Haven’t listened to any of his new stuff, but I’ve always thought “Runnin” was pretty good.


Closer To You and Feel Something are my faves from his new stuff and really like Stranger You Are though it's mostly for the beat - funky and catchy.

Loved Runnin, should have been a single IMO along with Chokehold.

Of course, he manages to fit in a Queen cover. Not really surprising, but that is what I mean when lines are blurred. Why did he pick that one, I wonder.


One Queen song out of the entire set and lines are blurred? Foo's do Under Pressure every set, doubt anyone thinks anything about that, they love Queen and love singing that song, for them it's that simple and AOBTD is Adam's favourite, he's done it in his solo sets since 2012.

Does Adamtopia have separate section to discuss Freddie?


Not really, there was a poster who kept a Queen/solo thread going, but I haven't seen it updated in ages. The poster who started it and kept it going is pretty awesome actually.


Was the Queen thread mostly spam links?

Did the topic have a lot of empty vacuous comments about how collossal, monumental and stupendous Queen was with John Bogie?


Talon is the guy who did the thread and it's great, he's a die hard Queen fan who has links to loads of versions of every Queen song and patiently explained lots of stuff to glamberts who got interested in Queen through Adam. The first page has links to every song of Queen's and each section has him talking about the songs, when they were played live etc, the guy really knows his stuff. No it's not full of spam but it has got some of Adam's fans asking lots of questions, they don't see a problem with having a section dedicated to Queen and anyone not interested just ignores that section - it works brilliantly and everyone gets to talk about what they love without a problem.

Yes, I remember the first time I heard it. I didn’t think we’d ever hear it on the radio because his usable vocal range in it might be too much. At the time I thought it might be too strong for the average pop audience to hear. And i also thought it was too pop to be rock, but too rock to be pop. It would’ve have been great on the radio though I think.

Might’ve been played if we had a modern day Sam Phillips who didn’t cater to what New York dictated to be played.

He sings Trespassing and AOBTD as a medley because they have similar beats. I forgot to mention he did Trespassing and then into AOBTD.

OMG, not a Queen cover! How dare he!



Of course he did a Queen cover.
Are you over your hissy fits that you had earlier today?

I'm not talking about the Foo Fighters.
Yea, I know how often AL has covered it in his solo shows. I wish he would switch it up again. I think CLTCL would have been better suited for it.

He's done CLTCL solo as well but he's always done AOBTD with Trespassing, they segue into each other well and it's the one he loves to sing live, it has the funky bass he's into especially since his new music has lots of funky bass. End of the day he has his reasons for singing what he does and the fans seem to love it.

I like this guy’s analysis, great perspective on Adam’s mastery of vowel:

This is really good too. Adam’s skill is not subjective.

I do respect those who think Adam is a good singer, yet at the same time dislike him as an artist (i.e. original material). My only explanation for those who think he sucks as a singer is 1.) they are trolls, 2.) they dislike his tone of voice and equate that to skill, and 3.) don’t know much about singing. This would include the vast majority of posters named runner here.
