Review Round Up: She is Coming by Miley Cyrus

The singer is back with a brand new EP- but how has it gone down with critics?

Rolling Stone: *** “Just when Miley was looking like the sane one, she’s back with a new EP that’s sure to irritate everyone who’d hoped her writhing, wrecking-ball days were in the past. She Is Coming is an unkempt little EP that tries to cram her wild oeuvre, from molly to Mark Ronson, into just six songs.”

Pitchfork: “For a six-track EP, She Is Coming is remarkably repetitive, but it does manage a few OK spots.”

Consequence of Sound: “Cyrus has carved out fresh pop real estate for herself, somewhere between Pink, The Weeknd, and the country dress-up of Lady Gaga. The individual songs are never far from radio mainstream, but Cyrus shows good taste in collaborators and a fresh sense of identity. She’s had successes before. But never rarely the successes felt so natural.”

The Guardian: **** “Rather than seeking a new identity to disappear into, this Cyrus is playful, tongue-in-cheek, and, most importantly, making some of the best pop songs she has made in years.”

NME: **** “like Cyrus, it’s shameless, strange and supremely entertaining.” “She Is Coming is an encouraging step toward embracing everything Miley is — the hearty country singer, the restless sampler of sounds, the sort of overbearing pop star, and the outspoken queer advocate — all at once.”

Slant Magazine: ** 1/2 “Cyrus finds her groove when she doesn’t try so hard, as on “D.R.E.A.M.,” a hazy confessional that, true to its title, is dreamy enough to forgive its puerile conflation of chemical and romantic euphoria.’

She is Coming is available to download now.
