Review of "The Time of our Lives"

This is my first review of an EP that I happen to stumble upon. This is a Walmart-exclusive EP made in conjunction with Miley Cyrus' clothing line, also another Walmart exclusive.

So let's check out the songs:

1) Kicking and Screaming: this song is originally a song by Ashlee Simspon and is a cover from Cyrus herself. The song is good but it has the angst from an old song of Hilary Duff's (just forgot what the song was). This song shows Miley's perfect emulation of the said song, right to the vocals.
Song rating: 4.5/5

2) Party in the U.S.A.: this song tells Miley's roots until she made it big in the entertainment industry. According to her, she said that it's an All-American song and represents where she came from, notably the state of Tennesee. the song also mentions Jay-Z and Britney Spears, two of her idols. (In the Teen Choice airing of this song, she mentioned Michael Jackson in the 2nd part of the song, ommiting Jay-Z and bringing Britney to the 1st part of the song) Oddly enough, it didn't mention her mentor/predecessor Hilary Duff. maybe no more space? XD

(Note: The song was also invloved in controversy due to Miley's "pole dancing" brouhaha in the Teen Choice '09 (see my opinion of it in a past post) but the music video makes up for the mistake. This song is also used in the CM for Miley's clothing line.)
Song rating: 4/5

3) When I look at You: The song actually gives an in love feeling in it. The said song will also be in the OST for "The Last Song", a movie adaption based on Nicholas Sparks' novel. The Music Video of it, which was leaked then later seen by October, shows her and fellow co-actor Liam Hensworth in scenes a bit reminiscent of Sparks' previous movie adaption, "The Notebook".
Finally this song sounds like a Celine Dion song, only younger.
Song rating: 5/5

4) Time of our Lives: A bit reminiscent of Hilary Duff's "Wake Up" but more of a tamer version of it. The song also has a reference to her Hannah Montana song "Life's what you make it" in the chorus. It kinda makes me remember Miley Stewart and Oliver Oken's friendship way before the dreaded Loliver romance.
Song rating: 4.5/5

5) Talk is Cheap: A catchy song comparable/equal to the song "The Math", only with a feeling of a fight scene of two best friends against lots of teen bullies. (I thought of that when this song was on, a reason for it XD) But the song kinda does show a mature side of Miley in this one. kinda.
Song rating: 5/5

6) Obsessed: Another ballad from Cyrus in this EP, it shows that when you're in love you end up, well, Obsessed. (That's why it's the title of the song) another masterpiece from Cyrus as she belts out the effects of loving someone to the point of thinking about him/her. The song feels like a Sheryl Crow song also. Now if only it was released as a single and a music video, too...

(Note: there was a rumor that the last line in the song in whispers says "Come back Nick", but Miley said she never wrote such a lyric in the song. if you hear carefully, she whispers "I want you".)
Song rating: 5/5

7) Before the Storm: Miley with Nick Jonas in it. need I say more?
Song rating: 4/5

Total average: 5/5

Well there you have it. the review of "Time of our Lives". a must get in your nearest Walmart. Highly recommended for all Miley fanatics.
