In what feels like a comeback album (implying that Miley Cyrus was great to begin with but Bangerz is definitely underappreciated within the context of what pop artists can do to push boundaries), the former Disney star wears her influences on her sleeve from 80s arena rock and pop country that her father was more well known for, to more modern dance pop, to create something that everyone can somewhat enjoy. However, to me it felt like when she tried to do more of the latter, especially on Prisoner with Dua Lipa, that it's more trend hopping than inspired, since basically every other pop artist this year has done some form of 80s worship, it's worked well at times but here it kind of comes across as something I've already heard before, but regardless, Plastic Hearts is a sincere attempt and I'm looking forward to what Miley has to offer next time around.
