'Sonic Highways' Lackluster and Monotonous

Honestly, the degree of commitment vis-à-vis the actual quality of the album is embarrassing. There’s something fundamentally lame about this wasted effort—the listener is left with a small kernel of pity for this anachronistic dinosaur of an album that makes it impossible to regard with anything more than condescension.

'pom pom' Intermittently Successful

There are stretches of “pom pom” that are honest and quite beautiful. But Pink layers on so much irony that it is hard to know what to take seriously.
