Product Description

Product Description

Love Angel Music Baby is Gwen Stefani’s debut away from her band, No Doubt. The album includes collaborations with the legendary Dr Dre, The Neptunes, Andre 3000 from Outkast, Dallas Austin & New Order. Includes the single "What You Waiting For?".

BBC Review

Love, Angel, Music, Baby is Gwen Stefani's first solo album and a glittering salute to her passions for fashion and 80s synth. A side project from Gwen's other role as the Blondie-esque singer in No Doubt, this greatalbum reinforces her international-pop-star status and coincides with an imminent silver screen debut as Jean Harlow in Martin Scorsese's Howard Hughes' biopic The Aviator.

OutKast's Andre 3000, Dr Dre, the Neptunes, and No Doubt band mate Tony Kanal number among the talented catalogue of collaborators who have helped Gwen realize this vision of Tokyo-tastic electro pop.

Explosive opener "What You Waiting For?" is a magnificent slab of electro funk with a kick ass attitude reminiscent of Goldfrapp's "Strict Machine". Produced by Nellee Hooper, it stands out as the best track on the album for the way it pits storming beats against enthusiastic lyrics like, 'Take a chance you stupid ho' and 'I can't wait to go back and do Japan!'

"Rich Girl", produced by the ubiquitous Dr Dre, is just as infectious and teams Gwen's vocals with groovy raps from gal pal Eve. The resulting tune is disco gold, impossibly girly and very easy to dance to. Gwen and Eve sing about the joys of shopping and Gwen dreams of one day acquiring a troupe of harajuku girls ("Love, Angel, Music and Baby") to help inspire and dress her. "Bubble Pop Electric", recorded with Johnny Vulture (Andre 3000's rock 'n' roll alter ego), uses skipping scatter gun beats as an imposing backdrop to Gwen's sugar-sweet vocals. It's an effective approach later repeated on "Long Way To Go", a soulful duet from Andre and Gwen about love and boundaries.

Love, Angel, Music, Baby marks Gwen's debut as a rival to the likes of Madonna and Kelis, and their influence is apparent. The cheeky upstart charm Madonna sported in the 80s is embraced to shrewd effect on "Serious",whilst "Rich Girl" is a bouncy foil to Kelis' "Milkshake". In all, this is a stunning and stylish effort that showcases Gwen's credentials as a bonafide pop goddess. --Lisa Haines

Gwen Stefani's solo album L.A.M.B. was expected to be a great hit, and so it is! Many of the top world producers have worked on it (Dr. Dre, Tony Canal, Andre 3000 etc.) and they have done a great job! If you are a No Doubt fan, you probably won't like this album. However, it's not Britney Spears neither, although all the tracks have been carefully planned. There are so many different musical influences on this album- for the fans of pop, there are songs like "What You Waiting For?", "Rich Girl", "Serious", "Danger Zone", etc. and fans of rock, techno and house will enjoy "Bubble Pop Electric" and "Long Way To Go". There are also some surprises (both good and bad) in form of funky songs like "Hollaback Girl", "Cool", and especially "Harajuku Girls". If you are into something fresh, what you waiting for? Buy this album!

I never expected to like Gwen Stefani's music - i didn't like "What you waiting for", although the Alice in Wonderland video was inspired. And that is what the majority of this album is - inspired, by many factors. Stefani deals with style ("Harajuku girls"), race ("Long Way to Go"), love ("The Real Thing", "Cool"), stereotypes ("Hollaback Girl", "Bubble Pop Electric"), and the rnb breakowns are a sort of cooling down. To be honest, it really works well. The fact that she resembles Madonna in some songs (e.g. "Serious") is deja vu in a good sense, because it's about time we had a female blonde star who knew what she was singing about.

I've always liked Gwen Stefani and here's my review of the album:
1) What You Waiting For? 5/5 A single we all know by her, it was a massive success and probably my favourite song by her. The 'tick-tocks' make it sound even better! Well done Gwen.
2) Rich Girl 4/5 not as good as the one before, but still quite good, a nice combination with Eve. A good, dance-to song.
3) Hollaback Girl 5/5 a great song with Gwen's distinctive vocals ringing thru. Another single, released 23rd May, it was a big success and another big success for Gwen.
4) Cool 5/5 one of my personal favourites, a beautiful ballad about Gwen's partner and how they turned into simple but good friends. The 4th single, it was released 29th August, and though it wasn't a massive success, it's still a lovely song.
5) Bubble Pop Electric 3.5/5 an interesting song about Gwen and her lover. A little odd, with dancing tunes and a bit of rapping.
6) Luxurious 4/5 the 5th and final single, out 5th December. Quite a cool song, the lyrics are very enjoyable and funny. Thumbs up!
7) Harajaku Girls 3/5 not a very well-made song, Gwen mentions 'Harajuku girls' all through the CD. Quite good, but very boring after a while.
8) Crash 3/5 an OK song that isn't bad or good.
9) The Real Thing 5/5 a song that I LOVE. Should've been a single, in my opinion.
10) Serious 3/5 not bad, not good, like 'Crash'.
11) Danger Zone 3.5/5 fairly good, Gwen's vocals are good on this one.
12) Long Way to Go 2/5 the weakest track on the CD, I don't like this song very much. A bad way to end the album.
13) Real Thing Remix 4/5 quite a good song, one bonus track.

For a No Doubt fan, this album is a bit of a shock. Whether it's a good or a bad shock, I don't really know...
For any No Doubt fans reading this, the nearest album I can equate 'Love Angel Music Baby' to is 'Rock Steady'. But imagine an album about a hundred times more hyperactive than 'Rock Steady'and you have Gwen's first (kind of) solo outing.
The album is undoubtably a grower. I've listened to it about 4 times through since getting it a couple of days ago and the tracks are only just about beginning to seep into my brain. Initially, I was slightly taken aback after being completely bombarded by Eighties style pop music. As I was only born in the mid 80's, this album was like nothing I'd ever heard before.Only now am I really beginning to differentiate between the tracks...Stand out songs include the first single 'What you Waiting For', 'Hollaback Girl' and my favourite, 'Bubble Pop Electric'.
This album is at its best during the faster, more exciteable songs. Gwen is lyrically and vocally confident, cool and sultry and that makes a real change from the majority of No Doubt albums where she is far more confessional and wears her heart on her sleeve. There is not a lot of that here.
Gwen Stefani has collaborated wisely on this album, Eve, The Neptunes and Andre 3000 amongst others are involved. Their involvement further distances 'Love Angel Music Baby' from anything Gwen did with No Doubt. The only disappointing song is 'A Long Way To Go' with Andre 3000. It's a song about inter-racial relationships which, however well-intentioned it may be,is slightly embarrassing and a bit boring. However, Andre 3000 did co-write 'Bubble Pop Electric', so I'll let him off...
The album is generally good and fun, it might just take No Doubt fans a little while to get used to it...

This album is really great, with no bad songs at all. The worst it gets is with 'A Long Way to Go', but when you get past the excruciatingly cliched first few lines, the song isn't actually too bad.
The best songs are 'What You Waiting For?', 'Hollaback Girl', 'Bubble Pop Electric', 'Crash' and 'Danger Zone', very closely followed by the likes of 'Rich Girl' and 'Serious'. The others are also very great.
This is definitely inspired by Madonna and other 80's pop, but being born during the 80's, I do not know who else specifically. However, this album is more like a greatest hits collection, and all songs have a different feel and style. An amazing album!
