THE TRUTH ABOUT LOVE
Pink
(Sony)

A sixth dose of studio sass and hacked off hooks as nu-mom Alecia Beth Moore shows she's not going all coochie-coo just because she's had 18 months of nappy changes and sleepless nights.

The pop punk still comes with not-safe-for-an-eight-year-old lyrics which just seem gratuitous amongst the suitable-for-an-eight-year-old pop fodder tunes, most of which will get huge rotation on commercial radio and no doubt pull the crowds for her next world tour.

Eminem, fun. frontman Nate Ruess and Lily used-to-be-Allen Rose Cooper grab cameos to make sure Pink spreads herself over as broad an appeal as possible, but this grrl's been spinning this "truth about love" for a while now and it's becoming a little stale.
