Music: Pink HURTS 2B HUMAN / The Cranberries IN THE END
Pink HURTS 2B HUMAN
PURE pop (which one might expect), but this is an older, more mature Pink and the songs reflect that. It’s all still solidly written and executed, but yeah… the “Wanna party!” girl has been replaced by the “I’m a mom and a role model now… time to inspire some folks!” For the most part, it’s successful. There are still the fun, “party” tracks here and there. It’s just different now…she’s a mom.
The Cranberries IN THE END
The final Cranberries and man… is this record put an emphatic at the end of their career. Here’s thing… there have been a lot of bands out that resemble these guys (Japanese Breakfast, The Japanese House… to name two), but The Cranberries are the original “dream pop girl band” and this record shows why. If you’re a Cranberries fan, you will LOVE this record. If you’re new to them and wonder what all the fuss was about… this is a DYNAMITE place to start.
