First Quality Seconds,
This review is from: Everything in Time - B-sides, Rarities & Remixes (Audio CD)
It is to No Doubt's credit that an album of their "B" sides, combined with material that didn't make previous albums, could be so good. This is clearly a group overflowing with talent, originality and creativity.
This album rivals "Rock Steady" and "Tragic Kingdom" in intensity, with rocking reggae and ska beats, guaranteed to have you tapping and nodding along from the first listen. Not recommended for your CD drive if you work in a formal office setting, because even with headphones, it'll be painfully obvious what you're up to.
Stand out songs include "New Friend", "Oi to the World", "Full Circle", and the slower "Cellophane Boy", "I Throw My Toys Around" (with Elvis Costello)and the classic title song.
No Doubt's "B" is better than many other's bytes or barks.
