Perry’s work is also not lacking in its pink bubble-gum like pop appeal either. Face it, this song is going to be another pop anthem and by the end of the year you are going to be ailing from it through sheer listening fatigue from the radio. I would also agree with other critics, that the song comes out as more of a yelp than a roar. If Perry’s new album ‘Prism’ is meant to come streaming in ushering difference, the lead song I feel doesn't seem to growl enough to set itself apart from her previous works.
All in all, Katy Perry’s ‘Roar’ receives a solid 7.6. Like a prism though, we await for its other colors to show. When the album releases and its gleaming sides are exposed to the real public light, we expect an array of shades and refractions. This is only a pink. A color not of the rainbow. Behold then what waits to unfold? Adieu.
