The Line of Best Fit

Prism shows a more mature side to the singer, an ability to really connect with her experiences whilst still producing absolute pop smashes.

As much as I feel like PRISM is an improvement of Teenage Dream in terms of maturity and even songwriting, it fails to present consistency throughout the tracklist. The album starts off with a lot of potential, but as it goes by, it gets monotonous and kinda lifeless (with the exception of some songs).

Double rainbow-7,9
By the grace of god-9,0
It takes two-8,1

'Prism' segue a linha de álbuns pop do tipo que vende uma mensagem - mesmo sendo rasa e superficial - e é com essa mensagem que Katy Perry faz uma jogada inteligente, ela une temas de apreço universal com música pop e pronto, sucesso comercial garantido!
