When I saw Miley’s live performance of her new single, “Dooo It” from the VMA’s last month, I was surprised. It wasn’t the 30 or so Drag Queen back up dancers. It wasn’t the 1990’s fashion. It wasn’t the message of peace and smoking pot either. It was the fact that The Flaming Lips were her backing band. At first I wasn’t sure that it was them, but then frontman, Wayne Coyne, began shooting confetti bombs between Miley’s legs all over the crowd. At the end of the performance, Miley announced that her new album was available for free on soundcloud.com.

After researching the album, I discovered that The Flaming Lips were in fact her band on the album. I had to peep that shit out. I was less than impressed with Cyrus’ previous work with the band, but those were Beatles covers. I preferred the original tracks over the covers.

Miley Cyrus and her Dead Petz opens with the single, “Dooo It”; the song isn’t that good, and honestly a bit of an odd album opener. The lyrics are amateurish, and the music is just kind of whatever. The track that followed, “Karen Don’t be Sad” was refreshing. Miley’s vocals are soft and vulnerable, and the lyrics sincere. However, musically, it sounds like any other Flaming Lips song. Even the vocal harmonies are reminiscent of The Lips sound. The album continues on through 23 tracks, half of them really good, half of them really bad.

It sounds like Miley and the Lips just took a shit load of acid and recorded in their free time, then handed those tracks over to some producer to throw together in an album. Some parts of the album sound a bit over produced, while others sound under produced. But it also sounds like an honest attempt at making something personal.

The best songs on the album are the ones that sound like Flaming Lips songs with a female singer. My wife even went so far as to say, “it sounds like the Flaming Lips with a female singer.”

The album is hyper sexualized and a perfect example is the love ballad, “Bang Me Box” in which Miley pleads with her lover to ” Bang my box” repeatedly in the chorus.

Her vocals are strong though. Songs like, “Cyrus Skies” and “The Floyd Song (sunrise)” are fine examples of that. Even though my brother says that “even under all the over production she still sounds like shit.” I disagree.

Is the album a masterpiece? No.

Is it trash? No.

Honestly, I just really think the album is perfect for a night of snorting molly and being naked with some of your nearest and dearest.

    So, it’s music for 15 year olds. Sounds about right.

    every time someone brings up Miley, i think of that old Hollywood Minute on Weekend Update with David Spade where he has Madonna, Kevin Costner, and Billy Cyrus and asks everyone who will still have a career in a year to take a step forward. not so fast, Billy Ray…

  • Zed

    She probably thought about it, but realized that fake boobs would actually make her look classier.
