Pink, "The Truth About Love" (RCA Records)

Listening to Pink's new album is like watching a reality show about the ups and downs of her relationship with her husband, motorcycle racer Carey Hart: She's over him at times, under him at others. There are fights, and makeups, and then more breakups. There are "I hate yous" and "I love yous." And all of it makes for good listening.

"The Truth About Love," the singer's sixth release, is an exceptional album that takes you through Pink's roller coaster of emotions, as her scratchy voice pierces on songs to create not just enjoyable tunes, but beautiful ones. Like 2008's "Funhouse," on which Pink detailed her then-estrangement from her husband, Hart remains the centerpiece of Pink's emotions.

"I hate you, I really hate you so much I think it must be true love," she sings over a fun beat on "True Love," which gets a cute assist from Lily Rose Cooper (aka Lily Allen). Pink wants her lover to return on the rock-filled "How Come You're Not Here," she's explosive on first single "Blow Me (One Last Kiss)" and wondering why love went wrong on the eerie and beat-driven "Where Did the Beat Go," singing lyrics like "I was naked and waiting for you to come back" and "you couldn't see anything beyond 'your baby's mama'" (the couple had their first child last year).

"Beam Me Up" is slow and gorgeous, and "Just Give Me a Reason" is an amazing, bluesy duet with Nate Ruess of fun. The album, which also features Eminem and was mostly produced by Greg Kurstin, continues to showcase Pink's versatility: This firecracker can pretty much sing a song from any genre.

Check this out: "Walk of Shame" is hilarious, sassy, upbeat and signature Pink.
