  • Summary: The second release for the Canadian singer is described as the second half of his debut album--the first half being the November 2009 release "My World."

  1. Positive: 4 out of 8

  1. The 16-year-old's follow-up to last November's "My World" shrewdly elevates him from a fleeting teen phenom into an evolving pop artist.
  2. Bieber makes all the right, charming moves for a teen, and he covers all the bases. The dance-pop songs are light on the ears yet memorable; the unrequited material sounds deeply felt; the ballads have all the necessary us-against-the-world teen-love dramatics.
  3. This full-length sequel, My World 2.0, in stores March 23, won't likely affect any adults not in the direct blast radius of Bieber's target range. That said, the kid seems to know what he's doing.
  4. My World 2.0, his debut full-length album, is far sharper than it needs to be, an amiable collection of age-appropriate panting with intermittent bursts of misplaced precociousness.
  5. Those who dismiss Bieber out of hand are missing out on a seriously good pop record, one that mines vintage teen-pop themes but plays like a primer on 2010-model bubblegum.
  6. It effects a musical anachronism, albeit a catchy one, but in this sped-up recycling moment all styles all at once are grist for the mill.
  7. My World 2.0 is effective and innocent Top 40 material, if not terribly inventive.

It contains songs that we all love to get up and dance and sing to such as 'Baby'. If you dont find your inner child self, then you need to lighten up and stop being so serious. This album puts you in a great mood. His newest album 'Believe' is the album of 2012, get it. Expand

    Okay..."My World 2.0" is the same thing with "My World". Just because you added several songs doesn't really make a difference...

    The chords are stolen from generations of other pop songwriters (as are some of the lyrics), the production is stolen from generations ofThe chords are stolen from generations of other pop songwriters (as are some of the lyrics), the production is stolen from generations of other pop producers, the meaning and purpose of the songs is completely ripped from millions of repetitive imbeciles with only love (or sex) on their minds. And I see others on this site complaining that "IT'S FOR TEENAGE GIRLS, WAAH". Well get a sense of perspective; good music can appeal to anyone of any age. That's why people like the Beatles and Queen and Coldplay were so successful, they had universal appeal. Targeting one extremely easily pleased audience does not make Beiber's albums good, and he deserves to sink into obscurity - which he eventually will. Expand

    Sings on key most of the time. But his voice is still too high for my taste and most of the songs are extremely repetitive.

    More bland, manufactured pop drivel.... Serious overuse of autotune.
