5.0 out of 5 stars Av's back on form!, 6 Nov 2013
Admittedly the first two singles from the album were not especially good, but having listened to them a few times now - and played the album twice - it becomes clear that there actually isn't a bad song on 'Avril Lavigne'.

'Let Me Go' is possibly the best song on the album - and believe me I surprised myself by saying that! - but it's followed very closely by 'Bad Girl', 'Hello Kitty' and a couple of the others. Every song on the album is a potential single, covering all possible bases, so the next one is going to be tricky. I suspect that 'Bad Girl' will be the one - although some of the lyrics may prove troublesome for radio play. '17' is another contender. The album ends,… Read more

25 years after it was released, this album finally gets the CD release it deserves. First of all, the packaging is beautiful and far more striking than the original LP sleeve. Secondly, the 24 page booklet is nice, full of quotes and anecdotes and plenty of pics. The audio quality of the CD is first rate - awesome infact - and it is easy to hear the massive difference that exists between the UK and US mixes. Whilst the UK mix is great, it really does sound unfinished and demo-like compared to the US one. On the US mix, Coverdale sounds like he's in the same room as you and not nextdoor! Yes the drums are noticeably different, but I'd say they sound punchier. John Sykes really makes a… Read more
