Mikey Dread ~ Try This
While detractors may grouse that Pink's third album doesn't have a dance floor anthem on it like the incendiary "Get The Party Started" from 2001's Missundaztood, some prefer their Pink straight up and damn the paper drink umbrellas and crepe paper. She's at her very best raiding her own troubled autobiography for inspiration, spitting out vituperrious vocal epitaphs like seeds from a ripe watermelon instead of the angst-ridden confessional romp she took through Missundaztood. Maybe she's worked all that out on a psychiatrist's couch, because this time out her anger is much more arch and entertaining; likely due to her pairing with Rancid's Tim Armstrong, who co-wrote and produced most of the disc and certainly knows the value of turning rage into a well-crafted musical punch line. As unlikely as the collaboration looked on paper, it works perfectly because the Pennsylvania native has always brandished a punk sneer beneath the corsets, gaudy hair color, and naughty girl demeanor. Armstrong and his Rancid cohorts (Lars Frederiksen and Matt Freeman) inject feral rock action into the disc with their truncated guitar sounds and trash can drumming and provide a perfect foil for Pink's foul-mouth rants and backstage laments like "Last To Know." But Pink hasn't shaved her spiky coiffure into a Mohawk. She still smolders on a soulful ballad like "Catch Me While I'm Sleeping" or trades vitriol with raps' redoubtable sex kitten, Peaches. --Jaan Uhelszki

The woman is amazing!!! As She hangs by silks, & harnessed above everyone in the arena, half dressed, The beauty un leashed for all to gawk in awe, & true respect, for the true artist she faultlessly tries to hide away, humble, yet colorful & bright this woman closes the curtain as the glitter continues to fall like shimmering rain...
1. Trouble- This is a great song- maybe not the best choice for first single, but a great kick-off for the album. The bridge sounds sort of 60's though- it's good but doesn't seem to fit the beat of the rest of the song. The video is the best video I've seen in a long time. "Trouble" is a stiff at radio, but first singles aren't always an indication of how the album will do. For example, Christina Aguilera's "Stripped" is being reported as one of the top five best selling albums of 2003, but the catchy first single "Dirrty" was a huge flop. Grade- A.
2. God Is A DJ- This is a standout track. It's the second single, though it should have been the first. Off the wall chorus, and funny lines such as "I've been the girl- middle finger in the air" and "God wants you to get on the floor and shake that a**" lol. Grade- A+.
3. Last to Know- Very good, though is sort of a song that you would expect from Pink- very ordinary. The chorus gets stuck in my head all the time. This might be the third single but I hope it isn't. Grade- A- because it's still great.
4. Tonight's the Night- the sequal to "Get the Party Started" but a heck of a lot better. The line "Gotta get the h*** outa Hollywood cause every day here's halloween" is so true. Wonderful music. Grade- A.
5. Oh My God ft. Peaches- Oh my god I love this song!! (No joke intended). Peaches's rap is so hot. When I heard that Peaches was on the song, I was like "Whoa this is gonna be X- rated", but it's actually not too raunchy. Grade- A+.
6. Catch Me While I'm Sleeping- This is a beautiful ballad. The only thing I dislike about it is that despite its 5:03 running time, the verses end around the 3 minute mark and we get a 2 minute repitition of the chorus. Grade- B+.
7. Wating For Love- Oh God, Pink's vocals are amazing! So sweet and not scratchy at all (not that I don't love her "smoker" voice) on the verses and b-sides, and then so powerful on the chorus... Wow. A standout track. Grade- A.
8. Save My Life- Everyone seems to love this song, and I much as I like the lyrics and the message, the music is...average, for lack of a better word. Poorest track on the disc. Grade- B.
9. Try Too Hard- This is an amazing song with a message that will shut that little "female dog" with a tie (er...Avril Lavigne) up. I love the chorus, and it's kind of cool how Pink altered the chorus at the end so the critics can't acuse her of "calling other artists but not herself fake". Grade- A.
10. Humble Neighborhoods- The rap verses and the "weeeeeee don't wanna go home" is cool, but something about the chorus greatly disturbs me. Other than that cool song. Grade- A-.
11. Walk Away- An awesome song that might be a single for it is very radio friendly. It's sort of a poppish rock song, but that's ok. I love the end. Grade- A.
12. Unwind- Pink really likes Janis Joplin, and you can tell. It has a really funny line- "My life is like a fairy tale that nobody believes in". The chorus is great. It's sad that the woman this song is about died at 27 though. Grade- A.
13. Love Song- THE BEST SONG ON THE CD. Oh my god I love it!!! It's so sweet and subtle. The lyrics and the melody are outstanding. It's shortness is part of its charm. The perfect album closer. Grade- A++++++!
In conclusion, "Try This" is a fantastic album that I would recomend to anyone searching for an amazing CD by a talented young lady.
s. I bought it because of the rave reviews but have a difference of opinion.
