I'm a big Adam Lambert fan. I'm not a fan of this style of music typically but this is a case of the artist (and the massive talent) surpassing the quality of the song. I will listen to Adam sing anything he wants to - he's vocal perfection to me.
This video is really subtle for him and I appreciate how the music is allowed to take center stage. He's mentioned in interviews that this is the kind of song he likes to step back from and allow the words to take shape in the listener's mind and I feel like he really achieved that - a kind of achievement that's rare for such a newcomer.
Of course, Mr. Lambert is quite different from everyone on all levels.
