I just heard Gwen Stefani’s new single, What You Waiting For, and I’m really upset. No Doubt has always been one of my favorite bands, and I spent all my teenage years listening to Gwen Stefani’s strong feminine voice booming from my stereo.
I’m really disappointed in “What You Waiting For” because of the tasteless imitation of the vulgar currently popular music. It’s also erotic and completely meaningless. The only meaningful phrase in the whole song was taken from an old song of No Doubt, being “Born to blossom, bloom to perish.”
I do respect her trying to get the younger tasteless generation to like her, but that doesn’t require her to absolutely rid her music of everything that was so beautiful and so unique in No Doubts previous albums(not counting Rock Steady which was the beginning of the decline).
Really, I hope the rest of the songs on the album are not as crap.
