"For Your Entertainment" is slated to hit U.S. market on November 23, facing off Rihanna's "Rated R" and Lady GaGa's 'The Fame: Monster. Led by its title track, the album is described by Adam as a mix of "guitar, live drums [and] a real rock sound."

    Wow! It sure sounds as if Adam knows what he's doing -- with a little help from his friends, of course. I can't understand why some are complaining that this isn't _____________ (fill in the blank - a reincarnation of AI songs, more rock, more ballads, etc.) If they had paid attention, they would have heard Adam say he was going in a different direction ... It's obvious that e does NOT stay in one place very long, judging from his pre-Idol musical life: show songs, cabaret, electro-pop, rock (with Citizen Vein). He seems driven to 'keep pushing the boundaries' -- and, isn't that what we admired about him from the beginning?!?

    Seriously siiiiiick album just like Adam said! I cannot wait to get my hands on this cd! Such a variety yet all great! All Adam! So glad he is doing his music, his way! I will buy anything this awesome singer puts out! Love, love, love his music and him! P.S. why people have to say negative things is beyond me - didn't your mother ever tell you if you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all? too much negativity in the world! just saying... Glad Adam is putting out his music which makes my world happy, happy, happy!

    Some of those ballads sound like they will really showcase his voice. The others--full of energy. I wonder if people are going to overanalyze his music instead of just enjoying it. Do other artists get such scrutiny or is it because he is new on the scene?

    the AI live stage and the real world live stage are 2 very different things. I pray he doesn't start doing that gyrating head-rolling nonsense he did on the Idol tour in front of seasoned artists at the AMA's. Adam, please hire a choreographer!!!

    This cd will sell to people who support pop music. This cd will disappoint those of us who want unprocessed, raw, soulful music where the artist is the artist, not the bleeps and sounds that surround him/her. I hope future albums will in fact embrace more of that rocker edge. This stuff sounds too much like Lady Gag Gag and Britney mixed together. Sad, sad sad.

    I don't like any of the tracks. The music is so loud you can hardly understand what he's saying. Most of the songs they all sound alike and just a lot of screaming. Why? Why all the screaming.

    I do not understand why someone would make a harsh comment on Adam's album. Are you guys really critizing his sounds or you just want to say something bad because you are haters. If you have clean ears, you would know what good music are. His album is one of the best and gold is written all over it; even radio talk shows agree with me

    I fell in love with every track except If I Had You immediately. I will wait and hear that one in it's entirety when I get the cd. I loved Soaked, Fever, Whataya Want From Me?, Broken Open, and Aftermath the best so far, but that's just from the snippets. It's really amazing when you have a cd and you don't have to push the skip button for any tracks. Adam rules!!!

    Overproduced electropoop! What in the world happened to our Adam, the rock star? This type of music is trash. What a colossal waste of a tremendous talent.

    I'm sure glad I got to hear Adam's clips a few times last nite - cuz they're gone now :( I was hoping to listen to them a few times a day until the 23rd - so I could be totally familiar with the sounds when my CD arrives. So sad.

    If you can't find them you can go on Youtube to "For Your Entertainment Snipets" and scroll down. Or the Amazon UK site.

    I have listen to the snipets since yesterday (when does that ever happen??) I have to say this album is KILLER!! It is ecletic covering 70's, 80's, and also some current stuff , rock and ballads - They are all tied together by one magical cord - Adam's voice!! IT is Epic!!!

    Where are the guitars, the drums, the Rock and Roll? Not here. Where's the guy who can sing 'Ring of Fire''A change is Gonna Come''Life on Mars'? This cd is major disappointment because Adam is far better than this music. Fever, Soaked, Time For Miracles,For Your Entertainment,A Loaded Smile, I hear him sing, all I get from the rest is bored. The beat is good, I'll play the CD for the the basic music, but I expected R & R and didn't get it.

    a brilliant singer of Life On Mars, A Change is Gonna Come, Feeling Good, If I Can't Have You, Come Home-I wanted lots more of that,but this CD will have it's place, it's got beat, but I want to hear Adam do another album that showcases his voice, his vocals soar, touch celestial rhealms and move souls not just bods.This is pleasurable pop music.

    OMG the snippets are amazing! Everything he promised and more! I was worried that there would be only one style, but he does mix it up with ballads, rockin tracks and electro pop. Glad we get to hear his beautiful voice. Can't wait for November 22 when he performs on the AMA's. What's he gonna wear? What gender will his back up dancers be (LOL!). The FYE single is suggestive. Can't imagine how far he will push it with the live performance. Saw him on the AI tour and his dancing to the Bowie Medley had people in a sweat. He is going to explode onto the stage in full Glambert glory. Can't wait.

    Adam was my chosen "Idol" from the show. Hearing this, he is my one and only personal "idol", no more voting (a joke anyway) no one else could sing these songs but Adam.He's soooo smooth, everything flows.

    From the snippets, I already love Muse's Soaked, A Loaded Smile and Broken Open only because it's ADAM voice that dominates. I just wonder if this electronic-pop style can be produced without drowning ADAM's voice which is the most beautiful instrument of all. It should be the focal point because there's no other like ADAM. I love the danceable tunes but don't like it if the electronic sound competes with ADAM's singing. I believe some are over produced. But it's ADAM, thus all songs will be great listening pleasure.

    I loved Time For Miracles, then For Your Entertainment, and it is incredible, but the whole CD sounds great from what I listened to. The whole CD !I'm glad I pre-ordered, it might sell out quick.
