    While it's certainly missing any form of coherency, Witness does feel like you're growing with Perry - going on this journey that's helped her find new ground and a reinvigorated appreciation for all walks of the pop music spectrum.

    Chilly melodies meshes well with Perry’s diary of reflection and self-enlightenment. In fact, many of these songs are written in sad-sounding minor keys as opposed to cheery major ones. It’s a smart trick. ... If there were a few more pure pop moments like those songs [[Bon Appétit and Swish Swish], Perry would’ve made something truly worth witnessing.

    While she may have slipped down the pecking order, Witness proves she’s still a more interesting pop star than she’s often given credit for.
