i absolutely loved this album. its by far my fav. album ive listened to this year.
first of all its such fun, 'California Gurls' obviously is a great catchy summer track everyones aware of. Teenage Dream, the second single of the album is equally feelgood and catchy.
..but the best songs are yet to be released, the album is full of all sorts of different sounds, and moods and themes, yet it all strangely gels together. listening to it, its quite suprising how good all the songs are.
'Last Friday Night' is a great song, about all the crazy things you do when drunk, it reminded me a little bit of britney spears' song 'blur'.
there is the cheeky track 'Peacock', there is the awesomely uplifting (and one of my favs on the album) Firework which is about been individual and yourself and full of life, then theres the anger of a relationship went wrong in the full-on 'Circle The Drain'.
'The One That Got Away' is a sweet track about lost love, and the regret of losing it and having to move on, its actually really sweet.
'E.T' is AWESOME lol, very catchy tune and after a few listens, you find yourself singing along.
'What am i living for' was actually one of the suprises of the album, she sounds very rocky here, very different from the kooky katy we often hear in songs, its actually a great song, and i love the whole feel of it, when u hear it you'll understand what i mean.
'Pearl' is a song a lot of women will be able to relate to, its about a man holding u down, and been in a relationship where you are no longer yourself, you've lost youre shine and the essence of who you are, listening to it, britney spears came into my head.
its actually a really nice song with a nice and hopeful ending.
'Hummingbird Heartbeat' is about love and the effect of finding that someone who makes youre heart skip a beat, its a fun song, i liked it. and finally...
'not like the movies' which is a lovely ballad, katy said i read in an interview she had written half of this before she met russell and then the last half with him in mind. anway, i REALLY like this one.
my personal favs on the album are: 'Teengage Dream', 'Firework', 'The One That Got Away', 'E.T', and 'What am i Living for'
if youre not sure about buying it, i reccomend it 100%. i love playing this full blast in my car. its one of those albums that instantly puts you in an awesome mood and makes you want to sing along at the top of youre lungs...and what more could you want than that?
