    Read Review

  3. 8.0 |   State

    You’ll enjoy the new Miley Cyrus record. Really. You will
    Read Review

  4. 7.0 |   All Music

    If Younger Now seems slightly scattered as it flits from song to song, it nevertheless adds up to a portrait of a pop star so confident of her swagger, she doesn't bother with such niceties as old-fashioned flow

  5. 6.0 |   The Guardian

    It’s all really rather lovely, although too soon to know whether this, finally, is the “real” Miley standing up
    Read Review

  6. 6.0 |   The Observer

    Isn’t a failure exactly – just the sound of Cyrus, or her record company, panicking and hitting “reset”
    Read Review

  7. 6.0 |   The Arts Desk

    If the sprawling Bangerz was a ridiculous rollercoaster of brilliance and appallingness, this concise album is a steady cruise
    Read Review

  8. 6.0 |   Slant Magazine

    Isn’t quite the reactionary effort it’s been made out to be
    Read Review

  9. 5.8 |   A.V. Club

    Younger Now’s successes all hark back to her 2009 hit “The Climb” and her humble, country-pop roots. Now that Miley has found her way home, it might behoove her to stay there

  10. 5.6 |   Sputnik Music (staff)

    It's safety, however, renders it somewhat toothless and benign when placed next to not only her previous material, but everything her peers are currently doing
    Read Review

  11. 4.7 |   Pitchfork

    Bland production and weak songwriting hamstring the personalized nature of Younger Now, making it merely a suggestion of the kind of artist Miley Cyrus could be

  12. 4.2 |   Consequence Of Sound

    If subsequent records don’t take her back out of this comfort zone, in one direction or another, Cyrus might find time in our national conversation increasingly (and justifiably) limited

  13. 4.0 |   The FT

    Younger Now see-saws from 2015’s self-released psychedelic folly Miley Cyrus and Her Dead Petz with a series of less weird but equally dull songs
    Read Review

  14. 3.3 |   Pretty Much Amazing

    The one redeeming quality behind this whole project is Cyrus’ twangy voice, which saves this project from being entirely pointless
    Read Review

  15. 3.0 |   Tiny Mix Tapes

    Tragically and damningly, Younger Now is boring
    Read Review

  16. 3.0 |   Drowned In Sound

    A thumpingly disappointing and consistently milquetoast set of songs riddled with lyrical banality, done-to-death melodies and wispily thin production
    Read Review

  17. 2.0 |   Spectrum Culture

    It’s surreal that an artist whose greatest talent is making an outlandish spectacle of youthfulness has made an album with “young” in the title feel so interminably dull
