What's the story?

The beloved Hannah Montana, played by Miley Cyrus, is an ordinary, everyday girl who happens to have a secret identity as a rock star. In the HANNAH MONTANA SOUNDTRACK, she sings of normal girl problems (fitting in, living your dream, having fun with friends). Miley's feelings about staying strong and balancing her real self with her stage one is an ongoing theme ("If you could see the other side of me/I'm just like everybody else/can't you tell" in "The Other Side of Me"). In addition to the nine Miley Cyrus songs, there are four tracks by guest artists: The Click Five, Jesse McCartney, Everlife, and B5.

Is it any good?

All of the songs on this CD are clean and full of upbeat girl-power messages ("I know where I stand/I know who I am ... Gonna get what I deserve, I got nerve"), talent, and charm. The touching duet with Miley's famous father, Billy Ray Cyrus, "I Learned from You" ("I learned from you that I do not crumble/I learned from you that strength is something you choose ... There is no question that's a lesson I learned from you") is one of the album's best tracks.

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about what it would be like to have a mysterious secret identity as a rock star. Would it be worth it? What are the pros and cons of living a secret yet glamorous life like that? How would your friends react? Families can also discuss how it's different to listen to a song rather than to watch its video. How does your imagination allow you to see different things?
