Review Summary: One of the worst albums ever. Period.
Miley Cyrus seems to be attracted to controversy as though she had a magnet attached to her twerking backside permanently directed toward the local press station. Throughout her career she has had to deal with numerous accusations and knocks to her reputation, and has consistently continued with her music without addressing these issues a whole lot. As such, she has maintained virtually no credibility whatsoever, and so people naturally expect the worst when they hear the news that she is recording new material, or just when they hear her name in general.
In the case of 2013's Bangerz album, these thoughts would not be entirely unfounded. This is an atrocious album containing nothing listenable or even remotely tolerable, with some of the most atrocious, monotonous auto-tuned vocals and bland instrumental work ever put to record. The first song is a snooze-fest that sets the pace for the rest of the album in abysmal style, with some really poor minimalistic synth work and drum beats in the back ground as Miley sings some pathetic lyrics. She states "I love lying next to you, I could do this for eternity", and by this point I was seriously considering just turning the record off, and I truly wish I had done.
Not one of these tracks is even halfway decent. This is the same watered down R&B nonsense that is intended for dance-floors despite the fact that there is nothing to want to dance to about this album. Instead, this is nausea in musical form. Whatever possessed a record label to sign this piece of excrement is beyond me. Wrecking Ball has become one of her best known songs, and this track really is the epitome of awful. The lyrics are the same awful crap that should be expected of the former Disney singer, the vocal performance is too fine-tuned with a computer to the point she sounds robotic and the backing instrumental work is absolutely piss-poor. Miley Cyrus' Bangerz is an album that I advise you to stay away from as every song follows the same predictable formula.
