Sixteen year-old Canadian rocker Skye Sweetnam has released her debut album, Noise From the Basement. She mixes rock and pop-punk to create a high energy album. Read Kidzworld's review to find out if you should add this CD to your collection.

The Skye's the Limit

Noise From the Basement is exactly what it sounds like. It's an album of spunky, punky songs that Skye co-wrote with her friend in the basement of his parents' place. Her first single, Billy S., was featured on the soundtrack of the movie How to Deal starring Mandy Moore. This energetic song about skipping school made huge waves in Canada and the US. It's one of the better songs on this album, along with Tangled Up in Me, Number One and Unpredictable.

The Next Avril?

Skye is often compared to fellow Canadian rocker Avril Lavigne - both are petite, guitar-playing brunettes who spout angry, rebellious lyrics! In Hypocrite, Skye defiantly sings that no one, including her music label, will change her style, and that she's going to be herself no matter what. The tracks I Don't Really Like You and I Don't Care showcase Skye's indifferent attitude. However, Skye isn't quite as edgy as Avril. Her music has a bubblier beat that will get you off your seats and dancing around your room!

Bottom Line

Skye Sweetnam proves that she's not as sweet as her name. She can rock out tough tunes that'll definitely get your head bangin'! While this album is good, its not great - but expect her next album to be a hit.
