One Of The Boys

Performers Katy Perry

Capitol/EMI Records | June 17, 2008 | Compact Disc

One Of The Boys is rated 5 out of 5 by 1.
Katy Perry is the late 2000s version of the sassy pop-rocker wielding girl power like an Uzi. Blending elements of Alanis Morissette, Britney Spears, and Gwen Stefani, Perry's 2008 debut, ONE OF THE BOYS, bashes metrosexuals ("Ur So Gay"), flaunts lesbian experimentation ("I Kissed a Girl"), and celebrates spontaneous road trips ("Waking Up in Vegas"). Thanks to a cadre of top-shelf producers, including Desmond Child, Dave Stewart, and Glen Ballard (who also produced Morissette), ONE OF THE BOYS glitters like spun cotton candy, but it's Perry's bold, topical songs and in-your-face attitude that help the album pack a punch.

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sooooo Catchy By now you may have heard a song on the radio called "I Kissed A Girl" ("I kissed a girl, and I liked it. The taste of her Cherry Chapstick" ring any bells?). Katy Perry's first c.d. "One of the Boys" has become my new favourite c.d. I think it is a brilliant debut album. All of her songs have quirky, funny lyrics and catchy tunes that get stuck in your head for days after. The title track "One of the Boys" is fantastic, telling the story of the Tomboy who decides she wants to be noticed. This song has some of the best lines, for example :" I want to be a flower; not a dirty weed. I want to smell like roses, not a baseball team!" Many of her songs, such as "Hot and Cold", "Thinking of You", and "UR So Gay" deal with relationships; some with a humourous twist. "LOST" is perhaps one of my favourites of this c.d., a haunting song about the day after a night out; the chorus asking "Have you ever been so lo-oo-ost? Know the way, and still so lost?" I found this album refreshing after being constantly bombarded with other artists like The Pussycat Dolls, Rihanna, and other pop groups on the radio. If you're looking for something unique, a bit edgy with songs that you will be singing/humming for days on end, and you can handle some sarcastic, witty lyrics then "One of the Boys" is definitely for you. P.S. Katy Perry's video blog on her website is hilarious! Google it and check it out! It's under the "Dear Diary" section.
