Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Platinum (Audio CD)
I'm a fan of rock music but over the past year I've been listening to artists like Eric Church, Florida Georgia Line, Lindi Ortega, The Tennessee Three, Tim McGraw and Kacey Musgraves and slowly but surely getting into this genre of music,
The only artist I've been 'struggling' with was Miranda Lambert, although I liked her last CD's and her version of 'Wrote a song for everyone' on John Fogertys latest CD, I didn't think her previous stuff contained any knock-out tracks, but what a surprise when I played Platinum for the first time last night, compared with her last CD's this is a revelation, totally professional and an extremely listenable experience.
I can't list all the good tracks on this CD because everyone is excellent, The CD is quite Poppy/Rocky/Country in moments and is a lot more lively that someone like Kacey Musgraves latest CD, The album strays into a more country/vintage sound near the middle for a two or three of tracks but then reverts back to a soft rock country sound again for the final 6 or 7 tracks.
I think this CD could be the breakthrough album for Miranda in the UK and maybe with a tour she could gain some popularity over here as it is well deserved with this latest effort.
Girls, Platinum Smokin' and Drinkin and Automatic are excellent and that's only the first six tracks, from track 8 (Old ****) its country all the way until track 13 (Holding on to you) when the pace slows down with a couple of classic ballads a bit more country and some pop, the album stays strong to the end with no duff tracks, Give this CD a listen too as you won't regret buying this one its great and sure to get many more 5* reviews!
