LAVIGNE AVRIL

Amazon.co.uk

The first clue to the sound of Avril Lavigne's third CD, The Best Damn Thing, comes in the form of her kickoff single, "Girlfriend," which is filled with singing, clapping, and cheerleader-style chanting. The song is quite a sonic contrast to her previous disc, Under My Skin, which was considered to be Lavigne's more mature follow-up to her 16 million-selling debut CD, Let Go. Like that debut, The Best Damn Thing will be largely and deeply embraced by teenage girls, and is packed with songs that will create enthusiastic sing-alongs in concert. There are a handful of numbers that will appeal to a wider audience; "Innocence" and disc closer "Keep Holding On" would both fit perfectly in a Gray's Anatomy episode, while the sultry message and solid harmonies in "Hot" will appease ears of many ages. Lavigne's husband, Sum 41 frontman Deryk Whibley makes an appearance as producer and instrumentalist on a handful of tracks; their union, however, seems to have bred more than love. "I Don't Have to Try" and "Everything Back But You" both have a frenetic pace and chorus that is so eerily Sum-like that if they weren't married, a copyright lawsuit might ensue. That aside, the record oscillates between lyrically acerbic fare ("One of Those Girls," "I Can Do Better") and fluffy sugar-pop melodies ("Contagious," "The Best Damn Thing") delivering far more spunk rock than punk rock. --Denise Sheppard

Not a bad album, but be warned, this is a censored version. In order to get the explicit version you have to pay a few pounds more and get the "special edition". I'm not the world's biggest fan of unnecessary profanity, but I find silence in the middle of lyrics annoying.

Just be aware of this fact...

Girlfriend - Great lyrics and a fantastic start to the album. I promise that you will be singing along to this song within minutes. 9/10

I Can Do Better - Possibly the worst song on the album, sounds a lot like Girlfriend. However the song is still catchy and isn't one that you need to skip through. 7/10

Runaway - Reminds me a lot of the old Avril songs, great chorus and verses. 10/10

The Best Damn Thing - I love the way the lyrics just flow in this song and how Avril sings about how happy she and how her "Cinderella story scene" has come true. 10/10

When You're Gone - The most beautiful song i've heard in a long time, the lyrics are really truthful and are sung perfectly. MUST HEAR! 10/10

Everything Back But You - Good upbeat song which follows perfectly lifting the album after When You're Gone. 8/10

Hot - Hailed as one of the greatest songs on the album, I beg to differ there are much better songs on this album. However it is still brilliant :D 9/10

Innocence - Made me cry! 10/10

I Don't Have To Try - Another fantastic song that keeps the album going from strength to strength. Lyrics are a bit poor compared to other songs but excellent nonetheless. 9/10

One Of Those Girls - I love the verses on this song, really good hooks :D 9/10

Contagious - My favourite song on the album, shame it isn't longer. 10/10

Keep Holding On - This song brings a nice clean ending to the album and finishes perfectly. 9/10

I bought this album because I really liked the single 'When You're Gone' and I'd heard 'Girlfriend' which is really catchy. I wasn't disappointed. I have the CD on my car stereo constantly now! It's great! I especially love 'Innocence' which is a haunting ballad, and I listen to it over and over without getting bored! Fantastic!! I think all the songs are catchy - Avril just keeps getting better.

Ok, the first two albums are better than this, but this is still a great album to listen too! I have listened to it quite a few times now since I bought it on release and it has grown on me even more. There are some songs on here that do sound different from what she has done on the previous two albums, and like one reviewer said, there is maybe a little Sum 41 sound like in one or two, but there are some big tunes on here that sound great and similar to her old stuff. When your gone, best damn thing, hot, runaway, keep holding on, innocense and everything back but you are all great songs. This album is very good and I know some people have gave it 1 and 2 out of 5 stars because shes changed her style on this album, but I feel shes only changed a little bit but the album is still decent to listen to and it is Avril Lavigne! Some people got to learn that one or two songs that are different doesn't mean its a bad album, but in my opinion there isn't a bad song on it, but there is one or two that are different from what she has done and isn't as good as the previous albums or the songs I mentioned earlier on the album, but its still a good album and there should be a few more number ones for her if she releases the songs that are stated above in this review because they are very good songs to listen to! She is a great singer and has many talents. Please be aware that there are two versions of the ablum, one that has no swearing in it, and one that allows swearing, which is this album. But this is stil a 5 out of 5 star album because like I have said, there is some very good songs on here that will grow on you too! Go buy!

As an Avril fan, her third and latest album, "The Best Damn Thing", has been both a pleasure and a disappointment.

In the couple of years since she released "Under My Skin", Avril Lavigne has left the teenage bracket of her life, become a twentysomething and become somebody's wife. So naturally one would expect any future endeavours to be slightly more mature; something that attempts to move away and upward from the "aggressive-teen-angsty" gimmick that she originally used to sell herself with. "The Best Damn Thing", very unfortunately, does not do this.

The single that has been released as the representative of this album is "Girlfriend", which, although catchy, is reminiscent of something Lolly would have released. And regrettably, about a third of the album continues this style of song - upbeat, jumpy, poppy, annoying. It's not totally awful, but it's just not Avril; although, by the amount she actually uses this style, you'd think she wants you to think that this IS Avril - or at least the future of Avril. When you first hear the album's title track "The Best Damn Thing" you truly think that the producers accidentally put "Hey Mickey" onto the CD. Although I must admit, whereas before I would skip this one immediately, when I gave it a chance it actually proved to be an ok track. But it's still just not Avril - and I am dreading the quite likely moment when she decides to release this one next.

She redeems herself though with gems that are hidden amongst the folly, in the form of the slower, gentler tracks - namely "When You're Gone", "Innocence" and "Keep Holding On", which are reminiscent of "I'm With You" and really are affecting.
