They are a helluva fun and, more crucially, don't sound like anyone else.

Ska-pop mogwai No Doubt make a joyous return after an 11-year sabbatical with Push And Shove.

Singer Gwen Stefani wheezes like a Cali-girl hanging out with the boys and the music is a buffet (electro, reggae, dubstep) everyone can dive into.

The title track, co-produced by Diplo and featuring his band Major Lazer, is a dancehall-inflected ditty that pushes all the right buttons. More cookie-cutter pop zingers such as Looking Hot ooze charisma Carly Rae Jepson would die for.
