Rock Steady by No Doubt (2001)
No Doubt’s fifth studio album is absolutely one of the best albums I’ve heard in a long time. Many agree that Rock Steady was a smash from their previous album Return of Saturn (2000). As a result of much collaboration, Rock Steady touches on many musical styles. Grammy-winning hits “Hey Baby” and “Underneath it All” can still be heard on most radio stations today. Every track on this album is superb; Gwen and the boys really did an excellent job. No Doubt will be touring in 2009 as well as releasing their next highly anticipated album (check their website for updates).
Rock Steady had four singles: “Hey Baby,” “Hella Good,” “Underneath It All,” and “Running.” Sly & Robbie, The Neptunes, Prince, and William Orbit were among the many artists No Doubt collaborated with on the album.
