A beautiful album
By Piñata Magonia Poppy
This is a beautiful album. I can’t take anything away from that. Some people are thrown off by P!nk’s style, but personally, I get it. It’s P!nk, and if you don’t like it, you don’t have to listen to it, period. This album, overall, was much more slower than her previous effort, The Truth About Love, and I’m not going to complain. I took a lot away from this album, and while some people may say it was “bleak and depressing”, I personally think it was beautiful. The way she ended the album so magnificently with “You Get My Love” (on the list of some of her best ballads, might I add), was a genius choice. Now, on the political side of things, I don’t have to agree with her politics, but nonetheless, she still has good music. A really great, quality album. I think people are still used to P!nk consistently putting out Punk songs, and with this album after a five year return, ripe with ballads, I think it threw many through a loop. But I still love it, and when she’s ready to release more Punk songs, she’s ready. There are a few she’s released, just not comparable to what she released before. But until then, I think we’re at a stage in her career, where she still doesn’t care as much what people think, but she doesn’t need to have this hard facade where she shouts and shows her stripes. She sings from where she’s at in her life, and if this is where she’s at, this is where she’s at. I’d rather have something organic, than stilted and forced.
