Review: Avril Lavigne – Goodbye Lullaby

Avril Lavigne decided to take a different musical direction with the Goodbye Lullaby album. Goodbye Lullaby showcased the more sensitive side of Avril. The whole album uses a balanced portion of pop rock and is girly and cheery as The Best Damn Thing was. Avril Lavigne marked herself again as an international pop sensation.

Black Star is one of those songs that should have been a full song but wasn’t. Which is truly a bummer. The ethereal song has a piano-driven chorus over high quality crystal clear production.

Black Star, black star
Forever you will be
A shining star, shining star
Be whatever you can be
A rock star, rock star
You will always be
A black star, black star, black star
Black star, black star, black star

What The Hell showcases the more popish and sassy side of Avril Lavigne. The song lightens up the mood for her album. The acoustic guitars are stripped down with pianos to an upbeat tempo. She’s tired of being a good girl and following the rules all the time. She’s not afraid of being reckless or the consequences that come along with being reckless.

Her boyfriend say that she has been messing with his head because she was making out with his friend. Love hurts whether it’s right or wrong. Avril can’t stop because she is having too much fun. But honestly Avril just needs to be a little crazy. Her boyfriend is on his knees begging Avril to stay with him. He is begging her, “Please, stay with me.”

Avril has been good all her life, but now she’s thinking, “What the hell?” All Avril wants is to mess around, be sassy, and reckless. She really couldn’t care less about his feelings or your feelings. You can’t save her.

So what if she go out on a million dates? Her boyfriend never calls or listens to her anyway. She’d rather rage than sit around and wait all day for his ass. Don’t get her wrong. Avril just needs some time to play because she has been good all her life. Avril could care less if you hate or love her.

Her boyfriend say that she has been messing with his head. She tells him, “Boy, I like messing in your bed.” She clearly just wants to fool around and have sex with him.

She also tells him, “I am messing with your head when I’m messing with you in bed.”

Avril shows her gratitude and expresses thanks on Smile. She expresses gratitude for that special person in her life.

You know that Avril is a crazy bitch. She does what she wants when she feels like it. All Avril wants to do is loose control. But you don’t really give a shit. Avril is fuckin’ crazy rock ‘n’ roll. He stole Avril’s heart and he’s the one to blame. And that’s why Avril has a smile. It’s been a while since everyday and everything has felt this right for. And now he turns it all around. And suddenly he is all Avril needs.

Last night Avril blacked out. She asks him what he put in her drink. “What did you put in my drink?” She remembers makin’ out and then waking up with a new tattoo. His name was on her and her name was on him. She would do it all over again.

Avril Lavigne explains what the true definition of love is on her song Push.

Avril has been seeing too much of this man she has had her eyes on lately. This man is starting to get on her nerves. This is exactly what happened last time.

And it’s not what they deserve. It’s a waste of her time lately. If it’s really meant to be then he can find a way to see. Maybe he should just shut up even when it gets tough because this is love. This is the kind of love Avril is looking for. And you know when push comes to shove. It’s gonna take the both of them. Baby, this is love.

It’s really great to be with him. This is how Avril could spend her life. But Avril is capable of taking care of herself. She tells him, “So if you fuck this up, then go take a hike. It’s a waste of my time. I’m not going out to search.” Avril is not not going out to search for any other kind of love that’s out there.

Wish You Were Here showcased the more vulnerable side of Avril. Even though Avril has this tough girl image, she also has a soft vulnerable side. The song is primarily driven by pianos and guitars with high quality production provided by modern technology.

Avril can be tough and strong. But with him, it’s not like that at all. Avril has a vulnerable side too. A vulnerable side that she only shows nad displays when she is with him. There’s a girl that gives a shit. Behind this wall. You just walk through it.

Avril remembers all those crazy things he said and all those crazy things they did together. They didn’t think about it consequently or how what were doing would affect their future. They just went with whatever they were doing. He left all those crazy things he said runnin’ through her head. He’s always there. He’s everywhere. But right now Avril wishes he was here. Avril loves the way he is. It’s who she is. She doesn’t have to try hard. The truth is that Avril really misses all those crazy things he said.

The bridge hits hard right in the feels.

No, I don’t wanna let go
I just wanna let you know
That I never wanna let go, let go, oh, oh
No, I don’t wanna let go
I just wanna let you know
That I never wanna let go, let go, let go, let go, let go
Let go, let go, let go, let go
Let go, let go, let go, let go

I rate this album 4/5****!
