No Doubt's most underrated album. Tragic Kingdom may have helped revitalize ska, but this 1995 album was the beginning of what No Doubt could have accomplished. Though this came out first, it sounds almost like a Tragic Kingdom deepcuts album.

Lyrically, this album is a bit more basic; with Gwen singing mainly about love, fake people, and the realization that she needs/deserves better for herself. You're going to find your vintage Gwen Stefani ska ballads ("Stricken", "Greener Pastures"), but that's to be expected when you're listening to a No Doubt album.

The Beacon Street Collection shows off No Doubt's range as musicians (from "Open The Gate" - a pop-infused Ska song, to "Total Hate 95" - a mix of 90s thrash ska with a melody during the breakdowns, to "Snakes" - a heavier ska song with a grungier sound).

Unlike most albums that are considered deepcuts, you could play this for a generic music fan and they would most likely find a couple songs they enjoy. While this album will never be considered a classic, it's very much overlooked and deserves to be recognized as one of No Doubt's most complete productions.
