This album album became a phenomenon in the mid-90's which was a weird time for pop music. Grunge was pretty much dead, Gangsta rap was huge and teen pop was beginning to bubble up to the front of the line. Somewhere amongst all of this, No Doubt and their album "Tragic Kingdom" became one of the decade's biggest hits. One listen says why.
This album was truly unique and sounded much different than anything that was on the radio at the time. "Don't Speak" is the pop hit it's most remembered for. An awesome power ballad, it was the #1 song of 1997. Not bad. The other singles were huge hits on MTV and on alternative radio. "Spiderwebs" is a punky piece of ear candy and "Just A Girl" has since become a punk/pop anthem. "Sunday Morning" was also a minor hit. Other stand-outs are the poppy, yet angry "Happy Now," the soaring "Climb" and my favorite song, the title track "Tragic Kingdom" which is a complete head-trip to listen to. I would've loved for it to have been a single.
No Doubt have gone on to have successful projects with "Return of Saturn" and their latest more pop-ish effort "Rock Steady" which gave them a decent handful of hits. Yet, they haven't matched "Tragic Kingdom" in sales or musically. This is highly recommended. A great CD just to blast in your car and sing along to.

I first got this album in 96, but then stopped listening to it a couple of years later when I lost the CD... anyway, I recently heard it again at a friends house and remembered why I loved it so much, and simply had to rush out to get another copy.
This is one of those rare CDs that you can listen right through without having to skip any tracks. I'd say there are maybe 5 absolute classics, 6 very good tracks and 3 okay ones. My absolute fave track on here is probably "Happy Now". Gwen just sounds so strong in the track, the lyrics really hit you ("You killed the pair / now only one is breathing / there's no looking back / this time I mean it / are you happy now?"). I also love the two biggest singles from the set, "Don't Speak" and "Just A Girl", both are classics in their own right, and I've never met anyone who doesn't like these two. My other two favorite tracks are "Sunday Morning" (sounds good on the live version if you can find the import single), and "Excuse Me Mr".
One of the great things about No Doubt are the lyrics. There's none of this "I love you and can't live without you" drivel that packs most albums these days, but every track here has some kind of significance behind it. If you read the lyrics to the title track, you should be able to draw the links between what they are saying and Disneyland (the "Magic Kingdom" becoming the "Tragic Kingdom").
This album impressed me enough to make me buy two other No Doubt albums - The Beacon Street Collection is in a similar vein to this one, but a little more hit-and-miss, but tracks like "Open The Gate", "Greener Pastures" and "Dog House" make it worth the purchase. Return Of Saturn (their latest release) is kinda weird... it's not as instantly accessible as Tragic Kingdom, but gets better with each listen.

Released all the way back in 1995, this album went on to sell over 20 million copies worldwide (over 15 million in the US alone). This CD includes the hits Just a Girl, Spiderwebs, Don't Speak, Excuse Me Mr., and Sunday Morning.
The album opens with 1. Spiderwebs (5/5) This song is pretty much instantly catchy, and if your a person who likes to bang your head around, the chorus is perfect for that. 2. Excuse Me Mr. (4/5) This song is a pretty hardcore, in-your-face kinda song. It's probably the worst of their single releases from this album, but it's still really good. 3. Just a Girl (5/5) Now this is THE song that put No Doubt on the map. It's a girl anthem, but unlike alot of them, it isn't a man hating one! It opens with that famous, catchy guitar riff, and the song just goes from there. 4. Happy Now (4/5) I think it's pretty obvious that this song is about Gwen and Tony's break-up, but, it's not a bad song. It's pretty catchy to. 5. Different People (3/5). Another catchy song, about people being, well... different... It seems like a bit of a filler, but it's still an okay song. 6. Hey You (4/5) Lol, the chorus is kinda weird ("Your just like my Ken and Barbie doll"), but weird in a good way. The song is catchy, and I love the way they use the Sitar. 7. The Climb (4/5) Definitely the longest song on the album, topping the 6 minute mark. The only thing that keeps this song from reaching 5 stars, is the fact it seems to drag. Other than that, it's a great song.
8. Sixteen (5/5) One of my favorite songs not to be released from this album. It's really catchy, and has a great chorus. Great song. 9. Sunday Morning (5/5) I think this is one of No Doubt's most underrated songs. The big long drum roll at the beginning is great. Everything about this song is great. And, it's so damn catchy. 10.

The alterna craze of '96 was an era not an error. The musical genre was full of eerie and haunting music that was moving but it didn't exactly get you all cheery. No Doubt was different. Their music was not sad or depressing at all. Maybe the lyrics weren't the most harmonious ones in the world, but, the music certainly was. Catchy tunes that put you in a good mood and make ya wanna dance are what No Doubt are all about. The attention-drawing lead singer Gwen Stefani has a knack for really getting into the songs and making them emotional and believable. She really is the empress of ska. From the amazing singles "Just A Girl, "Don't Speak", and "Spider Webs" to the more underground but fun songs like "Happy Now", "Sixteen", "Hey You", and "Excuse Me Mr", No Doubt give you plenty to enjoy for as long as you like. Although there are songs on this album that are less enchanting and not as memorable like "Different People" and the title track "Tragic Kingdom", this band is still not a jester in their kingdom.
