Katy Perry's 'Prism' Album Cover & My Thoughts On The Album After Hearing It Last Night

Last night I went to the album listening event in New York for Katy Perry's Prism, where Katy played about 10 new tracks. She worked with several Swedes on the album, including Bloodshy and Klas Åhlund, and those were really the standout tracks. (Sorry, when it comes to ballads, Katy isn't my go-to, though some may dig "Double Rainbow.")

One of the big songs that's going to get a lot of gays clutching their candy is "Walking On Air," which she did with Klas and sounds like an early-'90s house throwback. Katy said she wanted something that sounded like an old CeCe Peniston jam.

Or, as I described it on Twitter last night:
Everything else played last night was okay musically, but overall it felt like the choruses just didn't go anywhere like I really wanted them to. There's a track called "This Is How We Do" that was recorded in Stockholm with Bloodshy, and I was really hoping the chorus would just blow up. Mind you, it was a decent track, but by album number three, I feel like Katy she be knocking catchy vocal arrangements out of the park, and it just wasn't happening with this one. Who knows — maybe it's a grower.

I think if you dig "Roar," you'll be into Prism as a whole. The album wasn't cohesive enough for my taste, so I'm just going to hold out for Paris Hilton to bring the true game changing record of this decade.

    Make Believe Recordings was started out of Make Believe Studio’s in Omaha, Nebraska in the Fall of 2011 by Rick Carson and Keith Rodger. Since then, they have signed a wide variety of artists that take on no limitation to their creativity and expression. MBR’s main goal is to give the artist the chance to write, record, and produce music completely in house so they know exactly what they want to give to the public. A product from complete creative freedom. The way records should be made.
