For years and years, Gwen Stefani has been a love-it-or-hate-it type of gal. If it's not her name or presence alone that's bound to spark some debates, then it would be Stefani's vocals. In that department, I have mixed responses: on one hand, the quality of her voice is relatively distinctive, though at the same time, she can become really grating. Gwen Stefani likes to drive that point home on her second solo album, The Sweet Escape, released in 2006. Let me just say I enjoyed the songs off Love.Angel.Music.Baby more than I liked the tracks here. This is one of those releases which would've better as an EP than a full-length offering; 1) The Sweet Escape, 2) Early Winter, 3) 4 In the Morning, 4) U Started It, and 5) Wonderful Life. Unless if you're really into Gwen Stefani for both her solo work and No Doubt (although I'm sure a lot of people on Sput dislike her guts), don't bother with what The Sweet Escape has to offer.
