Inside Of Love
Watching terrible tv, it kills all thought Getting spacier than, an astronaut Making out with people, I hardly know or like I can't believe what I... See the rest of the song lyrics

  1. Blender

    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
    60
    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.

    I am Avril Fan. Let Go is more like a pop album when she is infact a Rock Star. (People may disagree but it's true) For Pop loving I am Avril Fan. Let Go is more like a pop album when she is infact a Rock Star. (People may disagree but it's true) For Pop loving people it would be awsome but for me, she could use a little more rock. However her voice and lyrics have forced me to give it 9. Expand
