  1. Revolution is a portrait of an artist in full possession of her powers, and the best mainstream-country album so far this year.
  2. A dense, challenging record, Revolution once again finds Lambert setting the benchmark for the country genre even as she begins to consider the possibilities beyond its borders.
  3. The angry young woman who famously sang about setting kerosene fires and waiting with a loaded gun for her abusive beau has found love with new boyfriend Blake Shelton, and it's reflected on the diverse Revolution.
  4. Of course she's quieting down as she grows up, plus covering her bases, so after half a dozen winners she levels off into a nine- song sequence.

    Revolution is the deserved winner of the CMA and ACM album of the year award. In-keeping with her trademark country rock sound Lambert remainsRevolution is the deserved winner of the CMA and ACM album of the year award. In-keeping with her trademark country rock sound Lambert remains true to herself here. The songwriting has improved and we're allowed to see the softer, more vulnerable side of the country vixen on tracks like The House That Built Me and Virginia Bluebell. The songs are so believable, "Heart Like Mine" stemming from a Tweet Lambert sent about a guy challenging her about drinking a Bacardi & Coke at the airport. She clearly has the Acclaim and she's racking up the awards but one thing she lacks is sales...that do not reflect the strength of her albums. Overall this is Miranda's best album to date, she's gone from strength to strength, hopefully her Husband's new found fame as a judge on The Voice may bring some more deserving sales figures for her next album.

    Miranda Lambert's third album continues her success from her debut and second album. It features touching ballads and rock & roll country withMiranda Lambert's third album continues her success from her debut and second album. It features touching ballads and rock & roll country with a fiery bite and she blends the music effortlessly, with a voice that seems more gentle and settled than earlier. It could have chopped down a few songs, but apart from that it's one of the very strongest country music albums of 2009. Full Review »
