P!nk's 6th Album and absolutely sensational!! If you're not a fan of P!nk, Listen to this album. You will be when you've finished it! Fantastic vocals, Excellent lyrics with a mix of party tunes packed full of attitude and songs that make you think about the important things in life. I have always thoroughly loved the albums that this woman produces, mainly because I feel that I can relate a lot to what she sings and writes about. I can pin point a part of my life and go straight back there with every song I listen to. Very few artists are able to do that to me and I appreciate an artist who has the courage to sit down and write about their own personal experiences. I think it's very important to lay it all on the line and she deserves a huge amount of respect. Can't wait for the tour next year! Buy all her albums NOOOOOOOWWWW! haha.

New material from our favorite foul-mouthed singer that doesn't hesitate to say everything as is, has arrived. She's fearless and her un-sugarcoated expressions get right to the point. The new album is a great and pleasant escape from the auto-tuned electronic noise that has polluted the music scene in the past 3 years (which noise I tend to enjoy but is unfortunately been overdone now). It includes from pop/rock jams to some powerful and stripped down ballads. Her style goes back to her rockier "Try this!" era and fusions some pop elements from her next eras and a pinch of acoustic ballads from "Funhouse". It all blends perfectly and the outcome is a fresh and unique album that you will play on repeat.
Her first single "Blow me (One last kiss)" is a powerful pop/rock break-up song that has played in repeat for hours on my computer and haven't get bored of it to date. It only foreshadows the greatness that is to come!
I was about to write a list of the best tracks, started naming most of the tracks and stopped because the whole album stands out, but I mostly favor the ballads. The only thing I can say is that the weakest track in the album is "The truth about love". Also, for those who hesitate to buy the deluxe edition, I have to say that "Run", which features uncredited vocals from the one and only Lily Rose Cooper (a.k.a. Lily Allen), is a very sweet ballad that's worth the extra money of the deluxe.
All in all, I believe it's, if not the best, in the top 3 of best albums in 2012 that's not gonna disappoint any P!nk fan or people that are tired of today's music. 5/5
P.S.: Try to say this review's title fast!

Ok, so I was counting down the minutes to this album, I admit it!
It has a split of fast and slow songs and I must say, a few of the songs took a few listens to really get in to, but in no time at all I love all of it.
Becoming a mother doesn't seem to have toned down her attitude at all, and the swearing and lyrics are as typical of her as ever, and yet again, it works perfectly.
There are three songs where P!nk collaborates with other artists, Enimem, Lily Allen and Nate Ruess (Lead singer of Fun). These songs all work brilliantly, and I'd like to see more collaborations in the future.
Where Did The Beat Go reminds me very much of her very first album, and reminds us how versatile P!nk is.
Just give me a reason is my favourite slow song on the album, and Nate Ruess' voice sounds perfect next to P!nk.
The title track, The Truth About Love, sums the whole album up, in that it's fun, kickass and completely P!nk all over.
I'll stop myself listing them all, and just say - buy this now!
Bring on the tour!

BOOM! P!nk is back. Not with a sizzle but with a bang. This album is wickedly good. I love it.
Especially her collaborations with Lily Allen, Eminem and Nate Ruess, they're pure magic. At first I was a bit devious about Lily Allen featuring on a p!nk track but I was pleasantly surprised and it worked and created an amazing, catchy tune. Also when I saw Eminem was featured on the album too I thought this is going to be brilliant, two legendary artists making sweet music this is gonna be good and it was. Pure heaven.
There is only one song what I am not too fond of and that is The Truth About Love but it is slowly growing on me. But apart from that all the other tracks are excellent, especially 'True Love', 'Is This Thing On?', 'Run', 'The Great Escape', 'My Signature Move' and 'Try'. When I heard P!nk was working on a new album I was doubting myself thinking that she's took a break and try make a big comeback and she might flop but no this is the complete opposite, this album is definitely gonna be a hit!
The album cover is just the cherry on the cake. I love how P!nk is crouching down in her vibrant red high heels and pulling that mysterious look on her face just adds to the mystery of what songs are on this album. So all in all this album is superb! I would recommend it to anyone who loves P!nk although she is changing her musical direction slighty she is still holding onto her roots and is continusly creating catchy, up beat tracks. So, P!nk lovers buy!!

Fantastic album, Pink does it again.. i really like the duet with Nate from Fun. As usual she has a few songs with swearing in it( usually the ones the kids like!!!). Altogether another really great album, well worth buying.
Like all the best music, this just gets better and better with every listen. There is quite a range of musical styles here , all with the unmistakable and brilliant Pink style , including three duets which all work brilliantly - 'Just Give me a Reason' is a particularly catchy song and the track I found myself singing away to first. 'Slut Like You' is fun, earthy, catchy , powerful- great music, and The Truth About Love' grows on you with every listen - and features some amazing, almost operatic, vocals. But really there are no filler tracks - at least not after a few listens.
If you have liked anything Pink has done - you really should get this - it won't be a disappointment
A really great album, from a really special artist.
Love Pink, not just her music but her attitude. Yes this album contains a lot of swearing but then Pink is known for that on her albums but I do note that the Product picture does not show the Advisory sticker on the front cover, so please be aware.
I like her collaboration with Lily Rose Cooper (Lily Allen). I like most of the songs on this album but I have always enjoyed Pink's ballads most of all and on this album my favourite song is 'Beam me Up'.
In my opinion, Pink is an excellent song writer.

I like Pink and this album did not disappoint.Many tracks aimed at her 'husband' and their problems but delivered in Pinks down-to-earth,matter of fact style.Easy to understand lyrics,her great voice and varieties of beat make this a good listen.

So Pink's back,but she doesn't just walk back into the wolrd of music,she comes charging back in!
This is clearly a new direction for Pink and i admit i really wasn't sure upon first listen,but now i love it.
She starts off the new album with ARE WE ALL WE ARE,it does indeed make it clear she's back.
Next we have new single BLOW ME (ONE LAST KISS),a great song,very Pink,but a little different.
TRY will soon get you singing along without really trying,JUST GIVE ME A REASON moves things along nicely.
TRUE LOVE had me worried with LILY ALLEN being featured,but in all fairness it's a great song and i had no problems with LILY''s vocals (thankfully short) for a change.
HOW COME YOU'RE NOT HERE asks questions,another great track.
SLUT LIKE YOU i suspect could be one of those tracks that a lot of people just find annoying,Pink's viscious tongue turns into a whooping chorus that kind of sounds very girly and irritating at first,but it's grown on me to the stage i'm shamelessly singing along,whooping and all.
THE TRUTH ABOUT LOVE is another winner,Pink,but again a new Pink,a fresh Pink,really catchy and surely a big hit in the future.
BEAM ME UP is pink proving she can indeed sing beautifully,it's one of those soft ones and nicely done.
WALK OF SHAME will no doubt get better with every listen,still getting to know this one,but i kind of like it.
HERE COMES THE WEEKEND featuring EMINEM,yep,you heard right EMINEM,it's a great track that really works,shows the new direction and isn't ashmaed of it.
Finally we have WHERE DID THE BEAT GO,which soon becomes a musical friend for your head and THE GREAT ESCAPE,well you know what? i think she might've got away with this,great closer.
It's an album that upon first listen had me wondering what she's done,then i realized,she's come back with a fresh sound,even her vocals sound different.
But with a sound that soon becomes something special,i've no complaints,welcome back Pink.
Just to state,i did get the deluxe edition,and as much as i like the new tracks,there's only 4 and they would easily have fitted onto the 50 minute album,very naughty,but i suppose a great EP for a few quid is a way of looking at the dodgy sales ploy.
I'm not impressed with this recent deluxe edition thing,when it's only a few tracks in most cases,but i doubt the artists themselves have anything to do with it. I do like this 4 track disc though and would say it's worth it if you can forgive the naughty sales tactic. Get a great album,get THE TRUTH ABOUT LOVE.

Arrived really quickly. What can I say. Pink is amazing. I have enjoyed her music for over 15 years and with tunes like on this album I will continue enjoying to listen to her music for years to come. There are some strong words in the songs but if you are already a pink fan you will know this. My 11 year old loves her and totally loves this album.
