I was a bit worried about how P!nk's usual angry songs, that I love with all my heart, would penetrate through the happiness and true love she's feeling at the moment. But the general annoyance with society crashes through with a bang!
All We Are We Are is amazing, with guitars and totalitarian lyrics even someone of Dave Grohl's stature might be proud of.
Blow Me (One Last Kiss) is the first single from the album and so so catchy, with P!nk preaching how she's 'had a shit day' with her partner.
Try, her next single, is quite disappointingly normal to begin with, but with more and more listens becomes increasingly addictive and you cannot help but sing along despite the lyrics 'and where there is fire someone's bound to get burned'.
Just Give Me A Reason is again a brilliantly catchy song with Nate Ruess from Fun. Both of the American's voices intertwine beautifully, with P!nk's somewhat masculine, wraspy vocals mixing with Nate's ultra-American tweets of lyrics.
True Love is one of my favourites on the album, with an appearance from Lily Rose Cooper (once Lily Allen). It is a sweet, yet honest, love ballad that really brings P!nk's happiness to the forefront, with the beautiful lyric ' you're an asshole but I love you'.
How Come You're Not Here is also another good one that gets you singing along in no time, not one of the stand out tracks though, in my opinion.
Slut Like You really seeps the usual P!nk anger and delightful arrogance, it mimics the themes and mindblowing guitar of So What, with a catchy chorus that is pure brilliance.
The Truth About Love is a grower, again routing from P!nk's bitterness about love saying 'the truth about love is it's all a lie'.
Beam Me Up is an acoustic effort, which at first doesn't make any impact on the ears at all. However, as more listens are given to the track it really does grow and the lyrics make an impact on you as you truly listen to them.
Walk Of Shame is amazing and will stay in your head until you listen to it again.
Here Comes The Weekend is another grower. It seems to re-route P!nk's hip-hop/r'n'b routes from her first album, but with a rocky twist. Eminem's inclusion is genius as (like on his track Won't Back Down) P!nk's rough vocals mixed with his brutal rapping style comes out as a magnificent track after afew listens.
Where Did The Beat Go is another good song. Again, not a stand out track until you give it's worth and listen to it a few times, but it really does grow on you.
The Great Escape is a disappointing song. Being used to wonderful acoustic efforts like Dear Mr. President, Crystal Ball, Glitter In The Air, Waiting For Love and I Don't Believe You this piano laden track really doesn't even get close to any of them, sounding more like it should come from the mouth of Mariah Carey or Selena Gomez.
Overall though, this album really is addictive and brilliant. If you bought the 2CD version you're in for a treat with the second CD, especially with Good Old Days. Well done baby P!nk, I love you!
