The Good:

For those of us who never purchased the original release, then this cd will be a true treat. This is the first Katy Perry cd I have bought. With this Definitive 18 track collection, you are getting 7 additional tracks including remixes of "ET" and "Last Friday Night" along with an acoustic version of "the One that Got away." Even better than that is the inclusion of three new songs. "Wide Awake" and "Dressin' Up" (these two could easily become future singles) along with her current seventh #1 track the powerful balled, "Part of Me."

This album will now enter Music history as having the most singles and number one tracks by any artist (Male or female) from a single album. It is almost like a Greatest hits compilation.

THE BAD:

I can understand die-hard fans being upset at now having to buy the album twice for really three new tracks. I too do not like record-companies gouging people with many different versions of the same cd. If you already have Teenage Dream then just download the three singles and add them to your Katy Perry collection.

Maybe what the record executives should have done was include a bonus DVD with the 7 videos alongside this release to make this worth the full price.

I'm sorry, but I like a lot of Katy's music. She is more rock than pop and I would have bought this for "Wide Awake" than anything else. I don't care if she gets criticized for sexual innuendo, at least she doesn't throw it in your face like other female singers of this time. "Wide Awake" verges on psychedelia and I like that. And lets face it, bottom lie, the girl is drop dead gorgeous.

For a very long time I could not stand Ms. Perry. To some extent that still holds. Originally when I bought the album (for >$1, and even then I thought I was spending too much) I only liked Teenage Dream and Firework sort of. Luckily, after much gritting of teeth and forcing my mind to stay open, I ended up kind of liking it enough to say it was worth my $1 (and maybe more).

Serious guilty pleasures for me are CALIFORNIA GIRLS and LAST FRIDAY NIGHT aka I will openly say I hate these songs. Both feelings are true. When both came out and played every other song on the radio, I wanted to kill her for making such annoying songs that were way to catchy. Still I can only listen to them once in a blue moon or the irritation sets in. The remix with Missy Elliot of LAST FRIDAY NIGHT is far better, cuz Missy Elliot is da bomb.

Teenage Dream and Humingbird Heartbeat are my two favorites on the CD. They kind of have the same premise, but both have a nostalgic sound behind the lyrics as well as at face value. I really love Hummingbird Heartbeat because it reminds me of the music that was on the radio when I was growing up. Though, I am not a fan of the first line "you make me feel like i'm losing my virginity." In this way and many others I am worried that Katy is going in the direction of Rihanna with TALK THAT TALK. SEX, SeX and more sex. I'm not sure either one of them is even more tasteful. This also shows me how Katy Perry struggles with a good metaphor at times. Firework is a nice feel good song, and I especially like the video. Seriously though, who in their right mind feels like a plastic bag (this line almost ruins the entire song for me)?!

Despite being a little heavy in sexual expression, I do like DRESSING UP.

First, this is the only album of hers I like the other was nice and all but not quite my thing for music though it was well done. This one, blows you away. She's not some crappy song writer, she reminds me of the old Singer/storytellers of the 70's(come on you know you've heard or remember "Little boy blue and the man in the moon") these are just story songs of her...and of all of us.
I will admit though I liked the California Gurls edition that had legal action taken against it, personally that version was the best, course maybe its cause I heard it 3 times driving from Milwaukee to Wausau on various radio stations, but I just think that was the best, Snoop Lion (Dogg at the time) does a good interlude but...its just not quite as good.
its a fun album. even the last additions are still fun its like okay you had this awesome party and fun for the album and suddenly you have to wake up to reality and bam there it is, you're "wide awake" the phone's annoying you and you "just want to throw my phone away" and dang going back to bed and back to the fun dreams would be SOOO much better.

'Teenage Dream' is, by far, Katy Perry's most commercial album to date. With a back catalogue consisting of:

1 Christian Pop album (recorded under the name Katy Hudson)
2 cancelled albums [1 as a solo artist & 1 w/ The Matrix]
3 major label studio albums ('One Of The Boys', 'Teenage Dream' & more recently - 'Prism')
...that's saying a lot.

The songs revolve around candy-coated, cotton candy-laden fluff (even a shout out to Candy, ur, California - where Perry originates from ["California Gurls"]).

All of the songs on 'Teenage Dream' are slick, radio-ready pop cuts.

I'm wondering what happened during the time between 'Boys' & 'Dream'; Perry must've feeling like a child all over again, wanting to revisit pop in all of its cute little naughtiness. In contrast to 'Dream', 'Boys' seemed to have a more quirky, indie sound to me. It's interesting what only a short time can do...

noteable things:

"California Gurls" - sounds strikingly similar to Ke$ha's "Tik Tok". Snoop delivers a nice - short, but sweet - rap verse.

"Teenage Dream" - the lyrics are cute, but somewhat awkward/odd considering Perry is now 30.

"Firework" - a token feel-good, self esteem booster thrown in for good measure. The strings remind me of Coldplay's "Viva La Vida".

Seriously, though, who on God's green Earth has ever felt like a plastic bag?!

"Peacock" - Perhaps the most vulgar song on here, it's pretty obvious that Perry isn't talking about the bird itself...a thinly-veiled attempt to sound "edgy" & shock people. Perry's label supposedly opposed putting "Peacock" on the record, but Perry refused.
