Nov 5, 2013It 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.
Nov 15, 2013It’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.
Nov 5, 2013Pop 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
Nov 6, 2013"Avril Lavigne" is an amazing album where Lavigne has chosen and composed every song carefully, specially the production part. The whole sound is more mature than other previous records like "The Best Damn Thing". It's one of the most balanced albums I have ever heard, it's dynamic, funny, sometimes beautifuly deep and slow and the most of the time easy-going, expressing really good cheer.
On the other hand, the lyrics could be improvable in some tracks, cause sometimes they would seem repetitive in the cheery songs. "Rock N Roll" and "Bad Girl" are two of the best songs here in this fifth album.
The emotive tracks are simply perfect. From the big ballad "Let me go" to the sensitive and sadness that "Hush hush" reflects, passing through the absolutely incredible "Give you what you like" where Avril Lavigne shows all her talent, the catchy and really well structured "Hello Heartache" and the sincere and startling "Falling Fast".
To conclude, "Avril Lavigne" is one of the best albums of this Canadian singer. It's a great musical work that gives strength and positivity to everybody that hears it, and that's really hard to get.… Expand
Nov 7, 2013Best album of the year! Avril Lavigne excels every album releases and this is no different. Letters worked well.

Nov 8, 2013The album is actually really showing its varieties, I hope that many songs are enjoyed in good shape. None of the music disappointed, but I felt a lot of differences as the very said. Songs like Hush Hush & Give You What You Like has a good sound, hope she knows enjoy them.… Expand
Nov 6, 2013While Avril Lavinge experiments new genres, specially Electronic Music, which is good for any artist, this self-titled album is more of a hits and misses album and its odd collaborations with Marilyn Manson and her husband, Chad Kroeger, doesn't help Avril Lavinge tell the theme to her fans about not growing up.
Highlights: Here's To Never Growing Up, Let Me Go and Hello Kitty.
Potential Singles After the Album's Release: Hello Kitty.
Personal Favorites: Rock n Roll, Here's To Never Growing Up and Hello Kitty.… Expand
