5.0 out of 5 stars No Doubt have done the imposible...over a decade absent and returned with their best work to date!, 26 Sep 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Push And Shove (Deluxe Edition) (Audio CD)
11 years have passed since the golden nugget that was Rock Steady which saw the band expand horizons into new territories from their Ska brand....it was a monumental piece that encouraged band members to branch out with their own solo ventures!

Stefani in particular made a name for herself in fashion and of course struck her own gold with two successful solo albums, in particular LAMB which in itself is a practical masterstroke in Retro Pop. After 4 years of teasing a comeback....No Doubt are HERE.

Push & Shove is a showcase of just what they can do and what they are best at...their strengths and pulled together by producer Mark "Spike" Stent (Madonna, U2, Bjork, Massive Attack, Depeche Mode and Stefani collaborator) like the Electronic magician he is....really ensuring the band utilises their signature New Wave/Ska sound and brings it to a contemporary world...with assistance from Diplo and Major Lazer! They bring Industrial into their universe.

The resulting album is a very multi-layered cake...the first half of the album really does showcase a very experimental side utilising world beats and rhythms and old skool tempos echoing back to their Ska roots and Retro Pop styles that is so refreshing in todays watered down mainstream musical climate. The second half displays a more revisiting nature of old skool Rock vibes and alternative pop....some songs are very dreamlike in their approach and others touch on a melancholic and deeper level.

Overall it offers an assault on the senses as an album, it is an album to be played loud to make you feel good and dance away your troubles bringing that nostalgiac feeling of the 90s and the ability to push forward....well push AND shove ;).

Overall it is close to perfect and in my opinion their best collection of songs to date. Welcome back No Doubt! You have been missed.
