Editorial Reviews

Product Description

In her own unique way, Gwen Stefani has managed to shift our culture since coming onto the scene as the lead singer of No Doubt. With years of defining style and 30 million in record sales under her belt, she will again turn heads with this debut record that is as fresh as it is retro and as progressive as it is feel-good familiar. With this project, she has enlisted some of the biggest names in music (Dr. Dre, Eve, The Neptunes, Andre 3000, Nellee Hooper, Dallas Austin, Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis, Linda Perry and Tony Kanal) to create a genre bending masterpiece that is guaranteed to be one of the most talked about records of this year and beyond.

Amazon.com

On No Doubt's great Rock Steady, Gwen Stefani was a "girl that hangs with the boys... just sippin' on chamomile." Three years and a KROQ-nerd Talk Talk cover later, she presents a solo debut that wants it all--Vivienne Westwood and John Galliano, backseat love and lifetime devotion, '70s pop throwbacks and hip-hop beats as well as Clash adoration (she continues to be managed by the firm of Rebel Waltz, named for a mournful Sandinista! cut). Among the standout tracks are the stomping, Neptunes-driven "Hollaback Girl," the tongue-in-cheek Eve/Dr. Dre collaboration "Rich Girl," and the girl-power manifesto "What You Waiting For?"; another tune, "The Real Thing," nods toward role-model Madonna's "Holiday." Though it can't match Rock Steady's inexorable track-by-track flow, Love, Angel, Music, Baby is such state-of-the-art pop that the description almost feels like damning it with faint praise. --Rickey Wright

Love Angel Music Baby Review

No Doubt has been one of the best ska bands of the past decade and has provided many songs for everyone to enjoy. My personal fave is "ex-Girlfriend". The popularity of its lead singer Gwen Stefani has since grown and Gwen has decided to make a new album without her band, though some songs on this CD (named after her new clothing line) are collaborations with her former bandmates. Led by the hot single "What You Waiting For", Gwen provides us with an eclectic mix of songs on her debut solo CD, showcasing her fascination with Harujuku girls and her own insecurity with making a solo album and how it will be recieived.

Track List

1) What You Waiting For- This is definitely something I have never heard before. Gwen's voice is all over the place with this song and it makes the song so good. This is the first single and it's a great song. This is an excellent song to dance around to (as well as sing to, which I have done several times today, lol.) 5/5

2) Rich Girl (featuring Eve)- Another collaboration with Eve that fails to match or even surpass their previous collaboration on that song "Let Me Blow Ya Mind", but it is still a good song nonetheless. 4/5

3) Hollaback Girl- Although a bit repetitive, this is still a great song. Backed with a stomping sound and trumpets, this song is good, but still could be better. But it is still a fun track. 4/5

4) Cool- A synth filled track, this song talks about a breakup, but puts a positive spin on things by being friends with the person you broke up with (*coughTonyandGwencough* lol). This is a perfect example of Gwen's 80s influences on this CD.

3.0 out of 5 stars L.A.M.B., not sure what to make of it. December 11, 2004
Format:Audio CD
I really love Gwen's work with No Doubt, but solo albums tend to be hit or miss. Gwen's done a great job of hooking up with Today's Top Producers, but this doesn't always bode well for her. Somehow she comes across like too much of a fan copying other people's musical styles. I was expecting something a little more unique because Gwen was always so original with No Doubt.

I think Gwen's album is okay ear candy for a little while. The songs are catchy and sometimes infectious. If you don't take the whole thing seriously you might even like it. But if you want substance I doubt this album's what you are really looking for. Standout tracks are What You Waiting For, Long Way To Go and The Real Thing. Eve's rap in Rich Girl sounded dancehallish and cool, but Eve's words and Gwen's lyrics were so wack. The rest of the songs on Love Angel Music Baby suck in my opinion.

Gwen talks too much about Harajuku girls and objectifies them in a demeaning light. Maybe she doesn't mean to do this, but when I watch her performances, videos and interviews with these Harajuku Girls in the background like ornaments and mimes, I cannot help but notice this.

Sometimes I cannot understand Gwen's lyrics in her songs because they are difficult to hear in the midst of the noise in the background. I hear a bunch of stuff going on and it gets annoying and distracting. I've had to go online to get the lyrics to her CD. When I do understand what she is saying in her music, I am not impressed with what she is talking about. I think her references to drug use are so unnecessary. I know this is supposed to be a fun album, but saying nonsensical and vulgar stuff to make yourself appear relevant and cool is not the prerequisite in order to make fun music.

Well...it's a bit hard to start this review since this recording is so diverse and totally all over the place! I wasn't expecting very much from this CD, but I was pleasantly surprised! She weaves 70s, 80s, 90s, dance, hip-hop, electronica and R&B into a very unique package. I'm not sure if L.A.M.B. will be a classic, but it deserves recognition for its brazen originality.

It starts out with the driving "What You Waiting For?" - a great tune, that doesn't get boring, as some reviewers have noted. Then the hit "Rich Girl", which I didn't really at first listen, but I'm hooked now. "Hollaback Girl" is reminiscent of "Mickey", by Toni Basil. Then, my favorite!, "Bubble Pop Electric" takes you on a wild ride. I hit the replay button more than once on this song. "Luxurious" is totally laid back and full of soul. The balance of the CD continues on its signature course of individuality.

Bottom line: The strength of this album is its originality. Consequently, the weakness of this album is its originality. I'm glad I own this CD. I will pop it from time to time when I want to hear something that is not overproduced and transparent. Nice debut Gwen - you've got a hit!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great album November 24, 2004
By Jenna
Format:Audio CD
One mistake you don't want to make before buying this album is expecting it to be the same Gwen Stefani we all know and love as the lead singer of No Doubt. The songs on this album are about as far from No Doubt-style as it gets. Nothing about the album is mainstream, and almost every song is in a completely different style. Making an album like this is a big risk, and it was destined to either be a hit or a miss and nothing in between. I think it's going to turn out to be a hit!

#1. What You Waiting For

This song's lyrics reflect how Gwen was feeling about doing this album. You can kind of tell what she was going through by listening to it, and the video matches the song perfectly while also conveying a sense of originality. One of the best videos of the year, I thought. The song itself is similar to a song that would have been found on an old Madonna album. It has a very 80s sound and a great beat.

8/10

#2. Rich Girl

The style of this song seems to reflect Gwen's very early days, when No Doubt was purely ska. Many No Doubt fans don't like the first album because it was in such a different style than the later ones. So if you don't like the first No Doubt album, you might not like this one. Personally, I like it.

6/10

#3. Hollaback Girl

When I read the lyrics and skimmed through the song a bit at first, I was almost sure I wouldn't like it. Gwen Stefani doing hip hop? Actually, I love it. There is just something about the song that I really like. I doubt it will be a single because they will have to censor practically every other word for the video, but I think it would be pretty successful. On the first listen you probably won't like it a lot because it's a lot different from what you would expect from Gwen.
