  • Summary: This sophomore effort finds the former "Nashville Star" contestant becoming a bona-fide star (albeit from Texas rather than Tennessee). It combines eight Lambert originals with three covers.

It took me 5 bars, some 30 license plates I saw her mustang And my eyes filled up with rage I brought my pistol but I ain't some kinda fool So I... See the rest of the song lyrics

  1. Brash, insightful, wry, and, above all else, smart, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend confirms that Miranda Lambert is far more than just the latest in a long line of bad girls: She's a country music legend in the making, and the most vital artist Music Row has produced in a generation.
  2. Miranda Lambert is at a very rarified place right now, turning her songs into vehicles for a persona that transcends background narrative and personal history. This is Jagger, Bowie, Debbie Harry, and early MJ territory.

    Even if her fiery temper's not for everyone, she never stoops to teardrops-on-my-guitar banalities. [27 Apr 2007, p.139]

    [It] will likely remain the country album of the year. [14 Jun 2007, p.98]]
  5. The New York Times
    80
    Backed by ragged, loud guitar work and production that is full but not slick, Ms. Lambert sounds like a brash rabble-rouser, an emotionally insightful spark plug. [29 Apr 2007]
  6. While Lambert obviously sees herself as the headstrong country rock rebel that all the little girls will understand, the true joys of Crazy Ex-Girlfriend are to be found elsewhere.

    I love her fiery attitude. She's not afraid to speak her mind and be strong. I love it when young, pretty girls come off strong and I love her fiery attitude. She's not afraid to speak her mind and be strong. I love it when young, pretty girls come off strong and independent. It lets the world know that they're not all damsels in distress and singing nothing but "poor me" lyrics. Miranda definitely stands out! Expand

    Crazy Ex-Girlfriend is an underrated show, and tragically, a show with sub-par ratings. The humor is seditious, and the cast and charactersCrazy Ex-Girlfriend is an underrated show, and tragically, a show with sub-par ratings. The humor is seditious, and the cast and characters are very strong. Maybe women don't want to watch it due to the title. Maybe men don't watch it because of the musical interludes (which are always funny, and this comes from someone who hates every musical not from the creators of Monty Python or South Park). Expletive deleted the other shows you are thinking about watching, and see two episodes. Most TV is expletive deleted All network TV is expletive deleted. This show is worth saving. Expand
