Today's MOR angst-lite lifestyle music...,
This review is from: M!ssundaztood (Audio CD)
This is a horrendous album that people are buying due to a dull catch all (diluted forms of r&b, rawk etc) notion of marketing- this has more in common with Shania Twain than Alanis Morisette (who could be blamed for this kind of muzak).
Linda Perry, the writer of possibly the worst song of the 1990's (4 Non Blondes What's Up?) is responsible for much of the co-writing here- kind of (very) poor man's Charlotte Caffey or Diane Warren. Still, she;s made lots of money and is going to work with (guffaw) Courtney Love- who's still very underground!
Pink, as 'artists' like Eminem and Robbie Williams, is full of angst and woe. So the music is littered with tales of her terrible life, as the final track hilariously demonstrates an equivalent of Vietnam!!!!!!! Please, what next- My Holocaust? This is that typical thing of self-pity, where terrible atrocities are seen as a metaphor for someone's life (in this case Pink). Could she tell this to a psychiatrist?- Or perhaps take some advice from The Only One's Why Don't You kill Yourself? This is such typical lifestyle music for affable Westerners- who've never had it so good, but are angst-heavy all the time.
Oh, but Pink's different to Britney Spears, as the lyric to the idiotic Don't Let Me Get Me states- so that'll be a different Pink dressed up as a schoolgirl in the video to the song of the same name. Nothing like Britney, well apart from Ms Spears dressed up as a schoolgirl in the Baby One More Time video- and to be fair (unlike Pink): she WAS a schoolgirl. "Britney Spears- that just ain't me"- really, so the anodyne Get This Party Started with a woeful "Coming Up" lyric has a completely different Pink exposing her midriff a la Spears...
This album is banality and mediocrity at its most offensive, still if you have no brain and just want some semi-meaningful MOR muzak- this cd is for you...

So if anyone dares to like something that you do not, then they have no brain! GROW UP! Furthermore check your facts, her father served in Vietnam and she grew up going to Vietnam Veteran functions, so probably is far more informed than you or I.

Way to slate an album. There are nearly 50 5 star reviews for this album, does this not tell you that you are in the minority, and that you might possibly be over reacting? ANYONE can dig up dirt, and exaggerate. And honestly if you think music should not include dramatic lyrics, you should be slating every single artist in the world.
By reading your post I have deduced you're some middle aged man having a mid life crisis, and taking it out on people that actually have talent.
If you're not, admittedly your grammar and vocab is impeccable even if misused.

Jason obviously fancies himself as a critic, as one can see from his 1,402 reviews on Amazon. I have no problem with that. What I do have a problem with is the attitude that, if you don't agree with the review here, you are some kind of moron, i.e. "still if you have no brain......"! Jason, if you don't like an album, that's fine - just don't insult people who happen to have a different opinion. If nothing else, it makes you sound like an arrogant know-all.
