    She sounds like a woman, and an artist, who’s finally found herself.

    Katy Perry aims to please. But now she grasps that she's making the mainstream, not just swimming in it.

    It doesn’t require the patience or emotional/intellectual involvement that albums I typically listen to require. The cool thing, though, is that it does have quite a bit of redeeming value.

    She largely sticks to her tried-and-true pop template, each song tailor-made for mass consumption with mixed results.

    As a whole, Prism is forgettable. It’s neither good nor bad, and it’s not inspirational enough to set anyone on fire who’s not already an 11-year-old girl, closeted teen boy, or existing Perry fanatic.
  6. An album with too many cooks in the kitchen and not enough good songs to recommend.
  7. Self-help and sauce remain the remit, which might have been less tiring if “Roar”, “Walking on Air” and “This Moment” offered forms fresher than, respectively, the robo-stutter of Rihanna’s “Umbrella”, weary Italo-house pianos and strenuous stadium bluster to enliven their empowerment-speak.

    Será que PRISM é uma bibliografia musical da Katy Perry? Parece que que ela criptografou sua vida no álbum. Eu só ganhei inspiração nesseSerá que PRISM é uma bibliografia musical da Katy Perry? Parece que que ela criptografou sua vida no álbum. Eu só ganhei inspiração nesse álbum pois as músicas foram compatíveis a mim, eu consegui me imaginar cantando com letras diferentes, se assimilando um pouco com as letras originais. Agradeço a Katy por fazer um álbum que trouxe inspiração que em mim estava oculta, PRISM é mais pra pensar do que se divertir, é mais para imaginar do que refletir. Eu só consegui apreciar este álbum pois eu imagino bastante. Sem muita imaginação, o álbum seria apenas música para dormir, com exceção de ROAR, Dark Horse, o que pode muito bem serem apreciadas sem imaginar. Unconditionally pode te fazer pensar a respeito de romance (ou não), mas o que vem ao caso é que esse álbum parece ser feito apenas para quem pensa, para quem imagina e para os Katycats, que pelo amor que sentem pela Katy Perry (devido ao se compararem e pelas semelhanças) se tornam compatíveis ao álbum.

    Eu amo incondicionalmente a Katy e seus trabalhos e sempre serei parcial quanto a minha opinião aqui expressa.
    Amo muitas faixas do PRISM, mas tem umas que não tem como defender a honra desse álbum com faixas tão genérias e batidas como "Birthday, This Is How We Do e International Smile".
    Eu não vejo ALMA neste disco, não vejo algo no qual eu e as pessoas possamos nos inspirar.
    Faltou isso no PRISM, eu como fã espero uma melhoria na sonoridade do #KP4.

    Bored, there's no more words to something that seems that doesn't have enough effort.
