Album Review

Technically, Breakout is Miley Cyrus' second album, but her first was part of the two-disc set Hannah Montana 2/Meet Miley Cyrus, which attempted to capitalize on Cyrus' huge popularity as The Disney Channel's pop star in disguise and establish her as a real pop star under her own name. Though she scored a tween-pop hit with "See You Again," the songs Cyrus recorded as herself on Meet Miley Cyrus weren't significantly different than her Hannah Montana fare. She takes another step toward having her own pop identity with Breakout, the first album credited to Miley Cyrus alone. Breakout is possibly the most generic title this set of songs could have, but it expresses the album's purpose nicely: Miley sheds the confines of her Hannah Montana image for an identity that is just as stylized and calculated as her alter ego. As with all Disney music, nothing has been left to chance. Breakout hits all the marks that a 2008 pop album should, right down to a dance remix and a song about saving the environment; cunningly, "Wake Up America" is one of the album's catchiest moments. These songs were written and produced by committee, designed to present the feisty, carefree Miley (the title track's schoolgirl rebellion) and the sensitive Miley ("The Driveway," "Goodbye") to the widest audience possible. Truth be told, these sides of Miley still aren't drastically different from Hannah Montana's music — "Full Circle," with its bubbly melody and playful lyrics, plays like a slightly more sophisticated Hannah Montana single. Cyrus' sound is still a mix of Avril Lavigne-esque sass and Michelle Branch-like vulnerability, served with a bright sheen borrowed from new wave, which she nods to with an oddly rushed, strings-driven cover of Cyndi Lauper's "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun." Cyrus' voice is deeper and rougher than when she's singing as Hannah, and there are a few more reflective moments here than there would be on her other project, but only a handful of songs truly break out from the Montana mold. "Bottom of the Ocean" is so polished and restrained that it could be a hit on triple-A radio, while "7 Things" is a twangy, clever piece of love-hate pop that feels descended from Shania Twain's flirty mix of rock and country. The controlling boyfriend putdown "Fly on the Wall" goes in a completely different direction, playing like a G-rated version of Britney Spears' "Toxic" with fuzzed-out guitars and keyboards that lead into girlishly snotty vocals. Even if these songs are derivative of much more established pop divas, they provide clues to the kind of company Cyrus aims to keep. And while Breakout isn't as much of a breakthrough as it could be, it still moves Miley closer to an identity and career outside of Hannah.

Customer Reviews

Miley's coming through!

Miley Cyrus has broken out- literally! Long gone is Hannah Montana and Miley is here with an AMAZING album! Every track shows growth and maturity and while the music is still tween friendly, it is truly MUCH more grown up. 1.Breakout- A great summer anthem! 2.7 Things- First single, classic pop/rock with a cool country twang. 3.The Driveway- Amazingly catchy pop/rock track. 4.Girls Just Wanna Have Fun- Great remake for letting loose and dancing along to. 5.Full Circle- Another catchy track, with more of a pop/country feel. Amazing! 6.Fly On the Wall- A new darker, edgy, sexy Miley. I like it! This track is the best of the album. 7.Bottom of the Ocean- A soothing ballad, extremely relatable. I feel the emotion in her voice. 8.Wake Up America- Miley encourages us to take care of the environment! I believe she really means it, she's really convincing. 9.These Four Walls- A nice acoustic track, cover of Cheyenne Kimball. 10.Simple Song- A great song about hearing the simple sounds in life :D Very Inspiring. 11.Goodbye- A beautiful ballad with great emotional vocals from Miley. 12.See You Again (Rock Mafia Remix)- A great song made greater! The remix adds more fun to this #1 single. Overall this album is a must have, love her or hate her. She is a great rolemodel and continues to inspire me with each day. Love you Miley! She truly brokeout and I have a feeling this is just the beginning. However, this won't be breaking out of my CD player anytime soon lol :D BUY IT!!! ~Mr.Britney~

Here We Go Again

Alas, Miley Cyrus has put out her "mature" album. This album is full of "mature" songs tackling "mature" issues such as Global Warming. It's also full of "mature" lines like "... if you text it, I'll delete it" and "... your friends, their jerks when you act like them." MIND BLOWING!

She shoots...she misses

Miley just doesnt know when to stop these vocals are horendous! Ok the lyrics are great but seriously her voice! She completley sucked on GirlsJustWannaHaveFun its horrible and jerky.

Years Active: '00s, '10s

Miley Cyrus became an overnight sensation in 2006 as the lead of the Disney Channel television series Hannah Montana, but as the years went on, she established herself as a pop star in her own right. Overnight popularity wasn't a new thing for the Cyrus family; Miley's father, country singer Billy Ray Cyrus, went from obscurity to stardom in a few short months in 1992, when "Achy Breaky Heart" became a crossover hit. The success of "Achy Breaky Heart" was hardly the only memorable event for Billy...
