crikey...wot can I say. I got my tix for the show in Belfast next February and all I can say is off the back of this cd, it will rok even more than her missundastood show in Dublin November 2002. This cd ups the rock ante on P!nk's last offering and is done so with some guts and balls.....not one to be trifled with P!nk shows she's here to stay in a gutsy opus which runs the gamut of different musical styles in a way that only Madge or Xtina can dream about. Trouble is a riotous opener for Ms Moore and really sets high expectations - a gritty rock song with an xplosive chorus and cacaphonic creascendo. Well impressive. First 5 trax really are awesome. Giod Is A DJ is one of those thunderous stadium type anthems which ring in your head and really showcase the husky force of P!nk's vocals. Last To Know an angry repudiation of a guy who leads her on and Tonight's The Night a funked up reggae type pop song which just commands you to have fun. Peaches duet Oh My God is sensuous and hanuting while maintaining an indie-punk typ edge. Quite revelatory. We then move into more 'album-track' type songs all of whiuch are very good, but it's the tail end of the cd which fires up again starting with Humble Neighbourhood which has definite strains of Pink Floyd's Hole IN The Wall.....really accessible and brilliant. The Charlie's Angels song Feel Good Time fares much better on album than as a stand-alone single...the final song, Love Song is P!nk at her most tender and has to be a single. Xposed and raw, a true gem in this album's crown. There's a hidden track called Hooker which is a hoot - brilliant but naughtee lyrix ahoy. But hey, this is P!nk. To summarise this album is hard as each track has its own identity (rare in today's age) and all demosntrate P!nk's creative genius as an artist and musical performer. Both accessible and challenging, this cd while acquire many admirers and listeners. A natural progression onwards from M!ssundastood, you get the feeling P!nk's audience will 'get' this cd. Roll on February!

P!nk's third disc finds pop's randiest siren expanding on the soundscapes she created after veering in a completely different direction with 2001's highly overrated MISSUNDAZTOOD. Being in the minority of not being a real fan of that album, my expectations for TRY THIS were not particularly high, despite the quality of criminally underrated first single "Trouble". Ultimately, expectations were pretty much met--despite some bright spots, TRY THIS is not a particularly great listen. Primary collaborator Tim Armstrong produced the majority of the disc, which wouldn't be so bad if so many of his tracks didn't sound so similar--besides "Trouble", the only other Armstrong-helmed tracks that distinguish themselves are "Tonight's The Night" and the excellent "Walk Away". Linda Perry also turns up for three tracks, though none are as immediate as previous hit "Get The Party Started"(though she does contribute a rare P!nk slow jam winner in the Prince-inspired "Catch Me While I'm Sleeping"). The only other track worth mentioning is the rock/dance hybrid "God Is A DJ", which is the catchiest track on the album and, maybe tellingly, helmed by neither Armstrong nor Perry. In the end, there's no denying P!nk's vocal abilities(at their peak here), and hardcore P!nk fans will devour this, but those who loved the hooks of "Get The Party Started" or even early hits like "Most Girls" may not be so forgiving.

I loved this album on the release date...then I got off the caffeine high and over the initial hype!! We've all heard "Trouble", which I REALLY liked in the beginning but now it's starting to get old. "Oh My God" is Pink's sex song according to the bonus DVD. It's good, but it would be a total snoozefest if it weren't for Peaches' dirty rap! "Tonight's the Night" is sort of a mediocre mellow version of "Get The Party Started". You just have to be in the right mood for this one. "Walk Away" is reminescent of Avril Lavigne or Michelle Branch's "The Spirit Room". It sounds like it belongs on the next major teen movie. Everyone's heard "God Is A DJ"-much better than her first single!! "The Last To Know" is an excellent in-your-face uptempo. "Waiting For Love"-a classic!! It's a take on classic rock, but with Pink's own original touch to it!! "Love Song" is a beautiful, personal ballad about Pink finally finding "the one"! Now, "Catch Me While I'm Sleeping" is just a terrible song! It's too repetitive with no musical or vocal variety. Sounds like a reject from "Can't Take Me Home". The remainder of the tracks are mediocre rock songs. They make Pink look like she's trying a bit too hard to emulate classic rock music! Perhaps, Pink should take her own advice and not "Try Too Hard". Don't get me wrong, I do appreciate a good rock song. But not when it sounds like everything else I've heard before!! For example, the chanting of "we don't want to go home", in "Humble Neighborhoods", reminds me of the classic rock song with the chant "we don't need no education". I'm not sure of that song's title, but everyone should recognize it immediately!! Overall, a very mediocre album. "Try This" cannot even compare to the more emotional and personal feel of "Missundaztood"! Makes me wonder if Pink is starting to lose her crowning touch.
