Idolator Reviews CBT Album

A handful of songs from Miley Cyrus’ upcoming album Can’t Be Tamed surfaced today, and as Miley forewarned us, they are indeed a Party in the R.A.V.E. Check out two dance tracks below, “Robot” and “Who Owns My Heart”, as well as her cover of Poison’s “Every Rose Has Its Thorn.” (At least now we know what she got out of her May-December friendship with Bret Michaels.)

Miley Cyrus – “Robot”

For a song called “Robot” (which we definitely think should be a single), we’re absolutely shocked that it isn’t capsizing with Auto-Tune. It’s actually a pretty catchy, empowering rock track that we’re betting has a very personal connection to Cyrus.

“Stand here, sell this, and hit your mark… Stop telling me to be part of this big machine… I’m not your robot, I’m just me,” Miley sings.

Hmm, I wonder who this “big machine” could be—Disney? The music industry? Whatever it is, we’re betting it’s whatever forced Miley to record pop music despite the fact she doesn’t listen to it. We think somebody like Allison Iraheta would have the powerful, gritty vocals to pull this track off a little bit more convincing than Miley, but the tune itself it pretty good.

Miley Cyrus – “Who Owns My Heart”

Wow. This is definitely the most straight-up electro song we’ve heard from Cyrus so far. In the song, Miley tries to figure out if she really likes somebody she meets at a club, or if the music is to blame for her happy feelings. (Hmm, if Miley were any older, we’d almost swear this sounds like this song is more about the effects of ecstasy use than MGMT’s “It’s Working.”) We’re enjoying this version, but we think an extended club remix would make it even better.

Miley Cyrus – “Every Rose Has Its Thorn”

Our first reaction? Meh. It’s an unexciting midtempo jam with an extra drum beat than the original 80s track, and it comes off just like album filler. At least now with Bret Michaels back in the news, recording a cover of this song is a bit more relevent than it would have been otherwise.

What do you guys think of these Miley tracks? Are you digging her new musical direction or do you wish she would stay goody-two shoes Hannah Montana forever? Personally, we could definitely picture ourselves rocking out to these tracks while giving an inappropriate lap dance to a 44-year old man.

Thx @SmileyWithMiley and @MemiSupportUK!
