A weepy guitar solo on "Things I'll never say" or something decent from the bassist (Mark) on "losing my grip" and you've got some killer songs. It's funny how Avril Lavigne's early releases sounded exactly like those of another then up-and-coming teen star, Amy Studt, yet while the shyer, yet more seductively-vocalled Studt (who wrote her own songs, unlike Avril, as correctly pointed out by Dolores) has since disappeared into obscurity, Avril Lavigne is still hailed as an artist to be reckoned with.Being a guitarist and Bassist myself, I spend quite some time with Let Go and Under My Skin, playing different solos to her songs. Could perhaps have something to do with Avril being more inviting in the looks department?This song obviously wasn't written by herself; most artists don't even write there own music. She has a good voice; most mainstream music does get 'jazzed up' Reguardless if she wrote the tune; or produced it; I found this song 'refreshingly mature' from a juvenile's stand point. This means she knows absolutely nothing about punk rock and strippes her of any credit as a punk rocker. her last few singles have had the stupidest lyrics i've ever heard! Johny Ramone must be rolling in his dear Maynard, is there no justice?
Avril is difrent but all in all she is the same as all of the other teen queens although i respect her for not being a slut.
she wears her own cloths has her own boobs and doesnt realy care what others think.
It is definetly a sad example of how the record industries create and manufacture fame, popularity, and other factors that make record sales soar for no talent acts, all which have nothing to do with the real music.
Avril has the most calculated image of any recent bubblegum pop "artist"...it's hard to blame Avril herself, after all..seems just like a simple, absent minded (no offense intended), semi-cute teenage girl, I blame the men in the suits for using this girl's simple mind as an advertising vessel, alot of people can smell this sort of business disguised as music stuff from miles away...
You say that she seems immature because of her sudden stardom, but did any other instant hit become less mature as the spotlight hit them? I wouldn't say Avril is A material, but she seems to me, like a building with girders and no panels.
Her music is structurally beautiful, because you could add almost anything to make anyone in the alternative genre enjoy it.
uh no its not ordinary or boring its a good song about how people cant figure out how 2 just b themselves like this one guy he was really nice and i used 2 like him but then we got 2 midddle school and b4 middle school strted this guy and my friend were going out and then rite after we started middle school he cheated on my friend and then 2 days later dumped both of the girls and asked out my other friend and all 3 of us used 2 b friends but then he messed up our friendship cuz he wanted 2 b cool in middle scholl by going out with half of the 6 grade in 2 months,. I watched AMY STUDT's music video MISFIT and REALLY liked it.
then when i got around her, just me and her, no one else, she was her old self again.
although she doesnt like it when her fans dress like her in one of her interviews se said she wished ppl would stop dressing like her. I saw her in concert and I think she has a fresh voice, great meaning to her songs, and great songwriting ability.
