Product Description

Product Description

2002 debut album from the Canadian pop diva including the hits 'Complicated' and 'I'm With You'.

Amazon.ca

Alanis Morissette, what have you wrought? Even a dewy-eyed innocent like Avril Lavigne can't escape the big guitar angst of Morissette's Jagged Little Pill, the influence of which is all over the young singer's debut like cinnamon on a bun. Opening track "Losing Grip" and "Unwanted" are two of the more obvious clones, while first single "Complicated"--as undeniably catchy as it is--borrows the finger-poppin' groove of "Hand in My Pocket." Oh well, for an artist not yet out of her teens, Let Go is quite an accomplishment. Besides the obvious Alanis-isms, the disc also offers a slick pop-punk revenge fantasy in "Sk8er Boi" that will make just about any spurned teenager cheer as the heroine heads into the recording studio "singing the song we wrote / about the girl you used to know." (Older listeners--that is, anyone of drinking age--will cringe mightily.) And kudos to Lavigne for giving props to her small Ontario hometown in "My World," where she sings "Grew up in a 5000 population town / Made my money by cutting grass / Got fired by a Fried Chicken ass! / All in a small town / Napanee." At this rate, she'll never have to fill another bucket of the Colonel's greasy product again. --Shawn Conner

When I saw Avril on TRL and she was Carson's pick of the week I thought she was absolutely awesome at first site! Avril is a 17 year rock skateboard person from a small town in Ontario. I would reccommend this to anyone who likes Vanessa Carlton or Michelle Branch but Avril is better. She is very similair to those three (each play an instrument, are young, write their songs, and arent victimized by teeny bopper stuff). This whole album is written by Avril!
Losing Grip-This is one of the more rock songs. It has a cool, catchy chorus but a little to hard rock for me-8/10
Complicated-Avril's first single-one of the two more pop/rock songs. Absolutely brilliant! The music video is really cool and the lyrics and everything. It is also mixed really well. Probably the second best song on the cd-10/10
Sk8r Boi-This will be her second single. Sorta of like Complicated but I think it has a more catchy chorus. I also love the lyrics on this I think they are pretty funny. My favorite song on the cd-10/10
I'm With You-This is one of Avril's ballads. It has a catchy chorus (like all of her songs). In this song you can her how great her voice is-9/10
Mobile-This song is one of the sorta rock songs. Another one with a catchy chorus-8/10
Unwanted-This song reminds me of Vanessa Carlton. Another of the hard rock songs. I don't really care for this track-7/10
Tomorrow-This is a really pretty ballad that is very nice to listen to-9/10
Anything But Ordinary-In this song Avril speaks out about not wanting to bel ike other people. It has cool lyrics. Another catchy chorus-10/10
Things I'll Never Say-One of the many songs that almost sounds at the beginning like it is Scottish. She even does a little Scottish chant thingy at the beginning of this one. It is pretty cool.

Format: Audio CD
This is the best CD I've ever listened to in my life. Avril is *almost* your average 17-year-old punk. The only difference? Her amazing talent. Her voice is fierce, her guitar expertise is slammin, and her words are easy to relate to. She's a mix of Michelle Branch and Alanis Morissette. Here is how I rate each of her songs (out of 5 stars):
Losing Grip: *****
This is one of my favorite songs on the CD. I *love* the music!
Complicated: ****
Her hit single. I think it's pretty good, but not one of her best.
Sk8er Boi: ***
The words tell a cute story.
I'm With You: *****
This is also one of my favorite songs. I like the words.
Mobile: ***
I like the chorus.
Unwanted: *****
Another of my many favorites! This song is very emotional.
Tomorrow: ****
This song is slow, sweet, and quiet.
Anything But Ordinary: ****
I like this song, especially the chorus.
Things I'll Never Say: *****
Another favorite. The words could've been written about the way *I* feel, they're so much like my life right now. This is the best song on the CD, in my opinion.
My World: ***
Some of the words in this song are funny. (A *good* kind of funny, mind you.) And the part about her hometown sounds a lot like my own.
Nobody's Fool: ****
I like the guitar. And it's cool that she can do both rap *and* rock. I like the "la-la"s.
Too Much To Ask: ***
This song is sad. I can feel her pain.
Naked: ****
This is a nice song. It's a good one to leave you with.
I hope this review helped! :)

I love avril so much, she's changed the pop charts into more of a rock sense of music! Avril is like the best person for anyone to look up to! Some ppl say that she is a poser, well, she's not, she never said that she was punk, and she does play guitar a little bit, if she didn't then she wouldn't use it in her videos! All of the ppl that are calling her a poser are just mad because Britney could never ever be that great of a vocalist or a person!
Toodles!

It was very easy to get sick and tired of teen-aged girls singing dance-pop as there seemed to be an endless supply of them for several years. Finally we have a new artist playing rock, and while one might be tempted to give it high-marks for that alone, the fact is Avril Lavigne earns high praise for her debut album, "Let Go". Avril Lavigne was just 17 when she released this album in 2002, and while it isn't perfect or anywhere near the best rock album ever, it certainly was a breath of fresh air.

The album opens very strong with "Losing Grip", "Complicated", "Sk8er Boi", and "I'm with You" which are the four main singles from the album. The fifth piece, "Mobile" was also released as a single, but only in Australia and New Zealand. Though these are all singles, there is still a fair amount of diversity in them. "Complicated" and "Sk8er Boi" both have a bit of a Teen Pop feel to them. "Losing Grip" is a heavier piece, and "I'm With You" is a ballad. "Mobile" is a bit of a reach as a single, but is a decent piece and falls somewhere in the middle. Next up is "Unwanted" is another heavier piece, and gives the album some depth with a solid piece which is clearly not a single. "Tomorrow" is the midpoint of the album and one of the weaker pieces on the album, but still not a bad song, and once again it offers a bit of diversity from the harder style rock which is what most of the album is.

"Anything But Ordinary" brings the quality back up, and starts off a string of Teen Pop songs. "Things I'll Never Say" falls into the same category somewhat, and is another solid contribution to the album. "My World" is another teen angst piece, and continues with the Teen Pop feel of the second half of the album.
