Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - David Sprague
Like peers such as Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera, Avril Lavigne has done a lot of growing up in the years since the release of her smash debut album. But in stark contrast to those gals, the spunky Canadian hasn't manifested that change in a strictly sexual context. Instead, she's made a concerted effort to mature as a musician, unloading The Matrix the slick production team that helped push Let Go to multi-platinum status and moving beyond the unreconstructed anger of that effort. She's still speaking her mind, as evidenced by "Don't Tell Me," on which she gives an earful -- and nothing else -- to an oversexed suitor. But the presentation of that song, as well...

Barnes & Noble - David Sprague
Like peers such as Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera, Avril Lavigne has done a lot of growing up in the years since the release of her smash debut album. But in stark contrast to those gals, the spunky Canadian hasn't manifested that change in a strictly sexual context. Instead, she's made a concerted effort to mature as a musician, unloading The Matrix the slick production team that helped push Let Go to multi-platinum status and moving beyond the unreconstructed anger of that effort. She's still speaking her mind, as evidenced by "Don't Tell Me," on which she gives an earful -- and nothing else -- to an oversexed suitor. But the presentation of that song, as well as love-life musings such as "Together" and "Fall to Pieces," is a far cry from the pubescent angst of "Sk8er Boi." Under My Skin has plenty of sonic variety. "He Wasn't," one of a handful of songs co-written by fellow Canuck Chantal Kreviazuk, combines a bouncy new-wave melody with a sweetly sung kiss-off to a guy who wasn't well versed in the realm of chivalry "He wouldn't even open up the door". Lavigne even takes a cue or two from Sarah McLachlan, most notably on the ethereal "How Does It Feel," perhaps the most vulnerable song she's yet recorded. A kinder, gentler Avril? In a sense, yes, but the girl-power undercurrent is still strong enough to assure listeners she's not about to become a pushover.
Rolling Stone - Kelefa Sanneh
1/2 For her new album, Under My Skin, Lavigne split with Matrix, the team that wrote much of Let Go. Working with an unlikely crew of songwriters -- her guitarist Evan Taubenfeld and the Canadian singer-songwriter Chantal Kreviazuk -- she put together an album that's both more satisfying and more formulaic.

    almost as good as Let Go!

    i feel that Under My Skin is almost as good as Let Go. Avril shows more of her voice in her second CD than in the first. my favorite songs for this CD are nobody's home, don't tell me, and happy ending. i totally recommend this CD as well as Let Go! Go Avril... Rock On!

    Better than "Let Go"

    I bought both of Avril's cds. Out of the both of them, I liked "Under My Skin" way better. I loved this cd so much. "My Happy Ending", "Nobody's Home", and "Fall to Pieces" are just a couple tracks that I enjoyed. If you haven't bought it already, you should.

    avril ROX!

    I dont get why most people i know dont like avril?! I lOVE avril!!! Let GO and Under my Skin are both really good! In the first cd avril sometimes sounds like a-yuck!-country singer though. 'things i'll never say', which is in that cd, is like the best song ever though!! BUt in both cds the songs are all good-except for two or three. I love avril though. Her lyrics are so AWESOME! They really realate to the young people of this world and they really reach to us! From heartbreak to emptiness to happiness, avril's songs speak to us all! And if you dont have one of cds you are missing some great songs!

    Alright

    Avril has a wierd voice. Personaly I don't really like it. But there are some songs that I do not mind listening too once and a while (and she doesn't do too bad on them) like "Take Me Away" "Together" and "My Happy Ending" and it is the music we care about and not how the clothes and stupid stuff they do. Some songs are just too much for me like "He wasn't" "Fall to pieces" "Slipped Away" "Don't Tell Me" and all of the rest of the :stuff: on the cd. Lyrically this cd is all right, but the voice can get high tense. Listner be aware.

    This CD (And artist) is terrible

    Avril Lavigne has less talent then a brick! This album doesn't even deserve one star. Don't buy it, it's a waste. She can't sing, she can't play guitar, and she sounds like she's singing out of her nose! My friend even said she sounds like a cat dying when she sings! She can't hit high notes for the life of her. She's a major poser.

    TERRIFIC CD!

    This CD is one of my favorites! There's no chance that I wasted my money here! All the songs are so great and the lyrics are like she found my diary and put them into music. I love albums like that because they mean so much more if you can relate to them. Anyway, really cool CD. I'd recommend it in a heartbeat!

    Nice album! Her voice on her first album sounded a little like a beginner, but now, her voice is awesome! A little accent, but still a great voice!!!!

    Worthy of 5 stars!!!!

    Okay, maybe Avril IS kind of a punk-wannabe/poser but still, she is an awesome singer. Her last album was icky, but this one is so awesome!!! I'm so happy she changed. I just hope she doesn't turn into a trashy singer-actress like my other fave actresses and singers have.

    Gettin Beneath My Skin

    I think earshot is a very well writer and produced the CD. The musicisians, vocalists, and artist are a great watch. I would not even know of earshot if I was not in the CD section of the store watching music videos. While looking for some CD’s I heard a song they have produced titled “wait”. I stood in the isle watching their music video. I had enough money to the CD and I had to have them. I love it, Some of the songs I can totally relate to. Especially the fifth song “Rotten inside” and “Should have been there” I believe their music is able to speak to you. If you just give it a chance and listen very closely to their lyrics.

    Gettin under her skin

    This Cd is awesome! At first I thought it was a little more dark and not like her at all, but once I started listening it to it more, I realized how cool the cd is, and trust me, it it COOL!! You kind of learn more about Avril in this cd, I think the title of her last cd and her song 'Freak Out' have something to do with eachother, but anyways. My favorite songs are 'Freak Out', 'Toguether', 'Who Knows', and 'How does it feel'. It's totally worth it, and I have to say, it's better than her first cd!

    Awsome ! Well done Avril!

    This cd is great. when i first bought it i was like oh my god this is so not worth the money! but once i got to listening to it the more i realized that this cd kicks a**! its so much better than 'Let Go' cos in 'Let Go' her voice starts to get really tireing and i could never listen to it for more than a coulple times. but 'Under My Skin' i can listen to over and over again and her voice doesnt get tireing like it did in 'Let Go' this cd is a must have! my favorite songs are "Together", "Forgotten", and "How does it feel" but all the songs on the cd are fantastic so go out and buy it today; you wont regret it. i know i didnt!!!

    Rocker Chicks Are Hot

    When this CD came out I had to go and buy it. All the lyrics are deep and emotional and at least one tells your story. She is one of the best singers in my generation not to mention how hot she is. My favorite song is "Freak Out". You have to buy this CD.
