Product Description

Amazon.ca

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

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Debut!!! May 13 2003
Format:Audio CD
"Can't Take Me Home" is a great debut from a very talented artist. Not only can Pink sing well, but she also has a knack for conveying so many of the emotions women around her age feel. This isn't a particularly deep album (much like Pink's sophomore effort "Mizudastood"), but the songs are good and are very entertaining. So many times when I first listened to this CD I thought, "Did she really just say that?" Pink really lets it all go and doesn't try to hold back with these tracks.
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.
Stand-out tracks:
You Make Me Sick
Let Me Let You Know
Love is Such a Crazy Thing
Can't Take Me Home
Stop Falling
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!

3.0 out of 5 stars (3-1/2 stars) It's good, but... Jan. 27 2003
Format:Audio CD
I fell asleep with my television on one night and I woke up hearing "There You Go". I wasn't looking at the TV so I assumed it was a black woman singing. I turned around and...well, you know the rest.
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pink dances to her own vibe. Aug. 25 2002
Format:Audio CD
I bought this CD when it first came out two years ago and I still absolutely love it. For me, it was a fresh, new style and a change from all the other female artists on the scene. Here was a girl (sorry...woman) who's strong and not afraid to stand up for herself, and OH MY GOD she has pink hair. But this CD is full of hits that weren't recognized by the public and an honesty unparallelled by anyone - and all this on a debut album!!! The songs are catchy and her voice is different, but different sometimes just means unique, which makes her songs all the more beautiful. Here's a quick review of the CD:
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Just Like Most Girls July 18 2002
By k. lane
Format:Audio CD
P!nk made her debut as a rather dime a dozen man-hating R&B vixen. The only thing that really set her apart being the skin tone and the hair color. Three good, but common place singles were released - "There You Go", "Most Girls", and "You Make Me Sick" - all with the basic theme of women not needing men. The album uses plenty of urban and pop cliche, yet still manages to rise above it, do to the personality of the singer, and the better than average sings using the same old themes. The whole album is good, but obviously made to be commercial. Good quality tunes, but their isn't any soul put into them. The only song I feel any personality in is the confused "Split Personality". It's not the real P!nk on this record, and after a chart topping stint as a Lady Marmalade girl, she let her true colors show with the dynamic "M!ssundaztood". Unlike this release, you can feel her personality being reflected in the songs. Both albums are great, and kinda leave P!nk's music career with a sort of split personality. Solid debut effort.

Pink is so talented and I regard her as an Urban artist because she can change genres easily switching from R&B, Pop or even Rock. 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 more

1.0 out of 5 stars She's not talented
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.
