    The irresistibly zippy, perceptive and, on two (possibly three) occasions, deeply weird Avril Lavigne reminds us that maturity sometimes means doubling down on what’s expected of you.

    For the most part, Lavigne's fifth full-length encapsulates everything worth loving about the 29-year-old's long-running artistry.

    It is basically the quintessential Avril Lavigne record, featuring the soaring choruses and melodies that made us fall in love with her over the past ten years, as well as the silly (and sometimes stupid) quirks that range from endearing to flat out annoying.

    As a collection of songs, this eponymous effort goes a long way to restore the singer to her rightful place as purveyor of some of the most carefree, feelgood pop around.
  5. It’s not going to be a new favorite album for anyone other than Avril Lavigne’s most ardent admirers, but a handful of great summer mixtape songs and a few other exercises in mindless pop fun are still enough to make Avril Lavigne the eponymous singer’s best record in nine years. That might not be saying much, but it's a step in the right direction.

    This bratty nostalgia trip is the best thing she's done in years.

    The most listenable song is the Chavril duet Let Me Go, which has zero of either musician’s “edge” and a whole lot of adult contemporary schmaltz.

    Pop perfection. Avril Lavigne brings out the best of the artist who doesn't want to grow up... but she did. And she's trying some new thingsPop perfection. Avril Lavigne brings out the best of the artist who doesn't want to grow up... but she did. And she's trying some new things like EDM music and hard rock. Though if feels a little "all over the place", the album is certainly one of the most genuine in Avril's career. It is easily one (if not the one) of the best records of the year. It's a shame we won't get to see it topping the charts. Congratulations, Avril! Expand

    "Avril Lavigne" is the space between the new and the nostalgic, the risk and insurance, the different and the weird, nothing would set better"Avril Lavigne" is the space between the new and the nostalgic, the risk and insurance, the different and the weird, nothing would set better this album than the fact of being self-tilted. It's totally Avril Lavigne and all its sides.
    There's a real maturity here, just wondering and wanting to see.
    After all what it is to be mature? Become another person? Run from who you've always been to please others? Think about it!
    One of the best pop albums of the year, particularly my favorite one.
    You need to hear: "Give You What You Like", "Bad Girl", "Hello Heartache", "Falling Fast" and "Hush Hush". Love or hate: "Hello Kitty".

On this album the singer shows that age does not influence anything in the life of the singer, as she says "we can stay young forever."

    Songs like 'Seventeen' and 'Here's To Never Growing Up' are very nostalgics and lovely's, 'Let Me Go' and 'Bad Girl' are so good duets, 'Rock N Roll' and 'Hello Kitty' are amazing pop songs. 'Falling Fast' an 'Hush Hush' are very amazing and sweet, cute like a "Goodbye Lullaby".

    The best damn thing.

    Avril Lavigne always Give Us What We Want..again, she's back with another flawless album. It is worth the price we pay for it. The albumAvril Lavigne always Give Us What We Want..again, she's back with another flawless album. It is worth the price we pay for it. The album definitely satisfy our thirst with 13 undeniable tracks especially "Hush Hush", "Bad Girl", "Hello Kitty", "You Ain't See Nothing Yet", Sippin' On The Sunshine", "17" & "Hello Heartache". All of these are not the released singles. This mean that Avril Lavigne is an album that consist of 100% potential #1 songs. Expand

    Can't stop laughing with her videos but Rock'n Roll is the most ingenious of them all, the false moustache! And why her dog is driving? Ha!Can't stop laughing with her videos but Rock'n Roll is the most ingenious of them all, the false moustache! And why her dog is driving? Ha! The part of the kiss seems a bit forced to prove she is whatever, brought a lot of unnecessary criticism, but I is a really funny video and hopefully there will be more! Expand
