“Platinum,” Miranda Lambert
Release date: June 3, 2014
Why we like it: “Platinum”is stylistically Lambert’s most diverse album (and that's saying a lot given some of the adventurous turns she took on 2011's "Four The Record"): She veers into western swing on the chugging, plucky cover of Tom T. Hall’s “All That’s Left” (featuring the fantastic Time Jumpers), spoken-word blended with ‘60s psychedelia on “Red Wagon,” and rock on the thumping “Something Bad,” featuring Carrie Underwood. And she handles it all with her keen confidence. - Melinda Newman
