It would seem to be a no-brainer that Gwen Stefani's solo would be a breakout. She's a versatile vocalist
with a huge built-in fan base as lead singer of No Doubt, plus she borrowed the band's bass player, Tony Kanal. Sadly,
it turned out to fizzle. It starts off with "What You Waitin For?" with dance music by Nellee Hooper. After being inspired
in Japan, Stefani includes her friends, the Harijuku girls in her album, mentioning their "wicked" style, as well as including
some Japanese lyrics here and there. Stefani also teams up with Eve in the single "Rich Girl". The album awkwardly
shifts gears with nearly every track. "Love. Angel. Music. Baby." bears out an inescapable truth in popular music: There's
no such thing as a sure thing.
