    Noah doesn’t belt, and shows a sensitivity and vulnerability on these songs that belies her age. With 10 songs over just 33 minutes, it’s a wide-ranging, emotional ride that leaves the listener wanting more.

    With its attention to detail and exceptional vocal delivery, The Hardest Part is a debut for the ages. An album that is both culturally relevant and sonically refined to the point of timelessness.

    The Hardest Part contains some of the most genuine sounding country/pop that has been released in quite some time.

    The Hardest Part doesn’t reinvent the wheel. It knows what it is: undisguised, accessible songwriting pulsing with country lifeblood which manages to avoid being swallowed by its own ennui.

    Overall, the hardest part about listening to Noah Cyrus’ The Hardest Part is turning the album off.

    The Hardest Part is the result of her stepping away and figuring out who she is — and the songs she wrote during that time sound appealing even as they’re digging into knotty, complex emotions.

    It's a bland copy of Brandi Carlile's album. Can't create anything unique, only stealing
