I LOVE The Sweet Escape. My favorite songs are 4 In The Morning, The Sweet Escape, Wonderful Life and Now That You Got It. I like it better then Love, Angel, Music, Baby.

This album is amazing but you won't like it first time you listen to it...Not like her 80s rock record L.A.M.B Gwen is the only artist out there with guts to yodel in an Electronica Glam Rock track. "Don't get it twisted" is a wierd Circus track..Its so unique and fun to listen to . "Yummy" left me speechless in a good way (but I had to listen to it some times to realy like it). "Fluorescent" and "U started it" are obviously 80s inspired. She has an Indie-Rockish track "early winter" , "4 in the morning" is a beautiful Madonna inspired Track and "wonderful life" with its Indie sounds and clever lyrics. "Breaking up" is the weakest track... it's good but it doesn't fit this album. The best Track is Wonderful Life. I prefered her (Gwen Stefani aka No Doubt) ..Rock 'n' Roll Punk Music a lot better but I think you should give this one a try... ;)Trust me.

I thought that "L.A.M.B." was a very solid debut for Gwen, and this sophomore effort doesn't quite disappoint either. Her first solo effort seemed to be consistent and well thought out, at first listen; this just seems weak and rushed in comparison. Yeah, some of the songs are cool but there are definitely more tracks on here that are skip-worthy than on her first album.

"The Sweet Escape" is definitely more R&B influenced, whereas "L.A.M.B" was more Pop/Rock influenced. But despite this difference between them, both albums have that eclectic and quirky diversity that we've come to expect from Gwen. After a few listens I come to realize that she does best (solo wise) when she's doing pop songs rather than when she's Hip-Hop/R&B. To me, the moments that give The Sweet Escape its sweetness as well as being the strongest are the title track, "4 in the Morning," " Fluorescent," "U Started It" and "Wonderful "life." All of these have great choruses. But "Early Winter" takes the cake here; she sounds like her old self on this track making you believe that she was back with No Doubt. I also like "Yummy" due to its sexy lyrics, "Sweet Escape," "Now That You Got It," and "Don't Get It Twisted" with its techno and dance-hall vibe.

"The Sweet Escape," sounds like it's aching to grab hold of her long-standing love of new wave pop. The production of this album is pretty creative. The reason it's a 3 and not a 4 is because the songs seem to clash a bit making it sound too much alike. But regardless, this is definitely one to pick up if you're interested or enjoyed the singles off L.A.M.B.

Gwen Stefani is one of the most exciting artists working in the mainstream. She oozes style in just about everything she does, while her music is consistently innovative and always inventive.

The former No Doubt lead singer showed with her debut solo album "Love Angel Music Baby" that she had what it takes to compete at the forefront of the mainstream scene, mixing it capably with the likes of Madonna, Pink and Beyonce yet delivering things in a style that was distinctly her own.

Sophomore album "The Sweet Escape" maintains those high standards and proves that her debut was no fluke. It's a fantastic listen, capable of widespread crossover appeal and almost certain to fall prey to flattering imitations.

It impresses from the outset, kicking off with the brilliant lead single "Wind It Up" and tossing in one hit after another in a number of different styles.

"Wind It Up", in particular, is a highlight that's sure to become a signature tune for the artist. With its cheeky "Sound Of Music" sample wrapped around a more distinct tub-thumping beat (think "Hollaback Girl"), it's an absolute riot of energy that appeals to the childlike dancer in every one of us. You'll be foot-tapping and hip-swaying along with its infectious energy in spite of any reservations you may feel. But it's Stefani's gift that she can take something that, on paper, sounds cheesy and make it utterly, utterly cool.

Thereafter, it's a thrilling and eclectic mix packed with the usual smattering of high-profile collaborations - but crucially, with some surprise additions.

Gwen's second solo album,"The Sweet Escape" manages to incorporate various styles to offer 12 distinctly unique tunes. It opens with "Wind it Up", sampling the Sound of Music's "Lonely Goat Herd", singing about being a girl, and exactly why boys adore them. Suddenly you realise you've missed having Ms. Stefani in your life.

She collaborates with Pharrell on "Orange County Girl", "Yummy", "Breakin' Up" and "U Started It".

Other big names who contribute to the album include Akon on "The Sweet Escape" and No Doubt's Tony Kanal on "4 In the Morning", "Fluorescent and Don't Get It Twisted". Keane's Tim Rice-Oxley collaborated with Gwen on the smooth, soft rock "Early Winter".

A mistress of the synthetic sound, with lyrics that allude to smart girlie conversations over a cuppa, Gwen's taken all the big hitters, ranging from Nellee Hooper to Keane's Tim Rice-Oakley to contribute. She's mixed them all up, soaking up trends that ensure she's played in all the gyms and Topshops nationwide, but she's not letting anyone take over. She's big enough for all of them.

Topics span apologising for being grumpy ("The Sweet Escape") men who lie, making her cry (the Cardigans-esque "Early Winter"), and being an unremarkable small town girl, a la J. Lo ("Orange County girl").

As with her first album there are a few bland fillers, and she seems to lose her way a bit with "Breakin' up", a track about frustrating mobile conversations, but there's enough trademark majorette drumming to carry the album off. "Yummy" sums her up, coquettish, amusing, annoying and hip wiggling in equal measure.

"The Sweet Escape" lives up to the promise. Never afraid to try something new and create something completely fresh, Gwen succeeds in staying cutting edge.
