After the release of Can't Be Tamed, Miley Cyrus took a break from singing and focused on her film career for a few years, allowing her to make a big comeback to music at the tender age of 20. Like so many Disney starlets, Cyrus needed to distance herself from her tween pop past; Can't Be Tamed tiptoed toward a more adult persona, but Bangerz kicks down the doors. This is her first non-Disney album, and in many ways it feels like a debut, an R&B and hip-hop-tinged coming-out party that introduces Miley as an A-list pop star. Bangerz's guest list is packed with star producers, including Pharrell Williams and Mike WiLL Made It, and vocalists like Britney Spears, who cameos on the fizzy "SMS (Bangerz)." Cyrus has taken cues from more established pop stars in the past -- Can't Be Tamed often evoked Ke$ha -- but one of the models for this album is clearly Rihanna. Miley's summer 2013 hit "We Can't Stop" was even originally offered to Rihanna, and they share a nasally buzz in their singing and a commitment to partying in their songs (if possible, "Love Money Party" sounds even more like a Rihanna-be than "We Can't Stop"). Bangerz's take on R&B is most convincing when it's balanced with Cyrus' country and pop roots, as on the Pharrell productions "4x4," an improbable but entertaining piece of country-rap featuring Nelly, and "#GETITRIGHT," which is so bouncy it almost sounds innocent despite Miley's insistence that she wants to be naughty. Cyrus and company also spend plenty of time sampling other early-2010s trends, whether it's the wobbly, dubstep-like synths on "Drive" or the EDM-leaning ballad "Someone Else," but on every track, she sounds more mature than ever before. Despite its flashier moments, there are also plenty of ballads, something hinted at by the album's second single, "Wrecking Ball." Bangerz even opens with a slow song (the unabashedly romantic "Adore You"), which in its own way is almost as bold a move as the publicity events that preceded the album's release. Brassy empowerment jams like "Maybe You're Right," "Do My Thang," and "FU" sell Cyrus as an independent woman, and the album accomplishes that mission: Bangerz transforms Miley into a pop star who won't -- and can't -- be ignored as she rings in her twenties. ~ Heather Phares
Artist Overview
Miley Cyrus became an overnight sensation through the television series "Hannah Montana", but the daughter of country star Billy Ray Cyrus soon established herself as a pop star in her own right. A soundtrack for "Hannah Montana", released in 2006, launched her recording career. By the end of 2010, that release, as well as three other Hannah Montana albums, had each sold at least two million copies. At the same time, Cyrus also recorded under her own name, beginning with the similarly successful Meet Miley Cyrus. The effervescent "Party in the U.S.A," was her most popular single, though she eventually gravitated toward relatively unconventional material made with Dr. Luke and Pharrell Williams, as heard on 2013's top-selling Bangerz. ~ Mark Deming
Professional Reviews
Rolling Stone (p.74) - 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "[B]allad crushers like 'Wrecking Ball' ride the hunger and confusion that make great coming-of-age pop."
Entertainment Weekly (pp.69-70) - "[U]tterly fresh, a pop blitz from a hip-hop blueprint, and proof that Miley won't settle for just shocking us." -- Grade: A-
Billboard - "'Wrecking Ball' actually hints at where Cyrus' career may take her next, since the vocalist expertly handles the mid-tempo ballad without a whiff of gimmickry."
