This album is a pop album. This album is prodominately aimed at young females. This album does not have any incredibly well written tracks on that people will look back on in 100 years. this album is extremely commercial. Now, I am a huge music fan, I mostly listen to metal, hip hop, indie and generally rock. I am a seventeen year old male with a beard and not an overly sentimental personality and I believe this album is brilliant. Lyrically this album is an absolute god send. The lyrics are what sets Avril apart from the other 'girl next door' types who've recently popped up like Vanessa Carlton and Michelle Branch. Avril Lavigne proves in this album that she is already ranking alongside the likes of Sheryl Crow and looks set to take the angst crown from Alanis Morissette with her next LP 'Under My Skin.' It is pop music and the best tracks on the album from a musical point of view are some of the ones she has released (Complicated, Losing Grip and I'm with you) but there are some other brilliant songs on the album too. It won't name them all because the tracklist is just above but Mobile, Nobody's Fool and Anything but Oridnary are three brilliant songs. I strongly recommend that you buy this album whoever you are. So long as you are a human being between the ages of 0 and 123, I mean this, everyone can emphasise with the lyrics and everyone will have the tunes stuck in their heads for months.

I first heard of Avril when Radio 1 kept constantly kept playing Complicated on their playlist & i thought "wow this is one the best singles i've heard in a long time" so i decided to buy the album next time i went into town. A lot of time after you by a bands/artists record after hearing the singles you can be slighty dissapointed due to the fact that the rest of the tunes do not amount to the quality of the singles which made you by it. I often find with a lot albums you buy there tends to be a few tracks which you flick on but i'm very pleased to that Avril's album is one of the first which i've bough in a long while with which you don't get bored with any of the tracks after a while. There is quite a lot of material within this album which quite a lot them are of good enought quality which could be release as singles such as "Mobile" "I'm with you" "Tomorow "Anything but ordinary" & my personal favourite of the album "My World". I found that the majority of the tracks of this album are realy easy to relate to from the fast track & the slow balads. I can't wait for Avril to play some UK gigs which i'll definetly go to see & there is no doubt in my mind that she'll sell out every single date. If you need any more proof of the quality of this album just check the charts top ten as she's been there ever since the album was released & i cant say i'm surprise, i cant wait for her next one

I hadn't heard of Avril Lavigne until seeing her single 'complicated' on MTV and I loved it from the first time I heard it. However in my opinion the track complicated is not the best track on this album although it still is very good. The quality of the entire album from track 1 till track 13 is amazing. I really can't say there is one song I don't like on this album.
Its also got a great layout, with 'Losing Grip' starting off as a very strong rock vocal track. In the middle of the album Avrils vocals are given more centre stage with tracks like 'Anything But Ordinary' and 'Things I'll Never Say'. This gives the album variety which is very welcome and makes it great listening too. Each track is unique in its own right, but they are not filling up the album like which happens so many times. As I say its a quality album from start to finish and thats how I listen to it because theres not one track Im prepared to skip.
A very talented young woman with a great debut Album

If u like semi-cheesy rock-pop tunes, then this is the must have album of the year! There is not one song on this album that u won't like! We have the superb 'Sk8er Boi' which just jumps right out of the stereo and smacks u in the face(Turn it up LOUD)! And then there are delightful and laidback tracks like 'Anything But Ordinary' and 'Complicated'. Along with 'My World' in which Avril describes were she comes from with great effect and melody. Watch those lyrics, they really r catchy. The good thing is that Avril writes her own music which makes it all the better. This album has not left my CD player since i acquired it, which can't be said for any other album that i've acquired over recent times. Go buy it and enjoy!

I bought this as a bit of a gamble and it paid off.
Avril Lavigne's CD reminds me of Sheryl Crow's Tuesday Night Music Club. Avril sings loud, confidently and with a lot of depth. Like Sheryl Crow, many of the tracks are quite complicated and tell a story; but where Sheryl Crow is laid back, Avril is faster and more 'in your face'. Most songs grab your attention with lots of textured shout out loud rock.
I particularly enjoyed 'Anything But Ordinary'. It is a great song with juicy heart felt words. Avril is a welcome relief from the soft, sugary female vocals I would associate with S-Club-7 or manufactured girl bands.

First of all, this is Rock - pop!! It is a fantastic piece of work! Every song on this album was written and sung well!! I don't have a bad song on here or anything bad to say about this album because it has been put together so well. There are some very very good songs with great chorus's and choice of words used! The songs are catchy, and there are some nice mellow tunes on here with some heavier songs in as well. But this is brilliant especially if you are an Avril fan and if not, this is still a genious at work!! Deservedaly the success it has been!!!!!

With the current surge of teenage americans invading England like Michelle Branch and Vannessa Carlton, the success of Avril Lavigne was always going to be an uphill struggle. I purchased this album in America on an impulse buy, and am starting to think I should do that more often.
Lavigne (pronounced La-vine) kicks off with the punk-rock influenced Losing Grip, a thrashy number which you'll be tapping your toes to all the way home. Then some slightly friendlier, upbeat tunes follow. Sk8r Boi is a classic example of Lavigne's creativity. The album ranges-angry, happy, sad, upbeat, slow-it shows Lavigne's ability to write contrasting tunes
The album is very autobiographical, and the Multimedia extras included are a refreshing change. She openly talks about how her success and record deal came about. She's a happy, lively artist-and deserves every success she gets (you'll see what I mean with the video on the subway)... Classy, independent stuff. Worthy of every bit of praise she recieves.

VINE VOICEon 12 November 2002
For one so young, Lavigne displays a remarkable musical maturity on her debut album, both musically and lyrically. She has obvious talent and has produced an album that makes good use of those talents. That's not to say there's not room for improvment. While obviously going to be a really good lyricist with time and experience, occasionally on this album the lyrics let her down; but only occasionally. She sings about things that any teen can relate to and her voice is strong. Musically the album is pretty diverse, and she pulls it all off; the harder tracks "Losing Grip" and "Unwanted" are especially good. There will be people more than ready to criticise Lavigne just because of her age, and who will say she's trying too hard to be cool or "punk", but while it's indisputible that this is more pop rock than anything else, I think this album shows honesty and genuine attitude, and I would definitely recommend it.

The first I heard of this artist was the track "complicated" which I thought was outstanding and I decided to hear more, there is no possible way to dislike this album, the opening track is extremely powerful with the tremendous "complicated" following, and once you're into the first chorus of track 3, "sk8ter boi", you're hooked. This album is a consistently brilliant showcase of masterfully produced pop/rock that will undoubtedly have huge mainstream success as well as appealing to the more alternative music fan. the only disapointment hear is track 6 which is a bit too heavy for Avril to pull off but it's soon forgotten thanks to the somewhat moving "anything but ordinary" and my personal favourite "things I'll never say" which just gets better every time. Buy this album, she puts Michelle Branch etc. to shame and deserves to be a megastar!!!!

Avril's debut album is amazing, as is her second. She is a free spirit who isnt afraid to do or say what she wants to. If you want catchy songs and brilliant singing, then buy this straight away! AVRIL RULZ!!!!
