Love it. I loved her solo career but I like her as part of No Doubt too.

I saw her live on her second solo tour

I think 'WYWF' is definately up there in the best songs of the 00's and a very decent pop song! I love No Doubt, seriously they are one of my favourite bands ever however I also adored Gwen's solo work (not keen on some album tracks) Early Winter, 4 In The Morning and Now That You Got It my personal favourites

Love love love Gwen's solo stuff. 'WYWF' is a brilliant (clever) pop track.

Hollaback girl, Harajuku girls, 4 In the morning and Early Winter are personal favourites.

I think she shows both sides of what modern music is about. With No Doubt she is part of a group which writes and performs their own music whilst solo she is part of the music factory fronting someone else's efforts.

She's great solo and she's great in No Doubt. I too, love both.

My favourite No Doubt track is probably 'Its My Life.' I love WYWF, Cool, Rich Girl, Hollaback Girl and most on that album tbh. And totally agree, WYWF is one of the best songs of the '00's.

If that's your favourite ND song then you must be really young! Total Hate and Oi to the world are my favourite covers with Greener Pastures my favourite probably.

I am girl, I'm only 20. I wouldn't say I was a massive fan simply because I've never sat down and listened to all their stuff, but the songs I do know, I love. Gwen is bby girl though. Tic toc n all that.

Excellent debut as a solo artist who used to be in a band.
It really felt like she was living out the lyrics and relating to the song, but it also transitioned into a general message of encouragement for listeners.

The video was brilliant as well!

"Cool" is perfection. Wywf reminds me of some brilliant drunken parties in my 20s.

I loved her first solo album. At the time it was so different and refreshing for the pop world. By the time she released her second album, everybody was doing that sort of sound. Although 'Wind it Up' was pretty awesome.

It's sad that people see her first and foremost as a solo artist, in many respects she sold out what she came from by doing solo stuff.

She was and is better than Lady GaGa.

I think you'll find she had just as much involvement in her solo work as she does with No Doubt. She's an incredible lyricist, particularly with the more introspective ballad stuff she does.

Brilliant album, though. Cool remains one of my favourite songs ever.

Maybe so but nothing like the input she had with the band.
