Not sure what?s happening with me on this one, but it seems like the more I listen to it, the better Under My Skin gets. Under My Skin stated simply is one of Avril Lavigne?s best CDs to date.
I wish it weren?t the case but, it?s not everyday that I get a CD from an artist that I can just pop in and comfortably listen to from beginning to end. There is usually a song or two that I just can?t force myself to get through. Not at all the case with Under My Skin. Every track is enjoyable and was pretty easy for me to listen to from start to finish.
Pop music fans will recognize some of the well known contributors on the project including Patrick Warren and Butch Walker plus a few other notables as well.
If you’re even mildly into Pop music you’ll enjoy this album. Overall Under My Skin is an a great release. I give it my double thumbs up. You will not be disappointed with one single track.
While the entire album is outstanding the truly standout tunes are track 3 – Don?t Tell Me, track 6 – My Happy Ending, and track 12 – Slipped Away.
My Bonus Pick, and the one that got Sore [ in “Stuck On REpeat”] is track 1 – Take Me Away. Outstanding!
