Adam Lambert - Adam Lambert Releases Dystopian Video For 'Never Close Our Eyes'

Adam Lambert may sing that he wishes "that this night would never be over" in his new song 'Never Close Our Eyes' but the video accompanying it suggests that he's in fact having a rather rough evening of it - the star unleashing the new clip this week, ahead of the song's release. First of all the lad's hair seems to have been styled with the help of scaffolding either side so high does it ascend, secondly, he seems to be trapped in some sort of dystopian world where everyone dresses and looks the same. Except him, of course - surely you'd think whichever fictional oppressor was over seeing this futuristic world would've sorted that long ago. Apparently not.
So Lambert's galvanising these folk who are walking around the place, scrubbing floors and having regular eye-checks, mainly because he can block the attacks of some guys dressed in white with big smoke machine things. He does by shooting blue paint about the place, kind of like a rubbish Spider-Man, but better too because he's singing all the time whilst he does, claiming that he never wants to close his eyes - which could cause some physiological problems down the line.
Eventually a big duel occurs between Lambert and the oppressed and these chaps dressed in white, and there's only going to be one winner really. With his blue paint Lambert sees off the men and he and his cohorts - now replenished in colour - celebrate by dancing away like they were in some awful early 90s children's TV show. And this was the guy who was going to front Queen this summer. Crikes.

This is one of the very few bad reviews of this video.I agree with glamity58 (here) that you are taking the video and it's Orwellian concept a bit too literally and serious. He can't make a video with a same-sex love interest (world isn't ready for that yet) and if he made one with an opposite sex love interest, he'd be burned at the stake by the LGBT community as a "sell out" as well as laughed at derisively by the hetero community. Such is his lot right now. He is confined by the moral prudes in America and in the media in particular. Considering all that, one has to realize that he got very creative both on this video as well as his last one. I adore both.I only wish his hands (and creative spirit) weren't so hemmed in by a world that still is not as accepting and tolerant as it should be by now. He is doing a brilliant balancing act while working without a net! KUDOS to Lambert! (And not only is he fronting Queen for 6 gigs, but he will SLAY!)

Fact check : Adam Lambert will definitely still be fronting Queen for 6 shows this Summer, 3 of which are sold out and take place at the Hammersmith Apollo in London in July. Yes, Queen, the selfsame band that had a video depicting all the male members of the band romping about in drag with Freddie pushing a vacuum cleaner around! Crikes!

This guy is STILL going to front Queen this summer. And gosh, are you thick or something? Look at the videos Queen put out in the 80's, k? You obviously forgot or never knew the epic ridiculous showmanship of those vids, did you?

You are missing the true meaning and taking him too seriously. Can't you just enjoy it and enjoy his voice? I think it was clever and not too deep. He can't do anything right for some people. I don't agree with you and I hope he sings with Queen.
