Miley Cyrus’ ‘Bangerz’ Review

We Stopped.

With features such as Britney Spears and Big Sean, Miley Cyrus’ new album “Bangerz” mixes it all up.

The long awaited Bangerz is finally upon us. Miley Cyrus’ fourth studio album was preceded with outlandish videos, an infamous VMA performance, and raunchy photos. All the hype led to this moment, but was it all worth it? Eh, not all that much.

While I expected a more hip-hop vibe from the former country star, I expected it to be a bit better than what’s on the album. Her two current singles “We Can’t Stop” and “Wrecking Ball” remain to be the best songs on the album. This was actually disappointing for me. The duo of hits were great and I wanted more, but instead I got songs that are good in some areas and lacking in others. Vocals could be great, but lyrics and beat could fall off dramatically and in other combinations of the three aspects; no song really comes full circle. Honorable mention does go to “Adore You” (the album’s intro) and “Drive,” one of which will probably become her next single.


The album jumps around between slow, clean tracks to hip-hop/pop, fast-paced explicit ones. It’s very jarring if you’re listening to the album in order to go from a mellow track to one with a crowded pop beat. Features for the album such as Britney Spears, Ludacris, and Big Sean are incredibly weak given what these artists are capable of. Tracks on the album are all very weak in fact. None really stand out or give you a reason to replay them. I found myself only listening to the aforementioned four tracks and nothing else.

“Money ain’t nothing but money
When you get to the money, it ain’t nothing but money”


Bangerz is a messy album, with few gems throw into the mix. The sound and quality of singles like “We Can’t Stop” and “Wrecking Ball” do not reflect what’s on the album. Those songs seem to have had the most work put into them vocally and emotionally. The rest fall to the wayside and are easily overshadowed.
