Hannah Montana [Bonus Track/Bonus DVD]

All Music Guide - Heather Phares
One of the most appealing Disney pop confections in some time, the Hannah Montana soundtrack features the show's star Miley Cyrus singing cute, well-written songs that nod to teen pop, rock and country. Tracks like "Just Like You" borrow every gimmick that producers like the Matrix have perfected in the early 2000s: acoustic guitars that give way to big, crunchy electric ones, shiny synths and backing vocals that sound like they were sung into a megaphone. However, Hannah Montana has some sharper-than-average songwriting going for it, especially on "If We Were a Movie"'s clever, catchy chorus: "If we were a movie"/You'd be the right guy/And I'd be the best friend that ...

One of the most appealing Disney pop confections in some time, the Hannah Montana soundtrack features the show's star Miley Cyrus singing cute, well-written songs that nod to teen pop, rock and country. Tracks like "Just Like You" borrow every gimmick that producers like the Matrix have perfected in the early 2000s: acoustic guitars that give way to big, crunchy electric ones, shiny synths and backing vocals that sound like they were sung into a megaphone. However, Hannah Montana has some sharper-than-average songwriting going for it, especially on "If We Were a Movie"'s clever, catchy chorus: "If we were a movie"/You'd be the right guy/And I'd be the best friend that you'd fall in love with in the end." Songs like "The Best of Both Worlds" allude to Hannah Montana's double life as a pop star and a regular girl transported from Nashville to Malibu ("This Is the Life"'s soaring country-pop sounds decidedly more like the former city than the latter), and the themes of having fun, being yourself and following your dreams wind throughout the album, especially on the spunky, new-wavey girl power anthem "I Got Nerve." Fittingly, though, Cyrus is the star of Hannah Montana. Her voice is surprisingly rich for a girl in her early teens, and she has more personality than many pop starlets her age, especially those in the Disney stable. Aside from the slight stumble of "Pumpin' Up the Party" -- a groove that ends up going nowhere -- the album does a great job of showcasing her charismatic vocals with strong melodies. Cyrus also performs a track as herself, "I Learned from You," a duet with her dad, Billy Ray, that has an earnest vibe that's more Vanessa Carlton than Hannah Montana. The soundtrack is rounded out with a few like-minded songs, such as Everlife's "Find Yourself in You" (which seems to be the template for Hannah's rock-edged pop) and the sparkly power pop of the Click Five's "Pop Princess." Hannah Montana is a sweet, starry-eyed, utterly charming soundtrack. [The 2007 edition comes packaged with a bonus DVD.]

    Feel good CD + kid friendly

    This is a great CD. Hannah Montana is a pretty good artist her songs are fun and feel-good without inappropriateness lyrics or bubble-gum shallowness. They are just simple, happy songs, mostly used on the show or reflect the themes from the show. Kids really love the show and I much rather my cousins jamming along to HM than wanting to listen to songs that have to be edited for content first. She is a good role model for kids and her voice is great. I took my cousins to her concert and she is an all around good performer as well.

    New style = Great!

    This song is amazing. It really brings out a new side of Hannah Montana's music. She not only has pop music but she also has a dance remix/hip hop style to her music too. "Nobody's Perfect" is deffinitely a song that has a great message for all girls..young and old. And BERRYSTRIPE.. you have no idea what you are talking about. "The best of both worlds" is Hannah Montana's theme song, not a song that is even suppose to come close to relating to us. All of her other songs are songs for young girls to just dance and feel good about themselves. Hannah's music gives everyone a good feeling and her voice is awesome. She had to go through a lot of years of rehearsals and auditions to even get the part of Hannah Montana. So duuhh she has a good voice. It's just more country-tuned because she's from Tennessee. It's amazing!!! Great work Miley!!

    She Rocks!

    Miley Cyrus is the best singer! Some people may think she stinks but those people are not really listening to the meanings! Nobody's Perfect has such a great meaning! The title is so true! Nobody is perfect and she made a great song about it! Buy this CD and you will NOT be dissapointed! Don't listen to those people who say she can't sing because I bet she is way better that you will ever be! Get over it people! She rocks!

    Kinda dispointing

    I liked the orginal cd WAY better.The bonus song was no bonus.It sounds like Ashley Tisdale is singing it only in Miley Cyrus as Hannah Montana voice!!She sings better,when shes being herself,not Hannah Montana.

    Ok....

    She just can't sing, and her songs have no good meanings whatsoever. Her voice is soooo very annoying, it sounds like a person talking to music. Grrr. Her songs only relate to her, not us! I mean, I really don't care if she gets the "best of both worlds" we don't have "best of both worlds" so y would a song like that matter to us? "I've Got Nerve" jsut plain gets on my "nerves", I don't care if she has "nerve", we already know she does because she wouldn't be singing onstage if she didn't. "Pumpin Up the Party" is just an annoying song,it goes absolutely nowhere!!!!!!!!Once again, I don't give a care if she "pumps up the party", because I wouldn't be there to see it, because, she would be at a movie star's party. i wish somehow I could give it a 0 star rating, but I can't. And if i could, I would only give it a 1 star because she is my cousin's fave singer.

    Buy This!

    This song CAN relate to you, and everyone else. She is trying her best.Hannah Montana is right. Nobody's Perfect. EveryonE out there her dad is BILLY RAY CYRUS!!! If you were her yOu would sing songs like that to. She is not the next Hillary Duff or Lindsay Lohan. She is her own person . I belive she has the character and a great voice to all young people. She is not taking drugs or saying curse words. I can understand how she is feeling. If you only saw her life you would see how it is to be a caring person like her. She is a good girl and a funny person. Like she said we're all the same people aren't we? She is a human I am a human You are a human God is a human BELIVE.ACHIVE.DON'TDECIVE.
