1) intro- this is basically just the chorus to "rock steady." A
2) hella good- i don't like this song too much, it's kinda dark and too long. B
3) hey baby- this is the first EXTREMELY catchy song, and it's
great to dance to. A
4) making out- another EXTREMELY catchy song should be a single; actually they all could be singles. anyway, the song is great.
5) underneath it all- i think this song starts out at a Jamaican radio station, then it turns into "underneath it all," then turns back to the radio station. weird, but fun! A
6) detective- one of my favs off this album, it could make a great video. A+
7) don't let me down- this and "platinum blonde life" stole the melody from some 90's rock song, but the melodies were so good, and the lyrics so fresh, that you don't care! my fav. A+
8) start the fire- okay, this song starts out VERY strange, but turns into an electronic/reggae mix of rock. A
9) running- long, draggy... B-
10) in my head- my 2nd fave. somewhat original, and great to sing along to. ends horribly! A+ though.
11) platinum blonde life- this song is pretty good, but it sounds too much like a green day or barenaked ladies song. A
12) waiting room- if the ending wasn't that okay, then this would have failed my grading scheme. C-
13) rock steady- the traditional no doubt, 5 1/2 minute long song! this song is VERY take-your-time. A
overall, no doubt has made a (i wouldn't say different...) new album with great music and EXTREMELY catchy choruses and verses from Gwen.
P.S. No Doubt's new single "It's My Life" is surprisingly good (I still like this band, I cannot help it), and will hopefully foreshadow a departure far, far away from the dark, gaping hole that is "Rock Steady."
P.S- This might sound mean, but maybe Gwen needs to have some relationship problems in order to release another cd that would sound as good as their previous ones.
1.Intro-It's a 27 second intro, starts the same way as Rock Steady (13th track) and I think this should've been an interlude for rock steady. 10/10
2.Hella Good-Probably my favorite song. This is getting played on certain stations a lot, but this is still a good song. 9/10
3.Hey Baby featuring Bounty Killer-This is the 1st single and it's a REALLY good song.10/10
4.Making Out-The chorus gets old fast, but the verses are nice. 8/10
5.Underneath It All- 2nd single, and it's an ok song. 7/10
6.Detective-Awesome song! 10/10
7.Don't Let Me Down-This song just gets really dull. 6/10
8.Start The Fire-This song is so BORING! 2/10
10.In My Head-Better then 'Running'. 10/10
11.Platinum Blonde Life-This song is awesome, even though I'm not blonde! 10/10
12.Waiting Room-Boring. 4/10
13.Rock Steady-GREAT song. 9/10
Intro - 10/10 - Though it's only 27 seconds long, it's still a pretty good opener. Read more
