CRITIC REVIEWS

A.V. Club

With its fresh, smart takes on youth, heartbreak, and modern culture, Bangerz is a record that could very well legitimize Miley Cyrus.

Sputnikmusic

This delusional “growing up is bad” aspect of Bangerz is part of what makes it good, because it means that Miley can pull off things that shouldn’t work.

70
AllMusic

Bangerz transforms Miley into a pop star who won't -- and can't -- be ignored as she rings in her twenties.

70
Consequence of Sound

Don’t be shocked that this album is mid-level pop, be surprised that even at 20, Miley can open her scope to encompass country, hip-hop, ballads, and even the electronic impulses of today’s pop.

Rolling Stone

Bangerz is the sound of Hannah Montana gone Miami Vice.

Slant Magazine
A few tracks find Cyrus genre-hopping without any clear focus, like the tedious and cliché "Love Money Party" and the rote "Maybe You're Right," but they're outliers on an otherwise consistent, and consistently surprising, album.

Billboard

"Bangerz," Cyrus' fourth studio album and RCA Records debut, is, for better and worse, the sound of a singer following a pair of enormous singles with a full-length completely from the perspective that birthed those two hits.

FACT Magazine

In a year where the pop charts’ two biggest singles sound like Jamiroquai and Emeli Sande has sold more albums than anyone else from the UK, a record this entertaining, diverse and full of surprises – and often, yes, good songs – feels like a breath of fresh air.

60
FasterLouder

Regardless of which it is, in trying to chase the ley lines of the pop music discourse of the current day, Bangerz feels a little lost for direction.

If there’s one thing that Bangerz can be described as, it’s run of the mill. There’s obviously a fair number of swear words and lots of references to sex scattered around the place, but even this just sounds so cynical as to come across as utterly innocuous.

40
PopMatters

While Bangerz pleasures are fleeting at best, the times when she goes all-out goofy, embracing the campy side of the popstar equation, she actually seems to have found her groove; shame these moments are surrounded by such atrociously forgettable filler.

40
Spin

Bangerz is a precise album that flits between bombastic and turgid; it is not very fun.

33
Pretty Much Amazing

These so-called Bangerz are hookless, poorly written, dully produced songs, and their singer doesn’t have the charisma or talent to see them through.

Tiny Mix Tapes

Bangerz isn’t really all that bangin :(

No Ripcord
Her recent singles and elevation to tabloid fodder may have secured her place in the upper echelons of pop stardom, but you’d hope that, despite mounting evidence to the contrary, having a decent song or two in your repertoire should count for something.

If you actually have multiple accounts here you seriously need to question what is important to you in life and make some changes.

Bangerz é o auge comercial de Miley Cyrus, mas também é um declínio artístico que resultou num álbum bem fraco, mas que te seu lado bom.

Melhores músicas : We Can't Stop, Wrecking Ball, Maybe You're Right

piores músicas : SMS, My Darlin', Someone Else, Adore You, 4×4

'Bangerz' é um declínio artístico disfarçado de auge pelo sucesso comercial conquistado por Miley Cyrus em sua mais polêmica e controversa era. Tudo isso deve-se à mudança repentina na persona artística que ao longo dos anos sofreu alterações, indo de mocinha à vilã, e claro que o público não iria receber devidas mudanças de braços abertos.
E no meio de tantas confusões e ... read more
