Katy Perry’s ‘Prism’: Stream The Transcendental Pop Experience

How do you follow a zeitgeist-capturing pop album that spawned six number one hits? If you’re Katy Perry, you expand your musical horizons and blend genres like a mad scientist. As a result, Prism is a roller-coaster ride that lacks the focus and ruthless commercial nous of Teenage Dream but more than makes up for it with quirky musical cocktails (trap-pop, anyone?) and sunny charm.

The LP’s lead single "Roar" and dual buzz tracks ("Dark Horse" and "Walking On Air") give you a taste of Prism’s eclectic sound-palette. There are lashings of radio-ready pop (beautiful ballad "Unconditionally" and the toe-tapping “Love Me”) but Prism is at its best when Katy takes chances. “This Is How We Do” is a joyous ’90s throwback, “Ghost” layers synths over a rock ballad and “Legendary Lovers” would be tailor-made for a yoga studio if it wasn’t so infuriatingly catchy.

Speaking of yoga, a new-age theme runs through many of the songs. Katy frequently sings about spirituality and enlightenment to reflect her current state of romantic bliss but there’s still enough darkness for KatyCats craving One Of The Boys part 2. Listen to blockbuster album after the jump.

Does Prism surpass Teenage Dream? Have your say in the comments below.
