ADM rating[?]


UK Release date
  1. 8.0 |   The Digital Fix

    Teenage Dream is actually quite a hard-hitting album that evokes memories of the enjoyment of our formative years and the disappointments that they would eventually bring. It hits home, even if you're not a Californian girl

  2. 7.0 |   NME

    As heady as the musk of a 16-year-old's body spray. Print edition only

  3. 7.0 |   Consequence Of Sound

    Teenage Girl appeals to all club kids, teenyboppers and even casual music fans. Perry’s cheeky personality has a lot to do with her success and this album is a testimonial to what catchy songs and a polished image can do for a pop star

  4. 6.0 |   The Irish Times

    Between the streaking, strutting and skinny-dipping, Perry pauses for thought ... but never losing sight of the ultimate goal – fun, fun, fun

  5. 6.0 |   Daily Telegraph

    In the post-Gaga pop world, the erstwhile bad girl seems distinctly lightweight

  6. 6.0 |   Q

    Print edition only

  7. 6.0 |   BBC

    There’s intelligence, individuality and character in abundance. But all too often it’s caked in dollar-store body glitter and choked by feather boas

  8. 6.0 |   Spin

    Teenage Dream won't disappoint parents looking for reasons to worry about their kids
    Read Review

  9. 6.0 |   Rolling Stone

    Throughout [Teenage] Dream, she chases an all-American teen-pop sound that's older than the Hollywood Hills

  10. 6.0 |   Evening Standard

    A brash, cackling hen party of a record
    Read Review

  11. 5.5 |   Beats Per Minute

    On an album that started off on such a wonderfully dreamlike note, the onslaught of tired cliches and forgettable melodies that constitutes its second half leaves the listener anxious to wake up from this Dream. Stick to the fun stuff, Katy—nobody travels to the Golden Coast to have a bad time

  12. 5.0 |   The Observer

    A hard-nosed pop product with little of the humour or wit expressed so fluently by her wardrobe and choice of beau

  13. 5.0 |   Rave Magazine

    Not even Perry’s scrappy charm is enough to keep you engaged
    Read Review

  14. 4.0 |   PopMatters

    After some severe front-loading, the album is filled out by songs that are too dark or lifeless to work alongside the Candyland motif of the cover

  15. 4.0 |   Drowned In Sound

    If you’ve heard the singles, which you probably have, then you’ve heard the best Teenage Dream has to offer

  16. 4.0 |   Eye Weekly

    Unapologetically smutty bubblegum is both what you see and what you get
    Read Review

  17. 4.0 |   The Scotsman

    Clichéd music, phrases and rhymes that grate and irritate
    Read Review

  18. 2.0 |   Independent on Sunday

    Ends with Not Like the Movies, the "meaningful" one ... she sounds like she's been crying. By which point so will you be, but for all the wrong reasons
