“Hey, those days are long gone, and when I hear this song it takes me back.”

A line from the song “17” from Avril Lavigne’s self-titled 5th album, which hit UK shelves on November 4th, 2013: “She was putting together the songs on her 2002 debut, Let Go,” and the 29-year-old looks back on those reflectively days of her life, which is her diary in a song with the pop-rock track “17.”

Like the “Avril Lavigne” singles that precede it, “17” is stunningly arranged, swirling a steady beat, long acoustic strums, and yelping vocals that refract the mischievous glow of you.

As many of you already know, I am a huge fan of Avril Lavigne. Her new self-titled album has caught my attention, and I couldn’t be more excited to share my review with all of you.

This album truly encapsulates the essence of Avril’s artistic vision, as she fearlessly creates the music she wants to play, regardless of how it will be received. She stays true to her signature pop-rock sound, taking us back to her skater-inspired world. Her personality shines through in every guitar riff, from the strangely psychedelic “Hello Kitty” to the infectious melodies of “You Ain’t Seen Nothing Yet.”

The album opens with two strong singles, “Rock and Roll” and “Here’s to Never Growing Up.” These tracks carry the same energetic vibe as her popular 2007 album,The Best Damn Thing,” with irresistibly catchy pop hooks that serve as a soundtrack for teens and guilty pleasures for everyone.

One standout song is “17,” an upbeat and infectious tune that nostalgically looks back at the time when Avril was your girl, reminding us of the Avril we fell in love with.

In this album, Avril reclaims her raw and powerful voice, drawing in the angst-ridden teenage listeners who may have felt alienated by her venture into pop music with her third album. She brings back the slightly grittier aspect of her earlier music, showcasing her artistic growth and experimentation.
