    Comments belie the truth in "the generation gap".

    Nothing wrong with Miley. She broke that Disney-do-gooder mould just like Brittney, but better and without too much in the way of public meltdown. And if yer Daddy was "That guy who sang Achey Breaky Heart", then you definitely need to deviate from the "by association" cliche.

    She's good enough to make a career in the same fashion as those before her... It's just that more modern times they do it with more gutter and less sophistication.

    Marilyn started that trend. then Madonna took it one step closer to the gutter-inuendo. If you want to create a stir and get attention from 50% of the population, just flash some natural assets and the boys will line up for tickets, jaws agape and drooling like neanderthals.

    I don't see any reeason to mock other than it's too much for the blood pressure to handle.

    Thankfully mine's not too bad with a 118/70 this morning. Might hit 160 if I watch too many of her music videos.

    Cut her some slack - if she makes a fool of herself in public as others of her generation have done SO spectacularly, then that's her issue and noone elses.

    As a terminal cancer patient with a new perspective on life, it amazes me how much energy is wasted talking about things we don't like, or trying to condemn this or that or whoever......

    There is absolutely no form of music I can't get into....

    I listen to instruments much more than singers, and prefer strictly instrumental music, but I will say that Miley Cyrus is one of the few singers I know of that I really like. I don't envy a talented young woman in that business. What are her choices, if she wants to reach a big audience and sustain a career? We can point fingers and blame whoever we want, but the options are pretty limited for how to be hugely successful as a female singer. Are there many role models for women who've done this in a dignified way? There are a lot of examples steering the other way. When I just listen to her sing, I'm really impressed. I hope she finds a way to keep going despite the pressures that come with popularity and the horrible influences in the business.

    That vid to me shows that she should be the lead singer in a hard rock band and ditch the pop stuff. She has good tone for rock, but isn't a talented enough singer to pull off other genres. She needs a good band and some good original rock material that highlights her rock tone.

    It was a Shure Model 55 microphone video. I have 3 of Shure classic styles SM57, SM58S & Model 55 Unidyne.

    Anyway, Miley Cyrus, I give her a pass on that little phase she was going thru trying to reinvent herself. She could've gone straight from Pop to Country, instead of coming up just short of Britney Spears and needing an intervention. Even vocalists though use the effects and auto tune. Not sure if she needs more or less than most vocalist. When I went thru my microphone phase of gear acquisition, I learned more about how the effects of reverb, compression at the very least enhance the vocals. This particular cover of Jolene was enjoyable to listen to. There are times I can't listen to Dolly Parton sing. Some C&W vocalists are more annoying than others for me.

    She is an awesome singer. The band sounds pretty cliche even though it’s cliches I tend to like.

    Yep it's OK, a good version and great band, but the vocal is too "rocky" and over sung for my ears. It sounds angry rather than the sad/heart aching Dolly original - but then maybe that's the intention? Modern singers only seem to do "rock" voice and not "soft" voice singing.

    How does that voice come out of such a little body. Her R&B and blues are killer. And yes Dolly is her Godmother, but the poor girl also has Billy Ray as a daddy, poor thing!

    People dislike miley cyrus because of her stage persona, her outspoken nature, the way she rubs the people the wrong way, and a myriad of other reasons.
    I dislike her because she's just not good at singing.
    Please. She's friggin terrible.
    If she is a good singer, who are you comparing her to?
    Whitney? Etta? Beyonce? Pat benatar? Pink?
    She's barely an alto (probably not even), has a gravelly grating voice, and pretty terrible delivery.

    I understand the dislike, but let's dislike for the right reasons.... no talent.
