The fascinating thing about Gwen Stefanis record is not how different it sounds from No Doubt, but how similar it sounds to the producers that she works with and how their collaborations usually fall flat because of the rehashing of tired ideas and plodding predictability of her arrangements.
CarmenMDec 21, 2004I think Gwen is fabulous, beautiful, and fun!! She is a creative and original artist I think she did a wonderful job!

Overall, a little more intriguing than it is irritating, but props for some big originality.… Expand
