'Push And Shove' is No Doubt's sixth studio album and their first since 2001's 'Rock Steady'. It is released today. This is a great day for us fans as it has been far too long since No Doubt has served us up their signature sound.
What concerns me is this little ditty, which will be the second single for the album. Gwen (who I adore) can do some really odd things with her voice. One of these quirks is an odd nasal Betty Boop thing- she’s doing it in this tune and I am not amused.
In some ways “Looking Hot”, reminds me of stadium Madonna- again- not amused. I realize of course with 11 years on a shelf comes some aging process but how about more ska less club? This isn’t ‘duh club’ clubbing music, on the contrary this is haggard Madonna wanting to pulse it for the queens. Is that what’s up for No Doubt?
A grand dame thump set accompanied by the ‘boop-tone’ was not what I was expecting.
In an interview with MTV, Gwen claimed she and her band mates had no idea what they were doing in the studio or how they wanted the LP to sound.
Speaking about the process behind the album, she said: "We don't know what we're doing. Everything's basically a series of accidents and mistakes." After hearing this tune, I tend to think she was right. Im going pass on this tune but be optimistic for the album as I set it on heavy rotation. I’ll get back to you on that one.
