NME review Pink's debut album
and get it mostly right, though it deserves way more than a 6. My only quibble is with the suggestion that Pink suffers from sameyness and "diva disease". Don't get me wrong, she does, but the implication that female r'n'b artists have to be wacky - like Kelis, Macy or Missy - to warrant attention seems to miss the point. While I love the oddball charisma that Kelis and Missy bring to their respective shows, the best thing about Pink's album (well, one of the best things) is that she knows that her producers are her major asset. She fits her songs around their grooves, allowing the sonic innovation of this music - surely the main reason why we're listening? - to shine through all the more clearly.
