The music is so anodyne that you don't pay much attention to Lavigne's lyrics. This proves to be a small mercy: examination of the CD booklet reveals that prolonged exposure to her words could leave a previously healthy adult rocking backwards and forwards in a foetal ball.
NormanG.Oct 26, 2007Personally I think this is her best debut album B/c it contains varios kinds of songs and its deep.
EmilyWNov 25, 2005This album helped me so much through a time which i was very upset and confused, but on purchasing this album, I overcame the problem effecting me at the time. I believe that music is very therapeutic and influences how you feel at a certain time, or even heightens it as well. Surely everyone has had this experience at some point in their life?! Well. . . I love this album so much and is definitely one of my favourites. My favourite songs on this album include don't tell me, he wasn't, how does it feel, happy ending, noboy's home and fall to pieces I LOVE IT, SHE ROCKS!!! GO AVRIL!!! can't wait til her next album!!!… Expand
madelinepJun 22, 2004Avril Lavigne really expressed herself in this album. She proved that she matured and that she is not a kid anymore.
raVenFeb 15, 2005(7.5) So she's no Bronte sister. Anyone remember the last decade, when our pop teens were serving up cheese like "Mmmbop" and "Baby, One More Time?" Sure, the album has a ton of yeah yeahs and na-nas and oh ohs. (She even spells them all out in the liner notes for those who feel like singing along). And maybe sometimes it seems like it makes use of the same fifteen-or-so lyrics, and just resequences them for each song. Admittedly, this is a problem when she doesn't have a Grade-A melody. But on songs like "My Happy Ending" and "Nobody's Home," you simply don't CARE that the words are a little thin because her voice sounds so damn good singing them. The latter, in fact, is one of her two or three best period - that's including all those hooks from "Let Go." Her sound is quite addictive, and her voice holds and never loses your attention. But I hope for her next release she sheds some of the schoolgirl cliches. She has scratched out her very own niche, and it's up to her to fill it with a poetry deserving of her killer presentation.… Expand
