Avril Lavigne's 2002 debut "Let Go" gave young women a defiant voice and set it to music they could rock out to. Fourteen million albums and eight Grammy nominations later, the Canadian chanteuse returns with "Under My Skin."
"Under My Skin" opens with the dramatic tracks "Take Me Away" and "Together," which set the scene for the kick-ass guitars and radio-ready chorus of "Don't Tell Me," a song of willful female empowerment that picks up where "Complicated" left off. From there it's a one-two punch of three-chord guitar licks ("He Wasn't") and head-bopping optimism ("Who Knows") alongside swirling, brooding melodies ("Freak Out") and moody tracks ("Forgotten," "Nobody's Home") that reveal a darker side of Avril Lavigne.
Working with producers Butch Walker (of the Marvelous 3), Raine Maida (of Our Lady Peace), and Don Gilmore (Linkin Park, Pearl Jam), Avril co-wrote the dozen introspective songs on this new album.
With her breakthrough 2002 debut, Let Go, Avril Lavigne tried to market herself as the bona fide alternative to tarty teen queens, Britney and Christina. Her guitar-pop hits were irresistibly bratty but the whole "Complicated" teen pose was a little hard to swallow, especially since two songwriters called the Matrix--who had at least twenty years on the Canadian singer--fed her most of the material. Having had the chance to live a little, Lavigne returns to make good on her angsty image with Under My Skin, an album rippling with delightfully dour melodies and heartfelt lyrics about loneliness ("How Does It Feel") and fractured relationships ("Don't Tell Me"). Is it clichéd? Sure. Will it scare off her necktie and t-shirt wearing fans? Possibly. But there's nothing quite as satisfying as watching a teen-pop icon actually reveal her soul. --Jaan Uhelszki
It was her first CD and saw her very first concert tour. My daughter introduced me to her music, and it spoke to a lot of what I needed to hear at the time it came out. Read morePublished 17 months ago by Wharris
This album is another great works for Avril. She has a captive voice & lyrics
I recommend this album to age group 13-58.
Here is Avril's second album, featuring a more mature and darker side of her. To this day, I do not understand why she named this album "Under My Skin", it's so strange. Read morePublished on June 1 2008 by Qian Song
