      Debut album from Pink

      I only became a fan of singer Pink on the release of her second album Missundaztood, but she actually released a CD back in 2000. This was back when Pink actually had pink hair, and this album is completely different from any she released afterwards. Later, she began to assert herself some more and make the kind of music she wanted to, but this album is pure R & B. In fact, I went for years not knowing that the song Most Girls, which I'd heard several times, was actually sung by Pink!

      The album opens with a selection of R & B tracks, midtempo with rhythm and full of attitude. The aforementioned Most Girls stands out, a strong assertive track about wanting real love and not being impressed by material things. It sounds a bit like Destiny's Child. Hell Wit Ya is about not moping over someone who doesn't treat you well, while Split Personality is a decent R & B song that kick starts the album.

      There You Go is another assertive song about refusing to take back an ex, while You Make Me Sick is a catchy track about wanting someone against your better judgement.

      Later in the album, we get a glut of pop ballads. Let Me Let You Know is a straightforward R & B ballad while Love Is Such A Crazy Thing makes use of piano in the intro before moving into a R & B beat. Stop Falling is also a sweet ballad.

      Other midtempo R & B songs make it to this half of the album too. Private Show is influenced by hip-hop while Hiccup has a quirky beat and Is It Love is a Destiny's Child-esque track.

      The album closes with remixes of There You Go and Most Girls, which are decent enough but nothing special.

      Track Listing
      1. Split Personality
      2. Hell Wit Ya
      3. Most Girls
      4. There You Go
      5. You Make Me Sick
      6. Let Me Let You Know
      7. Love Is Such a Crazy Thing
      8. Private Show
      9. Can't Take Me Home
      10. Stop Falling
      11. Do What U Do
      12. Hiccup
      13. Is It Love
      14. There You Go [Sovereign Mix]
      15. Most Girls [X-Men Vocal Mix]

      I enjoy listening to this album sometimes, simply because it's so different to Pink's other material. There are some decent R & B songs on here particularly at the beginning of the album. However, the album sounds rather generic, as if it could have been sung by any R & B singer. I imagine that if Pink had stuck with this kind of material she wouldn't have lasted very long - her personality doesn't really shine through, and she doesn't always sound particularly sincere, as she does on her later music. Like Kelly Clarkson, she broke away from the mould her record company wanted to put her in, and should be applauded for that.

      Pink's debut album

      "Can't Take Me Home" came out as the debut album from the Pennsylvania-born R&B, Rock and Pop singer Pink. This one came out in 2000 and was her breakthrough release as she performed in a style which appeared to fit in more with the Soul influences which she was raised on (which later went more towards the Rock and Pop world) as she got backing from the R&B singer and producer Babyface.

      1. "Split Personality"

      Getting the album going, you have a track which has here performing in a manner which really appears to fit in the style of 1998-2000 R&B, and it draws especially close resemblance to what Kelis was doing around this time and so it was really current in what it does for a decent opening cut as a tune to introduce what this has to offer from her.

      **Three Stars**

      2. "Hell Wit Ya"

      You see as we move on through the thing, you get one which appears it take on in more influence from one of the people who has come to work on the production of this as this open has to have a lot of Kandi Burress input in it with the ex-Xscape members Bass-inspiered style driving the way this one is composed. Lyrically, she concentrates on the hard time soft h relationship with her man.

      **Four Stars**

      3. "Most Girls"

      With Babyface behind the way this one is done, you find that here she gets into what was her second single as she gets into some appealing R&B work, in which she comes up with some of the freakiest melodies to guide her as she talks of how she differs from the girls out there in what her ideal man involves nothing more than love.

      **Five Stars**

      4. "There You Go"
      This was her debut single (from this single at least) and one which really made a big impact as it had burst through with some bouncy beats from Kandi doing one which really fitted in with the way R&B was going at the time with herself and others such as Destiny's Child coming with songs about woman getting back at partners they have fallen out with.

      **Five Stars**

      5. "You Make Me Sick"

      Here was another of the popular hits from the album, but this one didn't really live as much up the hype of those which came prior to it with it taking on a much more relaxed format and seeing her put much more Pop into the music. Nonetheless, it is still a nice one and has her working up to her strengths.

      **Four Stars**

      6. "Let Me Let You Know"

      The tune prior to it now sounds to have been a transitional tune as the music calms down as she chooses to perform more of the same sort of stuff with the subject dealing with breakups, but with a much more gentle approach on beats partly produced by Tricky Stewart. I wasn't as keen of this kind of work, but it does let her bring out the best in her vocal ability.

      **Three Stars**

      7. "Love Is Such A Crazy Thing"

      The grungy beats which you get from this one are an aspect of the music which you can't help but get down to it, and I felt that this is what brings you into the thing as the content of the material doesn't really change all that much, but with such engaging, beats, you don't really take much notice of this issue.

      **Four Stars**

      8. "Private Show"

      Here you have a tune which brings the tempo up a bit, and I felt that that this was really needed at this point as the thing wasn't really getting that much in the way of boosts, but with this lick-rich recording having her getting into much more energetic music, it brings you back in to the more lively and invited work.

      **Four Stars**

      9. "Can't Take Me Home"

      In the eponymous track form the album, you have amongst the highest-quality material on the whole thing as you see that we are led into more of the bouncy work which makes to take notice of what she does. I'm surprised that this wasn't chosen as a single as it really sounds to be of the same standard of the premiering R&B acts from the time.

      **Five Stars**

      10. "Stop Falling"

      You see a big contrast from what you just got as you go from a high right down towards much more sombre material form her. In this song you find that alongside minimal production see sings in a Soul style to fit in with the motive nature of the recording. It wasn't something which really appealed to me, but this calmer side was required at some point.

      **Two Stars**

      11. "Do What U Do"

      I was pleased to see that the downer which was brought about just before it as you find that she is backed by a funky composition for this one to bounce right off hat you got just before it to twist things towards the much more appealing and engaging stuff from it. It is an up-lifter and I felt that it was effective in what it did.

      **Four Stars**

      12. "Hiccup"

      I thought that this was a nice original track from her as you see just how well she can write her material. It is an effective construction and she really goes all-out with it, in spite of the fact that it was potentially risky, but I felt that that the contemporary beats kept it together and it prevented things from falling apart.

      **Four Stars**

      13. "Is It Love"

      Closing the album off, you see on which deals with the same sort of things as wt you get at just about every other song on the album and for this reason I felt that it was a strong at representing all you got from the album to round it ff well. In addition to this, I felt that the complex style of production was another aspect which made you remember what people enjoyed most about the biggest tunes form the album.

      **Four Stars**

      Although a few of the tunes on the album aren't that appealing, the majority of what you get from this record is of a high quality and sees Pink working at her optimum potential when performing in the R&B style. I would recommend it to not only fans of her later music, but those into the Pop-R&B acts such as Destiny's Child, Jennifer Lopez and Christina Aguilera would enjoy this too.

        Pink's debut CD is definitely worth at least checking out - even if it is six years old

        Even though this CD was released six years ago (wow at how time as flew), I decided to write this review to let people know how fantastic this CD really is.

        This is the fabulous P!NK's debut and this album made sure that Pink left her mark in R'n'B. In a way, it's kind of sad the way Pink left her R'n'B past behind her, even if she did go onto much better things. Nowadays Pink is hardly even known as an R'n'B artist, and on her current I'm Not Dead Tour, the only song from this album she is performing is the lead debut single, "There U Go" - and even that is a flamenco remix. Pink claims that she did not like creating the music on this CD, or her image at the time with the bright Pink bright hair, but she was forced to because she had relinquished control to her music label (LaFace).

        Nevertheless, whether Pink's heart was in it or not this is a stunning debut which is a shame to sweep under the rug as the past, and everybody who is a Pink-rock fan or an R'n'B lover should definitely listen to this CD. Let's begin with the review.

        So, Pink opens the roots of her music career with tracks with a song called "Split Personality". This is very pop as well as R'n'B. I think of this song as the r'n'b version of "Don't Let Me Get Me" - it basically touches the same message. Pink is at war with herself, and doesn't know what to do. Split Personality focuses on her being two people fused into one. "Can you help me/Does anybody hear me/Can they even see me?/This is my reality" and "So I'm putting it all on the table/You don't know me well enough to label me/sick or even disturbed/When you break it down I'm just two girls". This is a great track, fun and pop-py but with a serious and quite sad message. This song was set to be released as the album's fourth single, but Pink decided to participate in the hugly successful Lady Marmalade collaboration instead. "Split Personality" isn't one of Pink's best vocally - but that's yet to come.

        Track 2, "Hell Wit Ya", is a catchy little track about an ex-boyfriend who was a total jerk, but now treats his new girlfriend perfectly, and Pink's jealous. This song just has an air of uniqueness about it, and I love it. Pink shows her first signs of amazing vocal ability towards the end of the track - "What does she do to you/To make you give her everything/Like you never did for me?/Call it jealousy, but it's killing me/Cos all the time that you were mine/You didn't treat me right". This is a powerful track and the chorus to this day astounds me, it's so perfectly bouncy and catchy.

        "Most Girls" is about Pink wanting more than other people - she wants real love. This is no slushy track, Pink keeps it street but at the same time with an emotive touch. She sings about her previous materialistic needs in a man "Seek for the man whose got the means/To be giving you diamond rings/It's what every fly girl could want/Or even dream", and what she wants in a man now. The song is about emotional and personal growth, and this is one of the best songs on the album. The chorus certainly packs a punch to it with a rock influence which blends perfectly well with the R'n'B verses. In all my years as a music fanatic, this is one of the most well-produced and executed songs I've ever heard. It performed deservedly well in the charts as the second single from the album, reaching #5 on the UK Charts and #4 over in the States.

        Here comes track 4, Pink's groundbreaking debut single, "There U Go". This is an infectiously catchy R'n'B pop tune about Pink being fed up of a guy fooling about and letting him go. "Please don't come around talking bout how you changed/How you said goodbye to what's-her-name/All it sounds like to me is new game". This song reached #6 on the UK charts in 2000, and #7 in the States. To this day me and my friends adore and sing this song. This is an R'n'B track which lets Pink show her vocal ability and attitude - a perfect Pink mix and an ideal lead single. This song should never be forgotten.

        The first slow song on the album is track 5, "Let Me Let You Know". This is a perfect R'n'B ballad, and whilst it cannot even compare to the other ballad on the album (track 10, "Stop Falling), this is still a really nice, strong song. Most people identify this as a weak spot on the album, but I think it's a lovely song on which Pink sounds great. The song is basically about her leaving her guy - "Let me let you know/Yeah/That I'm leaving baby/Let me let you know/I don't know where I'm going/But I'm going far from here". The songs does get better towards the end, with a very powerful climax which really puts Pink's vocals to the test - and she passes with flying colours.

        Track 6 is the third and last single released from the album, "You Make Me Sick". This isn't terribly different from "There U Go", but it's much more r'n'b with even a tinge of hip-hop. This is extremely catchy and well executed. "You make me sick/I want you when I'm hanging it/Got me lit like a candlestick/Get too hot when you touch the tip/..". As you can see the lyrics one the song are lacking a little depth, but throughout the entire song they fuse together absolutely perfectly. This track has a strong beat to it which really enforced the whole track. This song performed the least well out of the three singles in the charts, reaching only #9 in the UK and #33 in the States. "You Make Me Sick", however, is in no way worse than the previous two singles.

        "Love Is Such A Crazy Thing" is one of the most beautiful songs I've ever heard, and my personal favourite on the CD. It begins with the striking chords of the piano, and the instruments build up until the track develops into a mid-tempo R'n'B tune. Add Pink's gentle vocals and you have yourself a masterpiece. "Love is such a crazy thing/Never understood the way I was supposed to feel/Is this love for real?" - the chorus blends in well with the verses and the music remains similar throughout. This is a touching track with tons of emotion from Pink. If you have ever heard "Love Song" (the amazing but too short) track from "Try This" (Pink's third CD), then imagine that, extended with a modern and beautiful R'n'B collection of music put to it. This song is astounding, and this track should be heard by everybody.

        After the stunning love-struck track before it, Pink brings you back down to street R'n'B with track 8, "Private Show". It's quite difficult to determine the message in this song, apart from some guy who just wants sex from somebody. Lewd and confusing message aside, this is a strong catchy R'n'B track which lets Pink show off her vocals a bit towards the end. "He don't know/Maybe if he wasn't such a jigalo/I could let him stay instead I'll let him go/Cos all he wants from me is a private show". The lyrics are quite lacklustre, but they compliment each other superbly and give the song a mellow, down to earth r'n'b sound to it.

        Track 9 is the album titled track, "Can't Take Me Home". I see this song as a mix of absolutely everything you've heard so far on the CD, with elements of pop, r'n'b, powerful vocals and swear words. The result of this fusion is really good, and the chorus reminds me a little of "Hell Wit Ya". "How can you love me/And then just leave me?/Because you see somebody lookin' and you think they disagree".

        I mentioned track 10, "Stop Falling", before when I reviewed "Let Me Let You Know". This is THE ballad of the album, and this song will totally blow you away. By far one of Pink's best vocally - EVER. The song still has an r'n'b tinge to it, but the music isn't really noticed below Pink's astounding voice. The climax is devestating, and you'll sit there thinking, "Wow, I didn't know Pink could sing THIS good." This song stands out on the album as its very musically different from the other tracks. The song is pretty deep too - it's about somebody falling for Pink, but she is not ready to commit to a serious relationship. "I ain't lookin for a steady thing/I ain't lookin for what love brings/I'm still young and I ain't ready babe/I'm still lookin for some better days". This song is absolutely fantastic, in a word.

        Whilst it's not quite as good and catchy as the previous r'n'b tracks like "There U Go" and "You Make Me Sick", "Do What U Do" is still a nice down to earth r'n'b track. It's about basically being who you are, and doing what you want. "I say/Do what u do/Say what u say/Mean what you mean when you say". This isn't a highlight of the CD, but it's still a strong track on the album.

        Track 12, "Hiccup", however, matches up to the rest of the album with it's strong r'n'b feel with an extremely strong and catchy chorus. "Why everytime I try to tell you how it feel/It's like a hiccup-cup-cup/It just won't come-come". The lyrics are a little lacking, but this a catchy track which I know is very popular among Pink fans.

        "Is It Love?" rounds off the CD as track 13. I have to say, this is an extremely weak song on the album and a bad way to end an astounding CD. It seems to be another attempt at catchy r'n'b, but this time it's not pulled off. "Is it love/Or just a curse?/Do you feel good/When I hurt?". This, in my opinion, should have been left off the album - 12 tracks is good enough. The lyrics are bad, Pink's vocals are weak in parts (mainly the chorus - but how much can you do with such abysmal lyrics?) and the music is boring and repetitive. This is the only bad song on the album, and it's quite disappointing.

        Overall, this is a fantastic debut and no CD collection is complete without it. You need this CD - and as a bonus, it's going for ridiculously cheap nowadays. I saw HMV selling it for around four pounds, as was Music Zone. If you see this - pick it up. Or, visit EBay now and grab a copy for about two pounds. It's totally worth it. You even get two remixes as bonus tracks - two garage mixes of "There U Go" and "You Make Me Sick". The only bad thing about this album is, unlike Pink's other follow-up albums, this may not appeal to the masses as it's very r'n'b pop throughout. Pink certainly left her mark this time around, and she can truly be an R'n'B chick - whether she wants to or not.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          I can see it coming, everything is becoming pink. Pink is definitely in the in color thanks to the beautiful and soulful, r&b singer Pink. With her outrageous hair, her individuality, outstanding voice, and her unique lyrics, Pink bursts unto the stage perfectly. Her sound is so different from what I've been hearing lately and I like it. A nice plus is that she actually writes some of her songs. When I first heard the single, There You Go, It made me want to know who was this Pink person, so I was in a local Best Buy and I saw the cd. The cover really looked weird and it turned off the idea of buying the cd. So, the fool I am left and about a couple weeks later, her second single, Most Girls, came on the radio and that's when I KNEW I had to buy this cd. I'm happy I did, and now I know not to judge something by it's cover. (Sorry for the cliche') Anyway, let's go through a walk through the cd "Can't Take Me Home". Split Personality The guitar bit at the beginning sounds so familiar! Anyway, this is a great song to start off the cd. I talks about all the sides of Pink(Alicia Moore). The parts where she is talking like, "Can't no man be trusted!" and "You're my friend...Pink? ...PINK?!" are great additions and add character to the song. The beat is medium/fast paced and the song is very catchy. Grade: A+ Hell Wit Ya The pace gets faster and the beat is phat. This is a great song to listen to when you're getting ready to do something. It just has so much energy. The lyrics are great too! It's that "I'm a girl and I'm mad!" kind of song that many female singers do, like Alanis Morissette, that's cool. "I was in love wit ya, but the hell wit ya 'cuz you didn't wanna treat me right!". Pink really knows how to express herself! Grade: A Most Girls I honestly have to say this is my favorite song off the alb
          um. This is the second single from her first album. The guitar and the drums and bass are great and perfect. I absolutely love the catchy chorus. I tend to hum this all day and bother my friends. "Most girls want a man with a Bling-Bling, got my on thing, got the ching-ching. I just want real love! Most girls want a man with the mean green, don't wanna dance if he can't be everything that I dreamed off, a man that understands real love!" This song, also written by Babyface, is a great to listen to when you're just sitting around or driving places. Grade: A+ There You Go Probably everyone and their uncle has heard this song in one form or another. Her first single she comes out with hits #1 for awhile and guess why? It's great! This is a very cool, up-beat song about an ex-boyfriend who wants to get the hook-up with his ex-girlfriend again, but she puts up her hand and waves "bye-bye"! "There you go looking pitiful just because I let you go". It's a song everyone can relate to. Hey, even me, even though I'm a guy. So anyway, this song features some cool, and original beats to dance to the whole is just very catchy. I mean, come on! Even my mother likes it!! Grade: A+ You Make me Sick The short phone conversation at the beginning of the song is kind of funny. I wonder what the person over the other line says that makes Pink laugh. The song is fast and features a mad bass and it's something to bob your head to. The chorus is really well put together, but the overall song is still pretty good. The little opera singing that plays in the background is placed weirdly, but it works and I like it. Grade: B Let Me Let You Know Then suddenly the pace slows way done, and by the end of this song you're wondering what happen to the songs that were like 1-4. Nevertheless, this is is an OK song, but not a song you would put on repeat. I usually don't listen to this t
          rack. The thing I really like about this song is the bridge near the end of the song. It just sounds so cool. But it can't save the un-catchy chorus and the forgettable ballad. Grade: C Love is Such a Crazy Thing I absolutely love the piano mixed with the bass and the guitar and with the beat. This song goes a little faster than the last one, and the lyrics are really sweet. It kind of sounds like Mariah Carey sprinkled with Christina A. and with Pink's uniqueness. "You are my love, my only love, baby my heart belongs you." There's something else about this song I can't put my finger on... You just have to hear it. Grade: A Private Show Then we get back the kind of songs we heard at the beginning of this cd. This song sounds like something you could play at a dance club or jam to it at a party. The bass is strong and the beat is phat. This song has a unique sound to it with a great vice talent. Definite listen to. Grade: B+ Can't Take Me Home Suddenly we're kicked back into first gear with this excellent dance, r&b song. The beat is very fast and it just makes you want to move any part of your body that needs moving. "Can't take me home mama 'cause she wouldn't think I'm proper." The chorus is fast and sort of catchy and the beat is just great! Just listening to it just want me to just start dancing! Grade: A Stop Falling ...And then everything slows way down again, but with a great slow ballad. This song really highlights Pink's outstanding singing abilities. It's just a treat to listen to this up and coming singer sing so well. "I ain’t lookin’ for a steady thing, I ain’t lookin’ for what love brings, I’m still young and I ain’t ready babe". The song is about a girl that is not ready to settle down and is telling a guy to stop falling for her. It's just a beautiful ballad, and the
          only good one on the cd. Grade: A+ Do What U Do There's is almost always a song on a cd I don't like and to the point that I hate it. Some cd's are exceptions, unfortunately, but not this one. This song is pretty ugly. The melody is very annoying and the song just wants you change the song. The beat and pace is pretty decent, but it can't save this one. Not even Pink can throw a raft to this one. Grade: C Hiccup Oh my gosh, this song is so cool! The bass is phat and it wants me to get in my car and put it on full blast. I tell you, you have to try it some time. The beat is great and mix that with the bass, the the instruments, and Pink's amazing voice - you get a great fast paced song to listen to anytime and anywhere. Driving around, at a party or dance club, or just hanging out. "Why every time I try to tell you how I feel it’s like a hiccup-cup-cup that just won’t come-come" The chorus is pretty funny and the hiccup things she does are questionable, but I can deal with it. Grade: A Is It Love Why does this have to the end? This song is very repetitive at the beginning; she keeps the same tone of voice the whole beginning and all of the chorus singing only about three notes over and over. In other words, the chorus is very bad and not catchy at all. Not a very good way to end this great cd, but what are you going to do? The song is very mellow and medium paced beats. It doesn't really show Pink's singing abilities until the part of the middle and the end, excluding the chorus. Grade: D+ I'm so happy I got this cd still even with it's minor exceptions, because it is a great r&b album and something to listen to when I just want something different. Pink has her own special, unique talent and sound. I'm really interested in what else she will do later in life. I really do think she'll stick around for the long run and won
          9;t be a one-hit wonder. If you want more information on this talented artist, visit her site at www.pinkspage.com or check out www.peeps.com/pink, which is another good about her. Remember, Think Pink.

            Okay well it has been put to me that i leave a few more spaces between paragraphs, and those who have read my opinions will know that when i write there is no stopping me, so i'll have a good go chris, kay?! I got Pinks album the day of release, mainly out of curiosity, i got it back in 2000 and still continue to play it. I had heard "There you go" and thought that it was brilliant and one which showed the men who's boss, sorry guys! Her voice is very smooth and is easily diverse, she can do the up-tempo attitude songs, the ballads and rap. I think that it has been noted as being one for the ladies, i would have to agree on this one, it is very much centred on the relationships between the girl & guy and gives the womans perspective in a way that many girls can relate to, which i think sets it apart from other female artists, who tend to only talk about heartbreak etc in slow, powerful ballads, yet Pink brings this across more soulfully, eg "stop falling" Yet still manages to mantain her uniqueness. "Can't take me home" contains 13 songs in total, although the special edition has two more which are remixes of "there you go"and "most girls", the album is co-written by her and laFace, not only can she sing , perform wonderfully, but she can also write. There arn't many female artists which i can honestly say i admire, but Pink is an exception, she is respectable in the fact she does not try and sell her looks more than her music, she sells what she does best, which is undoubtably her R'n'B talent. There are songs for any occasion and any mood, like i said before i still play it now, it is not an album which you listen to it a few times then dis-regard, its one which i personally feel is timeless. I would certainly recommend it to anyone who was uncertain whether to buy it. Her new album is hopefully out over the next few months and i'm really looking fo
            rward to the Janet Tour as pink is the special gust, So lets just hope that she will have enough positive feedback and will bring her show over here. Keep up the good work :)

              I recentley bought a copy of Can't Take Me Home, by Pink. She has had a couple of hits in the uk charts off this album including track three Most Girls, track four There You Go and track five You Make Me Sick. This album also has some ballads which are quite good. A note for parents though the title track Can't Take Me Home has the f word all through it. Well gentlemen! this album always goes down well with the ladies, and pink herself's not too bad on the old eyes!!!

              I think that most people will be quite surpised by this album. PINK caught my attention by the almost non-stop playing of her single 'There you go' on MTV and other music channels on sky, I really liked the song and a friend bought me her album as a present for my birthday on the strength of this. I had expected to just play the 'hit' song and think nothing else of the rest of the album - how wrong could I be! PINK has a really really strong voice which can carry off both the dancefloor numbers and the slower soulful tracks. Her musical sound is on the edgy side, and it definitely does her justice. Can't Take Me Home, her debut album, is a bit rough on men - from "Hell Wit Ya" and "Most Girls", to her first single, "There You Go". The lyrics are very sharp and biting to the ears of men, pretty scary stuff! However, not all of these songs are a stab at the male species. PINK lets loose her emotional side in "Stop Falling" and "Is it Love?". These songs prove to be an excellent display of PINK's vocal power, and a search for what she sees as "true love". The packaging is very standard with a couple of photos and a track listing inside. The best track for me has to be 'Love is such a crazy thing' which has a fantastic squishy 303 acid line running under the track. Very similar to Destiny’s Child and En Vogue etc. I think that on the soulful tracks she has a similar voice to Mariah Carey! Go on and treat yourself to Pink - You'll love her!

                ...when applied to cans and bottles, but not music. Admittedly the three singles she released were beautifully crafted, and I was expecting much of the same. But not THAT similar! I hope Pink saving loads of different material to shock us, if she wants to make it to a second album, because I'm sure there is talent lurking underneath the pink hair...somewhere. Please don't hate me. Even artists such as Craig David, although extremely talented, can be very samey. Those listening to Radio1 will have noticed the different mix of his recent song was played much more than the original, which is sooo similar to 'Walking Away'. Anyway, back to the point. I would still recommend this album, if you need to chill, if you want a little bit of background music, but don't expect miracles.

                  Pink is an artist that you can only take in so much especially when it is played on THE BOX 24/7 i like her latest song and it has a fat beat but the first song "There you go" is so annoying now, but she is a great artist and i predict she will make it big in the future but she is such a violent person In both videos so far she damages property (the bike through the window) and the boxing match in the second, although i wouldn't mess with her as she is one mean lean fighting machine!! She is attractive but she likes nudity and tightr skimpy clothing but surly this will set off kids to wear these cloths and dying their hair different colours and getting into trouble at school or with their parents. Its a bad case of role models and Pink is not a good role model in my opinion

                  Pink's debut single was really milked for all it was worth and the second song was little better, but we all have to admit, "there you go" and "most girls" are really excellent songs and there is no doubt about Pink's skill as a singer-songwriter. Whether you prefer the more R n B flavours of "There you go" or the eclectic style of "Most girls", "Can't take me home" provides them both and many more!Not only can Pink make the music, make some excellent videos, especially "there you go", but she is one sexy woman, she is incredibly attractive and if she keeps on bringing out songs of this calibre, who knows where she'll end up???

                  I have to admit it took a few times for me to fully appreciate Pink's debut track 'There you go', but once it was blarring out nice and hard in the car, and the bass started to kick in I had a big smile on my face and I just thought to myself 'yeah!!!' So I promptly went out and bought her album, and I have to say that it is the best album I have bought for a long time, all the tracks are kicking, with just the right mix of vocals with bass, and if you have a good system in your car then the tunes go right through you. My favourite track on the album has got to be the second track 'Hell Wit Ya', the background bass on that track just has to be turned up loud. Throughout the album Pink manages to mix a number of styles together, either sepreately or two or three types of style in one track. She starts with a bit of R'n'B and then moves onto a Hip Hop beat, and then throws in a little soul. This is done so well that you actually feel that you have bought three albums in one. I can't wait for some of her new stuff, hopefully she will be able to maintain the live mix that she has with this album.

                  Blatantly ignoring the title of the album, I bought it and took it home, and I'm very glad I did. After hearing her debut single, "There you go", I decided to immediately buy the album. You can even get the whole video of "There you go" with great quality soundtrack for free at www.peeps.com. Go to the Pink section and then videos. The whole album is great, in fact I can't think of a single track I would skip. The music is a mix of upbeat R 'n B with a bit too much man-hating, but you can get over it. The tracks all have great choruses, very memorable melodies and the singing is also very good. If you're looking for something different to the usual love songs, this is it. Go buy it, you won't regret it.
