April 2, 2000: "Return of Saturn" rating
from No-Doubt.net

No Doubt's new album got 3/5 points in the Swedish Magazine Slitz:
"Return of Saturn is Gwen Stefani's public 30's crisis, with the reflections of a hectic life where there is really no time for feelings. Glen Ballard, who made Alanis Morisette's Jagged Little Pill, has prodded the most of it and in places there's the same melodic ska-rock, as on Tragic Kingdom, but Gwen's jumpy style has changed to a more serious way and there for some of the charm has disappeared. Ex-Girlfriend, Magic's In The Makeup, Too Late and Comforting lie are great tracks, though with less hit-potential than before."
