Album Review

It's arguable that Miranda Lambert's debut album, Kerosene, is the first true Nashville product produced in the wake of Gretchen Wilson, crafted with an eye on the audience that Wilson's stylized redneck raunch won. Of course, with her golden blonde hair and good looks, Lambert seems like she would be crushed by the rampaging Gretchen, and there's a certain truth that Miranda is a bit fabricated and polished. After all, she started out as an actress, appearing in the long-shelved Piper Perabo teen comedy Slap Her She's French (finally released under the lamentably tame title She Will Have Way), and only got a foothold in the music industry by participating in USA's countrified American Idol knockoff, Nashville Star, where she placed in the top three. All this suggests that Lambert will be as slickly packaged as, say, a Southern Diana DeGarmo, but pop music works in mysterious ways: as it turns out, Lambert wrote all of the tunes on her debut, whereas the seemingly more genuine Wilson only wrote about half. That said, Kerosene lacks the gonzo humor that Big & Rich brought to Here for the Party, and Lambert's sweet girlish voice seems too tame for some of the livelier material. But that's not to say that those tunes don't work as well as the gentler pop tunes (the ballads tend to be a little treacly and nondescript), all of which are sturdily written, delivered with conviction, and given just enough gloss for an appealing sheen. Against all odds, this a rarity in modern mainstream country: a piece of product that's friendly, tuneful, sharper, and more genuine than it initially seems. Maybe Miranda needed a show like to Nashville Star to jump-start her career, but the show gave her the opportunity to make this thoroughly winning debut.

Customer Reviews

Amazing CD!

Miranda Lambert is one of the best new country artists today, as she brings a young and fresh sound to country music. This CD is GREAT and has so many songs with 'Number 1 Hit' written all over them. While "Kerosene" is an awesome song, my favorite on this album is "New Strings." "Me and Charlie Talking" is also great, as well as "There's A Wall." The entire CD is strong and each song has an individual "something" about it that makes the CD a very well-rounded. It has a diverse mix of slow and fast, and happy and sad songs. Miranda Lambert has such a clear and strong voice, which makes this cd truly awesome. We can expect great things, as well as many #1 hits, from Miranda Lambert! 2 THUMBS WAY UP FOR KEROSENE!

Kerosene is Great

Miranda Lambert is really good! My favorite songs are New Strings, Kerosene, and Me and Charlie Talking. In cheerleading we are doing a pom pom routine to Kerosene w/ straw hats. I asked my coach who sang that song and she told me. When I got home i went into itunes and bought it and was looking at her music! I was so excited because i live for country music!

Good stuff.....

Heard about this girl on a radio show.....haven't listened to much country for several years, but this girl is great. "Kerosene" reminds me of early Lone Justice w/ Maria McKee at the front. The new disc is excellent as well....somebody writing songs again that make you feel something! Good stuff!!! Looking forward to more from Miranda. Yes.
