    This woman can do no wrong. This album will go down as a classic, and it will surely be remembered as the album that changed her career. Country music would not be the same without Miranda.

    Revolution 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" stemmingRevolution 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 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.

    Just like all of Miranda Lambert's songs and albums she soars again with Revolution. Miranda Lambert never disappoints with any thing she ever releases.

  1. Revolution offers a strong, cohesive take on what has quickly become the “Lambert sound:” a blend of lilting ballads and loud, fire-breathing anthems, many of which owe as much to rock & roll as country.

    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.
  3. Revolution is the sound of Miranda Lambert coming into her own.
