- "Fun"house Indeed
P!nk does not disappoint with her fifth album "Funhouse".
So What - first single, her first #1
Sober - second single, her best song ever by far
Please Don't Leave Me - not the best, but it grows on you
Funhouse - catchy, won't play on radio, well maybe
Bad Influence - fourth single in Australia / UK / not in the u.s.
Mean - one of my favorites (gets 5 stars for best song)
One Foot Wrong - this and Mean have very classic rock feel to them
4 out 5 just because not every song is fantastic...more info
- Great from Beginning to End.
This cd is a keeper! How many times have I bought a CD and only liked one or two songs on it. This cd is definitely not in that category. It's awesome from 1 to 12. A must buy!...more info
- Marital angst and some fun too boot !
Ok, first of all this entire cd is dedicated to her working out her pain, sorrow, anger and fear of her ending marriage. So with that in mind, I did find it a bit hard to listen to the whole cd without taking a break. Now if you find yourself mad or in crappy traffic, then heck this is just the cd to listen to and propel you angrily through traffic. Its fun at times and a bit much at times but overall a good mix of musical styles and a good time once you get going. If you enjoyed her last cd, then I dont think youll be disappointed here. If you didnt know she was getting divorced before you listen, you sure will after!...more info
- Great Album
Love it. P!nk at her finest. Lots of catchy tunes and heartfelt lyrics....more info
- Its a FUNHOUSE!
Love it, bought it and enjoying it! my favs :
I Don't Believe You
Please Don't Leave Me

- Pink's Funhouse Official Review
Heyy! It's me again. I haven't reviewed all day. This is my first time reviewing a P!nk album, so here it is.
So What- This is a catchy song. It always gets stuck in my head. Half of the kids in my class hum it while they work. It's danceable if your a frikin' rocker!!! 10/10
Sober- My friend Amanda loves this one. Me, Connor, Chrissy, and her were talking about P!nk. Everybody was voting for "So What" and then she's like "I vote for Sober.". So do I! 10/10
I Don't Believe You- Probably my second favorite on the album. In concerts, Pink ALWAYS and I mean ALWAYS forgets the words to this song. Not a single, but it deserves to be. 10/10
One Foot Wrong- This song is so-so because I can't tell the beat, it has the weirdest time signature. I don't like it so much. 4/10
Please Don't Leave Me- Okay, the first time I heard this song, I hated it and wondered why it was a single. But the more you listen to it, the more you grow on it, so, don't listen to this once and hate it, keep listening and then you'll be playing this one over and over. 7/10
Bad Influence- This is my third favorite. It's about her boozing it up! Yeah, baby, yeahhhh!!! I was playing this REALLY loud and I looked in the other room where one of my family members were, and even they were rocking. 10/10
Funhouse- No wonder this CD was named after this song!? It totally rocks!!! Not my favorite, but really close! It's like my 2.5th. The only bad part is, near the very end she says "...burn this f***** down!". 10/10
Crystal Ball- The thing that I like about this song is that it's not mixed, it was recorded in one take, and is aue-natural. 8/10
Mean- I don't like this one. It says the f word. Worse than "One Foot Wrong"! 2/10
It's All Your Fault- Rocking. The past 2 songs are really slow and it's a shocker when this comes on and wakes you up, maybe gets you in a car crash. 6/10
Ave Mary A- I like this one. That's all I can say. 8/10
Glitter In The Air- THIS IS MY FAVORITE ONE!!!! It's a really cool ballad. Nic voice, nice music. I do't know why it's not the first single off the album. This song to me, is the highlight of the album. Rock on P!nk! 12/10
Out of all 10/10...more info
- 14 year old loves it
I gave this to my 14 year old niece for Christmas. She loves it....more info
- Not what I expected from my girl Pink
I was so looking forward to getting this CD based on "So What" and "Sober". I'm recently divorced and thought that this would be my anthem CD - you know to get me pscyhed to go out on the town, as a new single. I was disappointed however that besides "So What" and "Bad Influence" most of the song are sad , I wish I had my husband back crap. Not really what I was expecting, and my skip button on my dash is going to probably break from overuse. All in all I should have just downloaded the three songs that I liked and saved the $12. Better luck next time Pink....more info
- Not as Good as "I'm Not Dead" But Still Strong - 3 ? Stars
Propelled by the single of her career, "So What", FUNHOUSE was destined to complete the resurgence of one of pop/rock's savviest starlets, P!nk. For years P!nk struggled to keep up with the other pop artists such as Jessica Simpson, Christina Aguilera, and Britney Spears. Now, the tables seemed to have turned. When I'M NOT DEAD began as yet another brilliant, yet underrated Pink album, it seems like everyone but fans and objective critics had forgotten about Pink. However even after a strong single like "Stupid Girls" failed to give Pink the momentum necessary for a gold/platinum album, one of the lesser, yet catchier tracks of I'M NOT DEAD resurrected Pink from music industry death ("U + Ur Hand"). After a lengthy stay on the album chart and a platinum I'M NOT DEAD as a result, FUNHOUSE, the less enjoyable album of the two builds upon the commercial and critical success of I'M NOT DEAD.
The album opens with valedictory #1 hit "So What", which just may be the smartest move of FUNHOUSE. Here Pink essentially copies the best qualities of "Stupid Girls" and "U + Ur Hand" and makes one sick, inescapable pop song. It's commercial yet a gem at the same time which makes for that sometimes once-in-a-lifetime song. It give Pink another Grammy-nominated performance under her belt, even if the competition is incredibly stiff (Adele's "Chasing Pavements", Leona Lewis's "Bleeding Love"...)
Second track, also second single will be more a gem for those who are sick of "So What". "Sober" is equally as good as "So What", if in a different sort of way. It rejects the overt "poppy" leanings of its predecessor in favor of a darker, more rock-infused sound. The production is darker and Pink's growl grows even more sour (in a good way of course). It is a personal favorite. "I Don't Believe You" is good too, though the weakest between "So What" and "Sober". It is a bit of a reliever after the manic, though great energy of both it's predecessors. On the flipside, it is a bit more boring and flat compared to either "So What" or "Sober". Again, it is solid and ultimately a strong listen with its acoustic guitar and strings. It leans more towards the adult contemporary vein as opposed to hard rock. But, I think any country artists would feel at home covering this 'songwriter's track'.
"One Foot Wrong" has a fine chord progression going in it's favor. Pink's voice during the first portion of the first verse is slightly out of tune (purposefully I believe), but it adds a certain endearing quality to this number. Overall Pink sounds as good as ever and the production has enough rock, pop, and urban to have great crossover potential. Don't get me rock, Pink is STILL a rock star - but "One Foot Wrong" is a catchy pop tune, raspy vocals or not. And the synthesizer line and synthesized brass make it an urban producer's masterpiece.
"Please Don't Leave Me" has a lighter pop/rock feel, something that Pink is truly a pro at. It lays well as a track and keeps up the overall strong momentum of FUNHOUSE. "Bad Influence" continues to accentuate Pink's strengths, even if it doesn't capitalize perfectly on the strengths of monster track "So What". Pink sounds on fire and "Bad Influence" should please rockers as well as pop-tarts everywhere.
"Funhouse" doesn't fall anywhere near title track symptom in which the title track "sucks" to be blunt, but it also isn't necessarily the best of FUNHOUSE. With that said, "Funhouse" is enjoyable, easy to listen to, and would make a good single. It is restrained compared to Pink's most overt performances (vocally), but it suits her and radio well. It is pretty addictive; since I heard it on The Early Show I've been obsessed with it, even though both singles are much better. But, of course Pink on the Early Show had to censor the part where she's "gonna burn this f**ker down"... Oh well.
"Crystal Ball" is tame compared to the rowdiest numbers, though Pink sounds great. In the songwriting sense, "Crystal Ball" is among the valedictory songwriting performances of FUNHOUSE. In the sense of sheer enjoyment, it ranks lower. "Mean" makes up for any losses garnered after "Crystal Ball" making for another engaging performance. The production is great and the progression is too! Great hook, convincing vocal performance, fine songwriting. Period. "It's All Your Fault" feels second rate to the other high energy numbers, though it is still average at the least. "Ave Mary A" features more great production work, as well as more vulgarity from Alecia Moore (aka Pink). Again, second rate compared to the best, but average. Concluding track "Glitter In The Air" lightens up after Pink pushes it to the limit on both "It's All Your Fault" and "Ave Mary A". It is another singer-songwriter track and may not appeal as much as the high energy numbers. The songwriting is strong here and with that being Pink's intention, it works well. Modest maybe, but a nice way to close and overall good album.
Essentially, FUNHOUSE does pale a bit in comparison to I'M NOT DEAD, but overall Pink is on her "A-game". A few misses and flaws never broke down a good album - at least that is how I look at it! Not perfect, but every bit worth $10 to purchase, right? 3 ? Stars, easily. ...more info
- PINKIE AND THE BRAIN

- Awesome deal
Looked all over for the explicit version and couldn't find it anywhere. Got an awesome deal from Amazon and will keep looking for more...more info
- Worthy Purchase
I love Pink and this album does not disappoint. Yes, you can call this her break-up album but she kept it fun. Going through a rough patch in your relationship or not, this is a great cd....more info
- "Funhouse"- P!nk's best album by far
have all P!nk's albums and "Funhouse" is definately the best of them (at least in my opinion). All the songs on the album are very good, which is something I didn't find with her other albums, like "I'm Not Dead" which started off excellently ("Who Knew", "Cuz I Can", "U + Ur Hand", "Leave Me Alone (I'm Lonely)", etc...) and then was let down by a lot of boring songs near the end. It might just be that I prefer P!nk's upbeat songs ("Who Knew" is an exception) but this isn't the case on this album, "I Don't Believe You" is probably my favourite or at least one of my favourites on this album and "Glitter In The Air" is great too, as are the upbeat tracks ("So What", "Boring" (how is this a bonus track?!- it should be a single), "It's All Your Fault", etc...) and "Sober", etc...Basically it's all great. I liked P!nk's previous albums but I liked most the songs and found there were quite a lot of boring/not as good songs so it let the albums down altogether and I'm really happy she's finally beaten that: "Funhouse". I recommend this to anyone from a hardcore P!nk fan to an average P!nk fan, you will not regret it!! and if you can, get the UK or Japanese edition of this album, they include the video for "So What" (enhanced CD) and more importantly: 2 excellent bonus tracks: "This Is How It Goes Down" (featuring Travis McCoy from Gym Class Heroes) and the popular must-have "Boring". But even without the excellent "Boring", "Funhouse" is a must-have album and easily P!nk's best to date, any P!nk fan from large to small that picks this up will not regret it...more info
- Pink "Funhouse" CD - clean version
I ordered this for my daughter for Xmas. I selected the clean version because my two grandsons are usually in the car with her. Very pleased with the service....more info
- Passed Expectations
I got this only knowing 2 songs. After listening to this album I have to be honest, all the songs are good and you will want to listen to them more than once. I was never a P!nk fan until this album. I would recommend it to anyone....more info
- Funhouse is correctly named
This is a great cd filled with the get up and dance music, you come to expect from Pink, if you are a Pink fan I recommend you get this to add to your collection......more info
- love Funhouse
I've never paid much attention to Pink before, so I can't make any comparison to previous albums, but this one is great. It's obviously about her problems with her personal life, but the songs are either fun or introspective, and all easy to listen to. Definitely a keeper....more info
- Awesome singing and a wide variety of genres represented . . .
This is a very strong album with a little something for everyone. Pink seems to be channeling three sounds: 1) Janis Joplin-esque blues/roots rock 2) 90's singer-songwriter and 3) pure pop. I didn't enjoy some of the down-temp singer songwriter stuff as much, but Pink sings so well that even those tracks were a pleasure to hear. ...more info
What can you say!? It's Pink! Pink rocks! Great self-esteem booster for young and teenage girls....more info
- P!nk always delivers
I have been a fan of Pink for a long time. It seems like she always sounds new and fresh, but not so different that you can't tell it's her. This album is awesome. My breakdown:
1. So What - Totally Pink. It is the first single that I'm sure most people are familiar with. In my opinion, it is by far not the best on the album (as often is the case with singles I think).
2. Sober - This song is so rock 'n roll Pink. It's very raw with emotion. Her voice is so rock star in the chorus. It's her talking about giving up alcohol and the effect it has on her life. Amazing. Serious, but definitely not boring.
3. I Don't Believe You - This song is also raw with emotion. It's about being in a relationship and the realization (and then subsequent denial) that the person you love doesn't want to be with you anymore. Another song that makes you feel something, but that is also fun to belt out in the car.
4. One Foot Wrong - I LOVE this song. I think that many people said they didn't when reviewing it, but it has awesome lyrics, a catchy beat, Pink's awesome rock star voice. What more can you ask for?
5. Please Don't Leave Me - A fun (beat), yet emotional song about the ups and downs of a relationship, the faults of one person in the relationship (not blame, but rather owning up to some of her own), and also a real vulnerability is shown.
6. Bad Influence - In the spirit of 'Cuz I Can from her previous album, I'm not dead. It's very fun, very in your face, and not caring what anyone else thinks. One of the many reasons we love Pink.
7. Funhouse - A fun song about tearing down the house because it's no longer fun (perhaps a metaphor referring to the home she built with someone she is no longer with). There is pain in the song, but it's funny at times as well (lyrically). And of course amazing Pink vocals.
8. Crystal Ball - Slow song. Really good lyrics. And of course love her voice. This song is mostly about her voice and the lyrics. The music in the background is simple, but really fits the song. It's really almost got a rock ballad type feel to it... Not pop at all.
9. Mean - This is so southern rock. It's about being in a relationship and realizing that you're taking each other for granted and basically just being mean now. Really good. Full of emotion.
10. It's All Your Fault - I love this song. The beat is different--don't really know how to describe it even. It has a catchy chorus, but I wouldn't say the rest of the song is very poppy. I love the third verse. It really hits you. You will just have to listen to it for that--I'm not giving anything away.
11. Ave Marie A - I feel like this song could be in a musical or something. It's very in your face with a good message about all the violence and just plain badness in the world. Really good.
12. Glitter In the Air - A very simple song. Beautiful lyrics. Beautiful voice.
All in all, a really good album. I would definitely recommend it and do to all my friends and family....more info
- She Just Keeps Getting Better Every Time!
Pink's latest release of Funhouse is probably her most real,intimate offering yet, with a healthy mix of angst, revenge, sadness and bittersweet regret. It's not hard to understand what influenced her lyrics for this collective work, dealing with the painful separation and ending of her 2 yr. marriage to Carey Hart. I can say with much celebration, however, that they are back together these days and working at making their relationship work. I for one am ecstatic and hope they can really make a go of it this time because they obviously really love eachother. Personal faves on this album, tho pretty hard to limit as the whole album is EXCELLENT, would be Crystal Ball, Glitter In The Air, I Don't Believe You, Sober, So What and Bad Influence.. Some releases have some b-sides which are equally good - Boring, This Is How It Goes Down, and many more. Keep rockin' Pink. We love you!...more info
- So confused!
I was so excited to see that Pink finally had a new album out and thoroughly enjoyed her previous work. I, like everyone else, has heard "So What" numerous times on the radio and figured that Pink was finally back to her old self. By listening to "So What" especially with it being the first song on the CD thought it was going to be all about her new life and "new attitude". I could not have been more wrong. While the other songs were nice, it was not at all what I expected and was more like a trip through her sadness and depression over ex. It was too much pity party and not enough rock or fun....more info
- Yes...I love Pink
This is a great CD from Pink. I bought this from Amazon and it was delivered without any problem. The CD and CD case had no demage. I won't say how great the songs are, I am sure you already know that. Right!...more info
- Excellent Album!
I bought this CD because I liked the songs that were on the radio. I have listened to the whole album a few times now, and really enjoy Pink's emotional depth! She can really combine deep, moving music with captivating, insightful lyrics....more info
- Just sharin'
This is one awesome CD. Such a variety of music. Some feel it is downbeat because of her situation as of late, but what sincere feeling she puts in every song on this CD. I don't think I ever noticed the beauty of her voice in previous releases. I think "Glitter In The Air" is probably my favorite, the keyboard and her voice are like one. The upbeat tracks get you moving. What a great CD!...more info
- Gotta Love Pink
As always Pink is in her game when she's not the happiest. Since her and her husband has called it quits she's back in her element. ...more info
- Awesome oncemore
Oncemore Alecia Moore has done it! Creating an album of this magnitude! Hats off. I thought Try this and I'm not dead were TOP albums, every song on this album makes it the next HUGE succes. No wonder all tickets to her concert here in Holland are sold out! Luckily I already saw her perform live twice already. This girl has a voice, power and spice that is unsurpassed lately by any other artist!
P!NK rocks! And don't forget the powerful ballads, awesome!
- Nice Clean Version!
I was glad to find the CLEAN version of this CD for my 7 year old daughter. I could not find it in stores....more info
- P!nk just continues to bring it!
Pink is one of my favorite artists. This album, again, has a wonderful variety of pop/rock tunes with a few funky tunes and some slower ballads. Her tone is just flawless. These are just a number of the songs that really caught my ear:
Please Don't Leave Me
I Don't Believe You (UNBELIEVABLY BEAUTIFUL!)
Glitter In The Air
Keep bringin' Pink! Great Album. 5 stars and worth the money!...more info
- Great Album
I am not originally a big pink fan, but this album is great. I like almost every song and can appreciate the writing and her singing. ...more info
- Smooth transaction
The right CD, wrapped and shipped promptly. Good music if you like Pink. What else can you ask for?...more info
- I love Pink!
Once again, Pink's lyrics speak the soundtrack of my life. At the moment, I am separated from my husband (Pink wrote these songs during her separation from Carey Hart), and all these song's reflect my emotions during this time. There is a nice mix of hearttugging songs, kick-a** songs, oh, I just loved the whole thing! ...more info
- She's a real Rock Star
There's nothing I can add that the 143 other reviewers before me haven't said. When Pink arrived on the music scene, most didn't know what to make of her. Where did she fit in? Her sound was always great, but was she hip hop, R&B, which genre was she supposed to go in?
Well, here we are years later, and Pink has proven that she doesn't belong in anybody's category; she's carved out a nice niche all her own. She's graduated from a gimmicky dance songstress, to a full blown Rock 'n Roll Goddess. This album is AWESOME!! There's not one bad song on this CD, and it stays on rotation in my car and at home. This woman was blessed with a set of pipes, and she knows how to use them. I love seeing talented people, define themselves, instead of letting others define who they are. I'm looking forward to her next album, I can't wait....more info
- Music lovers....MUST BUY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
WOW...i am a huge P!nk fan. By far, this is her best album yet. With every album she gets better and better. EVERY song is awesome. A must own!!!...more info
- the awesome album
this album was awesome my 1 year old daughter and i listen to it all the time she even sings some of the words and when she wants to hear it she mama pink it is so cute ..... THIS ALBUM WAS AWESOME...more info
Pink's voice is so powerful and soothing at the same time. This album ranks right up there with 'I'm Not Dead Yet'. I can almost feel her pain through her voice, yet am soothed by its vocal prowess. ...more info
- Great Breakup CD
Almost as good as her last CD "I'm Not Dead," but close. There are some really good songs and you can relate to how she feels about her recent breakup if you've been through one yourself...more info
- So what?! This album is a lot of fun
I have to admit I am not a Pink fan. My taste in music is anything but mainstream. I do like a few of her earlier songs from her first two albums but that is about it. I recently decided to check out her latest album FUNHOUSE after I heard a sample of the song "Please Don't Leave Me". Much to my surprise, I found myself enjoying FUNHOUSE quite a bit. Pink's brand of pop/rock is energetic and a lot of fun to listen to. There were a few duds on the album. I am not fond of most of the ballads. I didn't particularly care for the bluesy "One Foot Wrong". I didn't like the melodies. The one ballad that I really dug was "I Don't Believe You". Alecia Moore's raspy vocals really meshes well with the music and lyrics. My other favorite songs on the album are the uptempo tracks which I think is where Pink's strength lies. I especially love the song "Bad Influence" which captures Pink's spunky attitude perfectly. The pop hooks quickly got ingrained in my head. The same can be said about "Please Don't Leave Me". While FUNHOUSE may not be perfect, I still found the album immensely satisfying to listen to for the most part. ...more info
