No Doubt – Push and Shove

For No Doubt musically it seems as if nothing has changed. Despite an over a decade gap between Push and Shove and their last studio album not much has changed for them in regards to the type of music they record. It is still everything 80s pop and ska for them. No hint of newer trends. You might read this and take it as a criticism but nothing could be further from the truth. No Doubt is a band that is confident in the music they make and don’t jump from one trend to another. You will find dancehall galore amidst the eleven tracks. If you have heard the two lead singles “Push and Shove” and “Settle Down” then you might be surprised or disappointed with the rest of the album as many of the remaining songs are of the slower variety. Unlike their previous albums this one takes a few more listens before you begin to appreciate the songs. They are still hip but with a nice pinch of maturity to go along with it.
