  • Summary: The fifth album for the pop artist features tracks produced by Max Martin and Butch Walker.

  1. The sadder Pink gets, the better the big, rocky roar that characterizes much of the disc sounds.
  2. On her confident fifth album, the multiplatinum hitmaker attacks her recent divorce in all styles.

    Whether struggling with sobriety or confronting her own meanness, Pink has never been less cool: She's hot-blooded throughout, and it suits both her pipes and a female pop genre that rarely embraces this much tangible pain.
  4. Perhaps Funhouse is a victim of its own excess: it may be inevitable that an album of 14 songs with more than a dozen credited writers will end up as hit and miss, as messy as this.
  5. Funhouse would be more fun if Pink went easier on the bad-love songs.
  6. 60
    The bigger the gamble, the stronger she feels. By the end of the record, she’s lassoing the moon, getting through her loneliness the way she got past teen pop: by sheer force of will.
  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 aFunhouse 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'm the instigator of underwear" is the best lyric in the entire album from the latter song. Expand

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 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
