No Doubt reunite for Push and Shove, their first album in 11 years. Once again the group is working with producer Spike Stent, who helmed much of 2001's Rock Steady, but they've also brought acclaimed electronica producer Diplo aboard, whose presence pushes No Doubt in new directions on "Push and Shove," one of two singles issued prior to the album's September release. The other, the Stent-produced "Settle Down," freshens up their signature retro new wave pop for the new millennium.
Rolling Stone (p.62) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "PUSH AND SHOVE leans toward synth-pop-flavored ballads with grown-up themes....The songs are catchy..."
Billboard (p.44) - "[T]he clubby thump of 'Looking Hot' establishes a spot for STefani alongside dance divas like Madonna, Lady Gaga and Robyn."
Q (Magazine) (p.108) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "The lead single 'Settle Down' is jerky dancehall-lite....Diplo weighs in on the electro-ska title track..."
