Review: Pink's The Truth About Love

Wed 26 Sep 2012 In: Music View at Wayback View at NDHA

The beauty of Pink, my girlfriend tells me, is that aside from her uber-hotness, she also puts out albums which manage to sound very different from each other. The aforementioned girlfriend, Demelza Kaan, is among the legions of lesbian Pink devotees and she’s told me why she loves her new album The Truth About Love so much: Listening to The Truth About Love is almost like stepping back into the 90s. It has that classic 90s pop feel to it, which given it’s now 2012, could almost be classed as retro I guess. Pink brings her signature mix of hilariously smart-ass lyrics, but there are plenty of serious undertones too. In fact the album makes you feel like your first love has broken your heart, but it’s somehow still pounding to a bouncy pop beat. The Truth About Love will be another step in diehard fans’ 11 year journey with Pink, another addition to their life soundtrack. If they are anything like me, her music will have been there throughout all their ups and downs. There has never been a mood that I am in that I couldn't find a Pink song to fit, weather it would pick me up, help me cry or let me dance around the house like a crazy freak, just because that's how I felt. The Truth About Love is about relationships. Every song makes you remember all of your loves; past and present good and bad. The things done to you and the things you wish you had done. It’s too hard to pick one favourite track, but those that stand out the most include Just Give Me a Reason featuring the distinctive vocals of Nate Ruess from band of the minute FUN. It has a really catchy tune and a good continuous beat: and who hasn't woken up from having a bad dream about a loved one and feeling like what happened in the dream was real and really happening!? True Love is a throwback to my heavier 90s music days with the signature bass chord reminiscent of Korn. Slut Like You, as you can probably guess from the name, has mad-funny lyrics that make you wish you could have been like that to the ex that was cheating on you for all that time. Walk of Shame goes through the classic thought process after a one night stand, and once again has a really catchy tune and a good composition of music backing it Good Old Days just makes me think of my younger years and also makes me want to be sitting on the deck in the sun drinking beer. So bring on summer – the soundtrack’s already here! The lowdown on The Truth About Love … Best tracks: Just Give Me a Reason, True Love, Slut Like You, Walk of Shame, Good Old Days. Best to listen to when in the mood for: mentally sticking it to your ex because of how happy you are now. Thanks to Demelza Kaan for sharing her impressions!
