Customer Review

on 10 May 2004
Although this song will probably do little to convert the sneering cynics, there will be no doubt amongst Avril's fans that she's come back as good as - if not better than - ever, with an impressive new single. Falling somewhere in-between "Complicated" and "Sk8er Boi" - but with a more insistent chorus than either of those two hits - "Don't Tell Me" is a near-perfect rock-pop song, with bombast and sentiment in all the right places.
The only downside is the lyrics, which although they're far from terrible - are peppered with occasional cringe-worthy couplets, i.e. "You held my hand and walked me home, I know/
Why you gave me the kiss/ It was something like this/ It made me go oh oh".
Also on the single is a live acoustic version (also, confusingly, on CD1), on which Avril's live vocals are far more impressive than ever before. It could certainly silence any critics who swipe at her ability to pull off live performances. Then there's "Take Me Away", which I have to admit surprised the me; it's far heavier than any previous song of hers. Only heavy in an innocent, Linkin Park/Rasmus mould, but still a notable new sound.
This CD bodes well for an eclectic, fantastic new album, and will keep the fans appetite's sated whilst waiting for it's imminent release.
