Overview

Leave it to No Doubt to infuse the pop music scene with a booster shot of sunny retro pop circa 1984. Taking a page from the moxie manual of girl-driven new wave bands like Romeo Void and Missing Persons (most noticeably on the cheeky "Bathwater," which finds Gwen Stefani coyly purring "Why do the good girls always want the bad boys?"), the Anaheim band have expanded their sound beyond -- without completely forsaking -- the ska punk that permeated their work leading up to their Grammy-nominated disc TRAGIC KINGDOM. Each of the 14 tracks is packed with an infectious punch -- a fresh sound that was foreshadowed by the whirling synth and droning kick drum of "New," which first appeared on the GO movie soundtrack. The influence of goth forerunners the Cure is also felt, particularly on the haunting "Home Now," with its Spanish horns, bolero guitar licks, and ska-tinged bass line. RETURN OF SATURN also reflects the band's evolution as musicians and Stefani's growth as a songwriter. The thoughtful ballads "Simple Kind of Life" and "Marry Me" show that the songbird is no longer content with being just a girl. She's a young woman pondering such issues as matrimony and motherhood. And don't let her pink hair, wonderfully breathy vocals, or nostalgic '80s pop references undercut what's going on here: This is the sound of a great pop band, almost all grown up.

I love no Doubt, I mean Gwen Stefani is the perfect role model for young girls nowadays and the songs are awesome. Not to mention, she is the only girl who could ever pull off having pink hair.

I saw the music video for 'Ex-Girlfriend'and it is so cool!The song is great.That song alone is enough reason to buy the CD!
Guest More than 1 year ago
Awesome. I love every track. It's fun, like usual, but Gwen goes over the top with her beautiful lyrics and the boys play some wicked music. Gwen went from lamenting over Tony in Tragic, to wanting to have a simple married life and being a mother. Listen to it if you get the chance.

I was totally surprised by this album. I had heard about it for years and then i just bought it for no reason. Every song on Return to Saturn is amazing. Starting with Six Feet Under and ending with Dark blue, it is just a very deep, dark, and mellow experience. The whole CD is just great to have and a great addition to my collection of CDs.

No doubt has done it yet again. Gewn Stefani has a WONDERFUL voice! This is a MUST! I haven't been able to stop listening to it!

If you want an album you can listen to straight through without stopping, Return of Saturn is it. No Doubt strays a little (but not alot) from its' ska roots and experiments with some trancy vibes. If you're a No Doubt fan from way back when, you'll love it.

This album is so great. I believe that what's so capturing about it is, it's great mixture of music and lyrics. The lyrics are very relatable...i could relate to them, my friends could, and so could my mother...they are very touching and inspirational. The music is ''killer''. Even without the lyrics i could listen to this.Each and every song is different and unique from each other. No Doubt is so very different from other bands because you can tell the difference between each song (not all of them sound the same). The bass and drums mix together are so awesome.This album is the best one i own.

this is an absolutely wonderful CD. if you like no doubt, which you should, you'll love this. rock, ska, reggae, new wave, pop, alternative... just a few of the genres No doubt has been grouped in and i think this CD does a superb job of showing every side. It took years to make and it was worth every minute. by the way, i love no doubt.

THIS ALBUM IS TOTALLY DIFFERENT FROM TRAGIC KINGDOM. THEY HAVE MATURED ALOT. I THINK THE BAND HAS BEEN THROUGH ALOT AND HAVE NOW WRITTEN SOME AMAZING LYRICS!! THIS CD IS A MUST!!
