Katy Perry's new album Witness is getting a pretty mixed response from critics, one of the worst reviews coming from Spin which said it "has the inherent appeal of a spectacular failure, but that’s about it."
It seems prolific indie musician Sufjan Stevens isn't a fan either, talking about it in a new Tumblr post entitled: 'LORD HAVE MERCY'
Singling out a lyric from the track 'Deja Vu', he wrote:
Stevens appeared to be drawing attention to the clumsiness of the metaphor, while the bible study line possibly references her Christian upbringing.
Perry has been pushing her new album hard, taking part in a 72-hour lifestream from a Big Brother-esque house.
