    Not Pleased

    I love Gwen, but I hate the way she sings...or does not sing on this album. I don't like her new style. I miss her in No Doubt. L.A.M.B. was better soley because she sang.

    Horrible

    This album is really bad. Her debut album was a solid pop album with good songs. But this one is just embarassing. On some songs, Gwen is almost rapping (Yummy, Breakin' Up, Orange county girl), and she cant even rap! Shes tripping over her words and getting tounge-tied. Breakin' UP is probably the worst song on: theres no melody, the horrible "rapping", and the horrible lyrics. The only good songs are the pop-rock songs like Early winter, Wonderful life, Dont get it twisted, Now that youve got it. It's really hard to listen to the whole album because of the akward and embarrasing "rap" songs. Gwen needs to go back to No Doubt and actually write and SING great songs, not dumb little filler songs.

    so sad

    Save your money for a root canal, its just as painfull. I dont really understand why Gwen feels the need to "rap" when she can actually sing! This is just so sad to see...and hear. I miss NoDoubt. Now that was good music.

    Go Back To No Doubt

    LAMB was somewhat embarrassing, but at least it had a couple of songs on there that were catchy enough. The lyrics were insanely bad though, and on Sweet Escape it gets no better. This album though is even worse because there is not one song on here that doesn't sound like a pure mess with no direction. I don't know what Gwen was thinking with this album overall, but it sounds awkward, shallow and immature. I was hoping, at her age, something would change. But nope, still the same woman with no change or growth at all showing on this album. If LAMB is one of your favorite albums then you'll probably enjoy this album, and that's about it.

    Not the best

    I was disappointed by her new CD. I love Gwen and I even liked her first CD, but this CD is not the same. It's one thing to have a new style, but she's sold out on this one.
