Miley Cyrus :: Breakout

After everything that has happened in Miley Cyrus' life in the last year, Breakout seems like a pretty good title for her second album. A little older and certainly not as angelic as a lot of people thought a couple years ago, Breakout could have been the perfect statement that Cyrus was breaking out of the Disney mold now occupied by Selena Gomez and Demi Lovato. Unfortunately, the songs don't work that way. The album's title track sounds like an old Avril Lavigne song, and though See You Again was a catchy single even non-fans could enjoy, there might not be a song like that here. The infectious Fly on the Wall, with its raw guitar riffs and inventive hook, is probably the best offering and the green-conscious Wake Up America is well-timed. Basically Miley is stuck in Disneyland, having a lot of fun, but she's still not quite old enough to enjoy the really good rides. She'll get there eventually.

Fun Facts

  • Breakout is the first album by Miley Cyrus without any reference to the Hannah Montana character.
  • Miley co-wrote all of the album's songs except for the two covers.
  • The album features covers of Cheyenne Kimball's These Four Walls, and Cyndi Lauper's Girls Just Wanna Have Fun.

    CSS :: Donkey

    CSS emerged as a strange new sound from South America and their mix of guitar and electro helped to keep a new movement going. Now that they've had some success though, this album seems a little less hungry, and a little more produced. Following up a killer debut album is always a heavy burden, but Donkey does pretty well overall. Believe Achieve could be a preview of pop from the future, while Beautiful Song is exactly that. CSS fans love Lovefoxx's wonderfully strange vocal stylings, and she keeps it coming on Donkey. The beats are also pump worthy, even though few songs approach the status of the tracks you've heard on iTunes commercials. I guess that's not the worst thing though, is it?

    Fun Facts

  • Three months before the album's release, bassist Iracema Trevisan left the band.
  • CSS recorded 17 songs in Sao Paulo, Brazil, and then selected 11 for the album.
  • The iTunes album features the bonus track Hit and Run.
