Avril Lavigne | Love Sux Review
By Griff Stevens
Avril Lavigne is a pop-punk Canadian singer and songwriter that is a multi-platinum vocalist, songwriter, designer, and philanthropist. The eight-time GRAMMY Award-nominated Lavigne is now releasing her new album. Love Sux, via Travis Barker’s DTA Records. The album is Lavigne’s seventh studio album and features twelve tracks, and is the first new music to be released from the star since 2019. The album also features Lavigne collaborating with Machine Gun Kelly, Blackbear, and Mark Hoppus of Blink-182. Throughout the album, Lavigne sings of break-up and heartbreak but still keeps a positive message of self-worth and standing up for yourself.
Lavigne presents various styles on the album, from electro dance to hyper-pop and punk rock. “Love It When You Hate Me” falls into the later with its driving chorus after an electro-pop verse. The driving beat and steady guitars frame Lavigne’s vocals beautifully. In addition, Blackbear makes a guest appearance with rhythmic speak-singing with auto-tune, which is good if you are into that sort of thing. Either way, the chorus saves the day and brings us the Lavigne we all know and love from her earlier records. Also, be sure to listen to “Bite Me,” which has the same vibe and was the lead single from the album.
“Bois Lie” features Machine Gun Kelly and is the standout track from the ten. Lavigne’s vocals sound strong with unrelenting energy as she belts the chorus with passion and sings the verses with power and attitude. The thirty-seven-year-old Lavigne can still tap into the high school mentality and colloquialisms as the lyrics possess that type of energy and drama. This also shows that we all want to have some fun, regardless of age.
Love Sux is a successful outing for Lavigne as she takes from her past sounds and adds a fresh perspective. The upbeat nature of the music is a welcome highlight, and her singing is as strong as ever. She emerges stronger on Love Sux, backed by exciting guest artists and a robust set of co-song writers and the production magic of John Feldmann, Travis Barker, and Mod Sun. Lavigne is tapped into a creative source that yields her best work in years. Don’t miss this one!
Release Date: February 25, 2022

I just wanted to say that I just got done listening to Avril Lavigne’s latest album, “Love Sux” last night and in my personal opinion, I think that the album sucks just like all of her previous albums does. Avril said that the album is a pop-punk album, but it sounds a lot like a pop album just like all of her previous albums do. All of the lyrics on the album are all about boy bashing, and it seems like that is all she ever sings and writes about like she is like a rebellious teenager. She needs to stop acting and dressing like a rebellious teenager because she isn’t a rebellious teenager anymore like she was when she came into the music industry back in the year 2002 (that was the year that I graduated from high school). She is now a grown woman who will be 38 years-old this year on September 27th., and she needs to start acting and dressing like it. She can never be a “pop-punk” music artist who sings and writes pop-punk music no matter what all of her fans out there says or thinks because her music doesn’t sound like pop-punk at all. She is still a pop music artist who sings and writes pop music. She doesn’t have any creativity when it comes to her own music at all. End of story.
The only songs that I like off of Avril Lavigne’s, “Love Sux” album are, “Avalanche” and “Dare To Love Me”.
Avril Lavigne’s, “Love Sux” album has debuted at number 9 and has sold 300,000 units, and has sold 19,000 physical copies on the first week it was released.
I just wanted to say that Avril Lavigne can never be a punk/rocker who sings and writes punk/rock music no matter what anybody out there says or thinks because she is a pop music artist who sings and writes pop music, and always have been ever since she came into the music industry back in 2002. Her, “Love Sux” album is one of the most crappiest pop albums of 2022 because all of the lyrics to all of the songs on the album are all about boy bashing, and it is getting really old. Avril is already a 38 year-old woman, and she needs to record an adult contemporary album so that people can hear how mature she really sounds when it comes to singing instead cursing in her songs because nobody wants to hear her curse over and over when it comes to her recording an album. She is also one of the most biggest jokes when when it comes to skateboarding because she doesn’t know how to skateboard. End of story.
I just wanted to say that Avril Lavigne doesn’t know what she is talking about when it comes to her own music genre because she claims that her music is rock when it sounds a lot more like pop. Her latest album, “Love Sux” has debuted at number 9 and it has sold 300,000 units, and has sold 19,000 physical copies on the first week it was released over here in the United States. She described the album as pop-punk, but it sounds a lot more like pop just like all of her previous albums does. All of the songs on the album are all about boy bashing, and it’s so annoying because it seems like that is all she can sing and write about. I didn’t buy the album because I’m not a fan of her music at all, and I never was to begin with. She can sing and write country music if she wanted to but she prefers singing and writing pop music. End of story.
I’m not impressed with Avril Lavigne’s, “Love Sux” album at all because all of the lyrics to all of the songs on the album are all about teen angst, and that is the kind of album that teenagers would listen to. I agree that Avril is already a 38 year-old woman, and she needs to sing and write adult contemporary so that people can hear how mature her voice really sounds when she sings because it really sounds annoying when she curses in her songs. I don’t care if the album has debuted at number 9, sold 3000,000 units, and has sold 19,000 physical copies on its first week when it was released over here in the United States at all because in my personal opinion, I think that it is one of the worst pop albums in 2022. She was supposed to sing and write country music when she came into the music industry back in 2002, but she decided to sing and write pop music instead.
