Pink has quietly (and loudly) become one of the best pop songwriters and performers recording today. She is adept at both pulsating anthems like today’s track and emotional balladry (such as her duet with fun.’s Nate Ruess that is currently all over the place).
I haven’t gotten around to reviewing or ranking Pink’s latest album, The Truth About Love, but when I do it will rank right up there with the best records I heard this year.
I’m relatively new to Pink — 2008’s Funhouse was the first of her albums I heard, and the only one before picking up The Truth About Love. Both of these records reveal a confident, talented, brazen woman with a powerhouse voice and great songwriting chops.
