I think the problem Queen as a recording unit have is that they have a lot of familiar faces around them more often than not agreeing with all that's said. The yes man attitude protects the pay cheques.

The Cosmos Rocks suffered because of this and the fact Brian was devoting time to doctorate studies. The album could have been a lot better had they had a good producer who wouldn't be afraid to say no do it again! It also suffered from no real record company interest in gaining a foot hold in the market.

Of course like Miss Butterfly Wings says, Lambert can't write so it would put more pressure on BM and RT, I'm sure they wouldn't entertain having another four or five writers.

I think yes people surround Brain and Roger. Some choices they have made in the last few years...not the Queen I became a fan of in 1992. The Pepsi ad, the Wyclef mess of ABTD, are two samples that I think were the wrong choices. Even more recently getting involved with Idol and the Orbit mess...I don't understand it.

I think TCR is an ok album, some songs are better than others, IMO. I get more joy watching ROTC. I still love it, and that era. It's too bad it didn't work out for Q+PR. I would have loved to have seen those guys live. I was hoping to go if they came my way again.

Lambert's song writing is a joke at times. I think TwoFux was a mess, so much so I feel even with Brian and Roger playing it live didn't improve it. IMO, Lambert will be known as a singer and a cover singer at that. His solo career isn't stellar. Very few people sell millions of albums today. If there would ever be a Q+AL album I don't expect it to sell well. Touring is one thing. Recording another. But I hope they don't sink so low as to re record Queen songs with AL on vocals. That would be pretty fucked up, IMO.

Some of the songs I’m hearing on the Grammys tonight can’t compare to the songs on Adam’s 3 albums!

Two FUX was a fun song performed live! So STFU, icy and stop stalking me and commenting on everything I post.

You are kidding right? No, you are just bitter every damn year because AL doesn't appear, be nominated or win awards. Your bitterness and jealousy is showing again.
Do you know the meaning behind Lady Gaga's Joanne?
Do you think about Sam Smith's Pray being very appropriate for today?

TwoFux is utter shit compared to those two songs and most of the other songs being performed tonight actually have meaning. AL would be lucky to have a song in the same league as many of those songs and artists. TwoFux isn't what I'd call fun live or in studio. It's hardly a highlight in his career, IMO, and even Brian and Roger playing it live didn't help to turn it into a big hit. TwoFux is AL him trying to be blase, and failing at it. The fact it took 5 writers to come up with it, it's not his strongest song vocally, lyrically, and production wise. Time will tell if he can say TwoFux once Q+ AL is over, but I doubt he will.

Get your head out from AL's ass and realise there is a whole world of music out there. I really feel sorry for you that you are so unaware about it. Once again, every year for the past five or six years, you would rather gripe at other artists at the same time trying to promote AL. I doubt you know very much about the other artists and the songs performed at the Grammy's tonight and what it means and stands for. But keep on living in your Lambert bubble.

You are a chicken shit by the way. I had been posting about the Grammy's on QOL, and you suddenly cant help but to bring the Grammy's up over here. Funny thing that.

Why don't you STFU for once and for all or at least try to learn a few things? That might take away from your AL and Trump obsessions though ;-). But once again, I will not STFU on your say so. You want everyone who doesn't agree or have another view other than yours to STFU. You are like a spoiled brat who throws tantrums.

How many times are you gonna say I'm stalking you? That stalking crap from you directed at me. STFU about that, especially after you link to pics of AL with a newborn and a young child. Why would you even share that sort of thing. I want you to think for a second. I know you are a grandmother, would you want pics of your grandchildren spread and shared on the internet? Do you honestly think just because as you posted before just because some things are on the internet that it's not private? Seriously, please think about linking to pics of AL with very young kids. Those kids aren't celebrities after all.

There is no way you can tell me TwoFux is better than GaGa, Sam Smith and Kesha tonight. Three powerful examples of music being for good. Grammy's get slated much of the time, but tonight's show is incredible. The best Grammy's I've seen in years. Artists and music coming together, it's actually pretty powerful.
Sweetcaroline/CNB Too bad you are missing the points being made on tonight's show simply because you are jealous, bitter and butthurt and you head is so much up AL's ass that you can't see or hear anything or anyone else. You are saying some songs you are hearing tonight can't compare to what is on AL's albums. I'd go as far as to say everything I heard tonight is much better than anything AL has done solo or even his best covers. GaGa and Kesha blew me away tonight, it was so good. TwoFux doesn't come close to those sonfs, but keep trying to promote TwoFux, all it does it make you seem very narrow minded when you gripe about other artists and songs without even knowing about the other artists and songs.

Yes, I know how to read. Oooh, you are caps mad now. Angry much?
And you obviously aren't going to say if you knew what the songs that I mentioned above are about. I don't think you could try to answer anyways because you aren't aware and don't care about anything other than AL.

Two Fux is not a good song. Adam has some many EXCELLENT songs on his albums. I don't understand who picks his singles. Had I been in charge of career, he would quite a few number one hits by now. Fever. Sleepwalker. Chokehold. The Original High. The Light. There I Said It. Naked Love. Aftermath. Trespassing. I could pick more. How many of these songs have you heard Butterfly? Now, granted, they are all pop songs or pop ballads so you have to like that genre of music.

Now I am going to post Adam songs that would have made it to the Top 10 of the pop charts had they been released.

Your third and fifth links don't seem to work. For me I would have released Soaked as the first song, would have gone down better at the AMA's I reckon. He seemed more interested in doing pop but he doesn't stand out in that genre specifically. I think if he'd gone the more Adele, Sam Smith route and focused on showing his voice he might have had a lot more success. Just my opinion. I keep hoping he'll surprise us.
