Editorial Reviews

2009 release, the third album from the Country favorite. Lambert, a two-time Grammy nominee has seen both of her previous albums debut at #1 on the Country Album Chart. Lambert wrote or co-wrote all but three of the 15 cuts on the album and worked with a cross-section of writers including Blake Shelton, Ashley Monroe, Natalie Hemby and Lady Antebellum's Dave Haywood and Charles Kelley, who lends background vocals on 'Love Song.' Of the three songs Lambert did not write, she pulled from the best and her favorites - John Prine, Julie Miller, Allen Shamblin and Tom Douglas to complete the album.

Miranda Lambert, the spit fire with the stunning voice and sharply written tunes to match has finally come out with a complete album leaving little doubt that she deserves enough radio play for not only her content but also her voice. It's a shame she is not appreciated more. She is the female equivalent of Gary Allan; vocalists whose voices are so distinct that you can instantly recognize them on the radio ... if they were played more often on the radio.

What makes Revolution such a strong album is that Lambert is clearly going for a more mainstream sound but without sacrificing her attitude. "Me and Your Cigarettes" is a perfect example with lyrics such as: "light us up and then throw us down/walk away when we hit the ground," is given power because she undermines the delivery. She's not afraid to let the lyrics in these songs drive you instead of selling "Miranda Lambert." And just like the acts that are getting it right on the radio, Darius Rucker, Sugarland, Carrie Underwood, she's going for content; strong melody. These songs will take root in your brain.

Also, there seems to be more to mine in these songs than what she's given us before, deeper lyrics, more introspective. Her voice has grown in range and it shows, simply stunning in "Makin' Plans." It rides under the melody and guitar play beautifully, and the harmony is just as seductive.

I don't want to put out the wrong message as with the vibe of this album, even though Lambert seems to have corralled her strong points into wondrous melancholy; she still knows how to rip a song apart, tearing into "Sin for Sin" with pure raw power and doing it again with "White Liar."

I hope with this disc she finally gets the mainstream megastardom that has eluded her so far.

My problem with Miranda Lambert's first two CDs was that they sounded like twangy tough chick therapy sessions. I felt she had successfully created a niche and a persona to allow herself to stand out from the crowd of pretty blond Nashville wannabe stars. Her vocal abilities and songwriting skills were never in doubt. But I seldom was able to get past that hard exterior of that persona to get a glimpse of the real Miranda as opposed to the character she was playing.

With her third CD "Revolution," problem solved.

I don't know if it's age/maturity, having seen more of the world, her happy relationship with boyfriend Blake Shelton, or the encroachment of Carrie Underwood into her niche, but with "Revolution" we are earwitness to the birth of a real artist. Here is the true Miranda Lambert, warts and all.

She is still tough at times ("Me And Your Cigarettes"), still angry at times ("Maintain The Pain"), and still unhappy at times ("Dead Flowers"). But by the halfway point we've also gotten wistful ("Airstream Song"), hopeful ("Makin' Plans") and even ironic ("Time To Get A Gun"). And from there she just kicks it into another gear and becomes a star as opposed to a chick singer.

Starting with Julie Miller's "Somewhere Trouble Don't Go," Miranda delivers seven consecutive killer songs that paint a portrait of a fully dimensional human being willing to expose her true self to the world. And the results are brilliant.

So I was getting anxious that this album wouldn't live up to my expectations. I saw Miranda with Kenny in the summer and she did some songs from Revolution, but it's hard to really tell when hearing them live for the first time. Kerosene was great and Crazy Ex-Girlfriend really grew on me. So was it possible for Miranda Lambert to put out yet another solid effort (we see so many artists faulter)? Well, thankfully the answer is a resounding yes. Revolution is really a great record. It is different than Crazy Ex, just as Crazy Ex was different than Kerosene (and both were great in their own right). But rest assured Miranda still rocks, twangs and rolls with the best of them. Best of all, Miranda's spunky Texas tongue-in-cheek humor and sarcasm are alive and well. "Only Prettier," "Time to Get a Gun," and "That's the Way the World Goes Round" (my favorite song on the CD) are a few examples of that. So have no fear: Ran has NOT gone soft on us. Still, she is getting more introspective and it really shines on this record. I usually don't list slow songs among my faves, but Miranda's "The House That Built Me" is a beautiful beautiful song. The timbre in her voice on this one is really great -- I hadn't heard her like that before. Listen on headphones and you will know what I mean. "Airstream Song" is another laid back, thoughtful porch-swing kind of song that gets into your head. All in all, this is a very solid album and Miranda is alive and well and still kicking hard. I like just about every track on this record. This is arguably her best record to date. There are only a couple that I skip by now and then. Fans and newbies alike will not be disappointed. (Now if only Miranda would record a version of Fighting Side of Me...)

this cd was scratched
But they do get lost when your hard drive decides to take a dump. Go take the cd back and get a PHYSICAL copy. So much better.
