Wrecking Ball
We clawed, we chained, our hearts in vain We jumped, never asking why We kissed, I fell under your spell A love no one could deny Don't you ever say... See the rest of the song lyrics

    It's utterly fresh, a pop blitz from a hip-hop blueprint, and proof that Miley won't settle for just shocking us.

    Yet for all the attitude herehere's also "Do My Thang," a live-it-up club jam co-produced by will.i.am--Bangerz reveals that Cyrus isn't just a twerk-bot programmed to titillate (though there's always a need for one of those in pop music).
  3. 70
    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.
  4. 60
    The record is at its weakest when it’s more hoedown than hoes down.... Generally though, Cyrus’s fourth album is more--ahem--bangers than clangers.
  5. Bangerz is at times touching and at others a blast--but for a disappointingly large portion it’s as annoying as her detractors had hoped.

    The goofy, almost throwaway squaredance of a club song that is “4x4”, complete with some accordion work, might very well be album’s most memorable song: absurd, ridiculous, and actually playful in a way in which these other Bangerz aren’t.

    We get a record that is surprisingly dull, which alternates between syrupy, unremarkable ballads and uptempo tracks that sound like they’ve been assembled by a committee of consultants.

Pero ha hecho más de lo esperado: no sólo muestra una madurez y versatilidad sorprendentes, sino que se las arregla de maravilla para crear un recorrido de mil estilos musicales viniendo de raíces country.
    Bangerz es una poderosa muestra de cómo el pop cada vez es menos pop.

    This album is carefree, I can tell you that.

    Miley Cyrus' new outing, Bangerz, is a solid album and is different from her Pop/Country albums. It introduces more genres and each song is different from each other.

    When you listen near the end of the album though, it feels dragged along and rushed. The first half of the album would have been fine on its own, as the other half is full of awkward songs with terrible production.
