5.0 out of 5 stars Girl Just Wants To Have Fun December 15, 2010
Format:Audio CD
I doubt if Katy's main objective with this release is to stimulate our cerebral muscles but she might want to stimulate you in other ways. She's very naughty here (a shout out to new hubby Russell Brand perhaps?), veering into territory more frequently inhabited by the likes of Ke$ha, Britney, Rihanna and Shakira with such trashy anthems as "Teenage Dream", "Peacock" (hey, Toni Basil!), and another of my particular favorites "Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)" in which the narrator drinks too much, breaks some laws, has a three-way and indulges in other hedonistic activities. I make no apologies- this song makes me feel young again.

Other highlights include the divine bubblegum dance pop hit "California Gurls" in which Snoop Dogg's little bits are a welcome addition. "Firework" really surprised me. I first heard it on the radio and thought it sounded like Katy but at the same time there was something different about it. Probably my favorite song on a very consistent album, the music is all joyous strings with Katy belting out this beautiful anthem of empowerment like it's the last song she'll ever sing. I love the way she goes right from the sublime to the ridiculous in the following "Peacock", a funky and hilarious ode to a man's `architecture' and back again to the heartache of "Circle The Drain", a song about drug addiction. I can't help but wonder how much of this CD's material is based on reality and how much is fiction which adds to its allure for me. "Hummingbird Heartbeat" is my final favorite, a kind of sister song to "Teenage Dream". This record is fun, humorous and at times even touching. It even smells good! Like the sweets adorning our Ms. Perry in the album artwork, this is a pure confection of guilty pleasure.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Fun Album But Not for Your Kids December 30, 2010
Format:Audio CD
Katy puts out a fun upbeat pop album. But unless you want to explain to your kids or young teens about wanting to see a guys "peacock" and threesomes, I'd leave it out of your kids library.

4.0 out of 5 stars Identity Crisis October 5, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I wasn't really sure how to rate this album because it really feels like two different albums in one. Half of the tracks I can't stand, and the other half I love and play on repeat. Here's my breakdown:

1. "Teenage Dream" - 7/10
It's a hit for a reason - it's very catchy but misses the mark with me for value.

2. "Last Friday Night" - 7/10
For a long time, I wasn't fond of the message in this one, so it put me off, but the fun tone of it is kind of infectious! It's a good song to listen to when you want to forget your problems and just have a good time. If I have to be honest, it sounds like Katy singing about what Ke$ha lives every day. ;)

3. "California Gurls" - 7/10
Catchy but no real value to me.

4. "Firework" - 10/10
Great song. This is probably what made me buy the album! Not only is this tune unforgettable in sound, but the lyrics are inspirational, about realizing there is something amazing in you even when you are down for the count.

5. "Peacock" - 1/10
SKIP - about a man's manhood.... ugh. I listened to this CD for the first time in my car while driving to work, and I couldn't mash the buttons on my dash fast enough to skip this. I tried giving it a few tries at home, but these lyrics are just disappointing.

6. "Circle the Drain" - 10/10
Here was another of my favorites. This one, while being catchy like most of Perry's album, deals with drug addiction, but from the point of view of a partner who doesn't want to see her S.O. go down deeper and deeper.

5.0 out of 5 stars This Review Is For The Vinyl Edition January 24, 2011
Format:Vinyl|Verified Purchase
I won't go into a review of the music as that has been covered by many others under the CD edition. Let me tell you about the absolutely fabulous vinyl edition,,,
TOP QUALITY !!! This edition is one of the best thought out and just plain fun vinyl sets that I have purchased recently. First off it is a double disc set, 180 gram white colored vinyl. Glossy standard weight gate fold jacket with a nice photo on either side of Katy. Full face glossy paper sleeves with candy swirl red and white print. Also included is a separate double sided glossy paper lyric sheet with the same candy theme design. Keeping with the candy theme the jacket has a noticeable smell of cotton candy. The sticker on the plastic wrap does warn of this, however it is not over powering and surely will fade quickly. 12 tracks, just like it's standard CD counterpart are spread across both discs, 3 tracks per side. This could have been put onto a single disc, but by spreading them out the manufacturer has taken a great step in giving plenty of room for the groove. Many times, even with 180 gram vinyl, 6 tracks or more are jammed onto one side which results in "micro grooving" or narrowing of the groove, resulting in loss of sound response and a tendency for the needle to jump the groove or "skip". At under the 20 dollar mark this is very much worth the money. I highly recommend this set! Also, the vinyl set of Katy Perry's other album, One Of The Boys, is also just as noteworthy with the same thought of fun and value. Please see my review for that one if you'd like to know more.
Thanks for reading my review!

I like Katy Perry and this has to be in your collection. Love her voice. Album does have adult language if you buy the unrated version. Nice to have on my iPod. Worth every cent.
