Album Review: No Doubt: Push and Shove

No Doubt
Push and Show

First some background. Back in the late '90s and early '00s Gwen Stefani was everywhere.

But before Stefani was on her own, hell, even while she was on her own, she ska'd it up with her band who went on an extended hiatus, the kind of extended hiatus where let's face it the band broke up. A few years ago they started touring again. And here we are, their first studio album in years Push and Shove

While I wasn't a hyper fan of No Doubt. I always liked them. To this day when feeling down I put on "Don't Speak"

While its stuff was definitely stuck in the '90s I thought it aged well, kind of like Daria and Chasing Amy.

Listening to this album is a lot like coming across your best high school friend you haven't seen in a few years. They're different but still themselves.  This is No Doubt, but an older No Doubt. They've grown up, but still are the same fun band they were back in the day.  There are even songs on the album that discuss this. "Sparkle" is a song about change.

All that said the band still sound like themselves. They're still a ska band.If you were ever a fan of theirs check it out.
