5.0 out of 5 stars Pink is brilliant, April 5, 2006
This review is from: I'm Not Dead (Audio CD)
I remember reading an article when Pink was recalling the mini-disaster that was Try This, and how she knew she was spitting out really lackluster songs (save for Catch Me When I'm Sleeping). Pink has really made up for that by releasing I'm Not Dead. Each and every song has Pink's personality all over it, and if you like it, you won't be disappointed. From Pink's radio-driven Stupid Girls, where she attacks our society and its adjoined stupidity, to the thoughtful, convicting "Dear Mr. President", which is deep enough to make the strongest Republican melt. I'm glad that Pink wrote that song and didn't portray herself as an "in-your-face know-it-all". But she is very educated, and it comes through in an honest attempt to put all the jokes and the sneering aside and really face the issues that plague our country.

Through listening to the latter song, as well as "Conversations with My 13 Year Old Self", "Runaway", "The One That Got Away" and "Long Way to Happy", Pink's songwriting chops have obviously gotten stronger, and their muscles are flexed throughout the CD. One cannot help but stop and rewind certain phrases - her honesty leaves her vulnerable, but she has put herself and her opinions out there on the table, and it's up to the listener to take it or leave it. But it's not debatable that Pink has bared her soul on this record.

It's been a long time since the industry has really come face-to-face with such a poignant, fun, thought-provoking album. Classic? It's way too early to tell, but it definitely has the makeup to be one.
