I'm not dead

| No Comments

I should be at the store, buying foods, but instead I'm listening to the new P!nk CD titled "I'm Not Dead"I'm Not Dead, released on April 4th 2006. It just arrived this morning and when I had it in my hands, I immediately felt this was going to be something special. The case is not your regular CD case to start with. This one has a curved edge, and a special opening/locking mechanism for the case itself. That being said, it doesn't contain just a CD, but a Dual Disc.

One side features DVD content, the other side a full CD album. I'm not yet sure if I like the dual disc solution, as I know most of my CD's end up getting scratched and bumped after a couple of years, even if I'm very careful with them and try to place them back in their case as soon as I'm done listening. With both sides of one disc containing data, I can only guess it'll be sooner rather than later that one side fails on me. But that's a question Father Time will have to answer. If anyone has more real life information on how their Dual Discs compare to regular CD or DVD's, feel free to leave a comment.

For the time being I'm testing out the CD side of the disc, and I don't want to withhold you a full track listing :

1. Stupid Girls
2. Who Knew
3. Long Way To Happy
4. Nobody Knows
5. Dear Mr. President
6. I'm Not Dead
7. Cuz I Can
8. Leave Me Alone (I'm Lonely)
9. U + Ur Hand
10. Runaway
11. The One That Got Away
12. I Got Money Now
13. Conversations With My 13 Year Old Self
14. Fingers [Unlisted Track]
15. I Have Seen The Rain (featuring her father James T. Moore) [Unlisted Track]

Simply going by the titles, it almost appears as if she's struggling with something personal, and the songs themselves suggest the same. They are more introverted but still energetic. "Mr. President" is a protest song with a message :
Dear Mr. President, come and talk a walk with me
Let's pretend, we're just two people and
You're not better than me
I'd like to ask you some questions, if we can speak honestly.
What do you feel when you see all the homeless people on the street?
Who do you pray for at night before you go to sleep?
What do you feel when you look in the mirror? Are you proud?

"Cuz I Can" is the first song on the album that reminds me of older P!nk albums, kicking it up a notch. I'm sure this new album will be played a lot over the next few days, so I can get to the bottom of it. For the time being "Fingers" (unlisted track 14) is my favorite. A review of the DVD side of "I'm Not Dead" is forthcoming as well!

On sunday October 1st, P!nk will be performing in Sportpaleis Antwerp. Tickets available from TeleTicketService for €32 to €36 (+ service charges). Concert starts at 20h30.
