After buying L.A.M.B Gwens first solo album without No Doubt i have to say i wasnt overly impressed.Their was a few good songs but it wasnt concistent enough.So before bying The Sweet Escape i wasnt expecting very much..but i was wrong.At First i didnt like it at all.But after giving it a few listens it has realy grown on me.

1)Wind it up -When i first heard this song i said it was utter rubbish.But after a few listens it kinda gets locked in your head.its actually pretty good 4/5

2)The Sweet Escape -This is a very nice song.its one of the albums highlights.Akons bit is very small but it makes the song in my opinion.Very good 4/5

3)Orange County Girl - This is one of my faves on the album.Catchy and has a cool vibe to it.She sings about being a typical girl from OC and living in the "extraordinary world"Another great song 5/5

4)Early Winter - This is a very good balad from Gwen.Its nice and easy to listen to.Quite catchy and relaxing 4/5

5)Now that you got it - Im not that impressed with this song.Its Ok but its very repetative and annoying and her rapping isnt beleivable either.One of the weaker tracks on the album 2/5

6)4 in the morning - This is a nice track.A Bit like Cool from L.A.M.B.Easy to listen and hymn to.Good 4/5

7)Yummy - another raping song from Gwen.But its actually quite good.its very catchy and it stays in your head.Pharrels part is crap though 4/5

8)Florescent - This is just O.K.It has an 80's disco Vibe to it.But its grand. 3/5

9)Breaking up- this is a very good track.Very catchy and very cleverly written too.Its a high light from the album.I love the production done in the song 5/5

10)Dont get it twisted - very good again.its catchy and stays in your head.

Being overly excited when Gwen's new album landed in my hands, I was slightly thrown off and surprised that I did not take to it immediately. As I am truly a fan of L.A.M.B., liking every song on the album, I expected the same of The Sweet Escape. Skipping through her latest offering, I only heard a few songs which I thought to be really good...but that was 1 month ago...now that I have taken the time to listen to and appreciate The Sweet Escape...IT'S A GREAT ALBUM - GO GWEN!!!!...(with 1 or 2 exceptions though)

1.Wind It Up: 6/10 Hardly the best track on the album...if you want to enjoy this track, be sure to check out the Harajuku Lovers Live DVD where she performs the track live, with less yodel!

2.The Sweet Escape: 9/10 An amazingly catchy tune...great fun, great sound.

3.Orange County Girl: 8/10 Another track already performed on Harajuku Lovers Live, a meaningful walk down her memory lane with great lyrics and cool smooth sound.

4.Early Winter: 10/10 Some say it's out of place, I say it just adds to the great variety on the album. An excellent track, beautiful melody.

5.Now That You Got It: 9/10 Another fav from the album. Kickin beat...say no more.

6.4 in the Morning: 10/10 Aaargh...too many favs to comment. Yet another smooth track from Gwen.

7.Yummy: ?/10 This one's still growing on me, but it definately has that something about it...very original.

8.Fluorescent: 7/10 A wicked track with good chart potential. Bring it on as a single!

9.Breakin Up: 6/10 A bit of a harsh track compared to the rest, good production values.

10.Don't Get it Twisted: 6/10 A bit of a weird one compared to the rest. Not a fav at all...

11.U Started It: 8/10 Definately one of the better tracks.

I am in disbelief that i didn't purchase The Sweet Escape when it was released in 2007! It's a solid follow up to Love.Angel.Music.Baby. which,let's face it, was one of the most brilliantly made pop albums of the last decade and showed the world how a solo career can be built and take the world by storm! by the time The Sweet Escape album was released L.A.M.B had sold over 7 million copies across the globe(currently it has sold over 8 million as of 2010!) so to follow up the blockbuster album was going to be tough by any means.
As it was initially Gwen just wanted to persue L.A.M.B as a solo project but due to some material left over from the recording sessions she ensured we got a guaranteed follow up in this sequel combining majority of tunes recorded in 2004 and some during her Harajuku Lovers Tour in 2005 along with some new tunes recorded in 2006 and it all combines here for something quite remarkable.
Reading some of the negative reviews for this album is just plain ridiculous, sure in some ways it wasn't going to match L.A.M.B. but in many ways this album is far superior to many releases of 2006 and 2007 i mean we're talking Black Eyed Pea's(Monkey Business),Justin Timberlake(Future Sex/Love Sounds),Nelly Furtado(Loose),Beyonce(B'Day)releasing albums and material during this period so it was going to be hard competition but in MANY ways it plays this album is far superior to their efforts and plays much more fun and far more nicely effortly produced and provides a frenetic energy those previous releases lack! However we also had GIANT releases by Madonna,Gorillaz,Christina Aguilera,Britney Spears etc. during this period also which ensured that there was loads of competition for this album and sadly it missed reaching the top 10!
