    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.
  5. Sep 18, 2012
    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.
  7. Sep 14, 2012
    [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

    One of the best albums I have ever spent money on. This proves that P!nk has grown from when she started back more than a decade ago. key Tracks are How Come You're Not Here, Are we All WE Are, and Walk of Shame. Expand

    Going from the crazy "Walk of shame", arriving to the slow and sweet "Beam me up", The Truth About Love really answers P!nk's fans' needs ! Some of the hightlights of the album are the Martin-Shellback produced "Slut Like You" and the sweet sensitive "Just Give Me Reason" in which P!nk and Nate are at the top of their game ! Realllllllllyyyyy good album. I smell a Grammy-nomination in the air ! Expand

    The Truth About Love is a good album, but not P!nk's best. The lead single, Blow me (One Last Kiss), was a big disappointment for me, so I was kinda afraid for this record, but P!nk delivered another solid album. The album is typical P!nk: catchy, great, pop/rock melodies with big hit potential. I was excited about Greg Kurstin being on this album, but sadly his production isn't highlight of this album. Surprisingly, some bonus tracks are better than album tracks. The best tracks on the album are: Try, Just Give Me a Reason, Slut Like You, Where Did the Beat Go (This was actually a big surprise for me, because track brings you back to 2000 when P!nk started this journey with Can't Take Me Home). Chaos & Piss, Good Old Days, Timebomb. Really good record, but P!nk is capable of a lot more. Expand

    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
