Pop Starlet Surprises Dec 13, 2009
By Jordan Buchnell
Katy Perry's Unplugged album came slightly out of left-field. Hardly anybody would expect a radio friendly pop star such as Perry to go ahead and release and album of her hits acoustically, in the classic Mtv Unplugged format. However, that is what she has done, and the results showcase the young singer/songwriter as a girl whose raw talent and ear for music has sadly been overshadowed by her over-the-top personality and outfits.
Her voice and stage presence are impressive, and her cover of Fountains of Wayne's "Hackensack" and her jazzed-up version of "I Kissed a Girl" are the stand-outs on the album. Particularly the latter, which turns the bragging party anthem into something of a darker, worrisome take on Katy's uncertainties with her sexuality. Whether this was deliberate or not is purely in the mind of the listener, and Perry obviously is content with just sitting back and letting her fans sort out the pieces.
Regardless, this album stands as a testament to a young artist's talent and well-deserved place in the American pop music lexicon. Give it a listen. Highly Recommended!

Blown away! Jan 25, 2010
I just finished watching the show on Palladia... twice. Katy Perry is an artist that I have been torn about. I have liked her music, but I wasn't sure if I really wanted to buy a whole album. It's just a little too much pop for me, a little too young, and her antics made me take a "wait and see" approach. I just happened to turn on the show at the beggining. About 10 seconds into her jazzy rendition of "I Kissed a Girl", my jaw dropped and I started recording. I never noticed how fantastic her band is. They really shine in these accoustic versions where you get to hear the fine points. I was mesmerized for the whole show. As soon as I was done watching it through the second time, I launched Amazon in hopes that she had released a CD. I love it that I can get the DVD, too!

What a triumph! Jan 21, 2010
By Ron Barnes
Thank god Katy Perry has the talent, intelligence, creativity, sophistication and maturity that critic Deimos "Rock Fan" lacks. When I by chance tuned in to Katy's "MTV Unplugged" performance on Palladia, I didn't know anything about her. I was blown away with her incredible performance. What a triumph! I am an active member of rock 'n' roll's original generation and a connoisseur of rock, pop, jazz, blues and country music. Hopefully the industry moguls will see fit to allow Katy to transcend commercial considerations. She is already way ahead of the game.
Sadly, the joke's on you, Deimos "Rock Fan."

Katy won me over with her stripped down performance Dec 04, 2009
I loved Katy's unplugged session. Made me a fan. Her voice shines. Dig the accompanying instruments - strings, horns, and all. Her comment about aiming to dress up like a cross between Stevie Nicks and... a fairy. Haha. She's gorgeous. The topper was her cover of Fountains Of Wayne's Hackensack. Great stuff!

Awesome and surprising performance. Feb 17, 2012
By M. D. Brown
Though I have listened to and enjoyed some of the popular songs Ms. Perry currently has on the airwaves I wouldn't have considered purchasing an entire album as the genre is not something I listen to on a regular basis. I purchased the "Teenage Dream" album from Amazon as a gift for my daughter and saw the overview and samples of the MTV Unplugged CD/DVD set at the same time. My daughter suggested I order it as she had seen part of the DVD elsewhere and thought it was very good. She said she thought I would be surprised and pleased. I own a few MTV Unplugged DVDs of other artists and liked the forum and quality so I went ahead and made the purchase of "Katy Perry: MTV Unplugged". My daughter was right; I was amazed, surprised, and in awe of Ms.Perry's vocal/musical ability and now view her as a very versatile artist and probably one of the greatest women artists of the 21st century. The first time I watched the DVD I remember asking my daughter several times if she was sure this was the same Katy Perry as on her "Teenage Dream" CD. Amidst a few chuckles my daughter nodded affirmatively. I now listen to more Katy Perry music with appreciation as I realize that she is an extremely capable, talented and endearing musical artist. I would sure like to hear some more acoustic tunes from Ms. Perry in the future.The inclusion of the CD of the MTV album along with the DVD has been terrific as my stereo setup has much better sound quality than my TV and makes listening to Ms. Perry that much more enjoyable. Recently, I also purchased Perry's "One of the Boys" CD and a very difficult to find CD of the once shelved album "The Matrix: featuring Katy Perry",both through Amazon.com I'm sure my daughter(and myself)will enjoy them. Thanks, Amazon!
