Mar 15, 2011Faced with competing for "pop" ambitions this "rock" wannabe never really had, she instead strides toward brunette-dom on the new, stalwartly unfun Goodbye Lullaby, which--if you couldn't tell from the piano on the cover-means Vanessa Carlton and Michelle Branch. This is the death of Auto-Tune, moment of silence. Except, you know, for the single.
Mar 27, 2011AMAZING album.
and different to what music is now, she took a risk and we should appreciate that. 'cause she even fight against her record label and they finally release it after 2 years! I really hope she can smash with this album as she has done with her previous ones.
'What the Hell' and 'Smile' are good singles that can fit on today's music but real talent is shown on the rest of this album a very deep and good album.… Expand
Apr 2, 2011To be honest, I was moved on how emotional the tracks on the record. The only problem is "What the Hell" was chosen as the lead single which does not represent the record. I was even happy that it does not sound "What the Hell" because it will just be a repeat of her 2007-hit album. You just can't find if it sounds good or not because its really emotional with her voice, the piano, and acoustic guitar. It's not boring but it's not just the trend today.… Expand
Aug 23, 2011Avril Lavigne has been able to successfully change her appearance as the years pass as well as project very different feels for each album released but musically and artistically she hasn't GROWN. The main concern I have is that Avril writing hasn't really gotten any better since her debut. She tried releasing her first real mature (and not the faux-mature she claimed her angst-ridden Under My Skin was) album and it kinda didn't deliver. Under pressure from her label there was a few radio friendly pop songs thrown in which kills the over all mood Goodbye Lullaby was supposed to have. It would've been more coherent without those songs (What The Hell, and Smile) but it wouldn't have saved the album. The mediocre childish lyrics of "I Love You" and "4Real" are perfect examples on why this album didn't meet it's potential. The only moment Avril really shines is on "Not Enough." It's a pretty disappointing album from a voice that has so much potential.… Expand
