album review: avril lavigne

The fourth studio album to come from Avril Lavigne, entitled Goodbye Lullaby, strips down past years' theatrics and focuses primarily on the emotional origin of the musical content. Because of Lavigne's need to express the personal journey she has undertaken since 2008's The Best Damn Thing, her musical growth is left overlooked as the acoustic-based instruments take a back seat to her powerful vocals. The title Goodbye Lullaby is definitely an accurate depiction of the album's tone both instrumentally and lyrically. Almost every song reveals a desperate attempt at holding on to something that is no longer in her life, and consequently describes the loneliness and forgone magic of losing relationship security. These seem to be obvious reflections of the personal losses that she has experienced within the last few years during her divorce to Sum 41's Deryck Whibley. With this knowledge, one is slightly more inclined to forgive the repetitive theme and mediocre lyrics within most tracks, and rather embrace the emotional honesty of a girl who so rarely lets down her guard.
