About Carol

I started writing on this site back in May 2009, not knowing what I was in for or where it would take me. I had no idea of the joy and personal satisfaction I'd find here. I never dreamed that I'd get to meet Adam, but that dream came true! The bonus of becoming such great friends with Lila and the other fans is what keeps me going. Music gets me though every day. In addition to Adam, I love Muse, Linkin Park, 80s and finding newer bands and supporting them by attending everything that's within 350 miles. With Adam, the boundaries are farther! Thanks for joining us on this ride! :)

    Multiple hooks and a very large ear worm. This piece will be irresistible.

    If this isn’t the relationship that someone is in it is certainly the one they would want to be in.

    I think that when someone hears this song for the second time it will feel like its been part of their life forever. I also think I am babbling now because I want to say so many good things and there is no beginning or end to the praise I want to give Adam.

  2. I sure hope that is not the best song. It is modern and poppy but too much so. he has a great voice but the song is weak. Adam needs a song with depth and range like his voice and that sond does not do it for me. hope the other songs are better.

    • I want to hear the vibe that he put into twenth century boy Live into a studio song.

      • I agree Jim. Maybe we’re a little different. I liked the Idol songs that were stronger vocally and more rock ‘n roll. I hope this song does well, but I’m not thrilled with the vocals. I don’t get what “bridge” everyone is talking about. I will keep listening because I am hoping it grows on me.

        • Lila - Glamb #3 says:

          I’m right there with you. I prefer more of a rock sound… I’m not big into pop. This is good, but it’s going straight to radio.

    • I agree. I wish the background wasn’t louder than his voice. I hope the songs won’t be overprocessed. I love the acustic versons because we have the focus on hisbeautiful voice and not the thumps of the background.

      • Yeah i agree too over produced, he doesn’t need to do that. His voice and range are exceptional and this song does not show any of that. i could see a lot of lesser singers doing this song. Maybe it’s just bad advice? Maybe Adam needs a Todd rundgren or Mutt Lange great rock pop producers.

  3. WWOOWWW!!!
    The Adam vocals is still unbeatable.

    I’m no longer that concerned with the music and the song… but the Adam voice that seeps through any gamut and any context. The voice with it’s sterling quality that soars above the heavens, is still there. So alive and awe-inspiring. Whatever happens, between now and then, Adam’s voice will still surface and shoot through the constellations, the galaxies… of whatever Music Contest as unbeatable. For me, Adam can take anyone, anytime, anywhere and anyhow, and be the winner.

    I pity the new judges, of the several Music Contests, because they were not able to witness Adam, and be transported. They lack the fortune of having witnessed Adam in a Contest. They never knew how it was when Adam was in AI Season 8. For us Glambs it was a milestone.

    Trespassing or not, obsessed or not(ha-ha-ha), humbled or not……I’ll always remain an Adam fan.

  4. I agree with Jim . Adams voice does not touch my soul with this song. I like the words but the rest isnt my favorite yet.

  5. This is an amazing day! I’m so excited. The song is wonderful & have only listened 4 times now but I have a feeling that it will be 4, 444 times real soon!
    Adam “THANK YOU” for the fantastic holiday gift to all the Glamberts around the world.!
    We look forward to the video & the rest of your genius on “Trespassing”!
    Happy Hanukka Adam to you & yours!
    Rock on Baby!!!!!!
    XO Adamicted

  6. I’m up in the air on this. He sounds good but I think the background music is kind of overpowering & really doesn’t let his full voice come thru. I wish he would have gone more with his softer side like in WDYWFM. I guess the more I hear it the more it will grow on me, but waiting for the whole new album to better judge his choices. I’m sure I’ll love it just like the 1st one. It’s more rock style than I thought it would be. I love the songs when his true tone & quality voice come thru & am hoping it shows up better in his other song choices.

    Hotter and better than ever… as we always knew he would be. New album, coming from a different place, and a different time in his life…. gonna be amazing. No doubt – never a doubt when it comes to Adam, the best of the best.

  8. I didn’t feel what others are feeling. Hope to listen more and hope it will grow on me.
    As Glamity58 said, I like the songs and style he sang in AI. Always I love love ADAM.

  9. Adamsrealgirl says:

    That was amazing! Great early birthday present (tomorrow)… It was just what I hoped for<3

  10. I think it’s a beautiful song although far from being my fave of his. It’s the first time I’ve heard the word “obnoxious” in a lyric – and Adam pulls it off! This goes to show what we’ve always known – that Adam can sing the phone book and still sound great. His amazing vocal talents transcend any genre he is singing in, so you can enjoy his artistry even if the song choice is not your personal fave.

    As a lyricist, I do resonate to the concept “better than I know myself” as there are indeed, a couple of people in my life who know me very, very well – too well!

    But going back to this “obnoxious” thing, those of us who’ve been lucky enough to meet Adam know that he is the opposite of obnoxious in person – he is charming, polite, honest and good-hearted, so I am going to guess that these sentiments are not, in fact, coming from Adam himself, but from his co-writer(s).

    this song is a beautyful ballad , fabulous like him.

  12. I love Adam and loved his first album, but I think this song sounds too “boybandish” and that scares me because they don’t do well on the radio and I’m afraid for him. Myself, I like the song and the boyband music but not many others do. I hope I am wrong.

  13. Granny Gari says:

    I am still on his JOURNEY with him. Adam is versatile and this song proves it. His voice is undeniable.
    I hope his album will be up on the top and he gets royalties forever for it.
    Good luck to you Adam, and thanks for being who you are.

  14. Jus waitin 4 u a neu album. :-). .
