EDITORS’ NOTES

Avril Lavigne has no intention of growing older gracefully. The mallrat punk rocker with the perfect productions and the sassy suspicions of the coolest misfit in the skate park continues to find ways to address her audience’s hopes, dreams and frustrations. The enviable radio hooks are right there on “What the Hell” and they chirp through the handclap-happy “Stop Standing There” and the mid-tempos “I Love You” and “Everybody Hurts,” where she turns reflective. By the time Lavigne makes it to her completely self-penned tunes, “4Real,” “Remember When” and “Goodbye,” the album’s genuine soft-rockers, it feels about time. No one can possibly have that much energy without turning back time. Can they? The Deluxe Edition of the album includes acoustic versions of “What the Hell,” “Push” and “Wish You Were Here,” her cover of Joan Jett’s “Bad Reputation,” a remix of “What the Hell” and a video of the making of the album. She may be getting older, but no one’s told her yet.
