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

Product Description

Product Description

Let Go is the debut album by Canadian singer-songwriter Avril Lavigne. It featuers her smash hits "Compicated", "Sk8er Boi" and ballad "I'm With You"

Amazon.co.uk

Self-professed skate punk Avril Lavigne sings that she'd "rather be anything but ordinary" on her debut. While the fact that she had a record deal by the age of 16 separates her from the pack, too often Let Go's lyrical shortcomings drag the teenager's musically impressive recording entrée into the realm of the typical. The catchy choruses of Let's Go are substantial, though, thanks to Lavigne's riff-driven melodies and powerful vocals, which at times adopt the unorthodox intonation quirks of fellow Canadian Alanis Morissette. The nuanced, dynamic "Losing Grip", "My World" (which perfectly captures the ennui of suburbia) and the buoyant power-pop blast "Sk8er Boi" are the collection's highlights. But Lavigne's honest yet awkward words weigh down the likes of "Mobile", "I'm with You" and "Naked". "Nobody's Fool", which displays her Pink-like take-me-as-I-am credo, hints that someday Lavigne's lyrics will match the strength of her music. --Annie Zaleski

When you are listening to this album it's hard to fathom that Miss Lavigne is only 17 years old. Like Michelle Branch and Vanessa Carlton, Lavigne's songwriting and musical talent are far beyond her teenage years and although largely unknown in the UK, the release of her debut single 'Complicated' should go someway in helping her emulate her success in America.
So how would I define Avril Lavigne? Not unlike Michelle Branch, but slightly more angsty and with a little more to say. In some songs there is definitely an Alanis influence, both lyrically and vocally. That's not to say Lavigne is a copycat or mimic, far from it....the songs on 'Let Go' showcase a diverse talent with a varied range of songs.
The single 'Complicated' is an obvious choice, lyrically sound, with a chorus that will invade everyones head! But it is far from being the best track here. The opener 'Losing Grip' kicks things off in aggresive style, with the tale of a girl who's been pushed to the edge and is finally saying 'enough is enough'. Throughout the album, Lavigne's vocals adapt fantastically, from rock, to pop, to punk, a tinge of country and even a flirt with rap. Despite the different styles, no song ever feels out of place. Even 'Sk8ter Boi', which on first hearing may have you reaching for the skip button, slowly but surely wins you over.
Lyrically the album is strong, but as an artist Lavigne has a lot of time to mature and sometimes certain lyrics remind you that she is only 17. For me, the standout tracks on the album are 'I'm With You', a romantic, heartfelt and powerful balad, 'Tomorrow', a fantastic song about how our feelings can change from day to day, and 'The Thing's I'll Never Say', an outrageously catchy pop/rock song about the nervousness of telling someone how you feel.

Avril Lavigne sings with the realness that comes straight out beautifully from her songs on her first debut album, "Let Go", featuring the single, "Complicated", which hit the radio stations in 2002. Other songs such as, "Sk8er Boi", "I'm With You", & "Losing Grip", are just the type of songs that set her apart from all the other female artists of the POP/ROCK music genre, and not to mention, her style that goes perfectly well, along with the type of music that she sings! Avril puts all that she's got into each song on, "Let Go", and ranging from the first track to the last, there's no doubt that this female artist's got it made with her own individuality of music that lets the world know that she's definitely going to be in the music business for quite a long time for many years to come!

I bought this on the strength of the number one hit Complicated and I suspect that this was the albums nod to commercialism as it is without doubt the most polished and catchy track. While the album generally is not my taste in music there are some tracks that do stand out but for me what makes it so good is that it is real music. No manufactured pop here. This is someone who writes about things that are real and it is such a refreshing change to be able to actually want to listen to the lyrics of a song to find out what is being said. Hopefully she will remain faithful to this as her career progresses.

Avril made a name for herself when she released `Complicated' an energetic song about life and its complications, a beautiful chill out song.

It's the type of album which many would argue as conventional punk/pop but if you like it then I definitely recommend it, if you don't then I say have a listen to it anyway because it is enjoyable music, brilliance from such a young woman.

In particular I found the very passionate energetic song `Losing Grip' the best on the album with a great guitar playing from Avril.

There is some diversity on the album. The slow Tomorrow and I'm with you are worth the time to listen to and the poppy up beat My World and Naked are also great fun.

When I was a student Jagged Little Pill was playing every time we went into the Student Union bar, and for very good reason. There will have been many more eloquent comparisons between Alanis and Avril than this one; it's only natural, but where Avril excels is making her voice a vehicle for the song not the other way around. Let Go is an example that musical tastes are getting better after years out in the cold. I bought it ad hoc hoping it would be good and it was. I'm not sure it qualifies as punk as it's so melodic! If you like Alanis Morisette or Suzanne Vega, you will love this despite the slightly immature subject matter of the lyrics.

I got this album thinking it would be an OK album. I liked the songs that had been released and just thought I might as well give this album a try and if I didn't like it I could sell it.

Well lets just say I didn't sell it because it was wonderful and still is wonderful.

The songs are great, she wrote them herself. This girl can really rock and knows how to make an amazing album full of great songs. Even the songs that didn't get released are amazing and this is an album that can be played from start to finish without any need to skip any of the tracks.
