  1. The sadder Pink gets, the better the big, rocky roar that characterizes much of the disc sounds.
  2. Pink continues to make everything she touches her own. She uses brains and brawn to turn the mainstream into a complicated place.
  3. On her confident fifth album, the multiplatinum hitmaker attacks her recent divorce in all styles.
  4. Anything that reduces Pink's in-your-face presence, and that includes a preponderance of slowed-down, tarted-up examinations of divorce, is probably an ill-advised move.
  5. Funhouse would be more fun if Pink went easier on the bad-love songs.
  6. Angst is very well in small doses, but over an entire album it can start to grate.
  7. Pink can reach unusually stirring heights when in the right register. That register, on Funhouse, is something close to despondence with a lot of tiredness thrown in--just enough to make Pink forego her instinct for winking and simply sound pained instead.

    Funhouse was P!nk's best album until she released her new one last year. This album is just pop rock perfection. "Sober" was dark and haunting where "So What" was just crazy fun and "Glitter In The Air" was sweet and heart warming. This album has it all. Expand

    P!nk has released amazing albums like Mizzundastood and I'm Not Dead which make you wanna get dancing as her amazing voice hits you but this is something new. her bratty, sexy, sad, yet fun record gets you going again, swaying your head to the beat of hard songs like So What and laughing with Bad Influence. "I'm the instigator of underwear" is the best lyric in the entire album from the latter song. Expand

    Funhouse is a great pop-rock album. "Sober" is a masterpiece, while other tracks such as "So What" and "Please don't leave me" are also very catchy. Despite being serious and emotional, there are also fun -not generic- songs in this album. Definitely worth a listen. Expand

    Funhouse is fun, but it doesn't have the best songs. It's P!nk's best album, and P!nk's sassiest yet, but she really isn't all that groundbreaking anyway, is she? Expand

    really, this album is a rip-off, one of her worst one's ever but yet one of the best. so what & funhouse and a couple other tracks are good but i do not like the rest. this album could improve way better. Expand

    Funhouse doesn't totally accomplish to keep up with P!nk's former release, I'm Not Dead, but it still shows that this girl can sing, can make punk songs and can also write great songs! "I'm the instigator of underwear showing up here and there" on 'Bad Influence' is an utterly awesome line, e.g. Some songs are poor and skip-able (One Foot Wrong, Mean) but most of the CD is nice and worth hearing. A very good pop album! Expand

    The only song that really stands out is the lead single So What, the rest of the album is just repetitive and tired songs. As a whole the album is trash. Expand
