Miranda Lambert's REVOLUTION: The Sexiest Voice in Country Gets Even Sexier

  • Nov 22, 2009
Rating:
+3
The sexiest voice in contemporary country continues to seduce as Miranda Lambert releases "Revolution," a 15 track mini-opus displaying singing and songwriting prowess from such a young C&W soul. In short summary, this is one REVOLUTION worth joining.

White Liar: (3.5 out of 5): At best, it's a toe-tapper elevated above average by Miranda's beautiful twang. The message is a bit obligatory: 'you're a bad boy, and you made me a bad girl' kinda retribution.

Only Prettier: (4.0 out of 5): A clever little ditty about reaching compromise (or is it?) between two opposing points of view. Unabashedly and uncompromisingly country, which is a welcome sound anywhere.

Dead Flowers: (3.5 out of 5) May be a touch too maudlin for its own good. Melancholy, but meaningful. Take it or leave it.

Me & Your Cigarettes (4.5 out of 5) Only complaint is that the song concludes way quickly for my tastes.

Maintain the Pain (5.0 out of 5): Sounds like a groovy '60's tune amped up via alt country. Great driving track once it revs up under Miranda's stellar vocals.

Airstream Song (3.50 out of 5): Would say more, but there just wasn't much here to latch onto. It is what it is.

Makin' Plans (2.5 out of 5): In my opinion, it's the least interesting song on here. Nice message about seeing the future via the present, but, otherwise, it's just a tune, like any other.

Time to Get A Gun (5.0 out of 5): Hmm. A slow, sexy twang to a song about buying a gun. Yeah. You know this is country and western. As a matter of fact, it's classic C&W. In case the NRA's looking for a theme song, I'll nominate this one heartily. And Miranda can be the spokeswoman. Them there guns'll sell!

Somewhere Trouble Don't Go (5.0 out of 5): This is the kind of song Miranda was uniquely born to sing, a thought-inspired rockabilly anthem.

The House That Built Me (5.0 out of 5): Love it, love it, love it. A soft, subtle reflection on where one came from. Most Hollywood types take years of therapy to reach these kind of conclusions.

Love Song (5.0 out of 5): Dare I say ... a perfect love song?

Heart Like Mine (4.5 out of 5): Homespun gospel about two wine-drinkers (one of them's Jesus!).

Sin for a Sin (4.5 out of 5): Strikes a chord and keeps on doing it. Much worth the listen.

The Way the World Goes 'Round (4.0 out of 5): Solid outing, if not a bit experimental.

Virginia Bluebell (4.5 out of 5): Dreamlike meditation on the nature of beauty.

Miranda Lambert Sets California
Miranda Lambert's "On Fire" tour made its way to the west coast with a stop in Fresno, California on April 26.  Miranda is no stranger to the San Joaquin Valley - we've seen her here numerous times; however, a lot more people have jumped on the Lambert bandwagon since those early days.  She went from playing radio gigs in city parks to performing at multiple valley fairs, then moved her way up to headlining a local casino.  Her last appearance here was in 2010 as …

About this musician

Wiki

Born: November 10, 1983 in Lindale, TX
Years Active: 00's
Genre: CTRY

Country songwriter Miranda Lambert was born November 10, 1983, in Lindale, TX, a small town about 80 miles east of Dallas. The daughter of country guitarist Rick Lambert (her mother, Bev, ran a detective agency), she grew up in a house dedicated to country music and began entering country talent contests when she was 16, including an appearance with the Johnny High Country Music Review in Arlington, TX. Lambert learned to play guitar and began writing her own songs while continuing to enter talent contests, one of which earned her an appearance in a potato chip advertisement and the 2001 teen comedy Slap Her She's French. At 17 years old, she formed the Texas Pride Band and began gigging professionally, and later in 2001, with financial help from her father, she showcased her songwriting by releasing an independent CD, Miranda Lambert. Two of the album's tracks, "Texas Pride" and "Somebody Else," even entered the Texas music charts.

In 2003, Lambert finished first in the Texas auditions for the Nashville Star television show. She decamped to Nashville in order to appear on the show and eventually finished third in the competition, which led to a recording contract with Sony. Still only 21 years old, she released her first major-label single, "Me and Charlie Talking," in 2004. The consequent album, Kerosene -- for which Lambert wrote or co-wrote ten of the 11 ...
