    The Pistol Annies released two excellent albums in 2011 and 2013, each
  to the brim with songs co-written by its three members: Miranda Lambert,
  Ashley Monroe and Angaleena Presley. In and around those records, Lambert
  became one of country musicÆs biggest stars and Monroe was recognized as one
  of its finest (and most underappreciated singer-songwriters).

  Somehow Presley has yet to rise above the level of third banana in this
  ensemble. ThatÆs not necessarily a shame, but it does feel a bit unfair.
  Presley may not have the same level of name recognition as her band mates, but
  the native KentuckianÆs 2014 debut American Middle Class affirmed her as a
  sharp tunesmith with an inventive take on classic country music. Her
  follow-up, Wrangled, proves thereÆs more where that came from.

  In a way, PresleyÆs work neatly splits the difference between LambertÆs
  wild-eyed defiance and MonroeÆs melodic melancholy, and sheÆs an older soul
  than either of æem. Throwback touches are threaded throughout Wrangled, from
  the reverberant guitar solo on ôDreams DonÆt Come Trueö (written with the
  other Annies) to the classic honky-tonk feel of ôOnly Bloodö to the jazzy
  upright bass line that grounds ôGood Girl Down,ö a collaboration with
  rockabilly legend Wanda Jackson. Even the cover art features retro fonts and
  fake vinyl record ring wear.

  Wrangled isnÆt stuck in the past, however. PresleyÆs vivid tales of love, loss
  and the everyday life of average folks are as relevant today as they were five
  decades ago and as they will be five decades from now (assuming we make it
  that long). Sonically, she takes some risks, setting ôMama I Triedö against a
  chilly beat and leaving studio background noise here and there in the final
  mix. These are small things, but in the context of NashvilleÆs highly
  airbrushed country-music machine, they make a big difference. Presley feels
  like a hyper-real presence in a very fake world.

  Only once does her boundary pushing go one step too far. The song ôCountryö is
  a woozy barnburner that features a verse by the Southern rapper Yelawolf. The
  rap itself isnÆt the problem (though itÆs not exactly YelawolfÆs peak,
  either), and the pushback against bro-country is appreciated. But the song as
  a whole feels like a good idea that never quite comes into focus. ItÆs a
  well-meaning, jumbled mess.

  Lack of focus isnÆt a recurring problem on Wrangled, though. Song after song
  features sharp lyrics, sublime melodies, strong performances and suitable
  production, with Presley cool, calm and collected at the center of it all. She
  may never be the most famous Pistol Annie, but on her second album, Angaleena
  Presley proves she belongs right alongside her colleagues as an artist.
