Brian Mansfield's Review of "Broken English"

Broken English (Sam Sparro, Lester Mendez, Adam Lambert).

Lyrically, this pulsing tune's a bit of a jumble. I suppose that's the point: After all, it begins with an allusion to the Tower of Babel, and the hook line's "Your body language is broken English." But Adam could be speaking in tongues and, given the vocal pyrotechnics here, fans wouldn't care, especially during the breakdown, when he takes wordless flight with a soaring, modal melody.
