Three years removed fromAmerican Idol,Adam Lambertis finally allowed to shake off the pageantry of the televised talent competition and dive into glitter on his second major-label album,Trespassing. There's a distinct lack of ballads onTrespassing-- they're clustered toward the end of the record, sometimes given a spangled once-over by producerDr. Lukeso they don't feel staid, sometimes hinting at the chilly, austere vistas ofRyan Tedderbut sounding grander, warmer in the hands ofLambert. Here, the distance from the stuffiness ofIdolis apparent but the heart ofTrespassinglies in the first two-thirds of the album, whenLambertis strutting like a glam-disco diva, sparring withDr. LukeandPharrell Williams, belting out his hooks with an easy confidence. And he's got some great hooks here, too: big, bright, insistent hooks powering songs that revel in their sleaziness.Lambertmatches their appeal, singing with an untrammeled joy suggesting that he's relishing an opportunity to make modern dance music.Williamsis his greatest foil -- "Trespassing" and theMichael Jackson-via-Justin Timberlake"Kickin' In" grab immediately -- but that's not to slight the rest of the record, particularly the pulsating Nile Rodgers-fueled funk "Shady" and mirror-plated pop of "Cuckoo." Even if these songs never grace the charts, they sound like inevitable hits and prove thatLambertis a genuine pop star who has now left American Idolfar behind.
