If my 14 year old fully fledged emo-self knew that one day I would like Katy Perry she would cry. If she knew that I owned all her albums and have been to see her live, I don’t even know what she’d do.
This is one of my latest additions to my vinyl collection; it’s a limited edition picture disc of the deluxe version of PRISM, which was released for Record Store Day in 2014. It contains two double-sided LPs with pictures from the albums artwork printed on them.
(If you’re interested, you can still get this from Katy Perry’s website.)
Side A: Roar, Legendary Lovers, Birthday, Walking On Air.
Side B: Unconditionally, Dark Horse, This Is How We Do, International Smile.
Side C: Ghost, Love Me, This Moment, Double Rainbow.
Side D: By The Grace of God, Spiritual, It Takes Two, Choose Your Battles.
The reason I love this album so much is that it has the perfect balance of fun and more personal and honest tracks, which I always prefer.
It always reminds me of summer, especially Roar. I remember hearing it for the first time when I was on the way back from The Roaches & Tittesworth Reservoir; it was a nice summer day and we’d had a great time walking the dogs and wandering around the reservoir.
