  • Summary: Fresh off her hit "Lady Marmalade" remake from the "Moulin Rouge" soundtrack, the pop diva returns with her second album. Former 4 Non Blonde member Linda Perry produced and wrote most of the tracks.

  1. These are pop songs in the sense that they deliver their payloads in 90 seconds. But they're also confessional, dark, downtempo--and, OK, a little gauche sometimes, which just makes them seem realer.
  2. A fetching collection of pop confections.... ''M!ssundaztood'' captures girlish confusion with greater accuracy and delight than Alanis Morissette's supposed bible of the form, ''Jagged Little Pill."
  3. The wild thing is that M!ssundaztood not only works, it works smashingly -- a bewildering amalgam of sounds and attitudes that shouldn't fit together, but defy all odds and do.
  4. Pink has fought the record companies for control of her career and won- and with the sage advice of producers and executives she has come out with one of the best pop albums of last year.
  5. There's way too much power balladry, rawk guitar, Steven Tyler and MTV-by-numbers to make a genuinely stand-out record.
  6. 60
    The melodic shortcomings of M!ssundaztood show that those eye-popping videos aside, she's no Madonna. [#4, p.122]
  7. It works for the red-raw confessional 'Family Portrait', but everything else is so bad Natalie Imbruglia would be proud.

    Incredible. This is definitely P!nk's best album, and that's saying something. Highlights include "Just Like A Pill", "Don't Let Me Get Me", "Get The Party Started", and "Family Portrait". Expand

    Definitelyl no stand-out record, but it's worth hearing for one or two times. At times (Just Like A Pill, Don't Let Me Get Me) P!nk gets really good and in average this album is good. Her style got better with the following albums, but 'M!ssundaztood' is a succeeding sophomore including good and bad facets. Lyrically it's not virtuoso, but she's a talented singer and it's a nice release. However, I wouldn't mention it in any list of good albums... Expand
