Album Review: PRISM by Katy Perry

Written by Katy Perry and many others over the last year in Stockholm and Santa Barbara, the singer’s third album is definitely less bubblegum pop than 2010’s Teenage Dream, but not entirely a return to her “above the status-quo” ballads on One of the Boys, her first album released in 2008.

Perry has not been withholding her inspiration for PRISM; her divorce from Russell Brand is the subject of “By the Grace of God”, and her new relationship with John Mayer is rumored to have inspired many songs on the album.

Don’t worry, though, the album still provides some of the girl-power anthems Katy Perry is famous for: the #1 single “Roar” and “International Smile”.

The one collaboration on the album, “Dark Horse” with Juicy J, has an interestingly “Trappy” beat and a rap portion, something different from the rest of the album.

All in all, if you are needing a new workout jam or song to slave through calculus with, PRISM might be for you.
