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

Amazon.co.uk

Under My Skin, the second album from Avril Lavigne, doesn't stray too far from the formula that made her debut, Let Go, a multi-million seller. Acoustic guitars bolstered by rock riffs in the chorus and sing-along vocals for angst-ridden teens confirm Lavigne's reputation as Alanis Morrisette's mini-me.

Although similar in style to her debut, it is clear that Lavigne has matured greatly as a singer and in some cases, songwriter. Lead single "Don't Tell Me" may not have the instant appeal of "Complicated" but has a greater depth and just gets better with every listen. Opening song "Take Me Away" sets the style for much of Under My Skin--sounding like Stiltskin's "Inside", it's a grandly over-produced power ballad by numbers. However, with 80s rock still on the rise and no-one new out there doing it nearly this well, it can only be a good thing. "He Wasn't" and "I Always Get What I Want" break the mould of the album and are high-energy pop-punk of the highest order, the latter an obvious standout--one would imagine it'll become a huge live favourite.

It may not be anything new, exciting or different but Under My Skin is so well written and executed it'll undoubtedly propel Avril Lavigne into a whole new stratosphere of rock stardom. --David Trueman

5.0 out of 5 stars rock music as good as it gets 13 April 2007
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I haven't listened to this kind of electric guitar dominated rock/pop music for 15 years or more and I've got to say that Avril Lavigne is as good as anything I've heard in the past.Good lyrics,rythms,aggressive but subtle and,even beautiful singing,with the requisite attitude from hell all make Under My Skin something worth listening to again and again.

This is a cd that made me actually want to go and see a live performance.

Great stuff!

5.0 out of 5 stars Thankfully, Avril's decided to Let Go a bit 23 Aug 2004
By "dumpw33d" VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
"Let Go" was a great album, no question. In late 2002, on to the scene burst pop music's female equivalent of Dennis The Menace - the fiesty, the fiery, the frighteningly tiny Avril Lavigne. The record was the perfect 21st century pop package - every song fuelled with both alternative attitude and commercial appeal. On "Under My Skin," she does it again, except this time she decides to be herself a little more. Out with commerical appeal, in with alternative attitude.
Right away, a sense of honesty and genuine emotion is gained from opening stormer "Take Me Away" and the even better "Together." The catchy pop hooks remain, but the somewhat plastic facade of the rebellious teenager has been replaced by the sincere angst and confusion of a young woman approaching adulthood. Similarly on the singles - the slightly disjointed "Don't Tell Me" and the bonafide hit "My Happy Ending" - a feeling comes about that Avril is speaking her own mind this time, as opposed to the A&R man's.
The defining moment comes halfway through the record in the shape of downright classic "Nobody's Home," a thunderbolt of dark, irresistable pop-rock. If this song doesn't get Avril Lavigne taken seriously among all those "real music fans," nothing will.
At times, Avril slips back in time two years. The likes of "Freak Out" and the "Sk8er Boi" sequel "He Wasn't" seem intrusive, butting in from "Let Go" to disturb this album's clear progression. However, being as inevitably catchy as they are, she is easily forgiven - especially when you reach yet another masterpiece like "Forgotten."
As a whole, then, Avril has triumphantly improved in many different areas.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's not punk but I love it. 18 July 2004
Format:Audio CD
As a 20-year-old male who loves punk rock, it was difficult to imagine myself buying anything by Avril Lavigne. But after having the lyrics to "My Happy Ending" stuck in my head for five days I finally conceded and bought "Under My Skin". Not being the obvious target audience for this album I didn't expect much, so I was incredibly shocked by just how good it is.
The highlights of "Under My Skin" for me are "My Happy Ending" which is a lesson in pop-rock perfection. Never has a song stuck in my sub-conscious for so long despite my efforts to remove it! The UK bonus track " I Always Get What I Want" comes closest to being punk, as it happily rocks along (turn it up loud) with entertaining lyrics. "Take Me Away" is a great opening track and sets the scene for an essentially melancholy album that at times borders on the dark.
But the crowning glory and surprise of this album for me is "How Does It Feel". In essence this is three minutes of utter poignant beauty, which does in my opinion highlight the true talent and maturity Avril possess. Her voice on this track took my breath away and left a lump in my throat, it hit me that hard.
The rest of the album is high quality, although the lyrics of "Who Knows" make me cringe and would be best suited to S Club 7. However I still found myself singing along to it!
Overall, again I was surprised at just how good this album is. The quality of its production is staggering and it has a clarity that makes it easy to listen to with either the volume set low or cranked way high. It doesn't matter that Avril isn't punk; it doesn't matter if she's commercial. This is quite simply a great album.

5.0 out of 5 stars TWO WORDS (THIS ROCKS) 21 Jun 2005
Format:Audio CD
Everyone should have this album, The extra 4 tracks show Avril at her best Raw Live Music, not tweaked about studio stuff such as what others churn out. It is a shame that this album seems to not have had any publicity. So this is just to say buy it while you can. Personally I Rate her right up with The Boss and Pat Benatar. The DVD extra is quite cool, you get to see Avril shopping in a road side supermarket in Ireland and sightseeing in London. (excellent value for Money especially from Amazon)
