winning artists, producers and songwriters including Pharrell Williams, Claude Kelly, Benny Blanco, Bonnie McKee, Nile Rogers, Sam Sparro, Dr. Luke and Bruno Mars.

From Lyndsey Parker at Yahoo Music:

"On Trespassing, Adam has undoubtedly found his true (multi-octave) voice, gleefully and recklessly abandoning the throwback 'rock god' posturing that typified many of his 'Idol' performances and several of his first album's guitar-driven, Matt Bellamy- and Justin Hawkins-penned tracks...."

Judgement Day: Pop Heaven or Hell? Adam Lambert's "Trespassing" (A track by track review)

...In the next track, "Underneath," Adam has what could end up being the most breathtaking song of his career. Dark, emotional and atmospheric; it is a lyrical and sonic masterpiece in every way. ("Strip away the flesh and bone, look beyond the lies you've known, everybody wants to talk about a freak, no one wants to dig that deep, let me take you underneath...") Imagine that Richard Marx wrote a confessional song about his dark side in the vein of Madonna's "Ray of Light" album - then imagine it modern. One of the most haunting and beautiful songs, ever. Period....

REVIEW: Adam Lambert - Trespassing ~ Rating: 9/10
May 12th, 2012

Adam Lambert is one of the few artists who make reality talent shows seem worthwhile. In a sea of indentical, fleeting wannabes, he stood out even during his American Idol days as a talented and provocative artist and extravagant showman. This diligence and glamour has seeped into his music, which often represents the very best medley of his influences and which, more than anything, captures an infectious and jovial sense of fun. It is pop music and unashamedly so, but it's sophisticated pop music - lavish, thoughtful, sublimely executed, with exquisite attention to detail.

Lambert's phenomenal vocals in the past are, as always, the driving force behind this album. Trespassing is his second full-length release following 2009's For Your Entertainment and sources inspiration from 90s music, disco, electronica, and even a little bit of dubstep (enough to provoke but not to destroy). It's a consuming mixture of songs, all bright sparks and theatrical flourishes designed with maximum visual and aural stimulation in mind. Lambert's range allows him to dominate no matter what the song style - his voice an energetic thrust for the flamboyant tracks and a solid, powerful fulcrum for the slower songs. Indeed, it is marvellous to hear how he can take tricks and styles familiar to all in the trade and twist them so rambunctiously to fit his vision. Lambert is a showman above all else, and he provides a sumptuous, all-engrossing experience to go with his stunning voice.

1) Adam Lambert "Trespassing" The second studio album from "American Idol's" best singer ever tips in a dancier direction. Yet it's Lambert's vocal mix - of the awesome and the absurd - that makes it such a charming hoot.

From MUZU TV - It's always nice to see a good review from the UK ~ 4 out of 5 stars

Season 8 American Idol runner-up Adam Lambert hasn't done bad for himself in the years after the show. His debut album For Your Entertainment was certified platinum in the US, Australia, Canada and New Zealand and it cracked the Top 40 over here in the UK. Since then Lambert has teamed up with Queen for some live performances - he'll be performing with them in the UK this summer - and has been busy recording his second album Trespassing.

After a few listens through we're glad to see that Lambert has fixed some of the issues we had with his debut. For Your Entertainment, whilst being a solid pop album, was trying to be everything to everyone with a frenetic jump around the genres to cover all bases. Trespassing is a much more cohesive album that flows much better than his debut. On the record Lambert has worked with the cream of today's producers including Pharrell Williams, Dr Luke, Claude Kelly, Benny Blanco and Lester Mendez. Bruno Mars, Sam Sparro and Bonnie McKee have also contributed to the record.

Trespassing combines pop, rock and electronica and it feels like this if the first time we're actually getting to hear who Lambert is as a popstar; bold, daring and feisty. Opening track Trespassing borrows a We Will Rock You like intro before bass guitar and electric guitar riffs take over. Lambert's rock-tinged voice rips straight through the melody putting his stamp all over the track.

We're glad to see that the majority of the album stays away from the more MOR feel of buzz single Better Than I Know Myself. It's not that the track is bad, it certainly isn't, but he's covered that ground with Whataya Want From Me.

Lambert gets political and topical on Outlaws Of Love which feels particularly pertinent given the gay marriage debates currently going on across the world, heads for the dancefloor on the summer track Naked Love, and mashes rock with electro-pop on current US single (and UK lead single) Never Close Our Eyes which was penned by Bruno Mars. Cuckoo is a beat-driven radio-friendly dance track and Broken English adds a little dubstep into the mix for one of the album's most unique tracks.

The best moments come when Lambert throws the pop formula out of the window and does what he wants. Shady featuring Sam Sparro and Nile Rodgers is an early favourite as is the Pharrell produced Kickin' In which is perfect for the dancefloor. It's also what we imagine a Justin Timberlake/Michael Jackson mash-up sounds like sung by Lambert. We also have a soft spot for the energetic electro-squelch of Pop That Lock.

In terms of vocals it doesn't get any better than Lambert's vocal on Underneath. He rips every lyric from his soul and you hear the passion in his voice. It's without a doubt the finest vocal on the album and showcases just how gifted a singer he is.

Trespassing is the album that we always hoped that Lambert would make. It sounds like it's really his project rather than a mish-mash of other artists and is an early contender for our pop record of the year. There's enough material on here to give him a fighting chance of UK chart success and his shows with Queen this summer should bring him to more people's attention.

I really love reading comments like this in reviews of Trespassing:

"Trespassing" is the best pop release of the year, so even those who don't count themselves as his fans should at least give it a try.

A comment posted under one of the reviews:

"Average fare ( the norm on many albums) is when each song is a re-working of the last track, everything sounds the same, and nothing stands out. With Trespassing, it is difficult to pick a favorite track - there is something for your every mood, and something to move your every mood, your heart and your booty."

In case you couldn't get the link to work, here's what Jim Faber, chief music critic of the NY Daily News for the last 21 years, wrote TODAY:

Jim Farber's Top Ten in Music for Sunday, May 13, 2012

Adam Lambert, Santigold, Brendan Benson, Norah Jones, Willie Nelson and more

1) Adam Lambert "Trespassing" The second studio album from "American Idol's" best singer ever tips in a dancier direction. Yet it's Lambert's vocal mix - of the awesome and the absurd - that makes it such a charming hoot.

2) Santigold "Master of My Make-Believe" Anthemic choruses, new wave rock and undulating, dub bass lines give singer Santigold's second CD a blast of cool.

3) Brendan Benson "What Kind of World" Benson taps into the formality of '70s pop on his solo CDs. At times, this member of the Raconteurs sounds like Elton John channeling Leo Sayer.

4) Norah Jones "Little Broken Hearts" It's a whole new Norah Jones on her latest CD. Here, the earnest coquette turns sarcastic and angry - if tastefully so.

5) Chica Libre "Canibalismo" The campy, spy-rock of 1960s Peru (known as "Chica" music) finds a fresh voice in this band of non-Peruvians.

6) Willie Nelson "Heroes" On his nine-millionth CD, Mr. Nelson covers Coldplay and Tom Waits (well, too) along with delivering the expectedly wry country ballads.

7) Jack White "Blunderbuss" The first solo CD from the ex-White Stripes chief adds lots of keyboards and mixes in country and jazz with the expected garage-rock roar.

8) Theophilus London "Timez Are Weird These Days" Witty remixes of cuts from the Brit hip-hop's star's uber-catchy debut.

9) Radio Jarocho "Café Café" This New York based band mine flinty traditional Mexican jarocho music, then fracture it through a modern sensibility of their own.

10) World Party "Arkeology" These five (!) CDs taken from Karl Wallinger's deep catalogue offer a master class in pop songcraft.
