Album Review: Miley Cyrus "Can't Be Tamed"

Miley Cyrus has definitely grown up right in front of our faces. For me, I saw Miley Cyrus on the very first episode of Hannah Montana when the show first premiered. Ever since then, I have been a huge fan of this girl.

Once her new album Can't Be Tamed finally arrived, I was more than ready to start listening to her amazing music. What I love about her music and the record company is that she has been given creative freedom. She's not just given a track and the producers say "You have to sing these lyrics we've written like this."

She personally writes her own songs from different situations and let the world listen. Fans relate to her songs because boys and girls around her age are going through similar situations, and it feels great to have the story told every chance they get.

When Can't Be Tamed was released, I already understood the direction she was going. If you have seen teenagers around her age (just like me), you will know they are going through adolescent times she is talking about. We all have those times where we wanted to act out and be free of different types of discipline. Miley Cyrus is becoming an adult soon, and she is singing about what she's feeling around that time. When I started listening to the tracks, I could already relate to some of them.

I'll talk about my top ranked songs for the album.

1. Liberty Walk- 10/10
The moment I heard this track, it has become one of my favorite tracks from Miley Cyrus. Not only do I love the pop rock beat, but I am definitely touched by the lyrics. In the beginning, I thought this song was about becoming what you want to be in life. It's kind of like what I felt when I heard Can't Be Tamed. Then when I found out this song was about leaving an abusive relationship, my respect from Miley went up another level.

2. Who Owns My Heart 8/10

3. Can't Be Tamed 10/10
You all know how I feel about this song. We all reach that point in our life where we grow out of our cage, and it's now time to let ourselves loose. That's exactly how I felt when I heard this song. With this song debuting at #8 on the Billboard Hot 100, this song will always be remembered in Miley's catalog.

4. Every Rose Has It's Thorn 10/10
I will admit. In the beginning, I was angry at Miley for choosing to cover this song. Then I took that chance and listened to the track. In the first chorus, I fell in love with this. Days later, I found out that Poison rejected so many artists for trying to cover their song. So you got the approval from Bret Michaels, then you got the approval from all of us.

5. Two More Lonely People 5/10

6. Forgiveness and Love 7/10

7. Permanent December 7/10

8. Stay 7/10

9. Scars 8/10

10. Take Me Alon 7/10

11. Robot 5/10

12. My Heart Bents For Love 10/10
No words can express how much I love this song. So I won't try to get into details on that. All I can say is that it is a perfect present for her friend that Miley recorded it for.
