According to Rollingstone.com, Pink teamed up with Tim Armstrong of Rancid for nine of the fourteen tracks and with Linda Perry for at least two tracks for her new album ‘Try This.’ On the album’s fifth cut, “Oh My God,” she gets into some girl-on-girl action with rapper Peaches. Yet even this seems like a warm-up for “Catch Me While I’m Sleeping,” a Prince-like ballad produced and co-written by Perry. In “Try Too Hard,” another Perry-helmed winner, she takes on a wanna-be who tries to be “different” by copying the right people. Is it fellow Perry collaborator Christina Aguilera? Avril Lavigne? “It’s people like you that make me sick/I’m surrounded by you everywhere I look,” Pink cries, changing the first “you” to a self-deprecating “us” for the final chorus. The strongest Armstrong contribution is the final, hidden track, “Hooker,” where Pink takes on another clueless, possibly famous villain. It’s the glee with which she delivers her put-downs that’s so thrilling.
