What can I say about Miranda Lamert................. Well ......... Her Sound, The Lyrics and her delivery are truly reminiscent of the great Dolly Parton and her Looks remind me and others of [the smoking hot then and now] Faith Hill….. Hot Hot Hot,, Miranda is the perfect combination of Beautiful Twang. And a refined voice in many songs… One of the best and most heart warming of all time : “House that Built Me.” This, Kerosine, and more than I can list fit; then Break the mold of living the county life in a universal setting. Yes even great for city folks…… Thanks Miranda and keep making music for decades… Your fans Want (and yes, Need performers like you. It’s You Miranda Dolly, Tammy, Kenny, Tim, Jim, John and Clint, Waylon, Hank and Hank Jr. (Just to name a few) that make our lives make a little sense and help us to be senseless when we need it. Bless you and yours and may you have worldwide success….
I heard new strings and automatically fell in love with it Miranda is my favorite singer (and don't try to argue or there'll be nothing left of you;). I also 💗 kerosene. This album is pure gold!!!!!! You won't regret buying it! Its worth every penny!
I've been a big Miranda fan since the first time I listened to this album. It's by far my favorite! "Bring Me Down" is my favorite song of all time! I love her last three albums too, of course, but you just can't beat this one! I always go back to it! I love every song on this album!!!
To be honest, I haven't listened to this whole album. I skim through songs, but I'm sure if I listened to it, I would it love it like her other albums. Rated as a 4 because her voice is amazing.
Miranda's debut cd sets the stage for the 3rd place Nashville Star realit show runner-up. She is an outlaw, she is real country, she's got the goods - or does she? I am not fooled by ML's calculated persona that so many have fallen for. Her average voice and hit or miss albums have been rewarded with multipe album of the year awards, and honestly I do not know why? All 3 of her cds have about 2-3 good songs, the rest are filler. Add the auto-tune and slick production that covered up "Revolution" and you have a big sham, but a sham that her label has succesfully marketed and pushed for awards. In time, this album (like her others) will not age well since its built on "outlaw" posturing and an exagerrated twang. Some can be fooled, not me.
I remember thinking, as Miranda Lambert broke onto the scene in the wake of the public spurning of the Dixie Chicks for making public their disdain and shame for President George Bush, how much she sounded like Natalie Maines. Indeed, with radio-friendly tunes like "Me and Charlie Talkin'" and "What About Georgia," so close to the sound and tone of early Dixie Chicks, I felt she was designed to reclaim sales eroded by the Dixie Chick's maturation and eventual fall from favor. So, even though I have owned Kerosene for five years, I have listened to it sparingly. Then about a month ago, I was pulling together a playlist for my girlfriend to underscore her trip to CA, and I happened to click by mistake on "Love Is Looking For You" and, wow, was I surprised. Here was a preview of the poetic, musically clever and thematically introspective Miranda Lambert I've come to know and love. Since, I have given Kerosene a fresh listen and now have a far greater appreciation for the deceptive simplicity of Miranda's debut recording.
This album is pure, raw, country. Not like other people that claim to be " country" this album really shows her strength in singing. I love New Strings, Kerosene, and Me and Charlie Talking. Great all around. Keep going !
I've had this album since 2005 and I still play it on a regular basis 4 years later, it's that good. The ballads "Bring Me Down" and "Greyhound Bound For Nowhere" rip out a piece of Lambert's soul and paint a painful, but beautiful picture. While "Kerosene" sparks the ideas of a burned lover. There are also a couple songs based on being young and having fun in "New Strings" and "Me and Charlie Talking". Lambert also offers up a sassy-sexy idology in the song "I Wanna Die".
Kerosene by Miranda Lambert is a cool and important country album. Miranda is just one tough-as-nails chick, I love her attitude and songwriting. Kerosene, Me and Charlie Talking, and Bring Me Down were hit singles. There's A Wall is my favorite track here. Not a flawless album but very close.
I love love love Miranda Lambert. If you don't have anything nice to say about her music why bother posting crap on here? Miranda is genuine with her music. She writes from the heart unlike these lame pop wanna be country "stars". Everyone knows she won't take crap from lame boys. She has a beautiful voice and she is the definition of an amazing country singer. Definitely buy the album! It's worth it!
Country music gone wild. This album is so good "I want to die" She is such a good country singer and second thoughts saying "What about Georia" Then she says its just like a "Greyhoung headed nowhere"
UMMM well I only know 1 song off of this album!!!! AND ITS KEROSENE!!!!!!!!!!! MIRANDA LAMBERT IS A GOOD SINGER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I <33333333 Gunpowder and lead!!!
To all the haters out there....you stink! I mean did you people even listen to the same cd as everyone else. If you did then you guys seriously need to get your ears check if you think that miranda lampart is not talented....she is amazing and so is this cd....for someone as young as her I expected her music to be a little immature but i was pleasantly surprised to discover that her music is not only fun but very mature...so boomyah....keep kicking a** lampart!!!!
i love these songs and i just love miranda i love her concert energy and her voice and i like the songs especially that she mentions her dad bcuz of how close they r!!!! what about georgia is one of the top 3 songs on this cd i highly reccomend it!!!!
First of all, I don't know what iTunes was thinking putting this in the "rock" category. It's one of the most hardcore country albums I've heard in a long time. And I can't imagine Miranda being in any other genre, because she is a fabulous country artist. Her voice is one of the few truly country voices left out there, with an innocence, Texas accent, and rasp in it. Which contributes to the kind of music Miranda produces on "Kerosene." Of course, the title track is a must-have, and I highly recommend it when you're mad at an ex-boyfriend. On a lighter note, the banjos and crickets sounds (sounds random but works surprisingly well) of "Me and Charlie Talking" reminisce of a childhood love in a very realistic way. In the tale of love-gone-wrong "Bring Me Down", Miranda uses metaphors of razors, pennies, and flames to elaborate on her raw, broken heart. Perfect. Recommend tracks? "New Strings" and "Mama, I'm Alright." Both are stories of a young girl dying to get out and see the world, but in New Strings she's talking to a former lover, saying "you said I wouldn't get too far, but look where I am," and in Mama, I'm Alright, she talks to Mama, saying "I know you love me and want me to stay with you, but I'm going to be ok because of how strong you've made me." Both inspirational, and both beautiful. The follow-up to Kerosene, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, continues on Miranda's slightly rebellious, slightly sweet image, and I can hardly wait to see what Miranda is going to do next.
