Hey there people. This blog is another review. This is a review about an album I have been waiting for for a while now.
As you can see from my myspace layout I am a huge P!nk fan. I have all her albums and I love them. P!nk to me is a artist that is not afraid to speak her mind. Perfect example is one of my favorite songs from her "Dear Mr. President".
P!nk's music I will describe as in your face but also playful and fun at the same time. Example "U and ur hand" was a fun song. P!nk is set to release her new album "Funhouse" next week Tuesday October 28th. This album has been a long time coming.
Her last album "I'm not dead" was a great album spawned some great singles like "Stupid girls", "Who knew", "U and ur hand", "Leave me alone I'm lonely" and "Dear Mr. President". So what will P!nk do in her new album to keep her hardcore fans and gain some new ones?
P!nk's first single off her new album is entitled "So what". This song was a punch at her ex husband. What made it cool was that it was a rock song with fun in it. It wasnt meant to be something serious. The song went to number 1 on the billboard chart and Itunes. Making it P!nk's first solo song to go to number 1 on the billboard chart. So what else is in store for P!nk and her fans?
Right now MTV is letting you hear the album before it releases next Tuesday. I took the chance to hear it and I will tell you that P!nk fans will be surprised and amazed by this album.
The feel of "Funhouse" is fun as usual but it also takes a route her other albums never have. This album is not as hard as the others. Pop/rock is what people are calling it. Her breakup from Carey Hart was hard and her fans will be able to tell by some of the songs.
"Funhouse" is a fun song where she talks about a house that doesnt feel the same. "This use to be our funhouse/ but now its full of evil clowns/. The words sound real and it is but it has a fun beat to it so the feel isnt so dark.
"Bad Influence" she talks about how fun it is to be a bad influence making people do things. It is classic P!nk and it is so much fun.
"Crystal ball" this is my favorite song on the album. I always like when she sings with just a guitar. None of that extra computer work here. Her voice is so raw and I love it. I can feel the pain in her voice. The songs talks about how you dont know what the fuuture holds and liking it that way. Cracks in the crystal/the cracks in the crystal ball/. Is a part of the song. Beautiful.
"Mean" is a song that shocked me HARD. The feel of this song is very much country song. To my shock the song works for her. Her voice is mellow and calm. It is real. Talking about how you become mean in a relationship. WONDERFUL SONG.
"It's all your fault" reminds me of "Who knew" off her last album. The beat is mellow and calm until it gets to the chorus where it picks up in speed and is harder. She talks about how its the guys fault cause he called her beautiful and now she feels something for him but he aint there anymore.
"I dont believe you" hits hard. Her voice is so soft here and beautiful. It isnt hard at all just sweet and innocent. She doesnt beleive him when he tells her he dont love her or wants to see her. They love each other and she cant believe he would feel any different.
"Glitter in the air" is another one of my favorites. This song is so beautiful. Its about being happy and doing things that make you happy.
Have you ever fed a lover with just your haNds?/Close your eyes And trust it, just trust it /Have you ever Thrown a fist full of glitter in the air?/Have you ever looked fear in the face And said I just don't care/ I love that part of the song. There isnt a whole bunch of instruments in this song. Its simple and beautiful and a perfect end to the album.
There are other great songs on this album. This album to me is fun and full of emotions. It is something I never heard from P!nk but it so works for her. Her voice is raw and real on this album and I love it. So next Tuesday October 28th make sure to pick up "Funhouse" and take the journey with her.
I give this album 5 out of 5 stars cause every song on here got 5 stars from me...LOVE IT P!NK
