  • Summary: Following the unexpected critical and commercial success of M!ssundaztood, Pink returns with a third, even more rock-oriented album. Linda Perry returns to helm just a few tracks, with the bulk of the producing/writing chores falling to Rancid's Tim Armstrong.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 12 out of 18
  2. Negative: 1 out of 18
  1. Try This dares Pink's huge but hardly guaranteed audience to hear the world her way--without wasting one moment on indulgent experimentation, rote grandstanding, or retreats into conformism.
  2. A hooky, engaging throwaway that expands Pink's range while holding on fiercely to her irascible inner child.

    Unlike other wannabes, Pink shares Madonna's two best assets: a keen eye for the next collaborator to further her cause and the ability to sound like Pink no matter what shape her cause takes. [Dec 2003, p.133]
  4. Pink's delivery says more than her often wince-inducing lyrics, but it means enough to make Try This an engagingly revealing album.
  5. '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.
  6. After Missundaztood, her choices were to repeat herself or to try more material outside her realm of expertise. She does a little of both on Try This, with mixed results.
  7. Pink pitches a brand of seriousness that is pure Lifetime-TV mawkishness.

    Out of all of P!nk's very respectable discography, this album seems like a compilation of the rejected tracks from M!ssundaztood. ThereforeOut of all of P!nk's very respectable discography, this album seems like a compilation of the rejected tracks from M!ssundaztood. Therefore this album shows no progression in her career. This album is boring and overall poor. Expand

It's not as good as her other albums but you can tell she is talented and actually the album has a lot of nice moments. The problem is that most of the tracks sound the same and there is no diversity, plus a couple of them are not special. I think she didn't put much effort (she said she recorded it in one week) but it definitely deserved more than it received. Expand

    DON'T TRY THIS! The title of the album is really inapplicable, because P!nk released her worst album with this. Despite a bunch of nice songs,DON'T TRY THIS! The title of the album is really inapplicable, because P!nk released her worst album with this. Despite a bunch of nice songs, 10 of the 15 songs are very uncomely. The lyrics go from mediocre to really bad and the wordplays are hurting my ears sometimes. The tunes aren't really catchy - too much electronic here - and her voice is also wack, partly. Expand
