Reseña de álbum

Miranda Lambert didn't win the first Nashville Star in 2003, but she sure is the first bona fide star the televised music competition has produced, as her stellar 2007 sophomore album, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, proves beyond a shadow of a doubt. Taking her cue from the vengeful spurned woman of "Kerosene," her hit debut single, Lambert has built her second album around a tough-chick persona, something that may be clear from the very title of the album, but this isn't a one-dimensional record by any stretch. Sure, she plays the crazy ex-girlfriend of the title track — stalking her beau and his new girl to the local bar, which she promptly starts tearing apart — but that's hardly the extent of her hell-raising here. She takes righteous revenge on a guy who slapped her around on the rocking opener, "Gunpowder and Lead" ("he wants a fight, well now he's got one"), she's stranded without booze in a "Dry Town," and she breaks hearts left and right on the surging, hard-edged "Down," while she searches in vain for a good fling on "Guilty in Here," where she wonders what became of "all the boys that only want one thing." That line reveals that Lambert has a sly sense of humor, but she's not joking around: these are lean, hard-hitting, tuneful country songs, delivered with a classic outlaw strut and a vicious modern punch. If Lambert has a thin, almost girlish voice, she's hardly girly — there's an edge to her delivery that leaves no doubt that she possess nerves of steel. But for as strong as she sounds on the plentiful rockers here, Lambert also lets her guard down on Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, as she as she soaks her "Love Letters" with tears, sweetly sighs in "Desperation," and sadly wishes she was "More Like Her" as she looks on as her ex-lover returns to his old love. This last song provides a neat flip side to the rampaging title track, which also hints at this album's complexity. There are songs that are larger than life, songs that are achingly intimate, and they all add up to rich artistic statement of purpose that is also a hell of a lot of fun. Miranda Lambert knows exactly who she is as a musician, and nowhere is that clearer than how the three covers here — Gillian Welch co-wrote "Dry Town," Carlene Carter and Susanna Clark penned "Easy from Now On" (which Emmylou Harris popularized), and Patty Griffin authored "Getting Ready" (also heard on her own 2007 album, Children Running Through) — blend seamlessly with Lambert's eight originals. Every one of the 11 songs shares the same spirit and Lambert's is strong enough of a writer to hold her own with such heavy-hitters, possessed with a wry wit and clear eye for little details, mining the unexpected from such familiar subjects as love and loss and jealously and rage. Crazy Ex-Girlfriend would have been impressive if it was just a showcase of her strengths as a singer or as a songwriter, but since it is both, it's simply stunning, a breakthrough for Lambert and one of the best albums of 2007, regardless of genre.

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.

Before becoming one of country music's most popular females, Miranda Lambert successfully auditioned for Nashville Star, a reality TV series modeled on the American Idol format. She eventually finished third in the competition, earning a recording contract with Sony. Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, released in 2007, established Lambert as one of country's newest "bad girls," a designation that nodded to the fiery temperament of her music. Her songs spun tales of cheating boyfriends and domestic abuse, and they...
