    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.

Avril comes with sounds that only she can do: Simple, catchy sometimesAfter some disappointments in the Pop (hello ArtPop, Prism).... Avril comes with sounds that only she can do: Simple, catchy sometimes energetic, sometimes exciting. And at this time with two mores perspectives: Hello Kitty, the funny, electro-dubstep-Japanese Catchy song... and Bad Girl, with the Marilyn Manson.

    Highlights to Rock n Roll, Let Me Go, Give You What You Like and Hush Hush.

    Great job Avril!

    Avril presents her 5th studio album which is lovely and addicting, one of the bests 2013's albums.
    "Avril Lavigne" starts with Rock N Roll & Here's to Never Growing Up. If you only know them, know that it's the worst parts on the album. Not bad.
    We have a break with '17', and joy with Summer. Let Me Go and Give You What You Like are also adorable.
    Track 7 to 10 The best parts on the album are coming.
    Hello Heartache is the top.
    After this, we're falling fast and hushing.
    Great job, Avril. Many feelings.

Avril fez um trabalho bem nostálgico nessa sua era, o que agradou muito os seus fãs antigos, mesmo sendo o seu trabalho mais pop.
    eu achei um album muito agradável, e cada musica para mim foi uma chuva de nostalgia.
