EDITORS’ NOTES

For her second album, Katy Perry took her new star status as a cue to explode outwards in every direction at once. Everything is day-glo bright and pin-sharp, even in the moments of pained introspection (“Who Am I Living For?”) amid the sloppy party anthems (“Last Friday Night”), silly sexiness (“Peacock”), and nostalgic trips back into teenage heartbreak (“The One That Got Away,” “Teenage Dream”). So rather than tone down her eccentricity, she adds even more sparkle, color, and complexity to that cartoonish persona.

BEST ALBUM EVER !!

This album is an amazing album. If you're having a party this is the album for you. From Teenage Dream's fast upbeat sound to California Gurls' fun playful summer anthem. This is Katy's most successful album for a reason!!!

This album has many good songs. Here is a track-by-track review.

"Teenage Dream"- Catchy hooks. Fun lyrics. This song has it all explaining The Teenage Dream.
