I have been listening to Pistol Annie’s album pretty much non-stop for two weeks and appreciate the Rolling Stones review of the album (below). Each song takes on a new subject and different sound, giving the album a lot of big personality.
Rolling Stones, 4 stars review By Chuck Eddy
September 12, 2011
On the debut by their ad hoc trio, Miranda Lambert and friends Ashley Monroe and Angaleena Presley show off the kind of hard-living wit and hardscrabble class consciousness that have become tough to find in Nashville. Their feisty brand of country mixes Great Depression redneck blues, rockabilly and even a little ’65 Dylan (check the rambling Bringing It All Back Home backbeat in “Takin’ Pills”) without sounding retro. Though they sometimes opt for woozy beauty, they’re best rip-roaring about not making ends meet: deep debt, thrift-store curtains, mufflers tied on with guitar strings, no-good husbands kicked out of the trailer. It’s heartbreaking and hilarious, in equal measure.
