    Until the last two songs, whose overwrought drama I don't have to like just because I trust its verisimilitude, they hit every time.

    It's weird and willfully, proudly human, a big pop album about real emotions and one of P!nk's wildest rides.

    It's just a shame she gave album space to Mariah-slick motivational ballads such as The Great Escape, which detract from an otherwise fierce record.

    Her sixth studio album, The Truth About Love, is, as usual, an assortment of potential singles.

    It's not the left-field pop classic she seems capable of one day creating, but it also contains a handful of tracks that laser in on exactly what she does best.

    For major label singer-songwriter stuff, not bad. Moore knows her way around hooks.

    [The Truth About Love] veers between two modes: workmanlike ballads delivered with beyond-workmanlike shading; and chunky guitar pop stuffed with shouty, bad-girl choruses. Unfortunately the second dominates.

    'The Truth About Love' must be P!nk's best album to date.
    I even would call it the best Album of the year. You will find every thing you want
    on this record. Songs to dance, songs to laugh, songs to think and songs to cry.

    It's a true masterpiece and I will never regret buying it.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. I'll be honest! I'm a huge P!nk fan since the I'm Not Dead record which is definitely her best album in my opinion but I made a mistake... The Truth About Love is also as good as I'm Not Dead but surpassed it! P!nk brings a new level to her music, her lyrics are powerful as always but this album has something that made me love it more! P!nk's vocals are stunning because of the reducing smoke! The highlight songs from this album are Are We All We Are, Try, Just Give Me A Reason, True Love, The Truth About Love, Walk of Shame, The Great Escape, Is This Thing On?, Run and Chaos & Piss... The whole album is a MASTERPIECE and of course is the Album of the Year... I'm sure that P!nk has many chances for Grammy Awards this year and really deserves to win! Her upcoming Tour will be obviously her best since Funhouse Tour, can't wait... Expand

    This album totally worth waiting. P!nk is back with amazing new material. This album have amazing songs, that will make you dance, will cheer you up. The great example is the song 'The Great Escape'. I can relate to this song and I really feel, like P!nk can understand me. I think that this album is worth buying! Expand

    "[The Truth About Love] is honestly Pink's best effort since "I'm Not Dead". It shows a more demure, yet her signature outrageous side as well. With songs including "Blow Me (One Last Kiss)", 'How Come Your Not Hear?" and "Slut Like You", it shows the real Pink we've been waiting for. But songs like "Try" and "Just Give Me a Reason" shows the other side of Pink. You can tell the album is basically a split album of personality. Great album Pink" Expand

    The Truth About Love is definitely a very interesting album. Is one of the best ones on Pink's career. The sound is attractive, the voice shows improvement and all the collaborations are very well succeeded. Of course that is not a great and stunning album but is delighting to hear and sing along.

    Why after more than 10 years in the industry she's still singing the same song to me?
    The only redeemable tracks this album has is Just Give
    a Reason and Try and the last one is a cover. Expand
