You really chose this as your first post huh.
I'm never going to be a fan, but I listen to her stuff with an open mind and this is a marked improvement on the slog-tastic Witness.
This album was always gonna be hard for Katy Perry. I see it as a bridging album from "Witness gate" to a new era. I wouldn't say this is a "new era" for her as such if that makes sense. Career wise I just see this as her putting a plaster on the wound, publicly recognising what happened with her last album and getting over it and hoping we do too...and I think we should because she's a fantastic pop star!
Only love is reaaaally cute! The melodies in the chorus are beautiful and it kind of makes you wanna cry no?
Is it just me or does the chorus feel like a taylor swift style chorus?

The phrase "don't speak unless you can improve on the silence" has never been more appropriate.
Only Love though...
This is a great pop record. Resilient/Not the End of the World was a bit of a dud, forgettable moment for me. But that's what I expect from a Katy album. Few dud's, great singles and some exceptional should-be-singles.
Cry About It Later, Teary Eyes, Champagne Problems & Tucked all had me bopping and singing along by the end of the track. Katy hook perfection.
Never Really Over and Harley's are still some of her best ever work too.
High On Your Supply is another 'Act My Age' situation and should have been on the standard.
Does "High On Your Supply" actually have the crackles at the start, or is that still the vinyl rip floating about?
Okay, i'm already on my fifth loop of 'Teary Eyes'.
I still stan. The way she effortlessly goes deeper than ever before and she actually does it with better lyrics and melodies than before... I love this for her.
The final chorus on 'Teary Eyes'... God is a woman
She really came out of the gate swinging with the first three tracks, a strong line up.
Strangely enough it's actually the perfect album for the times- finding strength in the things that really matter, getting back to a point where you feel ok with yourself and the world again, deciding what's really important- all things that have happened lately to a lot of people I think.. just a basic sense of optimism after a very dark moment.
well it's also Number 5 !
Are you serious? that is really the dumbest comment I've read in a while
The title track is easily the worst thing from the album, so it's frustrating to think it became a single over stuff like "Cry About It Later", "Teary Eyes" and "Only Love". But anyway, with a couple of cuts, the album becomes a killer 10-tracks affair and her best since Teenage Dream.
Wait, is this post a sneaky Walking On Air easter egg? No choice but to stan.
Don't get your pretzels in a twist hun, I think you can guess the answer to "are you serious?". I lived there four years.
They don't smile much in Berlin to be fair.
I love ‘Cry About It Later’.
