    After M!ssundaztood, Try This was kind of a flop for me. It lacks the catchiness and emotion that M!ssundaztood had an abundance of, and only a select few of the tracks worked. But the tracks that worked did work very well (God Is A DJ, Save My Life, Last to Know). Final: If you want similar material, only better, get P!nk's album I'm Not Dead instead.

    It's not as good as Missundastood, but it's not bad. That said, how does "Oh My God," the duet with the fantastically raunchy electro-punk genderbending Peaches, manage to be so boring? The song is a waste of both women's talents.

    Everywhere I go this CD is $4.99. And I would only pay a dollar for the four or five good songs, like "Last to Know" and "Trouble". It is disappointing.

  1. Some of it sounds similar, but Pink sticks to her guns on relationship tunes ("Last to Know"), decent dance-floor jams ("Trouble," "God Is a DJ") and tougher rockers ("Try Too Hard").
  2. The areas where Try This falls down are those where P!nk eschews the eclecticism of the stronger tracks and instead produces bog-standard pop-punk or R&B tracks.
  3. 'Try This' is quite the album - most things to all people, touched by audacious greatness, and as fine an advert for imperfectionism as we could've demanded.
