Picks and Pans Review: M!ssundaztood
Who knew that beneath the fuchsia mop lurked the soul of a sensitive singer-songwriter? Pink, who went double-platinum with last year's sassy R&B-pop debut, Can't Take Me Home, now aims to separate herself from the brash attitude of the "Lady Marmalade" pack (Christina Aguilera, Lil' Kim, et al) by blending introspective lyrics that are refreshingly honest with music that veers more to pop-rock than R&B. For the most part, Pink (real name: Alecia Moore) succeeds. Her idol Linda Perry, former front woman of 4 Non Blondes, helped write and produce, bringing a Lilith Fair feel to cuts like the punky feminist anthem "Respect," which should earn Pink just that.
