  1. With American Idol rampant, it's nice to have this emotional hipster sticking her celebrity cred in the stupid world's face.
  2. Even her misses are ballsier and blusterier than most everybody else's recent hits. [7 Apr 2006, p.58]
  3. A wildly ambitious album that solidifies Pink’s status as superbad funky rocker chick.
  4. The only sign of life is that filthy mouth and cherry-vanilla hair.
  5. 60
    Extremely mixed results. [May 2006, p.119]
  6. It's when Pink steps outside of expectations that she turns exciting.
  7. This latest effort sees her turn indistinguishable. [1 Apr 2006, p.43]

    I'm Not Dead is P!nk's best album. It's honest, relatable, and meaningful record that you'll never get sick of. P!nk touches so many subjects and themes with this album: social, political, personal issues and contradictions. It's very underrated album by P!nk and deserves more attention. The most amazing tracks are probably: the emotional ballad (produced by Max Martin and Dr. Luke) Who Knew, typical P!nk boys vs girls anthem U Ur Hand, song about being raped Long Way To Happy, which is one of the best songs P!nk has ever written. I think every person could find somethin on this album. 10/10 Expand

    This is my absolute favorite pop album. P!nk's voice not only empowers strength but vulnerability as well. This is my favorite P!nk album out of the two I've heard. Expand

    Fantastic album, as expected from the brilliant pink. The album has a edgy and brilliant sound too it, the songs are all very good and have soul. The best songs are who knew, u+ur hand, stupid girls, leave me alone i'm lonely, cuz i can and i got money now. Expand

    This album is Pink's best, and if there were a 9.5 option,. I would certainly take it. Great vocals, outstanding lyrics, and brilliant tunes. Pinks signature album, I believe. The best pop album of the decade! Expand

    1. Stupid Girls - This song is mean. That's a fact. I understand the intent, and I respect the attempt to share her opinion on the matter, but I really think she went a little bit far with this song, and she crossed the line with the video. The song itself isn't bad. It's catchy, but the lyrics are too much. 3.5/5

    2. Who Knew - Without doubt, Who Knew is the best song on the album. It's really beautiful and shows off her softer side. I remember listening to this song on the radio when i was like, 8. Who knew that one day, I'd love it as much as I do. It's just... amazing. It's one of the best songs of all time. 5/5

    3. Long Way to Happy - It's a cool song. I love the chorus. It's more countryish-rock that most of the CD. It has a really great vibe. I love the instermental in it. It's not anything special, though. It really gets overshadowed by the rest of the CD. 3.5/5

    4. Nobody Knows - It's a really strong ballad. Everything about it is great. It has so much power to it. Her vocals are amazing here. 4/5

    5. Dear Mr. President - Lots of controversy over this track. No matter your political party, you really have to think about the lyrics for a minute. They don't really do anything to offend republicans. It could apply to any president. It really describes why I will never be president. 4/5

    6. I'm Not Dead - Her album titles always seem to be some of the weaker songs on the album. I could think of a better album name. That being said, this is a little better than her other title tracks, but still overshadowed by the rest of the CD. It's just not my cup of tea. 3/5

    7. Cuz I Can - This is one of the more generic songs on the CD. I try to stay away from generic music, but Cuz I Can is pretty catchy. It's got a really powerful beat. The lyrics are well written, but the message is messy. 3.5/5

    8. Leave Me Alone (I'm Lonely) - The best track since Who Knew. The chorus is super catchy & fun, but it's not generic at all. It's got nice lyrics, too. It's one of those songs that make you want to dance and all that. 4.5/5

    9. U + Ur Hand - One of the standouts. The chorus is one of the best on the album. The verses are pretty weak though. It's a really fun track. It'll def make you dance. 4/5

    10. Runaway - Runaway is one of the best songs on the CD. Everything about it is absoulutely flawless. It has really nice lyrics. The beat is a little slow, but it's not bad. The chorus is to die for. It's not upbeat, but it's really nice and one of the best on the CD. 5/5

    11. The One That Got Away - The album goes acoustic for TOTGA. Not sure about it though. The lyrics are nice, but "He made cappactinos, what kind of man makes cappatinos?" Really? I know she can do better than that. It's really nice, though. 3.5/5

    12. I Got Money Now - I'm not sure if putting this after The One That Got Away was a good idea. It might get a little boring by this point. It's more R&Bish than the rest of the CD. I'm not sure the point of the song. She has money now, so everything is okay? Doesn't sound like the message I'd expect from her. Anyways, it's an okay song. 3/5

    13. Conversations With My 13 Year Old Self - It's such a beautiful song. It's really sad, and I think she did a great job with it. It's really haunting, and one of the best songs on the CD. 5/5

    14. I Have Seen The Rain - The song means a special meaning to her, so I think it does have its place on the CD. Acoustic songs aren't her high point. The lyrics are really nice, though. 3.5/5

    15. Heartbreaker - Leaving this off of the standard edition was a mistake. It's better than most of the songs that did make the standard album. It's got a great rock style to it. 4/5

    16. Centerfold - It's a great song, and I would have rather seen this than any of the acoustic music. It's not catchy, but rock isn't made to be catchy. 4/5

    17. Fingers - What's with that music? If you pitched it, it could be a Britney Spears song. Fortunately, I'm a huge Britney fan, and Britney def does clubby songs better. P!nk should stick to rock-pop, as that's what she does best.

    It all comes down to if you like P!nk or not. If you love her, you'll love the album. If you don't love her, just stay away from it. But this is the worst P!nk album yet. Expand
