also that's a steal for polarized ones imo

which is why it's right that it's the most ecstatic part of the song

"To Learn Her" is like some lost country gem

can't get over how good this album is

Album of the Year winner at ACM last night. I'm fairly confident thinking it's her best album -- I listen to it at least three or four times a month.

I updated a quick best-of playlist I assembled last year.

"Ugly Lights," guys

I was in my brother-in-law's truck this morning while he switched through various pop-country stations and "Tin Man" came on, sounding utterly unlike anything else that popped up

i'm really glad her label's giving that one a chance on the radio

people reacted really strongly to her performing it on the acm awards

dyl, Saturday, 15 April 2017 19:53 (two years ago) link

yeah the clearchannel dweeb doing the countdown thing mentioned that specifically

eleven months pass...

Upon its release in late 2016, The Weight of These Wings was accompanied by a deluxe, hardbound book, containing exclusive images and details about the album’s creative and recording process of which only a few hundred copies were printed. Now, those images and words have been combined with official videos and previously unheard audio interviews from Lambert.

Today Lambert launches her a one-of-a-kind, interactive Virtual Book for The Weight Of These Wings, where fans can visit TheWeightOfTheseWings.com, connect to their own Spotify accounts with a single click, and stream all of The Weight Of These Wings double album 24 songs, which were originally spread across two CDs (and six sides of vinyl), thematically dubbed ‘The Nerve’ and ‘The Heart.’

New Miranda's song. Way more rock than I was expecting.

I like "All Comes Out in the Wash" best of the first three single.

Fuck the NRA (ulysses), Wednesday, 14 August 2019 16:52 (five months ago) link

New singles not doing much for me alas

Simon H., Wednesday, 14 August 2019 17:11 (five months ago) link

album art is outstandingly terrible

bluebird is really nice

J0rdan S., Friday, 16 August 2019 03:13 (five months ago) link

man "runnin just in case" is so good

J0rdan S., Friday, 16 August 2019 03:16 (five months ago) link

^^^^^

Tim F, Friday, 16 August 2019 07:42 (five months ago) link

this is the only album i've listened to for the last 2 days

J0rdan S., Saturday, 17 August 2019 03:35 (five months ago) link

i can't believe alfred was hating on tin man

this ACM performance is stunning https://www.facebook.com/mirandalambert/videos/10155657238850742/?v=10155657238850742

J0rdan S., Saturday, 17 August 2019 03:35 (five months ago) link

"smoking jacket" into "pushin time" is my favorite pivot on this album

J0rdan S., Saturday, 17 August 2019 03:39 (five months ago) link

the perpetual shimmer of "dear old sun" and "i've got wheels" really rewards you for making it thru all 24 songs

J0rdan S., Saturday, 17 August 2019 04:06 (five months ago) link

of the new songs, i'm into "mess with my head". it some weird parts but i like the chorus a lot... power pop sounds good on her. "bluebird" is good too.. "all comes out in the wash" is a cool concept but the song is kinda forgettable to me. "locomotive" was prob fun for her to record but not really her best context

J0rdan S., Saturday, 17 August 2019 05:54 (five months ago) link

there is a great line in "bluebird"... "if love keeps giving me lemons / i'll just mix em in my drink"

J0rdan S., Saturday, 17 August 2019 05:56 (five months ago) link

"little red wagon" legit is written like a be your own pet song

J0rdan S., Saturday, 17 August 2019 06:05 (five months ago) link

good morning!

hey, its host album is her best

"i've got wheels" fucks me up

J0rdan S., Thursday, 22 August 2019 04:47 (five months ago) link

fans of this record should watch this PBS special https://www.pbs.org/video/cma-songwriters-series-presents-miranda-lambert-2xrnpj/

J0rdan S., Thursday, 22 August 2019 04:47 (five months ago) link

^thanks for the PBS link. Interesting that she had so many different co-writers and yet the album comes across with a consistent voice. Such a great record.

that's not my post, Friday, 23 August 2019 05:32 (four months ago) link

bluebird IS good, isn't it

Fuck the NRA (ulysses), Friday, 23 August 2019 12:52 (four months ago) link

i will say that when she opens the song with "Yeah I'm a Turner...", I involuntarily chimed in with "And You're a Hooch" and I have to say I frankly think I should get a CMA songwriter nomination for that

Fuck the NRA (ulysses), Friday, 23 August 2019 14:23 (four months ago) link

also not for me. maybe next cycle

Simon H., Monday, 26 August 2019 16:37 (four months ago) link

damn, at this rate she's gonna put out every damn song on the album before the release date, which is still two months away.

Evans on Hammond (evol j), Friday, 30 August 2019 13:24 (four months ago) link

The guitar sound is nice, but I've heard this thing from her already.

TikTok to the (Alfred, Lord Sotosyn), Friday, 30 August 2019 13:29 (four months ago) link

put out another new one “pretty bitchin” which is awesome

J0rdan S., Thursday, 5 September 2019 15:46 (four months ago) link

discovered last night that the album this thread is dedicated to is absolutely one of my favorite albums of all time. even the sequencing is incredible

american bradass (BradNelson), Thursday, 5 September 2019 16:09 (four months ago) link

correct

J0rdan S., Thursday, 5 September 2019 16:11 (four months ago) link

one month passes...

another awesome one

J0rdan S., Thursday, 10 October 2019 16:54 (three months ago) link

the final stretch of this album is shaping up very nicely

J0rdan S., Thursday, 10 October 2019 17:09 (three months ago) link

I like to love about half of it. I regret that she's returned to shtick after the last album's small-burrow strokes. Two songs ("Locomotive" and "Settling Down") are among her best.

TikTok to the (Alfred, Lord Sotosyn), Thursday, 10 October 2019 18:04 (three months ago) link

i revisited crazy ex-girlfriend today and keep thinking she’s the greatest artist of my lifetime. she was due for another four the record i guess but i’m guessing i’ll still love it

american bradass (BradNelson), Thursday, 10 October 2019 22:09 (three months ago) link

she's the best recordmaker of the last decade, no question

TikTok to the (Alfred, Lord Sotosyn), Thursday, 10 October 2019 22:19 (three months ago) link

and I'll keep calling TWOTW her best until I'm blue, but, yeah, none of her records approaches "meh" except FTR.

Kerosene's the one that keeps knocking me out. She had found her voice so soon!

TikTok to the (Alfred, Lord Sotosyn), Thursday, 10 October 2019 22:20 (three months ago) link

Somehow the deceptive simplicity in Swift's songwriting makes me rate her higher among their generation but really it's neck and neck.

I think "Revolution" would be my pick but crazy ex-girlfriend, platinum all floor me. The Pistol Annies from last year was also right up there.

With Weight, there's a degree of Dave Cobb-ness that puts me away but I should really go back to it.

cpl593H, Thursday, 10 October 2019 22:33 (three months ago) link

Yes to Tequila Does and all the praise for TWOTW

that's not my post, Friday, 11 October 2019 04:12 (three months ago) link

i love "bluebird" "pretty bitchin" and "tequila does" off this record

based on structure i feel like this is looking a bit like platinum

J0rdan S., Friday, 11 October 2019 17:49 (three months ago) link

"Dark Bar" has a danger she's rarely attempted.
