Editorial Reviews

Deluxe CD/DVD pressing of this 2009 release containing stripped down versions of her hits with the addition of strings and brass on select tracks. Katy Perry goes back to her acoustic singer/songwriter roots on MTV's legendary Unplugged series. See (and hear) the multi-platinum Pop/Rock superstar as you've never seen her before, performing her #1 hit singles 'I Kissed A Girl' and 'Waking Up In Vegas' plus 'Thinking Of You', 'Ur So Gay' and 'Lost'. Also includes two additional tracks: a cover of Fountains Of Wayne's 'Hackensack' and the never before released track 'Brick By Brick'.

I have liked her music, but I wasn't sure if I really wanted to buy a whole album.

She is a natural talent, and a naturally beautiful voice.

Katy Perry's Unplugged album came slightly out of left-field. Hardly anybody would expect a radio friendly pop star such as Perry to go ahead and release and album of her hits acoustically, in the classic Mtv Unplugged format. However, that is what she has done, and the results showcase the young singer/songwriter as a girl whose raw talent and ear for music has sadly been overshadowed by her over-the-top personality and outfits.

Her voice and stage presence are impressive, and her cover of Fountains of Wayne's "Hackensack" and her jazzed-up version of "I Kissed a Girl" are the stand-outs on the album. Particularly the latter, which turns the bragging party anthem into something of a darker, worrisome take on Katy's uncertainties with her sexuality. Whether this was deliberate or not is purely in the mind of the listener, and Perry obviously is content with just sitting back and letting her fans sort out the pieces.

Regardless, this album stands as a testament to a young artist's talent and well-deserved place in the American pop music lexicon. Give it a listen. Highly Recommended!

I just finished watching the show on Palladia... twice. Katy Perry is an artist that I have been torn about. I have liked her music, but I wasn't sure if I really wanted to buy a whole album. It's just a little too much pop for me, a little too young, and her antics made me take a "wait and see" approach. I just happened to turn on the show at the beggining. About 10 seconds into her jazzy rendition of "I Kissed a Girl", my jaw dropped and I started recording. I never noticed how fantastic her band is. They really shine in these accoustic versions where you get to hear the fine points. I was mesmerized for the whole show. As soon as I was done watching it through the second time, I launched Amazon in hopes that she had released a CD. I love it that I can get the DVD, too!

Thank god Katy Perry has the talent, intelligence, creativity, sophistication and maturity that critic Deimos "Rock Fan" lacks. When I by chance tuned in to Katy's "MTV Unplugged" performance on Palladia, I didn't know anything about her. I was blown away with her incredible performance. What a triumph! I am an active member of rock 'n' roll's original generation and a connoisseur of rock, pop, jazz, blues and country music. Hopefully the industry moguls will see fit to allow Katy to transcend commercial considerations. She is already way ahead of the game.

Sadly, the joke's on you, Deimos "Rock Fan."

I have to say she is quite the singer. I loved Katy's unplugged session! Her voice shines and made me a fan. My favorite song is "thinking of you" really great stuff! This album shows what amazing talent she has. Must have!

Though I have listened to and enjoyed some of the popular songs Ms. Perry currently has on the airwaves I wouldn't have considered purchasing an entire album as the genre is not something I listen to on a regular basis. I purchased the "Teenage Dream" album from Amazon as a gift for my daughter and saw the overview and samples of the MTV Unplugged CD/DVD set at the same time. My daughter suggested I order it as she had seen part of the DVD elsewhere and thought it was very good. She said she thought I would be surprised and pleased. I own a few MTV Unplugged DVDs of other artists and liked the forum and quality so I went ahead and made the purchase of "Katy Perry: MTV Unplugged". My daughter was right; I was amazed, surprised, and in awe of Ms.Perry's vocal/musical ability and now view her as a very versatile artist and probably one of the greatest women artists of the 21st century. The first time I watched the DVD I remember asking my daughter several times if she was sure this was the same Katy Perry as on her "Teenage Dream" CD. Amidst a few chuckles my daughter nodded affirmatively. I now listen to more Katy Perry music with appreciation as I realize that she is an extremely capable, talented and endearing musical artist. I would sure like to hear some more acoustic tunes from Ms. Perry in the future.The inclusion of the CD of the MTV album along with the DVD has been terrific as my stereo setup has much better sound quality than my TV and makes listening to Ms. Perry that much more enjoyable. Recently, I also purchased Perry's "One of the Boys" CD and a very difficult to find CD of the once shelved album "The Matrix: featuring Katy Perry",both through Amazon.com I'm sure my daughter(and myself)will enjoy them. Thanks, Amazon!

I loved Katy's unplugged session. Made me a fan. Her voice shines. Dig the accompanying instruments - strings, horns, and all. Her comment about aiming to dress up like a cross between Stevie Nicks and... a fairy. Haha. She's gorgeous. The topper was her cover of Fountains Of Wayne's Hackensack. Great stuff!

I really enjoyed this rendition of Katy Perry hits which I think reflect her talent to the max. This band may be unplugged but they are still smoking hot.

This is a matter of quality VS quantity. For me given the price at Amazon it's a steal! Great Katy Perry songs & combining the CD & DVD together, well you know what a sucker I am for that. Really do you need me to tell you how hot or in the news Katy is with that super sexy Rolling Stone shoot or her impending Wedding to Russell Brand? Of course not. Back to the product. On the negative side both CD & DVD contain only 7 songs, though they kinda pull a fast one on the DVD by counting Katy's few second intro on each song as an an extra track . Voila you now have 14 tracks. Included on the DVD is an interview. I know it wasn't meant this way but the interview had me totally breaking up. Get this, you have roughly an 8 minute interview thrown in. Well upon reflection lets not call it an interview. it's more like a public speaking aid where someone hands you a microphone & you talk about whatever comes into your head to get over your shyness. There are no questions, just Katy talking with breaks every where a question was likely asked but we were not supposed to hear. Figure that one out. I never pay much attention to clothing but the long dress Katy had on & that combo clamshell/jellyfish she wore in her hair looked a little weird. That's one thing now you can really see she has improved on is image awareness. No way she dresses like that now. In conclusion the Katy Perry MTV unplugged combo CD/DVD is well worth the money though proper nomenclature might be mini CD/DVD combo.
