Some music is celebrated for its elegant subtlety; Pink's slams you over the head. Four albums in, she's not changing her formula. I'm Not Dead touches on bulimia ("Stupid Girls"), war-mongering politicians ("Dear Mr. President"), teen angst ("Conversations With My 13 Year Old Self," "Runaway"), overheated pickup artists ("U + Ur Hand"), and gross materialism ("I Got Money Now"). None of it, in other words, is for featherweight listeners. Then again, none of it suits eggheaded college tastemakers either. Where this translates, then, is with those willing to man up and embrace what makes Pink Pink: her spellbinding ability to render rebelliousness in all the many colors of the rainbow. Neil Young-inspired acoustic guitar is sketched into "The One That Got Away," but it's just as quickly scribbled over by Joan Jett-style ranting (on "Long Way to Happy") and Janis Joplin/Joss Stone-fueled howling (on "Who Knew"). Even R&B gets its turn ("I Got Money Now"). The album also includes appearances from the Indigo Girls, who duet on "Dear Mr. President," and Pink's father, who joins for the hidden track "I Have Seen The Rain." Pink pulls all of this off, and probably without even breathing hard. She's not dead. --Tammy La Gorce More from Pink

I love this CD! I totally 'get' P!nk's sense of humor-she is a huge talent!

Downhill but still good

"Generally, I prefer rock music, but Pink is still one of my favorite singers. This album is very different from Misundaztood, which I also like a lot. She had a lot more to say in Misundaztood, whereas some of her new songs are sort of unoriginal. While she doesn't have the greatest voice of all time, she's still good, and all in all I thought her CD (especially the song "Cuz I Can") very much worth listening to."
Not as good as before, but very 'pink'!

"'I'm Not Dead' is P!nk's 4th studio effort, and yet, she still rocks gd! OK, maybe not as well on this CD! She is less rock, and more pop-ballads here. Though it's obvious this album doesn't outdo her previous album, she being the only executive producer for her album cannot be the faultline.
To make it clearer, I rate this album 3.5 stars, but, rounding it up, it adds up to 4, i guess... or would 3 have been more honest?
Anyway, though the 1st single 'Stupid Girls' was one of the most talked-about singles of 2006, it will eventually rub off one day, and everyone's going to get sick of it:
1. Stupid Girls (7.5/10) Good effort, hilarious video, but will eventually get very tiresome
2. Who Knew (7.5/10) Pop/ballad does just ok.
3. Long Way to Happy (8.5/10) Definitely one of the best rock tracks on the album.
4. Nobody Knows (8/10) Enjoyable ballad
5. Dear Mr President (8/10) Love the chorus! Good job!
6. I'm Not Dead (8.5/10) Starts off hauntingly, with an unexpected chorus that has less of an angsty element.
7. Cuz I Can (8/10) A little mixed. GOod enough song.
8. Leave Me Alone (7.5/10) Probably one of the most disappointing songs on the album... very Lindsay Lohan, but it still leaves an impression on u with the cheesy fast tunes.
9. U+Ur Hand (8.5/10) Love it!
10. Runaway (8/10) Difficult to judge, but overall and good after-chorus.
11. The One That Got Away (7.5/10) She tries to go bluesy here, but it turns out a little but hard to judge.
12. I Got $ Now (8.5/10) Unexpectedly, it turns out a sad song.
13. Conversations w/ my 13yrold Self (8/10) Not as promising as it looked to be, but the ending presents itself well. Could do without the chanting of 'conversations with my 13-yr-old self', though.
14. Fingers (9/10) Best track on the album! Very dominatrix-style
15. I've Seen the Rain (7.5/10) Very smooth-going. Me-likey!"
