Try By P!nk

20 May

Try” is a song recorded by American singer songwriter Pink, released as the second single from her sixth studio album, The Truth About Love (2012). It was written by Busbee and Ben West, and produced by Greg Kurstin. The song is a rock ballad, about taking risks with love no matter the consequences. “Try” received mostly positive reviews from music critics who noted that it is one of the standout tracks on the album and called it a hit. Commercially, the song was a success, reaching number one in Spain and the top-ten in AustraliaAustriaCanadaGermanyItalyNew ZealandPolandSwitzerland, theUnited Kingdom and the United States, while reaching the top-twenty in most countries. The Floria Sigismondi-directed video features shots of a paint-covered Pink and her male counterpart expressing their frustrations through dramatic dance moves. The song appeared as the thirteenth song on the45th release of the American series of Now That’s What I Call Music. The song received mostly positive reviews from music critics, who praised its production. Andrew Hampp of Billboard commented “With a melody reminiscent of ‘Whataya Want From Me,‘ the 2009 hit she penned for Adam Lambert, the single already pairs well sonically with Pink’s catalog.  Josh Langhoff of PopMatters called it “an ode to romantic persistence over crisp ‘Hysteria‘ guitars.” John Murphy of musicOMH wrote that Try “demonstrates that she has a voice that not enough people give her credit for. For want of a better phrase, it’s a full-on power ballad, with yet more references to love going wrong, and the sort of thing you can imagine someone like Kelly Clarkson pulling off in her sleep.” Amy Sciarretto of Pop Crush also saw similarities with Clarkson, writing “It`s a belter with a soulful voice, and she sounds like Kelly Clarkson with this song. The midtempo track finds Pink mourning, lamenting and musing on a relationship that is breaking down at its core.

It hurts, but this song is a salve over the wound.” Dean Piper of Mirror Online wrote that “The stand out track and an obvious international radio hit is Try. Think how big and fabulous Who Knew was – try is on the same wavelength.” Sarah Rodman of Boston Globe called it a “keeper and an urging-to-victory battle cry,”  Robert Copsey of Digital Spy described it as “a ballad of the stadium-filling, lighter-waving variety.” while Caryn Ganz of Spin called it a “breakup salve.” Lewis Corner of Digital Spy gave the song 4 out of possible 5, writing that “Although she may not be treading new ground sonically, her passionate tones and solid determination will continue her chart presence – and rightly so.” Sal Cinquemani of Slant Magazine was less positive, writing that “the midtempo ‘Try‘, doesn’t push Pink forward either, and it’s marred by singsong lyrics.” Greg Kot of Chicago Tribune also shared the same thought, writing “No one, not even Pink, can save lyrics such as these.”
