PARTY TIME Miley Cyrus
EW's GRADE
B+

Details Release Date: Aug 31, 2009; Lead Performance: Miley Cyrus; Genre: Pop

Given that she's already conquered the worlds of country and dance-pop, it was only a matter of time until tween queen Cyrus took 
 a crack at hip-hop, as she does here on ''Party in the U.S.A.,'' a bouncy Dr. Luke jam that finds Hannah Montana 
lost (and loving it) in Hollywood. 
Elsewhere on The Time of Our Lives, an eclectic Walmart-only mini-album, Cyrus works her 
husky chirp over big-beat disco-garage (''Talk Is Cheap''), paranoid synth-rock (''Kicking and Screaming''), and 
Les Miz-style power balladry (''Obsessed''). We await her inevitable death-metal move. B+
