I thought I'd never say this, but maybe Cyr is worst than Zeitgeist????? At least that 2007 album has a couple of really nice tracks and is some 20 minutes shorter that this bloated bore. To be honest, I do appreciate the Pumpkins' (Corgan's) ambition to return to double albums, especially with a sound not immediately associated with the band. However, I do wish that same conceptual ambition had translated into more exciting music. As it is, most of the tracks are too similar to make its 72 ... read more

While I was listening to Miley's covers of Heart of Glass and Zombie, I realized what was missing from Plastic Hearts: verve. There's an energy, a vitality, a certain rawness to the covers that is mostly lacking from the album itself. Of course, I never expected Plastic Hearts to be a full-on rock and roll record, but I wasn't expecting it to be this calculated either. You almost wish "Dead Petz Miley" came around and shook things up a little bit.

As for the good part, Midnight Sky ... read more

Younger Now may have been born of genuine feelings, but there's nothing in it that proves that.

The best thing about Miley Cyrus and her Dead Petz is that her record label had nothing to do with it. The worst thing about Miley Cyrus and her Dead Petz is that her record label had nothing to do with it.

Honestly, Karen Don't Be Sad and Space Bootz are among the best things Miley Cyrus has ever done. Sure, they're pretty ridiculous, but there's a sincerity to them that I find quite affecting. The same could be said of BB Talk and its "homegirl can't handle the fucking goo" shit. ... read more

It actually works best when Miley Cyrus picks up the torch left by 00's Gwen Stefani and goes totally bananas. SMS (Bangerz) is kitsch perfection and 4x4 doesn't make any sense, but that's precisely why it works so well. The other Pharrel Williams-produced track, #GETITRIGHT, is also pretty good, even though it's basically a beta version of Come Get It Bae. Among the ballads, Adore You and the ubiquitous Wrecking Ball are the clear standouts, avoiding stupid decisions (the whole Stand By Me ... read more
