Noise From The Basement (2004)

EW's GRADE
C-

Details Release Date: Sep 21, 2004; Lead Performance: Skye Sweetnam

You thought Avril was a fake punk? Wait until you hear her successor -- another photogenic, pro-voiced Canadian teen with far more homogenous faux-mosh-pit riffs and far more manufactured anger (her idea of rage is ''kicking the Coke machine''). And not even Lavigne would offer up such a clunky remake of Blondie's ''Heart of Glass.'' At best, Noise From the Basement has songs for Princess Diaries sequel soundtracks.
