Oct 16, 2017Trauma's chilled-out middle sags, but "Revenge," her bad-romance duet with Eminem, is an early shot of energy; Max Martin and Shellback's homage to Dr. Dre's skip-step beats may be too on the nose, but Em's rhymes nicely recall a time when even lunatics rode bright hooks.
Q MagazineOct 24, 2017An album with dirgeful ballads, though they do at least let her show off her excellent voice. [Dec 2017, p.109]
Oct 18, 2017Although Beautiful Trauma does stick to an overarching emotional theme more than most of her excellent recent albums, Trauma is nonetheless an odd, morose beast that at times plays into Pink’s worst instincts (i.e. leaning towards cliché when she never really had problem avoiding it before).

FiqueiCom Beautiful Trauma, P!nk consegue trazer de volta seu estilo já conhecido, senti exatamente isso ao escutar Whatever You Want. Fiquei surpreso, positivamente, com a parceria do Eminem em Revenge. Acredito que ela tenha evoluído bastante com esse álbum e fico feliz com isso (mas ainda prefiro o The Truth About Love).

That is exactly what “Beautiful Trauma” is about: a compilation of generic pop and pop rock songs and ballads that kind of go around the same tempos, sounds and even lyrics.
That doesn’t mean, though, that it is an atrocious piece of work. It isn’t because, at the end of the day, we all love easy hits and easy choruses to sing along, don’t we? I have got used to the record and I can sing along to almost 80% of its choruses. My main issue here is again the lack of uniqueness and risks. While I said “Beautiful Trauma” isn’t a bad work, there are a couple of atrocious songs, the main one being the collaboration with Eminem. “Revenge” is just a really, really bad song. It sounds childish, immature, wannabe and just forced. Up ‘til this day I can’t believe Eminem signed up for this. The lyrics are cringe-worthy and I seriously hope this doesn’t see the light of day as a single as I know radios are going to eat it up based on the artists. The final ballad - “You Get Me Love” - is another song that I simply can’t get into. The chorus being extremely high-pitched next to soft verses sounds weird and actually scary as one isn’t expecting that amount of screams in the middle of a nice subtle song.
What’s left to come isn’t as bad. There’s another cheesy ballad (“Wild Hearts Can’t Be Broken”) and a few uninspired songs (“What About Us” or “For Now”) but the remaining eight songs are good. “Secrets” must be the surprise of the album. While it isn’t my favorite track, it gives me “Funhouse” vibes for being fun and out of the box; “I Am Here”, while being quite generic, gives anyone a boost of energy and self-confidence and I could never go against that. My favorite track is really “Better Life”. The minimalistic production along with the lugging chorus makes it so interesting and reminds of something the (extinct?) group fun. would do.
At this point, you may feel like I am a hater of P!nk’s ballads, I am not. Let’s talk about “Barbies”. While sonically it may sound a bit uninteresting, lyrically it blows anyone’s mind. The song discusses the flaws of growing up… Of how we can’t avoid problems coming our way without solving them. In the song P!nk repeats: “I wish I could go back to playing Barbies in my room, they never say that you gotta grow up quite this soon”. That’s a beautiful metaphor that just blew my mind the first time I heard it.
To conclude, the record is built off two other great (though generic) Pop Rock songs such as “Whatever You Want” and “Where We Go”. While being P!nk’s most familiar sound, unfortunately it just fits her so well and become impossible not to sing along or wanting to repeat the play… And overall, it is impossible to hate on P!nk, she fought so hard to be where she is, to get the respect she deserved and to become the role model she had to be, she is definitely one of my generation’s most successful pop singers and she leaves us proud.… Expand
