7. Control Room Live EP (2008)

“This is an official recording of the semi-acoustic set at the Roxy Theater. She sings very well, and I think this type of performance suits more to her voice. I was hoping anew song would be in this cd but it’s just live stuff. It’s still great though.”

6. Head Above Water (2019)

“This is definitely something different from Avril Lavigne’s pop princess sound in a good way though. I will say though not everyone will enjoy this because it’s so different from what Avril usually puts out there. But this album was very well done. It’s mostly about different struggles from disease to bad relationships.”

5. Avril Lavigne (2013)

“Considering the quality and the variety of the songs on this album it may well be her best. Unfortunately, she may have alienated many of her fans by straying a little too far from their ingrained perception of her. ‘Bad Girl’ is a particularly shocking song and several others are laced with the f-word. Still, after listening to this album several times and getting accustomed to her new reaches i have grown to like this one. Some sales will undoubtedly be lost because of the explicit lyrics and perhaps some fans as well but this is the artist’s choice. She appears to be trying to reach a new audience but hopefully she hasn’t forgotten her fans that fell in love with her the way she was.”

4. Goodbye Lullaby (2011)

“Very good pop-rock album. The best 5 songs average is 87/100, the album gets 90/100. It’s a comparatively soft album by Avril. And songs sound a bit over-perfect with polyphonic vocals etc. However, I like Avril Lavigne. The best songs are “Push” and “Everybody hurts” both 90/100. Nearly every other song is 85/100. Notable is the hidden track “Alice” as slightly below-average.”

3. The Best Damn Thing (2007)

“Avril Lavigne shows the versatility and a wide vocal range and talent in this album. Perfect for most teenage girls (“Girlfriend,” “The Best Damn Thing,” “One of those girls,” “I can do better”), some preteens (“Hot,” “When you’re gone,” “Runaway,” “Contagious”) and some young adults (“Innocence” and “Keep Holding on” Many of these songs are appropriate for other audiences.”

2. Under My Skin (2004)

“Despite its cheesy lyrics, I still enjoy it overall. It’s darker, angrier, and less produced than Let Go. It also feels like Avril had more creative control this time around. “Take Me Away”, “Together”, “My Happy Ending”, “Nobody’s Home”, and “Forgotten” are still among my favorite A.L. songs.”

1. Let Go (2002)

“This is actually my favorite album. Complicated is my favorite song and I honestly feel this album really captured the teenage sentiment at the time. I also really love the light guitar carried throughout most of the album and it’s a nice contrast to some of the heavier tracks.”
