This album is good though doesn't come close to it's predecessors IMO. They distanced themselves further from their ska roots but kept the reggae flair some of their tracks always had. Hella Good is one of those songs you just wanna keep turning up louder. Making out is probably my favorite track on the album, with an insanely catchy hook. Underneath It All and Start The Fire bring in that reggae sound I was talking about, and do so perfectly. Waiting Room is the most daring track on the album, having been heavily produced by Prince, and it shows. I do like it tho. Very solid album by my favorite band ever!

B+

I always liked the song Prince did and the one that was produced by William Orbit. They worked with a great number of producers and created what to me sounds like a great pop album.

Platinum Blonde Life is amazing with the volume all the way up. Hella Good is amazing, it's like some kind of Billie Jean redux but it always did it for me and I like the black and white video Mark Romanek did for that song.

I saw them tour in support of this album and it was a great show.

Oh I saw them by themselves, and if I remember correctly it was the first show they did for that tour, which kicked off in San Juan, PR.

Did Gwen climb up the metal staircases that hold the lights on the stage? My show was at an amphitheater and she just went up that thing during Just A Girl and I was like: :sweat:...

She's nuts in concert. Yeah they had their Rock Steady Tour then then had their co-tour with Blink. No climbing of the set-pieces at my show, but I loved it all. She has so much energy. I love how in Just A Girl she changes the lyrics to "fuck you I'm a girl". :)
