Adam Lambert's (don't call it a) comeback single, "Ghost Town," is an eerie mix of haunting and sophisticated pop genius.
Lambert teased fans for weeks with snippets of "The Original High's" lead single via social media, but the clips don't do the song justice. It's radio friendly enough (√), but maintains a unique identity to establish itself as an original greatest hit from the American Idol alum - a huge plus working with pop music legends like Max Martin and Shellback.
The Kiesza "Deep House" and Hilary Duff “Sparks” comparisons are hard to ignore. It's as if Martin reached into the "What's In 2015" bag and pulled out sounds he knew already worked. However, they are forgiven.
He showcases his vocal game during the breakdowns backed by a simple whistle and funky guitar riffs. Lambert can't seem to find whether he belongs in heaven or hell, so instead he's left in a ghost town.
Now I'm searching for trust in a city of rust, a city of empires / Tonight Elvis is dead and everyone's spread and love is a satire

PS - Yes, the Madonna title comparison is equally hard to ignore. Ignore it.
