Miranda Lambert, 'Platinum'
"Priscilla," as elsewhere on Miranda Lambert's fifth LP, takes a cheeky view of her ascent to country music Queen Bee. But mostly it shows how Lambert earned her throne: by singing top-shelf songs in the voice of a woman getting real. Listening to her records is like eavesdropping in a hair salon. The title track is near-literally that, a brassy set of punch lines comparing hair color with record sales and declaring, "What doesn't kill you only makes you blonder."
