EDITORS’ NOTES

Gwen Stefani has long used music as a safe haven, a space where she can openly and candidly express her feelings. This Is What the Truth Feels Like transforms her breakup with Gavin Rossdale into soothing, therapeutic pop. “Used to Love You” is her most deeply confessional track since No Doubt’s “Don’t Speak.” “Truth” and “Misery” gently examine emotional scars to propulsive dance-pop. Then, around the flirty “Send Me a Picture,” the healing sunshine brings the heat. Stefani counts blessings on “Rare” and playfully blocks exes on “Red Flag” and “Naughty.” Truth is filled with tears and laughs—Stefani bravely attacking grief, stage by stage.

Best yet!!

This is seriously her best album yet. People whining about the “old Gwen” need to get over themselves. It’s 2016 not 1995. Of course she’s not going to sound like she did like 20 years ago - she’s grown and changed just like any other great artist.

With that said, this album sounds beautiful. It’s very real and honest as she sings about the loss of a toxic relationship and the blossoming of something new and highly relatable. It’s a more mature album with a strong voice. Each song meshes together beautifully and doesn’t have an all over the place sound like her previous albums did (loved those albums, too). As a California girl, this album carries a hint of a beach-y vibe and is overall fun and brilliant. I highly recommend this album - it’s her best one yet.
