No Doubt - Push and Shove
Today i thought i would talk about the new No Doubt album, Push and Shove.
I have been a fan of No Doubt since their ska days....man i miss those dayz.
Tragic Kingdom will always have that special place in my heart....i almost wore out my tape...yes tape! I had Tragic Kingdom on cassette tape (sad my kids will never fully understand what that means).

Moving on, Push and Shove, for lack of a better description, is POP. No big surprise seeing as though the last few albums, including solo work, have been rather pop-y. This album is the lady gaga, madonna, katy perry kinda pop. *sigh.
That being said, i still like the album. Yes it's different, far from the ska style i long to hear from them again, but a fun album nonetheless. If you are looking for a good album to bop along to while running/working out, driving, etc this is it. It's very upbeat and has a constant tempo throughout the album (important if you run to it). It definately makes you want to move your body....very dance-y. I still love her voice and the band. Everytime i hear they are coming out with something new i get my hopes up for a old skool ska roots type of album....and then get let down...pop. I'll take it but i may not be happy about it.
If you aren't sure (no doubt my review put a seed of doubt in your head) give it a test-drive on iTunes. The deluxe edition was around $14 with a extra mixes of "Settle Down" and acoustic versions. Let me know what you think.
