  • Date: March 18th, 2016
  • Label: Interscope

This is What The Truth Feels like is Gwen Stefani’s 3rd studio release. I think its her most personal work to date. You can feel her emotions in each and every song. She worked with producers Mattman & Robin, Greg Kurstin, JR Rotem and Stargate.

Gwen Stefani has has sold close to 30 million records as the front woman for the band No Doubt and as a multi-platinum solo artist.

I was first introduced to Gwen Stefani was she was in No Doubt and I really liked them but it wasn’t really until Gwen went out on her own that I started to really fall in love with her music. Yes I admit I was dancing and singing to Hollaback Girl when it came out and listened to it non stop. Please tell me I wasn’t the only one doing that?

I was lucky enough to be provided a digit download of This is What The Truth Feels Like for review and since getting this digital download I have actually went out and bought the cd. Its currently in my car and we listen to it all the time. Michael loves Gwen Stefani’s music just as much as I do.

I love Gwen’s newest cd. You can feel all her emotions in each and every song. I love this side of Gwen. What I love about this cd is that each song is so different from the previous one but it suits the cd so well. All the music flows perfectly. We get to see a softer side to Gwen as well as that edgy girl we have grown to love from No Doubt.

I am going to include videos below of my two favorite songs so far from the from the cd and I think Where Would I Be, Truth, and Me Without You are easily favorites for me as well. In all honesty I really enjoy all the songs on the cd. There is a little something for everyone I think in this cd.

Used to Love You was the first song that came of the cd and this was one of those pure emotion songs. You could feel the heart break that she was going through. This is one of my favorite songs because listening to it it brought back memories of a past relationship I was in and this sums up those feelings perfectly.

Make Me Like You is another one of my favorite songs this is pure Gwen in the making. This is her kind of video. Its hard to believe that she filmed this live music  during a Grammy Awards commercial break. The only hiccup in the whole production was when her stunt double fell during the roller skating scene. This is one of those happy upbeat songs and I love listening to this and I admit when I listen to it its up pretty loud.

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.
