Product Description

Amazon.ca

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

4.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly Better July 3 2004
Format:Audio CD
UNDER MY SKIN is the sophomore effort by "bad girl" Avril Lavigne. While the music is still very much pop, the lyrics have more meaning to them and explore deeper into life. Avril left the boys of The Matrix and combined with Evan Taubenfeid, Chantal Kreviazuk, Ben Moody (Evanscence), Raine Maida, and Butch Walker to create her new voice and it shows in the tracks. While not as many radio friendly tunes as the debut, the album supports enough tracks to make a fine stay on the charts. Some of my personal favorites are as follows:
"Together" the tale of a couple who no longer feel they are connecting to one another.
"Don't Tell Me" the first single. The tale of a girl standing up for herself when a guy puts her down for not "giving it up" right away.
"My Happy Ending" the second single and the best track on the album. This tells of a romance gone bad and should remain on the charts throughout the summer.
"Nobody's Home" is the song with Ben Moody. It is the tale of a woman trying to find her way, but cannot.
"Slipped Away" is the song dedicated to her grandfather, who recently passed. Very nice tribute to someone she obviously cared very deeply for.
I highly recommend Avril's album, but if you are looking for a repeat of her first album, you will be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars KEEP IT UP KEEP IT UP... June 9 2004
Format:Audio CD
It's no doubt there was a big expectation for Lavigne's follow up. Gladly she worked with new and fresh producers and with amazing writer Chantal K. who helped her with a few lyrics. Overall don't expect to have the most introspective album deliver to us by this canadian brat. After all is her second album. The songs are simply delightful POP-ROCK tunes that aboards every theme from LOVE, SOLITUDE AND FORGIVENESS. This is a great album from the begginning to the end. Maybe the best coming out this year. Of course is unfair to compare ALANIS and AVRIL since their albums came by the same time, it's just not right because the both of them are talented and most of all different. Back 2 Avril's album, the best tracks are the history telling "Nobody's Home" were you can tell the desperation of the caracter, well sung by Lavigne, "Don't Tell Me" the leading single a in your face love song, about, yes! she's not an easy girl, how ironic, but then it's lovely to see somebody like Avril demanding respect. Love the momentuos of the last chorus, a great song. "Who Knows" this track sounds so anthemic and easy to sing along with, and a great track. "My Happy Ending" supposed to be the second cut to be release to radio waves, although is catchy and not bad at all, it's not one of my top tracks, but it's ok. "He Wasn't" souns a lil-ske8r boi alike, this is fast, and funny to hear that the man she expected him to be is not, "How Does It Feel" is a slow track of put yourself in my feet, this is a more mature Lavigne, "Forgotten" it's a total rocker song, another mature one, but it doesn't mean it's the best one.

"Under MY Skin" is a very good album. There are really only two mistakes in the album that keep it from beign truly great. Avril lack consistency in her lyrics from song to song. Most of the time her lyrics are very powerful and intriguing, but then she seems to run out of creative ideas and produce goofy lyrics. But if you think about it she is speaking to teenagers who are straightfoward and brutally honest these days and so therefore her lyrics work when you think about who she is talking too. Tyhe other problem is that she doesn't have a variety of stories to tell. Being a girl with boy problems is the soul idea for most of tthe songs on this album but her wonderful music and singing help make the ideas and lyrics sound a lot better. They way she delivers each of the songs about relationships is terrific in that she is not complaining about the break up like most pop singers do, she says it was time and she is able to move on. She sings with a determined, confident, agressiveness that is truly a breath of fresh air in todays music industry. The best song on the CD, "forgotten" is wonderful to listen to and sounds very much like a rock song, with some violions towards the end that only make it ten times better. Throughout the CD Avril hints at what I think she really wants to do, which is create some very powerful rock music and in the songs in which she tries it she does it beautifully. This album is very good and as she matures she will only get better. "Under My Skin" is definitely worth a look if you are searching for something with a little pop sound with true rock at its core.

1.0 out of 5 stars IT'S NOT DIFFERENT AT ALL, IS IT STEVE?! July 17 2004
Format:Audio CD
"Inconnu" by Zen Sauvage is one of the most solid works I've ever heard from an artist. While it would be easy to pin this album under the glitch aesthetic, there's an expansive, organic undercurrent that keeps this album from being a workout in funny noises. Muted analog beats drive slowly under vast washes of decayed house synth lines in the most natural of fashions. For moments, you forget this is an electronic album. Imagine Biosphere's "Cirque" at a more glacial pace. Best of all, the album is free. "Inconnu" is the sounds of life, the common and the strange. People are just a form of ant, the clouds orchestrate the mood the day, the drone orchestra of wind rattling through the trees, and the subtle realization there's so much being missed.
So where does this leave Avril Lavigne, you might ask? I don't care. I'd rather write a review of an album worth my time. This crap is low, even by teenage girl pop standards. Don't settle with this mediocrity. I beg of you to go buy an album of an artist you've never heard. Download the one I mentioned above from the Internet, it's free and actually dares to stimulate a form of higher thought in the individual. Avril Lavigne, well, we get a song about her not giving up her, uh, virginity. Yeah... umm... I hate you, Avril.
The album cover for this one says everything for me: Avril is a dull shade of gray in a vivid technicolor universe.

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 more
