Returning after a five-year sabbatical, P!nk offers up her seventh studio offering, the phenomenal Beautiful Trauma. With production credits split across Jack Antonoff (of the band fun.), Steve Mac (Demi Lovato, One Direction), Max Martin (Katy Perry, Taylor Swift) and Shellback (Adele, Taylor Swift), the thirteen-track album was destined to be an amalgamation of sounds, from Pop to R&B, sultry dance numbers to piano-accompanied ballads. You cannot possibly pin a good woman down, and P!nk makes damned sure of that on this go-round!>br/> The dichotomy inherent in its title, Beautiful Trauma, is present throughout the album in tracks that sound like a festive dance or joyful embrace and yet sing of relationship breakdowns, yesterday’s sorrows, and plead for a more hopeful world. P!nk is a lady who never disappoints, and on lucky number-seven she is no different: amazingly infectious sounds ride the wave of her stellar, noteworthy vocals and create a sonic wonderland that is fully Pop and yet amazingly intelligent and insightful. Considering that her contemporaries are all auto-tuning the fuck out of themselves to attempt to hit one note, P!nk’s talent boggles the mind!
