Hearing the voice again is like finding an oasis in the middle of the desert. My insatiable thirst is temporarily quenched. It pleases me to no end that we'll get a whole 4:53 worth of Adam Lambert singing something new in Time For Miracles. I'm relieved to hear his voice hasn't been excessively smoothed over to lose its rawness as was the case with most of the AI studio recordings. He sings his own backing vocals with the harmonies resonantly spot-on. The song is nothing groundbreaking, being typical dramatic power-ballad anthemic soundtrack fare and far from what he's going for on the album. There are shades of Want in it, but he passionately sings the crap out of it. It's Adam's voice that really carries it and drives it and will ultimately keep us listening. And keep us fervently listening out for the rest of the song.
Get ready to hit replay. Repeatedly.
