Pros: Songs like Dark Horse and Roar are anthems to Katy Perry's evolution.
Cons: Prism is lacking. I recommend people just buy the singles and disregard the full album.
I am a fan of Katy Perry and any artist that chooses to evolve their image and sound. Prism is Katy's evolution from bubblegum pop to a grittier femme fatale. Being her fourth album, I fully expected her to knock it out of the park and she did on certain songs. What I consider a great album is when I can just let the tracks play and I enjoy every single one. That is not what Katy Perry's album did for me. I should not have to use the skip track button on a full album that is worth my time. While I am proud of her evolution of sound, she has not arrived at queen status with this "hit-or-miss" album. Katy Perry is smart to release the best songs from this album as singles to convince people that the full album is as good as "Dark Horse." Unfortunately it is not. Katy is true to herself in this album, however. She continues to empower herself and her fans with heartfelt lyrical content and groundbreaking orchestral composition. There is a beautiful conglomerate of syth sounds and live instrumentation represented in this album that signifies and growing appreciation for both the muscian and the electronic dj.
