The contrivance level is high on this debut by an R&B singer named for her out-of-a-bottle hair colour. La Face Records' latest female discovery is positioned midway between mainstream hip-hop soul and poor imitations of Kelis-style anger. Producer-writer She'kspere brings out his trademark machine beats for "There You Go", a pale copy of Kelis' "You Oughta Know". Still, that single's more artful than "Split Personality", which clumsily attempts to acknowledge three-dimensional human reality but really sounds like a fit of whining until Pink unleashes the inevitable melisma over the song's coda. Elsewhere, she makes nice on standard-issue ballads ("Stop Falling") and lite-reggae proclamations of love ("Private Show"). "I just wanna make you feel things", Pink sings at one point. Unfortunately, the emotion the cynical track Can't Take Me Home inspires most is annoyance. --Rickey Wright

1.Split Personality: This is a great R&B song with a hit of pop. I just love the great bluesy tone she has to her voice. This is a great song to dance to.....so let's all hit the dance floor....now ...TAG! Ha! Ha!
2.Most Girls: I just loved this song when it originally hit the airwaves. The beats in it are cool & keep the song flowing. Love the lyrics.....so true and we know she sure isn't like most girls...thankfully! Another track thats cool to dance to...loads of rhythm.
3.There You Go: I remember when this song first came out & they played it on MTV with the video...that video was so great! Loved the ending to it! That was hilarious! This is another great pop/R&B track. Great vocalists accompany her on this song; sounds great! Love how she lyrically talks about the "game"! She just exudes that "don't bull me" persona! Yeah!
4.You Make Me Sick: I love her talking in the intro on this song...so true...we have to stick together! Great song again to dance to...the beats are wicked awesome! Keeps the song progressing from start to finish!
5.Let Me Let You Know: This is a softer side of P!nks character here. Great R&B love song....or I should say a "goodbye" love song! This one is a nice slow song to dance to with your honey!
6.Private Show: Great funky pop tune...great collaboration with the male singer as background.Read more ›
I've heard recently that Pink was upset with this album because she felt that this wasn't really her and that she was giving in to the powers-that-be back when teen pop was huge. To me, this CD stood out from all of the Britneys, Christinas, and Jessicas out there. This CD dealt with things that went beyond having a crush and thinking you're in love at a young age. I have to give props to Pink for her ability to write songs that actually apply to life and not just what happens to be trendy at the moment.

This is one CD you'll want to own! Pink is a refreshing addition to the music industry and I can't wait to see what she comes up with next!
When I first listened to this album, I thought it was great. Then I listened to her second album and I couldn't get into it at first because, well, if it ain't broke, don't fix it. But then I listened to both albums again, and I realized that the second album was more accessible and entertaining.
There are SOME interesting songs on here, though. "Most Girls" talks about her looking for a man who will give her real love instead of just marrying into money, for example. "You Make Me Sick" is also interesting as it talks about not being able to let go of an unworthy man; a topic that wasn't as played-out back in '99 as it is now. But the rest of this album is sort of weird.
It's not that Pink isn't talented, but it seems like except for the aforementioned songs, this album had tracks that were basically style over substance. It seems like her songs have attitude and not much else, especially songs like the title track, "Hell With Ya", and even "There You Go". "There You Go" was great for a first single (it did go gold, after all), but a lot of the other songs on the album are like that. "Hiccup" sounds like it was thrown together at the last minute, and the mellow "Stop Falling" really doesn't belong on here.
This album isn't bad by any means. Still, I'm glad that Pink seems to have found her place with her second album.
1. Split Personality: I will never EVER get tired of this song. It has heart, it has rythym, it's catchy, and it is HOT! - 10
2. Hell Wit Ya: This is my fave song on the album. Pink shows you who's in control with the fast beat and hard lyrics. - 10
3. Most Girls: This song rocks also, as I'm sure you all know. Pink is NOT most girls. So it was overplayed, who cares. - 9.5
4. There You Go: The first single off this album and the second I heard it I knew it rocked my world. Not exactly your classic-style break-up (love the motorcycle though) - 10
5. You Make Me Sick: Another hit single from a hit album. Pink's a little daring with her lyrics as well - 9.5
6. Let Me Let You Know: This is least inspiring on the album. It's slower, and wasn't really pulled off to Pink's advantage if you ask me - 7
7. Love Is Such A Crazy Thing: Another slow one, a little disappointing as well but I guess it could catch on - 7.5
8. Private Show: The story of guys put into song form, and I have zero complaints. Nice groove - 9
9. Can't Take Me Home: The title track, and rightfully so. It displays Pink's will to express yourself in this in-your-face beater song.Read more ›

I don't know why I bought this CD, but I did. What a terrible decision. This is probably the worst CD i've ever heard. There's only like 2 good songs on here; the rest is garbage. Read morePublished on Jan. 26 2004 by Snack Patrol

I give this album four stars even though I thought I'd be getting an album full of Pink anger and growling vocals, but instead I bought the Toni Braxton version of Pink. Read morePublished on Jan. 5 2004 by BamaGirl70

Her punk schtick is just a facade to make up for her incredible lack of talent. Stink is fast on her way to has-been status.Published on Oct. 23 2003 by Brandon L. Harlow
I bought her album Misundaztood and was so upbeat about getting this album to go with it. What a disappointment! Read morePublished on Oct. 16 2003
Pink's debut album should be consider a missed step in her music career, "Missundeztood" is way superior to this!. Read morePublished on Oct. 4 2003 by S. Quinto
