What parents need to know

Parents need to know that this is Miley Cyrus without the Hannah Montana alter ego. The lyrics are clean, but talk about being caught up with someone. It's the second single from her upcoming album due for release in July.

What's the story?

"FULL CIRCLE" is the second single from Miley Cyrus' upcoming album Breakout scheduled to be released in July (check back then for our full review). Like her first single, "7 Things", it's a little more rock 'n' roll than the usual Hannah Montana style.

Is it any good?

Full Circle is a catchy pop-rock tune with simple, memorable lyrics for anyone to shout along to. It's about trying to get over a guy, with Miley belting the chorus, "Try to run/but I keep on comin' back, full circle/and I can't jump the track/can't let you go, oh, oh, oh." The song is good, but the vocals leave little to be desired. It's not clear whether Miley is trying to push her voice like the mature rocker that she is not, or she's trying to sound indifferent. Either way, the ambitious vocals are a little too big for this 15-year-old's britches, and not quite up-to-par like we know they can be. But, chances are, her loyal teeny fans won't mind anyway.

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about the image Miley Cyrus is trying to portray as herself and not Hannah Montana. Do you like the "real" Miley? Do you think it is hard to break away from her alter ego?
