Beautiful Trauma (RCA Records)
From sparse, romantic ballads to dance floor anthems, P!nk’s latest is a sonic buffet with a little something for everyone — as exemplified by the record’s glorious first single, “What About Us.” P!nk co-wrote all 13 tracks on the album, working with a wide variety of A-list producers including Jack Antonoff (Carly Rae Jepsen, Fifth Harmony, Lorde) and Greg Kurstin (Adele, Sia, Tegan & Sara) among others. P!nk continues to stick to her own playbook rather than cleaving to music trends. As a result, the album’s closing tracks — “I Am Here,” “Wild Hearts Can’t Be Broken” and “You Get My Love” — could arguably be called the strongest selections in her entire catalog, and she sounds more triumphant and passionate than ever.
