Boat of Car ≠ Filler. Can I get an amen? --Benthorot 23:33, 21 Apr 2006 (CDT)

Amen! -Ganna
Amen Again! --Kris Wright 05:34, 7 June 2007 (UTC)
don't forget 32 footsteps! 32 footsteps is awesome too! --Antgeth 03:04, 31 October 2007 (UTC)

Who gave that review? It looks like the fans just threw it together without an attribution. VolatileChemical 16:59, 14 Jun 2006 (MDT)


I love the album art for this one... I always thought that the little house inside the aquarium looks just like the house from the Simpsons. Jade

Oh yes, the cover art is like, my favourite thing about it...next to the music. I also only just saw the back cover art. The little pictures of the Johns! --Sparkling_Omelets
Pictures, multiple? Not sure what you mean, but are you talking about on the dog? Cos yeh, that's pretty much the best thing ever. Hence it being what I'm getting tattooed next month. :D --Self Called Nowhere 01:20, 17 May 2010 (UTC)
Well, it's two Johns, so two pictures, no? I am infinitely amused by your desire to have John Linnell's unibrow etched into your skin. Why is chrome putting a red line under unibrow? -Apollo. 01:25, 17 May 2010 (UTC)
It's still one picture! Multiple things can be in one picture! Anyway, haha, it's not like he's just got a unibrow, it's one of those >:( kind of things. Because he is a cranky cranky man. --Self Called Nowhere 01:28, 17 May 2010 (UTC)
I don't really think it matters all that much. It's more of a >:{ face. Also, I think it's silly that he has a 12-bass accordion (though it looks more like 14-bass) which is totally pathetic! Haha. Yeah. I totally don't have a 12-bass. -Apollo. 01:36, 17 May 2010 (UTC)
Haha well if there were more bass keys the tattoo people would probably be all "OH NOES MORE DETAIL WE MUST MAKE IT EVEN BIGGER AND CHARGE YOU EVEN MORE MONEY." (They're already wanting it to be bigger than I expected.) And YES, if he did not have good hair I would sooooooooo not be able to do it. --Self Called Nowhere 01:46, 17 May 2010 (UTC)
Oh, yeah, because little dots are really tough. At least the corresponding number of piano-keys is right. You should just get a tattoo of just his hair. Like, from the Birdhouse video or something. And if you ever see him with the pompadour hair you can just hold your arm over his forehead. -Apollo. 01:55, 17 May 2010 (UTC)
Haha I know they're not complicated but seriously, these people. They're being all "We have to make it like 5 times bigger than you thought cos it's sooooooooo detailed and complicated" and I'm like "I didn't think it was that complicated..." Anyway, it's fine that there aren't enough bass keys cos it's not like he knows how to use them at all anyway, HA. Oh man, tattoo of just his hair would be pretty amazing, actually. Although I would probably have to do, like, multiple ones that way...the Birdhouse vid is the best of course but there are so many other good phases of John hair! So many! --Self Called Nowhere 02:20, 17 May 2010 (UTC)

I recently saw a new copy of this album at a local record store with a rykodisc green-tinted case. this made the other side of the back artwork visible, but it was just blank. just a weird little thing, is all... --Ehsteve14 04:08, 13 April 2007 (UTC)

Just got a vinyl copy of this... mint condition, baby! Anyone know where to get Lincoln and Flood in vinyl except for ebay? --Yamfox 8:11 pm, 15 February 2008 (My Time)

I think maybe sometimes you can get vinyl of the pink album at TMBG's store. http://tmbg-catalog.stores.yahoo.net/a1.html --Valerie 05:48, 16 February 2008 (UTC)


I've heard that the first edition of the CD version included a photo of John and John on the back cover sleeve -- anyone seen that/have a scan? - TODCRA 23:25, 17 October 2008 (UTC)

if by first edition you mean the ESD pressing, you'd have to ask Mr. CaptialQ. if i recall correctly he has said that it is essentially the same as the bar/none release apart from the logos --ant 23:45, 17 October 2008 (UTC)

I made a two-song mashup of the entire Pink Album. All tracks on the Pink Album are represented by at least one sample in one or both of the mashups. They can be found at [1] and [2]. HearingAid 00:49, 31 July 2011 (EDT)

Re-Release[edit | edit source]

Does anyone know if the re-release is distinguishable from the original release? Does the re-release not have the lyric insert? Also, perhaps something with the barcode on the back...If anyone has both of them, let me know. Thanks.

I have what I assume to be the re-release, and it doesn't have a lyrics insert. Other than that it looks identical to the scans on here, from what I can tell. --Valerie 20:09, 5 February 2010 (UTC)

AUS Rerelease[edit | edit source]

Can someone please add the bonus tracks listing from the new Australian rerelease like the page for Lincoln has?
