Editors’ Notes

Like Liz Phair and Alanis Morissette before her, Perry revels in exploring relationships and sexual roles. Perry’s voice is powerful, and the guilty pleasures of  “I Kissed a Girl” – infused with a snappy, Joan Jett-style arrangement – and the admittedly funny “Ur So Gay” (no, it’s not anti-gay, lighten up!) are like indulging in your favorite junk food late at night. 

Customer Reviews

A great first effort

This album is a perfect mix of soft rock and pop, along with a few ballads. This was before Katy Perry was a superstar, in my opinion this is better than Teenage Dream and PRISM.

1. One of the Boys- A good opening title with real lyrics.

2. I Kissed a Girl- very fun track, I like how this song pushes boundaries.

3. Waking Up In Vegas- another upbeat song, very carefree and fun to listen to.

4. Thinking of You- emotional ballad that has beautiful lyrics that she wrote herself.

5. Mannequin- this song is great, has a nice start and although it can get repetitive by the end it's still an awesome track.

6. Ur So Gay- probably the most interesting song on the album. It's lyrics are very clever and although some say it's homophobic it really isn't, she's not making fun of gay people in any way.

7. Hot N Cold- everyone knows this song, I don't think it's that great but it's still fun.

8. If You Can Afford Me- a rock influenced song that's also catchy but has it's flaws.

9. Lost- you may think this song is boring the first time you listen to it, but this is actually my favorite song on the album. It's truly beautiful though it may take you a few listens to fully appreciate it.

10. Self Inflicted- this song is very similar to If You Can Afford me, rock influenced but a bit forgettable.

11. I'm Still Breathing- like Lost this is another grower, but again it's a meaningful ballad that shows a more vulnerable side to her.

12. Fingerprints- another rock influenced song that gets it right. The lyrics are funny and rebellious and I love this song, if you don't want to buy the whole album if you're looking for a song that no one really knows this is a great choice.

13. I Think I'm Ready- similar to I'm Still Breathing. I used to kind of dislike this song until I payed close attention to the lyrics. It's a very deep song about being ready to be loved the right way.

I would definitely recommend this album to anyone who enjoys pop, rock, alternative, punk, and r&b. It's Katy Perry's best album.

Love love love

This is a great album. I definitely recommend it.


Love every song on this album. There is a song for every mood and emotion.

A former Christian artist, Katy Perry rebranded herself as a larger-than-life pop star and rose to prominence during the summer of 2008. Before she topped the charts with songs like "I Kissed a Girl" and "California Gurls," though, she spent the better part of a decade recording music under a different name. Katheryn Elizabeth Hudson (or Katy Hudson, as she billed herself on her 2001 gospel album) was born on October 25, 1984, in Santa Barbara, California. Raised in a religious household as the daughter...
