Many people recognize Adam Lambert as one of the best musical talents to stem from a reality show singing competition, in his case ‘American Idol,’ season 8. He was quite the rocker when he appeared on the show, and it was fun to watch him grow as a singer as he progressed through the competition, almost winning. I happened to be watching that season, and it was evident the guy was going to become a star.
Since then, he has put out quite a bit of music, and his career technically started before 2009 and American Idol, but he was a child star in theatrical productions instead of a career as a singer and musician. What’s really interesting about about Lambert’s run on American Idol is how Simon Cowell viewed him and his performances. You see, Cowell was not known for being so nice!
However, Lambert was one of his favorites throughout all seasons he was a judge. Though he did critique Adam at times, it’s interesting to note that the only standing ovation that Cowell ever gave any contestant was when he stood up for Adam Lambert as the competition wound down.
Not only Cowell was in his corner, but all the judges were, as it was quite obvious he was going to be a star for years to come, as Paula Abdul indicated. If you haven’t caught wind of Adam Lambert’s music, it’s about time because he’s been putting out some great hits since 2009.
It has been widely noted about how Adam Lambert has opened up himself to the public as an openly gay music artist. He has set the pace in a way by doing this, and he is also very captivating at his live performances. Naturally with all this success, he has sold millions of copies of his albums.
Fear Factory has long been one of my favorite bands of all time. This is because Fear Factory really is a lot different to many of the other bands that are out there. I believe that the secret behind the bands success is the fact that they have differentiated themselves from most of the other bands that are currently seeing success all around the world. Indeed, when you listen to Fear Factory you will realize that there really aren’t many other bands out there that sounds similar. It’s for this reason that this article will look into my personal Fear Factory band review.
The first thing that I would like to talk about in regards to Fear Factory is the fact that they have great fan service. This means that they really do value their fans and are able to hold a huge number of events just for their fans. Indeed, all throughout the year, Fear Factory are available to be met for fan events at a number of large music conventions all throughout the world. Furthermore, during their live shows, it’s often very easy to go ahead and get a photo from Fear Factory if you are able to purchase a VIP access to their show. This means that they truly do value their fans and are happy to take photos with them to show them that they appreciate their continued support throughout the years.
I am truly a huge fan of Fear Factory, especially for their great fan service. I think that more bands should spend more effort showing their gratitude towards their fans. There seems to be a like of thankfulness from many of the big successful artists of recent times. Thus, it’s for this reason that I believe that the Fear Factory band is truly impeccable.
Have you heard of Florence and the Machine? While the UK band does have great exposure, and has done well since 2007, I don’t know much about them either. It’s unfortunate because they are a very popular band among those who know about them, and their music crosses different genres. This can be a positive factor for many bands when it comes to exposure, but in their case, I think it’s been a negative one.
As for their music, crossing different genres has worked out well for them. What they put out is well received, and they just need to increase brand exposure of their band, especially outside the UK. Have you heard of their song ‘Ship to Wreck?’ This is one of their popular songs, and it’s also what they performed when they were on the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.
While the music they put out is broadly classified as rock, it has some soul to it, which really does niche them out. Another song of theirs is ‘What Kind of a Man.’ In the UK, their albums have been chart toppers, albeit not necessarily #1, still popular and critically acclaimed for sure.
However, it’s widely apparent that the band and its members are appreciated much more as music ‘artists’ than they are for their music. It’s like the coffee house crowd going into the coffee house for some good music but mostly for the ‘experience.’
While they have been singing together for almost a decade, it is still evident that the band needs time to grow professionally. For a band that puts out this good of music, however, Florence and the Machine does have a future if they can keep producing tunes that people find relevant and noteworthy.

Lamb Of God has been a band that I have always loved ever since I was a teenager. Indeed, whenever I was in my teenage years, I would love going to Lamb Of God concerts with my friends. The metal band has been around for quite some time now, and they are still producing some really good material. Thus, I have always wanted to go ahead and spread the message about this band to the rest of the world. Hence, here’s my Lamb Of God band review.
The great thing that sets Lamb Of God apart from other metal bands is the fact that the production on the songs are really well done. The production that goes into the songs for each of the songs that you find on many of the albums that Lamb Of God have released is really exceptional. There are lots of metal bands that are known for having good lyricism, however, they often are not able to deliver when it comes to the production side of their music. This is not the case with this band, and I am always amazed at the new sounds that they are able to muster up, it’s truly incredible.
Furthermore, I have always been amazed by the fact that Lamb Of God have always been able to provide their fans with quality music for such a long period of time. This band has literally been around for over a decade now, and they still are going strong. This is an indication that the band members truly have a passion for what they do and are committed to providing the fans with some new material.
Hence, this concludes this Lamb Of God band review. I hope that anyone reading this review will go ahead and check out a few songs by this band for themselves.
Luke Bryan has emerged as one of the most popular singers of today’s time. He’s got a little grit to his music and style, which really is synonymous with the forward movement of country music in today’s world. It’s interesting because that ‘grit’ puts him in the same group as people like Travis Tritt, someone he was writing songs for early in his career.
His song ‘Kick The Dust Up’ is currently one of his most popular songs, and while he’s a newer face, he’s been around for awhile. His first record deal after writing songs came in 2007 with Capitol Records. By 2013, Luke Bryan had released his fourth album, and it as this year that he released his latest album, his fifth, which has the aforementioned song ‘Kick The Dust Up.’
How many number one hits has Luke Bryan had during his career? The man already has 13 #1 hits to his name! That’s quite an outstanding feat for someone who has five albums over a short period of time. That means that many of the songs from each album are well received.
There are many more country artists out there these days as well for Luke Bryan to be competing with. So, for him to be sitting at the top right now, that’s also a good achievement. There are others at the top with him, but he’s definitely one of the best at the moment.
How long will he stay there? Who knows, but with already having 13 #1 singles as mentioned before, even if he never released another one, he’s going into the Country Music Hall of Fame. He has won plenty of awards already, including Entertainer of the Year. And, that’s part of his persona, he’s definitely a personality, an entertainer.
If you mention Alan Jackson to the younger generation these days, most of them are likely going to view him like I viewed Conway Twitty when I was growing up. I knew ‘of’ him, and I knew he was one of the greats. But, he was no longer really putting out the most popular music.
Alan Jackson is still in the country music business of course, but there are younger, newer names that have essentially taken over the scene. I’ll never forget the first time I really started paying attention to country music as a kid. I had a couple Garth Brooks tapes, and I had an Alan Jackson tape.
I’d go out in the backyard and play around listening to my Walkman as I played ‘Don’t Rock The Jukebox.’ I can still sing all the lyrics, and of course there was ‘Midnight in Montgomery’ and several others that I listened to as a young kid as well. Later on, another song I really loved of his was ‘Remember When.’
‘Remember When’ is such a beautiful and touching song, and Alan Jackson has such a unique and distinctive voice. While he is a huge name in country music, he’s never been much of one to take the headlines. That is why when names like Luke Bryan, Kenny Chesney and others started hitting the scene, it was quite easy for them to steal the limelight.
Still, Alan Jackson will always be one of the greats in country music, and if you look at lists of the greatest country songs of all time, he’s got songs on up there with greats that have been gone for quite awhile. That just solidifies him as one of the greatest country music singers of all time.
Merle Haggard and Willie Nelson are two of the most well known and unique country artists of all time, and you can really say that they did it “their way.” Willie Nelson, who wrote the song “Crazy” made famous by Patsy Cline, has written and sung some of the best music of all time, and performs it with his band regularly. Merle Haggard, of “I’m and Okie from Muskogee” fame is held in similar esteem by country music fans.
Both artists could be said to have written and sung songs that champion the average person, beset by the “pretty people” of society, and how the average and downtrodden hold the pretty people and their ways in contempt.
Willie has had a lot to say to in regard to some love songs such as “Blue Eyes Cryin’ In the Rain,” and “To All The Girls I’ve Loved Before.” Haggard is known for “Mama Tried” and “The Bottle Let Me Down.” All of their songs are sung with a twinkle in the eye and a truth to the tone, as their fans never get tired of their music.
Recently Willie and Merle have teamed up again to follow up on other collaborations of the past to make a new album called “Django and Jimmie.” The fun and irreverence is still there, but now they are two old men still reveling in their insane attitude about not really giving a damn, and smoking a joint or two during the recording.
Merle and Willie, who are both on the other side of 80 can still “cook it” as they display a special artistry in the country, rhythm & blues, and jazz inflections that they effortlessly put into the music.
Willie with his piercing nasal twang and Merle with his forceful voice still punctuating the point at the right moment, both hit the mark again and have left us with another winner.
