    Dead Petz offers an uncensored look at Miley Cyrus’ id and it’s a distillation of an artist’s soul that is both rare and wonderful, delivered so effortlessly off-the-cuff that it may occasionally sound haphazard. But there’s always an exacting method to her freewheeling madness.

    Her latest has a surplus of them [uniformly great songs]. It suggests Cyrus, at 22, has figured out how to present her views in a way that’s still powerful but also musically interesting and cohesive.

    Ultimately, there’s something genuinely courageous and admirable about Cyrus’s ambitions with Miley Cyrus and Her Dead Petz. Sure, it’s way too long, and flamboyantly self-indulgent; but it’s free, and it’s fun.
  4. The album could use a hefty dose of editing, annoying to any listener--unless, of course, they’re too stoned to care.

    The playful experimentalism and inherently subversive nature of Dead Petz is enjoyable (in a sickly-sweet way) throughout, yet it’s experimentation is akin to playing absent-mindedly with a shitty synthesizer iPhone app.

    Miley Cyrus & Her Dead Petz ends up a collection of fleeting engaging moments sandwiched between a slew of half-formed musical ideas.

    The resulting effort is a complete mess of an already insipid project yelling to be accepted as otherwise.

    Different, unusual, insane... "Her Dead Petz" shows a vulnerability of Miley never seen before, becoming one of the best works of this year, by far...

    Los sonidos psicodélicos suenan como algo en lo que ella trabajó fuerte, y las letras describen las situaciones que Miley pasó durante esosLos sonidos psicodélicos suenan como algo en lo que ella trabajó fuerte, y las letras describen las situaciones que Miley pasó durante esos tiempos. Tiene variaciones de pop, rock, e incluso hip-hop, todas orientadas a sonidos alternativos y valoro el hecho de que es su primer álbum en éste género, y creo que fue un acierto. Expand

    Most of the critics are missing out on a terrific album. Glad to see unanimous high scores from the general public. I was not a fan prior toMost of the critics are missing out on a terrific album. Glad to see unanimous high scores from the general public. I was not a fan prior to Bangerz. Bangerz started turning my head a bit with her music direction, but didn't completely win me over... then I started hearing about her hanging with Wayne, reading interviews, seeing interviews, and began to see some serious faerie power blossom. She was beginning to speak out in positivity for others, be herself, and start the homeless organization for LGBTQ youth. Officially, my head was turned. Intuitively, I began to feel that she was on the verge of her best chapter of music, art and creativity. I started believing that her next album was going to be a triumph. Once I heard the live debut of "Tiger Dreams" that became more validated. Suffice it to say, all of this culminated to this week with her new album drop and it is EVERYTHING I hoped it would be and soooo much more. Risky, garage-y, unpolished yet polished, vulnerable, real, uncensored, free-spirited, imperfectly perfect, awake, conscious... Miley has just stepped to the leader of the pop pack for me, personally. The fact that she has the courage to believe in and stand up for her own musical integrity when all her handlers were freaking out about this new direction says a lot about her. Her joy and humor and passion comes through the music and reflects the last two years of what I have seen in the press. She isn't a hater, all I see is love vibes... major faerie vibes. This messy pop masterpiece encompasses all of that and more. It is like an hour and a half headtrip totally worth taking... and it ends in a strange, oddly healing space, as well. It's cray-cray and weird yet immensely addictive and melodic. I can't get enough of this album. It is currently my #1 pop album of the year and #2 overall best album of the year regardless of genre. Miley has officially won a new fan. I knew in all of my being this was coming and what a pure delight to experience it manifest. She is an inspiration for us all to not be afraid to be ourselves in a life-affirming, multi-dimensional, uplifting, liberative fashion. Go, go, Miley! Stay true to you and this path is going to get really exciting. It has only just begun! This is a gift.

    "The world can still be beautiful, but that part's up to you." - Sums it all up for me.

    Peace, love, light, faerie power!

We can listen to her and really feel what she's singing, because she's actually feeling it too. It's a good trip, mentally and phisically if you want to dance with it too, Cyrus makes contemporary statements and sings without any wall or prejudgement about Drugs, Love, Planet's health and even all his Pets. A very personal, touching and at the same time experimental album, that don't mean to fit in charts or everybody's mouth, but in the heart of who listen to it. Expand
