  • Summary: The fifth album for the pop artist features tracks produced by Max Martin and Butch Walker.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 11 out of 20
  2. Negative: 0 out of 20
  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 is an exciting and trembling journey for Alecia Beth Moore, AKA P!nk with her turbulent relationship with Carey Hart. "so what " is a song which can mesmerize people with such a simple,repetitive melody. "Glitter in the air" is simply a lyrical masterpiece. "mean" is probably one of the best-written song by P!nk and Butch Walker. Expand

    I thought this record was perfect. You want a brake up record, but this beautiful album!

    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

    Not a die hard fan by any means, but this album has some great singles. The slow serious songs may not match Morrissey levels, but the pop anthems are above anything "serious" songwriters could envision. P!nk just has "it." I can't help but root for her. Expand

    This Album is by far worth the listen- it is filled with brilliant stand-alone tracks. This is not my type of music, yet i still love Pink and her songs. My only negative comment would be that it isn't quite as good as her last album. Leaning to much towards conventional pop with tracks such as 'So What". Despite this, a great album. Stand-out tracks for me are: "Sober" "Please Don't Leave Me" and "Mean" 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
