    Gwen Stefani pogos as hard as she ever did in her Anaheim-strip-mall ska days. But she's also just as neurotic, which adds depth to her love songs. [28 Sep 2012, p.72]

    Push and Shove is a celebration of No Doubt's love for all things 80s pop and the Southern California ska scene.

    It's no Tragic Kingdom, but definitely a worthy comeback for No Doubt. It continues the band's perfect mix of rock, pop, ska and 80's influences as well as keeping with current trends. The title track is awesome and fuses so many old and new genres amazingly! It makes the dancehall songs of Rock Steady look tired. My biggest issue with the album is that the best songs (Settle Down, Looking Hot, Push and Shove) seem to stand too high above the others, if there were even more amazing songs it could be on par with Tragic Kingdom. Apart from that, old fans will enjoy it and it should pick up a few new fans along the way. Full Review »

    "To go forward sometimes you have to go back" seems to always have been the band's motto. For all those too uptight to join in the party there are countless emo bands out there for you to get your lyric fix from. But for the rest of us we gonna party like it's 1984. The band's most perfected album and it's purely pop. Full Review »

    This album was just pure garbage. It's not No Doubt anymore.. they hav eturned into some stupid and horrible mix of lame pop/reggae/ (wannabe) ska music. Bad comback after all this time on Hiatus... Full Review »
