Album Description
Available in: Country Icon Country Icon
‎Under My Skin es el segundo álbum de estudio de la cantante y compositora canadiense Avril Lavigne, lanzado en todo el mundo el 25 de mayo de 2004; Fue su último álbum con Arista Records. Under My Skin debutó en el número uno en la lista de álbumes Billboard 200 y, según la revista Billboard, ocupó el puesto número 149 en la lista de álbumes más vendidos de la década de 2000. Ha vendido más de 10 millones de copias en todo el mundo, tres millones de las cuales se vendieron en los Estados Unidos, ocupando el álbum # 148 en el Billboard 200 Decade End Chart. ‎
‎ ‎
‎Al no tener planes de trabajar con productores o escritores profesionales, Lavigne escribió gran parte del álbum con la cantante y compositora canadiense Chantal Kreviazuk, con quien había desarrollado una amistad en el verano de 2003. Kreviazuk, cuya banda de marido Raine Maida, Our Lady Peace, abrió para el concierto de Lavigne en Europa, se presentó en una fiesta posterior a los conciertos benéficos del SARS celebrados en Toronto en junio de 2003. ‎
‎ ‎
‎Al día siguiente, Lavigne y Kreviazuk almorzaron juntos, durante el cual Lavigne compartió cómo quería que fuera el desarrollo del álbum. Escribieron canciones durante casi tres semanas en el almacén de Maida en Toronto. Kreviazuk invitó a Lavigne a continuar trabajando en una casa de Malibú, California, que compartía con Maida, que contenía un estudio de grabación. Muchas de las canciones del álbum fueron grabadas en Malibú.‎

User Album Review
With her self-penned songs stamping a bovver-boot over the vagaries of adolescent angst, this tomboy of teen rock kicked into the chart two years ago, providing a refreshing alternative to the bubbling broth of confectionary pop.
So, has the 19-year-old matured from the punk pixie doing time in the skate park and finding things just oh-so complicated? Well, the stock loaded guitar riffs, ambling piano melodies and brooding vocals suggest that Avril is desperate to ditch the mantle of youth and be taken seriously as an artiste.
But this is where she goes wrong. We enter the world of dating with Avril and what a gloomy, dire place it is. Too many tracks, such as 'Take Me Away' and 'My Happy Ending', pivot on the pain and despair of relationships going off the boil and, despite the stadium-rousing choruses, her whiney vocals and trite lyrics imply that madam is merely having a strop rather than wearing the hair shirt of Alanis Morrissette-style suffering.
'Don't Tell Me' turns all coy with the finger-wagging warning to her boyfriend, "Did I not tell you that I'm not like that girl, the one who gives it all away". So it's with relief that 'He Wasn't' leaps out with all the plucky cheek of old-skool Avril. A punchy chorus harks back to the kohl-lined rock chicks of yesteryear but possesses enough contemporary verve to set it up alongside the best of Busted. Similarly, the final track on the album, 'I Always Get What I Want' delivers a healthy slap in the face of authority, smacks heavily of Transvision Vamp and suggests that Avril isn't quite ready to grow up.
The combined writing efforts of band mate, Evan Taubenfeld, ex Evanescence guitarist Ben Moody and the watchful eye of Linkin Park producer Da Gilmore infuse the album with a nu-metal edge that might levitate this release from the ashes of forgettable rock but until Avril learns to take herself a little less seriously and manage a glimmer of a smile, she will continue to sound like a petulant teenager having a strop.
