A Review by:
The Dude on the Right

I’m a fan of teen girl pop music. There. I said it. I’m secure enough in my manhood to say it. I’m a fan of teen girl pop music. There. I said it again. It should be of no surprise, then, that Avril Lavigne’s “Let Go” is part of my music library, and that, yes, I can actually listen to it again and again and no the words to the songs. I still remember the first time I popped the CD in my player, already familiar with “Complicated,” but then enjoying the “Sk8er Boi” story, the “I’m With You” ballad, and almost being shocked and/or astounded at the innuendo of the lines “I’d say I want to blow you (pause) away” and “I want to see you go down (pause) on one knee” during “Things I’ll never say.” I learned she grew up in a 5000 population town called Napanee in the poppy “My World” and am pretty sure that if I were 18 I wouldn’t choose weed over her like in “Too Much to Ask.”

“Let Go” is one of those CD’s that if you are fan of teen girl pop music, well, you’d probably like it. For me it’s 95% on the Entertainment Ave! listenability scale.

That’s it for this quick review! I’m The Dude on the Right!! L8R!!!
