Summary
Try This proves that Pink can deliver an unpredictable giant leap forward, assisted by unlikely collaborators, that winds up being among the best pop music of its given year. While Linda Perry collaborates on three tracks, Pink has picked Tim Armstrong as her choice for main co-writer/producer for Try This. Armstrong co-writes and produces eight of the 13 songs here, and while it is true that he helps steer Pink into harder-rocking territory, the end result is not quite as simple as Try This being a straight-up rock & roll album. Hard rock is used as the foundation for the record instead, and then it stretches out into several different styles and sounds. There is a handful of dance-oriented tracks, a quiet ballad, but, this is pop music that knows no boundaries, borrowing ideas from punk, soul, ska, new wave, and electronica to create an exhilarating listen that crackles with energy and inventiveness. This music has reference points, some intentional and some not, but its presentation is original and exceptionally well-written. Pink is not as consciously confessional this time around, which makes for a nice fit for Armstrong's strong sense of songcraft and pop hooks, resulting in music that is immediately grabbing yet so sturdily crafted it only seems stronger, even catchier, with repeated listens. While Pink's peers take incremental, cautious artistic steps forward, she is slyly fearless, choosing the right collaborators that help her create pop music that has both style and substance to spare. With Try This, Pink has firmly established a voice of her own. -- Editorial Review provided by Stephen Thomas Erlewine for All Music Guide, taken and adapted from Barnes And Noble website
