OMG. That basically sums up my reaction to hearing Miley Cyrus' new CD, Bangerz. First off, I have recently been introduced to the fact that journalists sometimes get to hear new music before it actually comes out (yay, perks!) because I've been working with the lovely people at UMusicians on some features, reviews, interviews, etc. In this case Miley has actually let people listen to the music free on a stream on iTunes, so either way all of her songs are out in the open. But, whaaaaaaaaaaaaat is with some of her lyrics? Don't get me wrong, this CD is actually really good. But songs like 4x4 are ruined by lyrics like "Drivin' so fast I'm bout to piss on myself." The tone of the song is actually real good but...what's up with that Miley?
This is basically my reaction to most of the album:
However, it seems for every couple of creepy lyriced sex-fests of songs, there are at least two good songs. #GETITRIGHT (which is 100% about sexy-time), is actually really good, and reminds me of a female version of Blurred Lines. FU is a good song as well, it really shows Miley's spunk, and of course singles We Can't Stop and Wrecking Ball. The emotion in some of her songs show her real talent, while some you can tell are just...hit and miss party songs.
If you guys want to hear my professionalistical (yep, just made up that word) review and analysis of BANGERZ (Deluxe Version), I will be reviewing it for y'all on UMusicians and it shall be up soon.
What do you think of BANGERZ and will you be buying it for Ms. Miley C?
