“Livin’ two lives is a bit of bizarre,” sings Miley Cyrus as Hannah Montana on her signature monitor, “The Better of Each Worlds.” Hannah Montana: The Film and its soundtrack attempt to current the most effective of many worlds — pop and nation, California and Tennessee, Disney and non-Disney artists — and it is also a bit of bizarre. Given the massive success of the TV sequence and the live performance film, it was inevitable that there can be a big-screen Hannah Montana story, however it’s virtually uncanny how the film’s storyline, which includes Hannah having to decide on between pop stardom and her “actual” life as common nation woman Miley Stewart, echoes Disney’s efforts to separate Cyrus‘ stardom from Montana‘s. This tug of struggle of personas additionally exhibits up within the film’s music: initially, Montana‘s music was primarily based on the pop of previous Disney queens like Britney and Christina (with a smidgen of Avril Lavigne), however songs like “Let’s Get Loopy,” which makes a beat from paparazzi flashbulbs, and “The Good Life,” a sugar-coated celebration of Gucci purses and Prada sneakers, sound extra like fizzy caricatures of pop songs than ever. Tellingly, the most effective songs that Cyrus sings on the soundtrack have her personal identify on them — apart from the goofy “Hoedown Throwdown,” which feels extra like a parody of down-home enjoyable than a tribute to it. Cyrus‘ husky twang sounds much more pure, extra all the way down to earth and grown-up, on songs like “Do not Stroll Away,” “Dream,” and “The Climb,” all of which recall the Shania Twain-lite of her debut album, Breakout. This Nashville really feel dominates on Hannah Montana: The Film, from “Butterfly Fly Away,” a treacly duet between Miley and her dad Billy Ray, to the inclusion of songs from nation stars in an try so as to add extra authenticity to Hannah‘s typically suffocating world. Billy Ray‘s “Again to Tennessee” matches in easily with an acoustic model of Rascal Flatts‘ witty “Backwards” (though their “Bless the Damaged Highway” drags). Nonetheless, the most effective music on Hannah Montana: The Film belongs to Taylor Swift. Her “Crazier” is extra real, extra easy, than any of Miley or Hannah‘s tracks, which is all of the extra fascinating contemplating that Swift is, in loads of methods, what Hannah Montana was aiming for within the first place: a large teen star with nation roots and pop polish who appears comfy in, and delivers the most effective of, each of these worlds. The soundtrack’s segmented monitor checklist provides to its strangeness; after so many songs about going again dwelling and getting again to roots, it is a bit of disorienting to return to Hannah‘s glitzy world with “Let’s Do This” and “Highlight.” At simply over an hour lengthy, Hannah Montana: The Film supplies devoted Hannah/Miley followers with loads of music for his or her cash, however anybody else will discover it exhausting.
