"Miley Cyrus, better known as teen pop sensation "Hannah Montana" does a wonderful job in this CD, and it is escpecially good for her first album.
I can relate to several of the songs. And even even though most people can't relate to passages for example, like, "pictures and autoghraphs/you get your face in all the magazines/the best part is that, you get to be whoever you wanna be!" or "Half the time I've got my name in lights, the other half I'm by your side", Miley is sending the message that celeberties aren't any different from any of us, they're just regular people. Also, in the few songs like that, you CAN relate to most of the song. Miley is extremely talented and amazing, and also a fantastic rolemodel. She is a Christian, and in one of her interviews, she tells that her and her mom's motto is "Modest is Hottest", and she does stay true to that motto. So I say, Keep up the good work, Miley, and don't ever change!
The ONLY reason I gave this CD 4 stars and not 5 is because at the end of the CD, there were 4 songs from other stars, and I don't think she needed them there. I do enjoy "Find yourself in You." by Everlife. The other 3 singers and songs I wasn't so crazy about, and I think that they are not very good rolemodels, unlike Miley. I mean, maybe for some reason, they had to be there, but no matter what, I still say that this is an awesome CD!!!!!!!!!!"
Where's all the creativity gone?

"I laugh at those who praise this for being things that it is really completely devoid of. Such as; emotion, originality, and creativity. I also laugh at those praising her lyrics. Conor Oberst was around her age when he started writing (fantastic) lyrics for Commander Venus. But no one cares. Because the markets now driven by tweenage girls who are completely immune to the emotion and sincerity put into other debut albums like the already mentioned Oberst with Bright Eyes' Lifted, Or the Story is in the Soil, Keep Your Ear to the Ground. Or even The Arcade Fire's Funeral.
She can't sing either. Or act. If you want good acting and singing look no further than a man named Glen Hansard. Who started busking on the streets of Dublin when he was just 13. His voice really sounded as wonderful as did back then as it does now.
1/2 star for enough production for people to avoid the realizations of this albums huge pitfalls. Which is really just another reason for me to hate it that much more. It may sound terrible, but at least it sounds clean. If they would've tried to go into the gutbusting squeal of Guitar Wolf I just may have wanted to kill myself."
Fun for kids
