  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. Despite the clunky moments, there’s ample proof that Team Bieber know exactly what they’re doing and who they’re talking to. As you’d expect, it’s the ballads that hit the hardest.
  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. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. My World 2.0 is effective and innocent Top 40 material, if not terribly inventive.

    I wish there was a score below a zero, but there isn't.

    People who gave it an 8 or higher. I rate based on the music i hear, I don't care what his age is, this is a kid who has little talent. People who gave it an 8 or higher.

His constant moaning of ohhhhh after every word is quite annoying. terribly composed even with the glassed over studio vocals. Full Review »

    It is so depressive to see how quality in music has been downgraded so much in the recent years, in this album, songs have repetitive lyrics, It is so depressive to see how quality in music has been downgraded so much in the recent years, in this album, songs have repetitive lyrics, stupid choruses and senseless meaning of lyrics. Even seeing the album cover makes one feel bad. Full Review »
