    There's obviously no punk in P!nk anymore and the lyrics also got worse. But 'The Truth About Love' is a pretty solid album, though. Her storytelling is nice, she can sing got and all the three features are set well. Alas, there's not any song that stands out from the whole work and they tried too hard to make it sound nice for the album. Sorry, P!nk, but saying the f-word doesn't make you punk.

    Pink never reinvents itself, if you pick up all the tracks of each album, mix them and then listen to them, you will not know which song belongs to each album.

    Some very good songs, others are noisy and screechy and a bit irritating. I do find the language used appropriate for Pink but sometimes it is present in unusual places. I like some of the songs and skip some. A bit samesy but decent nonetheless.

    Kind of suffers from the same problem Kelly Clarkson's "Stronger" suffers. Both albums end up falling flat because of the production and some lazy writing, which are nowhere as good as their musical talents, mostly as singers.

    The album is solid the only problem i have with it is that i feel she has been releasing the same album ever since I'm Not Dead, wish she could ge out of her comfort zone and experiment more.

    Pink works best as a one-woman army.

    Truth falls in line with the Kelly-Ke$ha-Katy dance-pop fare du jour.

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