P!nk albums are always known for their emotions. The second single "Try" is a hauntingly beautiful ballad about the falling out of love. P!nk clearly wants to try to make the relationship work but her lover isn't as dedicated as she is. Another emotional song is also the best song on the album, "How Come You're Not Here." The song is an angsty dance-rocker and P!nk shows her sassy lyricism. "I heard a rumour, about another girl/Sure she's cute, but she hides nuts like a squirrel/That's all cool/I'll wait right here/Til you bet bored and she gets carded for beer," P!nk sings sarcastically. This song is sure to be a live favorite and future single.
P!nk also collaborates on this album, something she hasn't done since her punky third album Try This. "True Love" which features Lily Rose Cooper aka Lily Allen. The song sounds like something off of Cooper's first album. The two ladies together form a sassy pair and this song is amazing. Another great duet on the album is "Give Me Just a Reason" which features fun. frontman Nate Ruess. The song sounds like a fun. song and that's a great song. The ballad about a breakup from both sides of the relationship is sure to be a future hit for P!nk. Lastly is Eminem on the hip-hop rocker "Here Comes the Weekend." The song is one of the best while I've always found Em's raps to be overrated he truly adds to the amazingness of this song.
The only song on the album that is a little lackluster is the repetitive title track. It's not bad, but it's not as good as the other songs.
P!nk has released the best pop album of the year and her greatest album ever. This only goes to show that P!nk is a living legend and isn't going anywhere for a long time.
