Biography

When singer, songwriter, and musician Avril Lavigne first burst upon the music scene at age 17, she was known as a young, pop-punk tomboy who refused to resort to skin-baring come-ons, preferring to entice the record-buying public with her powerhouse voice, high-spirited melodies, and straight-talking lyrics. Staying steadfastly true to herself and putting music before image paid off both ... Read more in Amazon's Avril Lavigne Store

Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

With her breakthrough 2002 debut, Let Go, Avril Lavigne tried to market herself as the bona fide alternative to tarty teen queens, Britney and Christina. Her guitar-pop hits were irresistibly bratty but the whole "Complicated" teen pose was a little hard to swallow, especially since two songwriters called the Matrix--who had at least twenty years on the Canadian singer--fed her most of the material. Having had the chance to live a little, Lavigne returns to make good on her angsty image with Under My Skin, an album rippling with delightfully dour melodies and heartfelt lyrics about loneliness ("How Does It Feel") and fractured relationships ("Don't Tell Me"). Is it clichéd? Sure. Will it scare off her necktie and t-shirt wearing fans? Possibly. But there's nothing quite as satisfying as watching a teen-pop icon actually reveal her soul. --Jaan Uhelszki

5.0 out of 5 stars Avril's done it again. August 2, 2004
Format:Audio CD
In my review for Avril's first album, I wrote, "This is the best CD I've ever listened to in my life. Avril is *almost* your average 17-year-old punk. The only difference? Her amazing talent." My opinion changed a bit after seeing her live. She only played guitar on 2 or 3 songs, and her voice must've been altered a lot on the CD, because it didn't sound that good in concert.

However, I've bought "Under My Skin" and I have to admit that Avril's done it again--she's convinced me that she's awesome. Unlike with her first album, she wrote or co-wrote all of the songs. They're more angry, and they rock harder than the ones on the first album; those songs are more upbeat and pop-ish. Even though she only plays guitar on one song, whoever's doing it does a pretty good job. Also, Ben Moody, formerly from Evanescence, plays guitar on "Nobody's Home", which I thought was pretty cool.

It's hard for me to pick which songs I like the best, because they are all so good. I think anyone can relate to the lyrics on this one. Most of them are about a break-up with a guy. For the people who are complaining about that, like "Your Doom 'Beware' ", I think writing about a breakup is a good way of taking out bad feelings about it. I don't see why it's so bad that most of her songs are probably about the same guy. It's not boring to me at all. Also, if you don't like her, why did you spend money on the album? The words might be simple because she's still young and hasn't had a lot of experience writing lyrics. It's idiotic how people don't understand that musicians are still human.

4.0 out of 5 stars C+ For Avril June 4, 2004
Format:Audio CD
Overall, it's a decent disc. As I sit here listening to it again, I'm still really big on the sixth track, "My Happy Ending." It's the best song on the disc, with a catchy chorus, some great hooks and a song that fits her voice style.
That is one of my biggest complaints with this CD. Avril Lavigne can't really sing. Hence, a lot of the songs sound alike. If you like her voice and the scratchiness/strain of some of her vocals, you will fall in love with this CD. She frequently sounds like she's whining on the higher vocals, but the grittiness of her style shines in some of the songs ("He Wasn't," the single "Don't Tell Me," "Freak Out").
Lyrically, which is what I really look for in music, the disc is a mixed bag. Highlights are "My Happy Ending," "How Does it Feel," and "Who Knows." Though still laced with cliche, these are probably the strongest lyrically. Sophomoric efforts include the single "Don't Tell Me," "Freak Out," and "Take Me Away." I mean, honestly: "I cannot find a way to describe it, it's there inside, all I do is hide, I wish it would just go away, what would you do if you knew"--how many times have we heard these lyrics? You know those wonderful moments when a lyricist puts a brilliant new spin on a traditional phrase and you're so thankful you got to hear the song? No such moments are in this disc. I do like "Happy Ending" because of the spin it puts on the traditional fairy tale phrase. "How Does it Feel" is a tad more mature, doesn't sound so whiny (but you know, as I listen to it, it's pretty stinking cliche too...all the way through it)...and "Who Knows," while cliche, has some nice moments. Gosh, who am I kidding? Every song has very cliche pathetic moments lyrically.

Format:Audio CD
Following up a smash hit debut album is possibly harder than getting that first magical recording contract in the first place - the artist oftentimes feels he/she must outdo himself/herself, and fans oftentimes resist any deviation from what has come before. Many young artists crash and burn, never to be heard from again. Avril Lavigne is not among those, and with this really quite incredible sophomore release she cements her place in the present and future of the music industry. While there are echoes of Let Go to be found here, I found this to be a surprisingly different album from its predecessor - the artist has grown as a person, a musician, and a song writer, and the expanding life experiences of this remarkably talented teenager have infused her music with a palpable sense of something quite real and deep that speaks volumes to the listener.
I have been listening to this album constantly since it came out (and I might mention Avril Lavigne is one of the few artists whose new album I simply had to purchase as soon as it was released), and I can't find a bad song on here. Not only is this a five-star album, it is a collection of twelve five-star songs, in my opinion. I have a sentimental attachment to many of the songs from Let Go, but as a whole this new album is a much more impressive offering. Avril co-wrote each of these songs, and as far as I'm concerned, the doubts some voice about her song-writing abilities are quite misplaced. The first single, Don't Tell Me, is a great song and in some ways it forms a natural bridge from the first album to the second, but it is far from the best song on the album. Take Me Away starts Under My Skin off with a bang; there's no gradual immersion into this new album, as Avril reaches out and yanks you by the collar from the very start.
