Pop Justice compares "Settle Down" to "Bad Romance"
"Been around the block before, doesn't matter any more."
The chances of this No Doubt comeback single being a dud were slim to non-existent but it's still a relief to hear with our own ears the definite amazingness of 'Settle Down'.
In terms of signature sound the track doesn't really mess around - this is definitely a No Doubt tune, rather than a Gwen one - but it gives the less Popjustice-friendly end of the No Doubt 'sonic' 'palette' a swerve, and by that we mean it goes easy on the ska-punk racket side of things. Hurrah.
To these ears it's instantly brilliant but it feels like a grower too, so it will probably be the size of a 'Bad Romance'-themed skyscraper by the time the album's released in THE MIDDLE OF BLOODY SEPTEMBER.
45 seconds of the song is below - you can go over to their official site if you want to hear the full thing.
I don't trust Popjustice anymore. Remember what they said about Judas ?
-Imagine a highly evolved, Titanium-plated 'Bad Romance' from the year 2511 travelling half a millennium back in time to save music from a tidal wave of 'in the club'-obsessed pop drivel, and that's 'Judas'. We love this song so much. It's pop in all the right ways, it's noisy in all the right ways, it's brash and bombastic and funny and audacious and stupid in all the right ways, and it's smart in all the right ways, too.
-the chorus is a thousand storeys high
-Well, 'Judas' is to 'Bad Romance' as 'Bad Romance' was to 'Poker Face'.
I hope this song goes #2 on BB or even #1 if anything
