Part of the success of this particular album is the involvement of founding member Eric Stefani. Gwen Stefani's older brother did most of the writing. He left the band during the recording of the album, and eventually made a career of animation, most famously on the Simpsons. His break with the group has been described as being very Brian Wilson-like, complete with depression and creative control issues.
This album is a great example of the beginning of the end of Ska music as a genre in pop music. No Doubt would never be the same again, as Eric Stefani was no longer in the band. They would continue to blend their pop punk sound with other genres like hip hop and funk, but could not keep themselves from sounding like a gimmick band.
This is the only No Doubt album I own, and there is a reason.
