  1. With American Idol rampant, it's nice to have this emotional hipster sticking her celebrity cred in the stupid world's face.
  2. This is the third album in a row where she's thrown a curve ball, confounding expectations by delivering a record that's wilder, stronger, and better than the last.

    Even her misses are ballsier and blusterier than most everybody else's recent hits. [7 Apr 2006, p.58]
  4. Where this translates, then, is with those willing to man up and embrace what makes Pink Pink: her spellbinding ability to render rebelliousness in all the many colors of the rainbow.
  5. A wildly ambitious album that solidifies Pink’s status as superbad funky rocker chick.
  6. Los Angeles Times

    The more serious numbers often feel clunky. [2 Apr 2006]

    Striking [and] confident. [Apr 2006, p.116]
  8. Pink's sound is more aggressive this time and owes more to '80s pop/rock than contemporary hip-hop--with dollops of folk and blues.
  9. Whether she sings rock, pop, R&B or her usual combination of all three, [Pink] is belting more urgently and taking more risks than her pop-radio contemporaries.
  10. The only sign of life is that filthy mouth and cherry-vanilla hair.
  11. It's when Pink steps outside of expectations that she turns exciting.
  12. The music here is a weird mish-mash of FM rock, folky ballads, and funky, poppy dance tracks. It makes for a diverting, interesting listen - but not a totally successful one.
  13. Pink's rhymes still rely too heavily on adolescent clichés and there's an air of contrived confessionalism throughout the album.
  14. Next time, she needs to dump the tired wild-girl shtick, unleash her lung-power and the world will fall at her feet. For now, this is just another album of production-line US pop.

    Extremely mixed results. [May 2006, p.119]
  16. Q Magazine
    60
    Be warned: wisdom, soul searching and politics often lead to earnest power chords and clenched fists when coupled with poodle rock. [May 2006, p.123]
  17. The top half of the album is stuffed to the gills with dry Pat Benatar rips and unexciting ballads.
  18. The New York Times
    40
    A wildly uneven mixture of pop treats and melodramatic misfires. [3 Apr 2006]
  19. New Musical Express (NME)
    30
    This latest effort sees her turn indistinguishable. [1 Apr 2006, p.43]

    This album is Pinks best yet!! It's vocally and lyrically intelligent and everyone should have a copy.
