Default No Doubt - Return of Saturn (2000) Retail CD

Music > Albums > No Doubt - Return of Saturn (2000) Retail CD
added on April 27, 2007, at 14:12 by allcdcovers

After No Doubt sold more than 10 million copies of Tragic Kingdom, riding that wave of success without toppling over must have been a daunting mission. No sweat for No Doubt. The band had toiled as unknowns with a loyal local following for a decade before that album's release, and during that time the band members were learning how to be better songwriters and musicians. The follow-up, Return Of Saturn, glides along that continuum of songcraft perfection. The band presents a cleaner, less apologist representation of their influences. They pull off some of the more difficult manoeuvres of pure reggae, ground-pounding ska, and Cars-esque New Wave. Gwen Stefani belts a powerful pout, her Mae West-meets- Siouxsie Sioux vocal bravado is the bungee cord that springs in between the band's retro tendencies and SoCal pop-punk attitude. Songs such as "Bathwater" and "Ex-Girlfriend" reveal the singer's vulnerability to being hurt or dumped on, and the band's sense of humour and exploration (albeit firmly controlled) matches the songs' sentiments. This group is growing out and tightening up, and while the rest of the ska-punk surfer-dude bands do nothing more than repeat history, No Doubt is creating it. --Beth Massa
