One of the Boys isn't only the most diverse record from Wilson thus far, it's her most adventurous. It reveals so much, yet leaves the listener yearning to know more because it asks profound questions. Its songs are tight and wonderfully produced; these songs embrace the modern guise of the current country scene, even as the writing and singing put her squarely inside the music's grand tradition.

Austin Chronicle
Their review was generally favourable

Times may be tough in rock & roll, but country gals are rollin' in clover … and packing heat. Don't cross East Texan Miranda Lambert, or she'll pump you full of "Gunpowder & Lead," the 23-year-old's response to the domestic dustup of sophomore LP Crazy Ex-Girlfriend's airbrushed opener. Turning Gillian Welch and David Rawlings' "Dry Town" into a breezy boozehound anthem might log her more CMT time than that Coyote Ugly show, but Lambert's country credentials are secured by her and Travis Howard's "Guilty in Here": "Is it guilty in here, or is it just me?" If that's too Cheaters for you, try a spring fling with lingerie-clad Elizabeth Cook.
