Pink – Beautiful Trauma

Five years separate Beautiful Trauma from its predecessor, 2012’s The Truth About Love — a half-decade P!nk generally acknowledges in lyrical themes, not musical terms. Chalk this up to a general maturation — the singer/songwriter is a happily married mother of two, creeping up on her 40th birthday — but her decision to do little more than nod at contemporary musical trends is deliberate, a reflection of how her hits and audience have crept toward the adult contemporary charts.
