Like I mentioned before, the disjointed feel of the album was nowhere to be found. I think we can thank Monte Pittman for helping to create a unified musical feel for the show – very rock but a rich 70s style rock and not the achingly dull, drab rock of the 90s and 00s (you know the kind I mean – where it sounds like they cut out all the high frequencies.)
“Strut” popped on stage, the flabby “Surefire Winners” was booted into life, and “Sleepwalker” was given a real epic quality missing from the tinny studio version. The Gaga-produced “Fever” (one of my favorite tracks on the album) was also given a different, more organic feel. I’m really optimistic about Adam’s second album and I hope he does more of this organic 70s rock style (a la “Music Again”) instead of the dancey pop that was emphasized for the singles on his first album.
