I really liked Love Angel Music Baby as soon as I heard it. What U Waitin’ For was a spectacular debut single, and the brilliant Bubble Pop Electric made me bounce round my room for weeks.
So, now, here comes The Sweet Escape, and I’m immediately put off it by her hair. Once again we see here the importance of proper popstar hair. I’m curious as to see how No Doubt fans will accept Gwen back. Hasn’t she just about lost all credibility?
The dreary ‘Orange County Girl’ send us reaching for the skip button as a whiny Gwen sings "I’m just an Orange County girl, living in an extraordinary world." Give us ‘Jenny from The Block’ anyday.
