Editorial Reviews

2011 release, the fourth album from the Canadian Pop diva. Two years in the making, Lavigne worked with longtime collaborators Deryck Whibley, Evan Taubenfeld and Butch Walker, as well as songwriter/producer Max Martin. Lavigne continues to share her personal experiences through her writing and music, and Goodbye Lullaby is a further evolution of this, propelled by a more raw and organic sound.

Avril Lavigne built a strong fanbase and then caught herself in something of a conundrum: her first album was a pop/rock fusion with catchy radio tunes such as "Sk8er Boi" and "Complicated" mixed in with darker fare like "Unwanted" and "I'm with You"; her second album was a raw, darker rock sound with excellent hooks and still one or two pop sounds ("He Wasn't", anyone?). Then, something changed -- literally, everything. "The Best Damn Thing" was Lavigne's third album and saw her with blonde hair streaked with pink, and every song on the album drenched in goopy bubblegum pop. With this move, Lavigne's fanbase seemed to split itself in two: those who were perfectly fine with the 'new Avril' and those who desperately wanted to see her 'return to herself.'

"Goodbye Lullaby", the oft-delayed, much-anticipated fourth album from the challenging singer-songwriter, is both a rich return to roots, a powerful maturation of what we've already seen, and also a simple look at life.

There's been some genuine criticism of "Lullaby" from critics who decry the simplicity of the songs, but one of the complete charms of the album is that it genuinely feels like Lavigne invited listeners into her living room while she sat at her piano or strummed her guitar. There's no grand procession of chords because Lavigne cannily realised, she didn't need them. "Lullaby" is not just a song detailing her failed marriage, it's a firm introspection on how far she's come from the teenage mall-punk she started out as. The singer stated herself that most of the songs were written in her bed or whatever hotel room she was staying in, and it truly, truly shows.

But there's still so much of the Avril that we all have come to know and love over the years as well.

For an older guy like me, Avril Lavigne's first two albums were the ultimate guilty pleasure; I couldn't resist her infectious brand of rock despite her youth and the average age of her fans.

While I didn't much care for the direction of 2007's The Best Damn Thing, I still recognized her undeniable talent and remained hopeful her music would mature as she grew older.

Goodbye Lullaby is quite different from her previous releases, mainly from the standpoint that most of the musical rock edginess and looseness is no longer present. This is a collection of simple & repetitive, mid tempo, light pop songs. You'll hear a lot of strings and electronic percussion, familiar pop rock chord progressions and melodies, and thankfully a minimum amount of crazy special effects. If you were hoping for more upbeat, catchy pop hits like "What The Hell", you're basically out of luck. Don't get me wrong, there are hooks all over this album. But the songs seem to lack power, and it certainly doesn't help that there are no distorted guitars to be heard.

While the majority of tracks are very similar, a few do stand out. It's hard to not get excited listening to "Push", a song that really pushes Avril's vocal range, and good luck getting the chorus of "Wish You Were Here" out of your head after you've heard it a couple of times. Its triple-trifecta of hook phrases ("Damn, damn, damn", "here, here, here" and "near, near, near") is the finest example of crafty pop songwriting on the album. "Not Enough" includes real drums, good dynamics and edge, easily making it my personal favorite. "Remember When" and "Goodbye" are respectable ballads, containing perhaps the two finest vocal performances from Avril on the record.

This new CD from Avril Lavigne is completely different than her three previous albums. This is is full of ballads and for the most part are well written. Standouts include Push, Goodbye, Wish You Were Here, Stop Standing There, and Smile. This album, while unique, sounds more like her first album, if any. It took a couple of listens to get hooked but on the third time I found myself digging the new sound. I enjoyed this album two-fold more than The Best Damn Thing because this album is personal and has a deeper feel to it. I'd really like to see these as acoustic numbers during her next tour. Try it!

Avril Lavigne releases her best album yet! The world of female dance artists in popular culture is a touched market that's for sure. With Lady Gaga, Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera, it's very easy to not be able to tell them all apart, especially if you're not a follower of the genre.

Then you get Avril Lavigne, an artist among the bunch who does stand out. And with her new album release "Goodbye Lullabye" she does just that tenfold. She stands out and not with marketing, dancers, lights and sex. No she does something else, she focuses on the music. This didn't come without a fight from her record company of course. They pushed her to make a dance record since that's where the money is. Avril decided to instead let it sit on a shelf for a year not releasing it at all until they gave in.

Having just recently ended a relationship Avril cracks herself open and raw to reveal a greater more mature album to date. Every track is better than the last. This is saying a lot since her weakest track is the bubbly poppy single release, "What the Hell". I hoped the rest of the album wouldn't be that way and luckily it's not! It's more rock and more Avril back to her roots. It's emotional. It's melodic. It's forceful and strong.

She took a nosedive with her last release four years ago with "The Best Damn Thing". An album which I put up there as not one of her best. I felt she sold out to the teen queen pop machines the music industry has been force feeding us for ten years. Now she comes back with what I consider to be her best work to date.

Anticipation and Thoughts Of Sales...
I really don't know anything about sales or marketing. But my level of anticipation for this album is very high. ↲

I was vaguely familiar with her music when The Best Damn Thing was released, and I gave it a shot. It was just a tiny bit too skanky/loud/popish for my taste, but I still loved it.... Read More

Pre-order not coming on time?
even if you preordered it several days in advance, it wont ship until release date. Amazon gives you the option of preordering with two day shipping (it's about 4 dollars extra) if you want to receive the CD on the release date. I wouldn't re-buy from itunes, unless you want to. I'm expecting my... Read More

Censored or Uncensored
I don't think this one will carry an explicit sticker. There may be a few mild or moderate swears here and there, but not enough to be censored or carry a label. That's just what I think, but I wouldn't know what to tell you with 100% certainty.
