Music Review: The Sweet Escape by Gwen Stefani

Gwen Stefani looks like a blonde diva with her new release of The Sweet Escape. I’ve been a big fan of Gwen since her dark hair start with No Doubt in Anaheim, California.
So has Gwen Stefani let me down with her new album or will this album allow me a sweet escape from reality?

Wind It Up had a strange beginning but that’s unique for Gwen. She just oozes originality and doesn’t do the same thing twice. I could see Wind It Up spinning in the dance clubs and blaring through car sound systems.

The Sweet Escape, Gwen Stefani’s cover song has a poppy snap to it. It has a beat to it but it just doesn’t sound like the Gwen Stefani that I’m use to and love. The Sweet Escape reminds me of cruising songs played on the airwaves during summer of ’83.

Early Winter puts Gwen Stefani’s vocals on display. I don’t know if she was trying to do her own rendition of Stevie Nicks vocals. Now I’m not giving the song a thumb down and I’m actually hoping that Stevie Nicks and Gwen Stefani do perform a duo for this song. The mixture of vocals to this song would be amazing.

Check out Now You Got It, Yummy, Breakin Up, Don’t Get It Twisted. Each offers beats and base for the dance floor with its own originality.

Rachel Devitt of Rhapsody.com considered it the best Hip Hop rendition of the Sound of Music in her review. Rachel my dear, you must have been eating magic mushrooms when you wrote this review. The Sweet Escape will not let you down or put you on snore like The Sound Of Music has to thousands, myself included.

The only thing about Gwen Stefani lyrics of Breakin’ Up is it’s future. With lyrics like “Hold up I think your cutting out” and “Tell me am I losing you” Gwen Stefani could always sell the rights to Verizon to use on one of its many commercials.

With The Sweet Escape, Gwen Stefani still holds on to her own in music and beat, while experimenting with new sounds. The best thing about technology today is that The Sweet Escape is available on Napster and Rhapsody.com. You can grab your favorite music downloads and forget about the rest. So If I were to suggest the top music downloads for this music album I would make sure that you purchased Wind It Up for its unique mixture of yodeling and dance beats. Now You Got It for its crumping and dance style. Now You Got It, Whatcha goin’ do about it? Yummy for is digital Tetris seduction of a music download.
