Unsolicited CD Review of the Day

I know what a CD is. My question is, what is the difference between a "record" and an "album"? Does anyone know? When the music people give out the "Record of the Year", "Song of the Year" and "Album of the Year" awards, what the heck is the difference??? Can anyone explain it to me?

But that's not why I'm writing.

I'm writing to tell you, because no-one asked but I'm going to give you my opinion anyway ..... go get a copy of P!nk's "Funhouse". Buy it, download it, steal it, I really don't care.

Wait, yes I do. Don't steal it.

I have been a P!nk (and since when is she P!nk? I thought she was just Pink. It's like Prince turning into that little unpronouncable hieroglyphic ... what's with the exclamation point?) fan for years and own several of her cd's.

Funhouse is my favorite. Hands-down, and that's saying something. Every single song on this cd is sing-along-able. Except one, but I won't mention it, because I don't want to skew anyone's opinion ahead of time. Unless it's to skew you to download it. Because seriously, it's worth it.

You won't be sorry.

And if you already have it, I'd love to hear what you think.

I'm positive it will win Record Song Album of the Year. At least it will if my vote counts or anything.

Oh, wait. I don't vote. But still --- go get it.

I TOTALLY agree! It is, by far, her very very best record/song/album/cd/whatever yet!

Oh my god. Could not agree more.

Pink totally rocks. My housemate and I went to see her in concert last year in Melbourne, and she loses nothing live. She is every bit as awesome. Funhouse would have to be her best work yet, the only song I didn't like was One Foot Wrong. For some reason, it just doesn't sound as good as the others to me :-) I've had Crystal Ball on repeat for the last few days, I'm just in love with it!

Merry Christmas, and all the best for 2009 from the other side of the world :-)

I have way to much time on my hands... Album of the year is for the whole thing. Song and Record have to do with who wrote the song and who sang the song. I think Song is the writer that gets the award and Record is who recorded it. I embarrass myself with the fount of useless trivia I carry around in my head. Maybe that's why I can't remember to send a snack to school or put my dog's collar on so that when he decides to break out he doesn't look like some sort of homeless mutt. Anyway I digress... I'm on my way over to Itunes to check out P!nk.

Love, love, love Pink! Though when she was on the radio the other day I told my 4 year old that the singers name was Pink. My daughter asked why a boy would be named Pink. I guess her voice *is* kind of husky, isn't it?!

Can't imagine you liked "Dear Mr. President," though I did. ;)

An album is a collection of songs...a record is a flat, round vinyl disc with an album of songs recorded on it!

P!nk rocks.

I just bought the cd yesterday...and have listened to it over and over again! I love the song Sober!

I went out and bought the Funhouse CD the day it was released. I have always been a huge P!nk fan and I do agree that this is her best Album yet! In fact I am listening to Funhouse right now at work. Hope you and yours have a great Christmas.

Do you have the clean version or the explicit version?

Also, I wonder where Kim downloaded for $2.22??!!??

So..I have to leave a comment because I just LOVE this CD!!! 3, 6 & 10 are my favorites with 1 a close 4th. I love 3 the best because I have never heard Pink do a ballad that good..and 6 and 10 just totally rock!!
