Katy Perry has had so many hits, like "Teenage Dream" and "One of the Boys", but I can't include this album on that list. In my books, Katy missed the mark with "Witness". I feel like this album is trying to be something that it's not; Katy Perry is known for singing upbeat and happy love pop songs, and I think she should just stick to that. She can sing, don't get me wrong. But "Witness" has a lot of songs that are supposed to give off some message about feminism and independence, and they're structured like some songs that are a cross between pop and rap. In my opinion, it doesn't work for her voice or her look, and if she wanted to do a song about female empowerment, she should have done it a different way. Some songs on the album are alright, but that only goes for a few, like "Chained to the Rhythm". "Witness" might be your kind of album, but it's a no from me. I give this a 2/5. @peraltiago4ever of the Hamilton Public Library Teen Review Board

No MEGA hits as "Roar" in Prism or "Firework" in Teenage Dream but with a bunch of pretty decent pop tunes. Her most popular youtube video from this album is "Chained to the Rhythm." Liked the "Into Me You See" for her range in vocal and "Swish Swish" for its bubbly beat.

I intend to play this until I learn it by heart, or until I HAVE to return it because others are waiting. LOVE Katy Perry.

Interesting new album

Not her best album. But it's not a HORRIBLE album either.

Highlights: Title track, Deja Vu, Power (If this gets released to radio, it'll blow up!)
