Miranda Lambert, 'Revolution' (Columbia Nashville)

Critical Mass
Label: Columbia Nashville

by Chuck Eddy

The revolution this 25-year-old attempts on her sprawling third album is mainly sonic -- guitar noise and booming drums out of garage and grunge, alternating with patches of soft-focus atmosphere that would slot her as alt-country if she wasn't blessed with a vivacious, platinum-selling voice. But Lambert is still at her bubbliest playing a guntoting, wisecracking, catfighting gal next door who cusses like a sailor, or at least brags that she does, plotting revenge on lying boyfriends and town hypocrites -- preferably at cowpunk tempo.
