iTunes Review

With Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, Miranda Lambert continues to forge her hot rocking Texas twang with narratives marinated in the same kind of vindictive retribution that helped make her 2005 debut Kerosene a certified platinum success. With her second offering, Lambert slips deeper into the high maintenance character of the album's title as she opens the first song, "Gunpowder & Lead," with shotgun in hand while waiting for her newly-paroled, abusive ex to set foot on her porch (the lyrics were actually inspired by a concealed handgun class Lambert was taking at the time she wrote them). And of course the title track burns hotter than the fire she set to a cheating lover's house on her first album. Lambert's voice sounds so melodically maniacal here that you can't help but worry for the woman on the receiving end of the song. The chart topping "Famous In A Small Town" is an endearing country pop outing that champions heartland living while proving that the versatile Lambert can't be pigeonholed. "Love Letters" clings to the classic tear-in-beer honky tonk formula while "Desperation" is a moving, radio-friendly ballad that Jewel could've penned.

Customer Reviews

Listen Up, Nashville!

After 2005's "Kerosene," I was withholding judgment on Miranda Lambert. I thought she certainly showed potential, but needed a little more maturity to craft a truly great country album. Alert the media: this album is it. This is, hands-down, the best country album of 2007, maybe the best album period. Every song stands alone, but also is an integral piece of the bigger statement that is "Crazy Ex-Girlfriend." The songwriting is stellar, and sounds not one iota like it came off the cookie-cutter Nashville assembly line. The production and performances are excellent, and more cohesive than anything called country in years. This is what country radio should be playing, every single track. Miranda Lambert is country, bluegrass, blues, rock and roll, and some otherworldly something in between. Just buy it, and then play it for your friends who want to know what country music really sounds like.

There Oughta Be "More Like Her" in Country Music!

Miranda Lambert's sophmore effort is a wonderfully crafted CD, practially bursting with energy and well-written lyrics. She seems immune to the infamous "sophmore jinx" that often plagues new artists, as her CD is every bit as stellar as her debut. The opening track is certainly a standout. "Gunpowder & Lead" tells the story of an abusive husband (one whom we can assume doesn't make it very far after beating on Miranda), and it's a sure-fire top 10 single. Miranda's current single, "Famous In a Small Town," is quickly climbing the charts. It's an ode to small towns and their gossip, and the song itself is reminiscent of some of her stronger "Kerosene" tracks, specifically "What About Georgia" and "New Strings." Another noteworthy track that shouldn't be overlooked is the powerful "Desperation." Honestly, this song is one of the strongest ones on the album. Calming, yet highly emotional, this track is a refreshing change from the rest of the album. Not that the rest is bad--in fact, it's great. "Desperation" just breaks the mold (in a good way). All in all, Miranda's sophmore album is an excellent piece of work that no country music fan should miss out on. In fact, I'd say it's better than both of the albums put out by Tim McGraw and Martina McBride this year. If Miranda keeps putting out material this original and catchy, she's definitely going to have it "Easy from Now On."

RANTASTIC!!!

Ran has created yet another great album. Crazy Ex-Girlfriend not only takes you on an emotional rollercoaster ride, but you also get to see more of Miranda through the songs, on a personal level. She is just an amazing songwriter, singer, performer, and is truly talented. (I was going to pick out my two favorite songs, but I love them all...just buy the CD!!) PS the bonus track, "Girl Like Me", is beautifully sung...if you liked "Love Your Memory" from Kerosene, you will love this song.
