Jodie Morris of Dotmusic.com reviewed Avril Lavigne’s latest single ‘Losing Grip’, giving it a ranking of 9 out of 10. Morris writes, “She might only be young, and she might only be tiny, but in her relatively brief career, Lavigne has managed to strike a poignant chord with thousands of young music fans – and if she keeps belting out blinders like this, there really could be no limit to her potential.” The entire review at uk.launch.yahoo.com has since been removed.
