Album Review: P!nk: The Truth About Love

The Truth About Love

Alright, you know what this album has officially slapped me out of the retro spree I've been on.  I've seen P!ink better.  It just seems like every song on the album is borrowing from someone else. I'm hearing Owl City, Ke$ha, Jet, Franz Ferdinand, Lenny Kravitz, Siouxie and the Banshees, Cindi Lauper, Joss Stone, and The Talking Heads, everyone but P!nk except when she rips off herself from 10 years ago.

And to make it worse half of those artists were retro revivalists in the first place. So now we're having weird retro-retro. Not retro-punk. Not retro-new wave. Not retro-pop.  Retro-retro. The ouroboros has just eaten its head.

Don't get me wrong, it's not that the album sounds bad. It's actually quite good, if you can forget every song you've heard over the radio for the past 40 years. And it crushes me because I know P!nk is better than this. She's a great song writer. I just feel that this album was just lazy.Sure, I'll concede that my generation is too stupid to realize when we're hearing a song written 20 years ago. But are we really so stupid that we won't realize hearing one written 3 years ago? P!nk you are better than this!
