Shallow and simple, the lyrics are about the dark side of love and hating your ex as well as the pleasures of careless partying. However, there are a few tracks on the album that seem sincere and well-constructed. As empty as the lyrics may be and as dull as the production may appear, Cyrus’s vocals are surprisingly good. Each track accentuates a different quality in her voice, showing that she isn’t as talentless as many assume.
The returning pop star has been making a great effort to advertise her album. She will not be rewarded for enthusiastic campaigning but will rather be judged on the music. As educational as this experience may be for Cyrus, fans can only hope that she learns from her recent mistakes and that her next offering is a better one.
