Upon the arrival of Lambert’s sixth studio album, The Weight Of These Wings, has been met with a swarm of praise from music critics including Rolling StoneNPRThe New York TimesBoston GlobeWashington Post and Us Weekly.

“…a range-y two-disc set ditching country’s mainstream playbook for the sort of Great Album rock acts used to spit out regularly back in the day.”

– Rolling Stone

“Lambert crafts a sound that is deeply adaptable: catchy and introspective, tradition-bound and cleanly contemporary.”

– NPR Music

“…her piercing voice breaks in just the right places when her mood grows downcast, and explodes into colorful curlicues when she’s enthused, or peeved.”

– The New York Times

“…marvelous 24-track masterwork.”

– Us Weekly

“ ‘The Weight of These Wings’ matches the take-no-prisoners attitude of her lyrics with music that travels unexpected routes but often winds up touching the soul.”

– The Boston Globe

“Across 24 contemplative songs, Lambert aches without wallowing. She daydreams without self-delusion. And that brilliant twang in her voice sounds more anchored, more experienced.
If sorrow can congeal into wisdom, this is what it sounds like.”

– The Washington Post

The Weight Of These Wings, Lambert’s double album, is produced by Frank Liddell, Glenn Worf, and Eric Masse.
