All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
All Katy Perry wants is the spotlight, and she'll follow the path of others to get there, raising eyebrows à la Alanis, strutting like Gwen Stefani, and relying on Britney's hitmaker Max Martin for her hooks. She never breaks away from the expected lite club beats that transition from day to night without a hitch or the chilly, stainless steel ballads designed to lose none of their luster on repeat plays. Perry acknowledges some trends -- she salutes KeSha on "Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)," replicates Ryan Tedder's glassy robotic alienation on "E.T.," but tellingly avoids ripping off Lady Gaga.

    CANDY COATED SWEETNESS!

    Teenage Dream is a ridiculously good album for an artist that I think a lot of people often overlook. Katy really delivers with this Teenage Dream! The album is packed with songs that could be her next big hit! There are fun dance songs, but also some songs that cover more serious matters. I think Katy has always been good at being able to have fun, but be serious when she needs to be. This album shows how serious she is about her career! My favorite tracks are The One That Got Away, Firework, Teenage Dream, and Pearl. YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED!! - WT

    Dream On!

    Teenage Dream is a delightful pop album that you won't want to miss picking up. Its cleverly crafted lyrics and memorable melodies will be stuck in your head all day! Some of its gems include Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.) which will soon become a party favorite, Who Am I Living For, a true song about finding yourself, and The One That Got Away, a heartfelt tune about wanting someone you can't have. The hard copy of the album contains a sweet cotton candy scented booklet and beautiful pictures of Katy! Fans of One of the Boys won't be disappointed. You definitely won't regret purchasing this album. -VB

    Katy Perry's new album rocks!

    Katy Perry's new album "Teenage Dream" most certainly beat the sophomore slump. She has upbeat sexy addicting tunes and she also has ballads that can make your heart melt. If you haven't bought the cd get it now. JC

    Great album! :-)

    Katy perrys second album I would say is the best album to get for the year of pop/rock. Her album is amazing and she is very talented. I like the song teenage dream, the song takes her back to when she was a teenager, I like the song last friday night t.g.i.f, califonia girls is a fun song! I heard that song on the radio for the first time, I really liked that song, Firework might get overplayed on the internet but it is a really good song with a good meaning. Peacock is a funny song to dance to, circle the drain is fun if you want to punk out, the one that got away is a good song, E.T. that is a really cool song, I liked all of the songs, put it that way. I hope Katy creates a third album because this one was awsome, she is getting better every year, WAY TO GO KATY PERRY! :-)

    Better Than One of the Boys

    "Teenage Dreams" has a song for everyone. There are pop-dance songs like "California Gurls" that Katy Perry's known for, and there's heavier songs like "Circle the Drain" and slower songs like "Teenage Dream". This is a very strong follow up album to "One of the Boys". The album also smells like cotton candy which is a plus ;). I can see many of these songs making the Top 40 in coming months. DD.

    EXCELLENCE

    Katy is a dream on this album. She shows what an amazing voice she truly has. Peacock I can see being a huge hit in the clubs...maybe it will even have it's own "dance". Circle the Drain shows more of Katy's personal side singing about dealing with an ex boyfriend's addiction. Not like the movies is a slower song that shows Katy's amazing voice off. Love this cd.....very fun and energetic!! bg
