Honestly? How on earth could they claim he's lost his appeal as a SINGER!? Granted If I Had You isn't exactly a super vocal-heavy song- it's more about the fun dancyness of it- but WWFM is incredibly vocally stunning! He hasn't lost a THING vocally.
I think the problem is some people don't get that just because not every song on his album is a super vocal-based song, that doesn't mean he's NOT still an incredible vocalist. It just means that he personally really enjoys pop/dance music as well, and wanted to incorporate that into his album. Just like GaGa is an amazing vocalist as well, but not all of her songs are really designed to show that off- they're designed to be fun, catchy dance songs.
I would feel the same way if Adam had made a PURELY electro/dance album, but he didn't at ALL! Soooo many of the songs show off his incredible voice. FYE and IIHY are probably the two that do so the least, and most of the other ones absolutely do.
And as a performer, I just don't see how they can say he wasn't incredibly engaging on Oprah! To me, he's lost absolutely NOTHING in charisma or vocal prowess. So I do not get what they're going on about.
The only thing I can think is that maybe they've just seen him perform WWFM on various shows so many times that they FEEL like he's losing his magic, even though it's really just because they've seen the same performance so much they've become immune to the fact that it's still very special.
