Disclosure: I participated in this sponsored album review program as a member of One2One Network. I was provided the album to review but all opinions are my own.
I will admit that I wasn't very familiar with Gwen Stefani's music prior to reviewing "This Is What The Truth Feels Like"! I had to do some research on Gwen Stefani prior to writing this review. I kept thinking that I had not heard of the band, No Doubt, and of her connection to them. However, when I started to listen to a "Don't Speak" YouTube video, I recognized her as the lead singer for that band. I know of her being on the show, " The Voice", and of her dating Blake Shelton. I did not know that she was a songwriter, and that she's been writing music since childhood. Her first two solo albums were multi-platinum sellers; "Love.Angel.Music.Baby" and "The Sweet Escape". Her third solo album is called "This Is What The Truth Feels Like", and to me, it sounds like another multi-platinum
I downloaded the album onto my iPod Nano, and took it with me on a day trip to Orlando during son's Spring Break. My husband was driving, and he usually doesn't want to listen to my music. The ear buds went into my ears, and I turned the iPod on. "Misery" is the first song on the new album, and I loved it! It started off the album with such a catchy tune, along with a catchy beat! I had several favorites on this album; "Misery", "Make Me Like You", "Send Me A Picture", "Red Flag", "Asking 4 It", "Naughty", and "Rare"! (It was hard not to dance in my passenger seat in the car when Steve was driving! Both hubby and son would have been embarrassed!) At home, I danced around the house with my ear buds in listening to this new album! My favorite song of the 12 to dance to was "Naughty"!! I love the album, seriously, and definitely recommend it, regardless of the fact that I got a copy of the digital download in order to facilitate my review! Though I am not one for understanding the themes very often for some music, Gwen's current album speaks of love and of loss.
