Album Haiku Review| No Doubt “Push and Shove”
Song’s I Can’t Take Off Repeat| “Push and Shove,” “Undone,” & “Dreaming The Same Dream.”
After a long wait,
Eleven years actually,
No Doubt has done it.
Some fans say they took a hiatus, others feared they were on a break for good, but eleven years after their last studio-released album No Doubt is back. The new album definitely falls into the pop genre, with multiple tracks filled with electric beats and digitized vocals. In their single “Push and Shove,” No Doubt collaborates with Busy Signal and Major Lazer in a pop, Reggie fusion and dancehall mixed track. “Dreaming The Same” has an 80’s inspired intro with an electronic synthesizer drumbeat and heavy muffled electric guitar. “Undone” is the most unique track on the album, with a sound similar to contemporary country music; the vocals in the song are clearer than the rest; it reminds me of The Wreckers. This album wasn’t my favorite but it isn’t a horrible album. I still prefer No Doubt’s older tunes.
