When No Doubt's debut album proved a disappointment to Interscope executives, the label withdrew support from the band and refused to release them from their contract. Ironically, the group's self-produced reply, recorded during several sessions from 1993 to early 1995, turned out to be finer than the debut. The synth and new wave influences of the debut are pushed to the background and replaced by a raw sound inspired more by punk.
