Miley already reinvented herself a couple of times throughout her career. We’ve seen her grow from Hannah Montana to Can’t Be Tamed, Bangerz, and Younger Now and saw an artist searching for her identity. With Plastic Hearts, she comes to terms with her rock sound and indicates that she’s far from being written off.
She’ll rock you!
While 2020 was the year where disco had its big return, Miley goes for a completely different sound. It’s still inspired by the ’70s and ’80s but instead of funky synthesizers and groovy basslines, Miley goes for thrilling guitar riffs and drums. “WTF Do I Know” immediately sets the record straight, Miley is completely back in business!
The best thing about Plastic Hearts is the diversity of vibes she’s serving while the album still feels like a coherent concept. “Hate Me”, “High”, and “Angels Like You” are a bit slower compared to “Plastic Hearts” and “Gimme What I Want”, but the contrast between those songs is so essential because they make it even more appealing to listen.
