Album Review

Next to the High School Musical phenomenon, Hannah Montana is probably Disney's most popular musical act of the late 2000s. Unlike High School Musical's all-star cast, however, Hannah is just one girl — well, actually, two: even though it's Miley Cyrus who gives a face and a voice to Hannah Montana's schoolgirl-by-day, pop star-by-night adventures, she's in danger of being overshadowed by the role she plays. The first Hannah Montana soundtrack tried to differentiate Hannah from the young lady responsible for her existence by including a handful of tracks credited to Miley Cyrus; Hannah Montana 2/Meet Miley Cyrus goes one better and gives Cyrus and her alter ego one disc each. Hannah still gets top billing, however, and the first disc feels like the second volume of almost any soundtrack — it's not bad, but it's also not as interesting as what came before it. "Nobody's Perfect" and "Make Some Noise" sound like less-inspired versions of the shiny, synth-driven pop and strummy acoustic ballads that made the first Hannah Montana soundtrack a hit. However, there are some songs that don't feel like also-rans, most of which dig deeper into Hannah's new wave influences: "We Got the Party"'s fizzy keyboards and chugging guitars sound a lot like Kim Wilde's "Kids in America"; "Life's What You Make It" sets bright, cheerleadery vocals to a riff that sounds like a reconfigured "My Sharona"; and "Rock Star"'s glittery pop fantasy recalls Avril Lavigne's new wave pastiche without any of the faux-punk attitude. "Old Blue Jeans" is another standout, a danceable track that shows that this volume of the Hannah Montana soundtracks actually does groove-oriented songs better than the original album did. Moments like these balance out the watered-down and downright schmaltzy songs, such as "One in a Million," a ballad with a twinkly, earnest piano melody that sounds like equal parts of Vanessa Carlton's "A Thousand Miles" and Bruce Hornsby's "That's Just the Way It Is" fused together. Even though the title Hannah Montana 2/Meet Miley Cyrus seems a little self-defeating, it's true that the songs Cyrus sang as herself on the first soundtrack weren't especially memorable, so in a way her part of the set is a second chance to make a first impression. This time, the sound and the songs are better — several tracks, such as "GNO (Girls' Night Out)" and "I Miss You," could easily be Hannah Montana songs, but Cyrus' singing is lower and throatier, and the arrangements are more organic and rock-oriented. She gets to sing the soundtrack's best song, an I'm-so-over-him number called "East Northumberland High," as herself, and dabbles in sounds that would be too eclectic for Hannah: "Let's Dance" has Latin dance-pop flair that is edgy compared to the Hannah Montana sound, while "Clear" pairs Cyrus' twangy voice with a laid-back reggae rhythm, making for a slightly strange but sweet combination. Hannah Montana 2/Meet Miley Cyrus would be just as strong as the first album if it were a single disc combining the best songs from Hannah's and Miley's albums, but Hannah Montana fans will no doubt enjoy having more music from their favorite fictional pop star and the real young woman who portrays her.

Customer Reviews

Grown Up/Childish

Miley's side of the album is like interveiwing her, if you listen close enough you can learn a lot about her.Meet Miley Cyrus!!=D Also, it's more grown up music than she's ever done, and I think it really does show a different side of her, and is way different from any music I've ever heard.The Hannah side are songs from the series, and some are sorta grown up, but their still in the children's section, so I really like that it shows two sides of her.Overall, I give this album 5 stars and is DEFINATLY THE top 20 on my play list!!Great job Miley!!

You dont want to miss this!

Hannah Montana's first cd was great so I didnt know how she would be able to pull off a second one just like it. Instead she tops the first one! Especially with 10 tracks from Hannah and 10 tracks from Miley it gives the cd a different vibe. Miley has prooven that she can sing and make some really good songs. My favorite songs on the cd are: 1) We got the Party 2) Nobodys Perfect 3) Life's What you Make It 4) One in a Million 5) See You Again 6) Start All Over 7) G.N.O. 8) Make Some Noise As you can see that is 8 songs!! And the other ones are awesome too! This is one cd you definitely want to own. Support Hannah Montana/Miley Cyrus because she deserves it..shes awesome!!

Ew

These songs are so not original. She totally turned into a hard pop singer. That is so not her!
