Note – Songs will be rated on a scale of one to five Fierce Adam Eyes.
“No trespassing? Yeah, my ass! Wait till ya get a load of me!” Adam wisely places this funky foot stomper first, and declares from the outset that he’s not going to conform to expectations. This ode to individuality is filled with sass, and the beat and in-your-face attitude are reminiscent of the Queen classic “Another One Bites The Dust.”
Best Lyric: “I ain’t got BS in my bag, that’s the one thing you can believe.”
“Walk that walk like you don’t give a f*ck.” One of the most high-energy, beat-driven songs on the album, there’s no way you can’t flash back to the 80′s while listening, thankfully.
Best Lyric: “I’m swinging off of my hinges, I’m cocked and I’m ready to go”
“No I ain’t broken, but I, I need a fix.” With a bass so dirty it deserves a tongue bath, Adam declares that hunting season is open … but it ain’t a rabbit hole he’s looking for.
Best Lyric: “Take me, take me down, where freaks like us can meet.”
4. NEVER CLOSE OUR EYES
“There’s plenty of time to sleep when we die.” I’m still trying to figure out why one of the weakest songs on the album was chosen as one of the first singles. Originally a Bruno Mars demo, it has the distinction of being both overproduced … and undercooked.
Best Lyric: “N/A”
5. KICKIN’ IN
“He got words that rhyme, he got a dirty mind.” In fact, this track harkens back to the Prince classic “Dirty Mind.” It’s also one of the most irresistible songs on the album, with its story of … liquid euphoria.
Best Lyric: “She puts the shot glass down, she asks for another round. She wants to hit the clouds, honey are you up there now?”
6. NAKED LOVE
“I want your naked love, so dontcha dress it up tonight.” Straightforward pop gem that wisely eschews production flourishes and just gives us Adam … wanting to know you better.
Best Lyric: “Take it off and try me on, the hottest threads you ever wore.”
