I have been a fan of Gwen Stefani since her No Doubt days. Her voice and style is definitely musically distinctive. After nine years of waiting, Gwen Stefani has debuted her 3rd solo album, This IS What The Truth Feels Like. It was released on March 18, 2016. She has been through a lot since she had 3 kids and lost her husband in a turbulent divorce. With songs of romance, heartbreak, betrayal, pain, finding yourself again, and new love, Gwen sings her heart out on this album with new emotions. She shows raw honesty. It is very touching. This album reflects her repertoire well, but breaths new feelings into her voice. Gwen has transformed and evolved from the girlish pop star to a more experienced woman. These songs are so relatable and the healing vibe towards the end of the track is refreshing.
My favorite songs on this album are Make Me Like You, Used To Love You, Me Without You, and Rare. Make Me Love You has a fun upbeat vibe and is reminiscent of some of her older work. Used To Love You is being honest about her feelings about her breakup. Me Without You has wonderful lyrics about admitting that she doesn't need the person. This is a great step to recovery and healing. Rare is a great song with a great beat. It is about starting over with someone new.
I love this album. The lyrics are refreshingly truthful and emotional. I love the music and Gwen's great voice. I am so glad Gwen spilled her heart in song for all to hear.
