Entertainment Weekly

Dead Petz is a remarkable accomplishment because Cyrus appears to have grasped all of her potential at once: there are Hot 100-ready sugar bombs, psychedelic departures, rugged rock, and throbbing alt-pop that immediately makes the year’s other best pop record (Carly Rae Jepsen’s excellent EMOTION) sound alarmingly obsolete.

God Is in the TV

Dead Petz is Miley Cyrus with a creative vision, putting the self-expressiveness of her personal life into her music.

Pretty Much Amazing

If you can force yourself to slog through the bullshit and actually pay close attention to the album, you’ll emerge from the experience interested and engaged.

'Miley Cyrus And Her Dead Petz' is surely the weirdest album made by a massive pop star in recent memory, but more impressively, it's also an essential listen.
Time Out London

It’s bloated, self-indulgent and occasionally cringey – but never boring. A couple of tracks are up with the best of 2015.

Rolling Stone

Most of Dead Petz sounds pretty much like the Lips' latter-day output — she aims for Coyne-like high notes that don't suit her lowdown voice. But she scores wacko successes like "Milky Milky Milk," "Cyrus Skies" and "Slab of Butter (Scorpion)," along with cameos from Big Sean, Ariel Pink and producer Mike Will Made It.


Miley Cyrus & Her Dead Petz needs an editor, but there's more than enough worthwhile music here to transcend shock value.


Make no mistake, some of this album is unlistenable ... But Cyrus is also too skilled of an artist to not place some beauty inside this madness.

Tiny Mix Tapes

The playful experimentalism and inherently subversive nature of Dead Petz is enjoyable (in a sickly-sweet way) throughout, yet it’s experimentation is akin to playing absent-mindedly with a shitty synthesizer iPhone app.


It’s ... undoubtedly the most interesting and substantial thing Cyrus has ever done, an absolute beast of an album with twenty three tracks that sometimes hit, sometimes miss and sometimes transcend either category and just become a portal to the weird.


It’s a messy, deeply personal move that finds Cyrus unabashedly putting forth an unapologetically full-fledged reinvention of self, one lacking in timidity and subtlety.

The Observer

What is most surprising, perhaps, is not that Miley Cyrus has self-released a goofy, addled sonic experiment, but that, in the post-label, internet age, more pop stars in her position haven’t.

A.V. Club
The album represents a brain dump of a discrete time in Cyrus’ life, an unfiltered collection of musical explorations and personal reflections. It’s an expression of pure creativity and yet another aspect of her progression into an artist committed to living her life in public, warts and all.

On Petz, the total lack of unpredictability is what betrays Cyrus’ true lack of imagination, her fatal flaw as a Youth Culture Messiah.

Consequence of Sound

If Bangerz saw an ex-Disney star reveling in her newfound freedom from long hair and adult supervision, then Dead Petz sees Cyrus revel in her own freedom from good taste.

Under The Radar

Dead Petz is just more mannered than it tries to appear on the surface, too long, and doesn't end up shaking up much of anything, let alone the artistic ambitions of Cyrus or The Flaming Lips.

It would be hard to imagine Cyrus and Coyne’s talents combining to worse results.
The 405

It's a whole 92 minutes of absolutely cringe, mindless, and flat out bad lyricism and music.

The Needle Drop
Miley Cyrus, the Flaming Lips, Mike Will Made It and more come together for an excruciating 90 minutes of neo-psychedelic pap.
yeah I actually think this is a 100........... lol
glitter nut
God this thing is just so fascinatingly horrendous. Like... who let this happen? Who in their right mind thought that this was a good idea? It's just... huh??

This may not make sense at all, but in my opinion, Miley Cyrus & Her Dead Petz is the Philosophy of the World of the 21st century. It's so stupid, it's so devoid of anything worthwhile, and you can't help but laugh at the fact that something like this was made and put into the world knowingly. Like... why would you put Fweaky and ... read more
A recommendation by @oh

Well, I'll give her this. It's long.

Honesty, I don't even hate this. The production is good, singing is good, vocals are kinda #cringe but i could get past that. Can't get past an hour of Miley Cyrus. Fuck I don't even think Miley Cyrus could get past an hour of Miley Cyrus.

If this was 30 minutes and the songs we're shorter I'd give it a 70 or something around that range.

But as it stands, no.
