Seriously though. What cruel twist of pop fate dictated that one of the only 2013 albums screaming out for a 2014 repack is about to end the year completely unrepacked?
Think of the potential titles.
- Prime Bangerz
- More Bangerz
- Extreme Bangerz
- Ultimate Bangerz
- Bangerz & Mash
- Fucking Bangerz
- Bangerz Bangerz All Over You
- Bangerz: The Re-Bang
- Big Bangerz Theory
- Cheers Sinead
Yet DESPITE the potential for amazingness in the repack-titling arena, no new 'Bangerz' material appeared. Six to eight new Miley songs in 2014, building on 'Bangerz' and pushing things forward, could have been just what the year needed. Instead: nothing.
The only sensible explanation for this is that Miley's label wanted to avoid a Q4 2014 'Bangerz' repack getting in the way of a Q2 2015 BRAND NEW ALBUM. For that reason, and that reason alone, we can't stay angry. But that's not to say we're not disappointed.
While we're here, can we just discuss how great the 'physical product' of 'Bangerz' was, all those years ago, back in last year?
And that wasn't even the version with the free stickers and alternative cover.
What an album campaign that was.
