    welcome to the funhouse

    I could probably put everything I know about Pink into ... well ... I guess it would be into a single album review. I know her real name is Alecia Moore. I know she burst onto the scene at the same time as a handful of other pop singer/songwriters. I know, for some reason, she hasn't seem to be given the same level of respect as some of her peers (though I've read one "professional" review that already dubbed this her "divorce album," given her recent change of marital status) ... but that could all change with FUNHOUSE. There's a 1960's one-hit wonder quality to the entire album, to every single track, a sound so magically captured in the Tom Hanks film THAT THING YOU DO! It's fun, with a lot of attitude. So What (5 out ot 5): A perfect gem of a song. When it comes to rockin' pop rhythms with lyrical attitude, Pink clearly commands the lead over her peers with driving songs matched with the killer refrains like that of "So What," a musical shot of adrenaline. Who cares what others say? It in the end it doesn't matter b/c talent & attitude triumphs. Never diss the rock star. Celebrate the self. One of the best tracks here. A hit out of the park! Sober (4 out of 5): A melancholy rocker, introspective in a way only someone who's looked inside can pen and perform. Personal demons are often driven by the actions of others (bad lovers, bad parents, bad friends, etc.), but only one's self-confidence can help you achieve lasting happiness. "How do I feel this good sober?" Indeed. I Don't Believe You (5 out of 5): Starts softly and swells in power, much like any individual's soul. Only Pink's trembling & gritty voals can elevate the power to jilted love songs like these. Tragically romantic though the love may have come to an end. One Foot Wrong (2 out of 5): Is it jazz? Is it electronic? Is that a reggae beat? I'm not too sure what to make of "One Foot Wrong." For the record, there's also a late 60's sound working here. The track feels a bit experimental. If it weren't for Pink's massive voice, then I probably wouldn't much remember this tune. Please Don't Leave Me (4 out ot 5): Lyrically, the song truly shows Pink's vocal strength, alternating as it does between her contemporary singer and an almost lilting little girl backing "da da da" track. A throwback sound to the teen beach tunes of the 1960's brought forward in time beautifully here. Bad Influence (5 out of 5): Forgive me if I think that THIS is what Pink does best ... celebrating her own downright sinful badness. Pop/rock with all the attitude you can fit between the start and the finish. Actually, this tune has an odd theatrical quality to it, like it's destined to be featured in a rock movie musical or maybe just a real solid and wicked music video. Funhouse (5 out of 5): Celebrating annihilation ... complete with its own countdown. "This used to be a funhouse, but now it's full of evil clowns." The title track is exactly the kind of song your grandparents warned you about when they said, "Stop listening to that rock'n'roll ... it's so violent." Yes, it's so deliciously destructive, and it's arguably one of the best tracks here. Crystal Ball (5 out of 5): Smoky & reserved, it's that other kind of song that Pink does extraordinarily well. Just her voice & a twinkling guitar. Questions about the future abound, but just greet them like you would any challenge, and you'll be fine. Hint: even that crystal ball cracks, folks. Honestly, I could listen to her sing this song and play that guitar softly for hours on end. Mean (5 out of 5): Pink does southern fried rock like Aerosmith does (and ISN'T that Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler singing back-up as he's done with her before?), complete with the blues-backed twangy electric guitars. This is the kind of vocal performance that Grammy's OUGHT to be celebrating. A big (but heartfelt) rock ballad complete with the F word worked in for good measure. "It's like a train wreck trying to hit the right track ..." Asks and tries to answer the question about how, why, when, and where the relationship went wrong. It's All Your Fault (3 out of 5): It's the kind of track you'll be hearing playing in the background of a Spencer's Gift store for the next six months and always wonder what that's all about. Great driving undercurrent, the kind of track some kids love headbanging to these days. For all its strengths, it's the kind of song whose lyrics either means something to you or they don't. Ave Mary A (5 out of 5): A flat-out indictment of the world we've created, complete with questioning one's faith alongside with how we got where we are. Glitter in the Air (5 out of 5): A song that speaks to the simplest, magical pleasures of life, like a child throwing a handful of sparkling glitter into the air. Pink squeezes more depth, passion, and humanity into these four minutes that many of her peers squeeze out of an entire career. This Is How It Goes Down (5 out of 5) Sexy, subversive, and sinful, the perfect exclamation point to this visit to the FUNHOUSE. I could've done without the rap interlude by Travis McCoy, but that's only a matter of taste. Well, after all is said and done, what is Pink's FUNHOUSE? I could be wrong (I've been wrong before), but I think she's singing about life ... the good, the bad, the tragic, the charm, the ecstatic, the love, the loss ... all of it rolled into one is the 'funhouse,' a ride that once we're all on board we have no other choice but to ride it all out ... thru the good times and the not so good times. There's something here for everyone -- much like life -- and no one should walk away disappointed. Musically, this album is absolutely terrific, and, lyrically, it's absolutely top rate. I haven't felt so excited about an artist's total release in an awfully long time, and here's hoping that Pink finds the success she so much deserves with this trip thru her own personal funhouse.

    Since Mizunderstood

    Posted
    Fyre

    Ok, so I really really like Pink and she's been a favorite since the very first album and then she releasted Mizunderstood and I was floored she could pull that off. Then I felt like she had a little less than half of the songs on each album since then matching what she did on Mizunderstood. So I've been a little disappointed since then. I thought "she can't do it again" "that was once in a lifetime." How wrong could she have proved me on this album. It's ALMOST better but deffinitely just as good and I would buy it again and again if it showed my appreciateion (but I won't in this failing economy). I listened on Iwww.Iheartmusic.com and got up halfway through the CD and went to Best Buy and purchased it and figured (for the first time (I'll see what others said about it. Then (again, for the first time) I decided to wrte one too. Go Pink! I'd marry you too (only if you'd stop smoking). LOL

    This generation's Pat Benatar

    Her gritty vocals harken back to the early days of Pat Benatar! I hear it in her songs, her style, her choice of material. This lady is going to be around for quite some time...so stop complaining that you don't like whole albums of material...that rarely happens in this cookie-cuter cd society in which we live...but P!NK does her best to give you something to talk about with each track...for me...FUNHOUSE is just that...a fun house filled with the music of someone's personal life, her ups and downs put out there for all the world to see as she matures into a sexy as heck rock goddess for the modern age...something Miss Spears will never be...and someone that Miss Aguilera will enjoy being a vial of for years to come...they can both sing...and sing anything they want!

    LOVE This Album!

    I usually don't write reviews, but I had to write one for this album. I have always liked how different Pink's voice and songs are, and this album is no exception. Funhouse is a great album and well worth buying. There are only two songs that I'm not crazy about, it's not that they're bad but they're just not my favorites. The rest of the songs are AWESOME! It was well worth the price.

    This album was the epitome of perfect timing. P!nk is the ultimate performer of this generation. The vocals, the instant identification of her iconic performances when you hear the songs, and the sell out tours. Had been meaning to add it to my collection for some time now but when it went on sale for just $1.99 Black friday week, it was a given! I had to buy it. Well worth it at any price however. BEST TRACK: Sober

    This has to be Pink's best CD out there. I wanted this CD since the day it came out. Finally broke down and purchased it years later. Pink does not disappoint! I can listen to this CD over and over and never tire of it. It gets me pumped up in the morning and feel good in the evening.
