By Lawrance Bernabo HALL OF FAMEVINE VOICE on August 31, 2004
Format: Audio CD
The CD single performs a different function that the 45's of our youth, which makes a big assumption that Avril Lavigne's fans are old enough to remember when 45's were still made (they should: the mass production of 45's ended circa 1990, but they are still made in limited quantities for jukebox operators who have not upgraded to newer CD jukeboxes). In the old days the purpose of the single was to give you a taste of what could be found on an album and you could have the hottest single without having to pay for the entire album. But from time to time you could find some songs on the "B" side that you were not going to find on an album, such as the Beatle's "You Know My Name, Look Up My Number" and Fleetwood Mac's "Silver Springs." That is why the chief attraction on the "My Happy Ending" CD-Single from Avril Lavigne is not the title song, but the two live acoustic versions of that song and "Take Me Away," along with the previously unreleased "Take It."

With her sophomore album, "Under My Skin," Lavigne (who may well be the second most hated artist on Amazon after Charlotte Church), heads off in a more mature and arguably better direction. After her singles "Complicated" and "Sk8er Boi" both went top 10 I had Lavigne pegged as another female teenager singer-songwriter with pop sensibilities and shallow lyrics. But for "Under My Skin" there are two key changes. The producer is now Don Gilmore (engineer on Pearl Jam's "Ten" and producer of several Linkin Park albums) and fellow Canadian singer-songwriter Chantal Kreviazuk (who I recognize from "Time" on the "Uptown Girl" soundtrack) has a hand in writing half of the dozen tracks and does piano, keyboards, and string arrangements as well.

The second single off the ever popular, Under My Skin. Avril shows over her vocal range in "My Happy Ending". The song is quickly climbing up charts giving "Don't Tell Me" a run for its money! Avril cleverly combines the beats of rock/pop and punk to fit like a glove in this wonderful written song with a good message. I can't wait for her next single, "Take Me Away" to drop!

A Kid's Review on October 16, 2004

Okay I admit I don't have the CD. But I have listened to all the songs a million times on the internet and at my friends house. Anyway this CD is pretty good.

But a little grown up for some younger adiences. So I would recommened it for 14 and up. The best song on this CD is My happy ending.

I think her first CD was better and more appropiate for younger adiences. But if you want to buy it. Buy this CD!
