Overview

The debut disc from spunky teen songwriting prodigy Avril Lavigne suggests both the confessional style of Alanis Morissette and the honey-sweet vocalizing of Jewel, distancing this 17-year-old from her bubblegum contemporaries. On the autobiographical Let Go, the self-confident Lavigne lays herself bare, spinning personal tales with her impressive lyricism and guitar playing. The young Canadian stakes out her individuality on the infectious breakout single "Complicated" and traces her ride from homogenous suburban roots (the breezy "My World") through the less glamorous byways leading to fame (the acoustic guitar-driven "Mobile"). Throughout, the self-described skate punk deals out hooks like playing cards and ups the ante with subtle bleeps, loops, and keyboard swooshes, which intensify big guitar songs such as the power-pop punk "Sk8er Boi," the Dido-flavored "Losing Grip," and the sweeping angst-fest "Unwanted." Equally moving is Lavigne's subtler material, including the lush "Tomorrow," with its hint of uncertainty, and the trip-hoppy "Naked," a like-minded tale of vulnerability. Bursting with talent and joie de vivre, Avril Lavigne proudly announces herself as the new kid in town -- one that's sure to make a lot of friends real quick.
