Nobody can deny that P!nk is one of the most important Artists of the past decade. A critical and commercial darling, the tough-exteriored Singer/Songwriter has sold over 34 million albums worldwide since debuting as a pseudo-R&B/Pop Artist in 2000 with Can't Take Me Home. It wasn't until she found her own voice of 2001's Missundaztood that things sky-rocketed for her with smash hit Get This Party Started, followed by decidedly more Pop Rock singles Don't Let Me Get Me and Just Like a Pill. She sprung a surprise and people responded. And people just haven't stopped responding, thus the decision to release Greatest Hits.... So Far!!!
The 19-track Collection, a comprehensive review of P!nk's phenomenal career, is offered to Fans with the inclusion of two new recordings, Raise Your Glass and Fuckin' Perfect. Neither particularly remarkable, although the former did land on-top of the Billboard Hot 100 Chart. Overseas Editions of the album include even more tracks, like her original version of Whataya Want From Me, eventually recorded by Adam Lambert (his version wins) and Heartbreak Down.
Otherwise, all the essentials an appreciator of P!nk's music would need are on here, although it is clear she'd rather more of her recent work be featured here. Bad Influence and I Don't Believe You which perhaps are a bit more obscure to Radio listeners are chosen over earlier hits like Most Girls, God is a DJ and Feel Good Time (from Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle). Even Glitter in the Air heard in her unforgettable 2010 Grammys performance, is for some reason omitted. What a Voice, what a Catalogue, what a Holiday gift idea. P!nk's Greatest Hits.... So Far!!! from Sony Music is in stores November 16, 2010. Grade: A
