Pink is an album by Japanese band Boris, released in 2005 on Diwphalanx Records in Japan and subsequently reissued in the US on Southern Lord. The album received very favourable reviews, largely for taking a more melodic and accessible direction than the band's previous work.
A music video was also shot for the title track, but was limited to less than 100 copies on DVD. It was later included in the limited CD+DVD Southern Lord version of the album 'Smile'.
The opening guitar of "Farewell" may be a tribute to Nick Drake, as it sounds much like the instrumental track "Horn" from his 1972 album Pink Moon.
The full-length version of "Farewell" from the vinyl edition also appears on Variations, although the beginning fades in slightly.
Critical response to Pink has been positive. At Metacritic, which assigns a normalized rating out of 100 to reviews from mainstream critics, the album has received an average score of 80, based on 13 reviews.
Different cover from Japanese pressing; has same audio overall as the Japanese CD apart from featuring the same extended cut of "Just Abandoned Myself" as the Japanese 2xLP. The cover art features pictures by the poet and artist William Blake depicting Satan from his illustrations to John Milton's Paradise Lost. The album also comes with three paintings of devil imagery on sheets of what resembles perforated "blotter paper," usually associated with LSD. Also, the misspelling of 'abandoned' to 'abondoned' on the album sleeve and online MP3 tagging seems to be intended.
