    Lavigne splices the angst of Alanis Morissette and the snarl of Courtney Love into a debut full of sunny guitar pop. [#8, p.115]
  2. 80
    Unlike any of the pop princesses that have gone before her, however, Lavigne offers a sound far more guitar-heavy, and lyrics packed with unshakable attitude.
  3. Avril is not some brilliant songwriter, and her voice is good, but not amazing, and her ‘tude is a little ridiculous at times. Despite this, she is the most refreshing and exciting girl in pop rock today.
  4. Lavigne's monochromatic debut set of unimaginative guitar rock is saved only by the earnestness of her songs.
  5. Q Magazine

    Lavigne displays a musical guile way beyond her years. [Sep 2002, p.109]
  6. The problem is Lavigne is still so young she's listening to the radio hits of the '90s and early 2000s: she's Pink when she's bucking authority, Alanis Morissette when she's angry, and Jewel when she's sensitive.
  7. Most of it is pretty middle-of-the-road female singer-songwriter tripe.

    One of my favourite debuts. Avril Lavigne may not be the most talented vocalist, song-writer nor sexy female of our time. However, her One of my favourite debuts. Avril Lavigne may not be the most talented vocalist, song-writer nor sexy female of our time. However, her emotional views and lyrics can cause for adoration. 'Losing Grip' is the obvious most hardcore track, showing her desperation for a less futile relationship. 'Too Much To Ask' is another slow burner, typical at first, then developing into its despicable chorus. Expand
