Yep. Two very different eras of the band IMO, the earlier material with Greg X. Volz on vocals, and the later John Schlitt material. My favorite albums as complete albums are the Elefante Brothers produced releases, Beyond Belief and Unseen Power. The earlier material has some great individual songs such as Grave Robber and The Colouring Song.

Yeah, I prefer John but Greg is good too. My favorite is hands down Back to the Street, but This Means War! & On Fire! are really great too ūüėĀ

I sorta grew up with it. My dad had a friend who would make mixtapes for my brother and I. The only bands I can recall on them were White Heart, some local band called Hokus Pick Manouver, and Petra. I guess my young ears preferred the heavier side of Rock.

The first full album I remember listening to was Wake Up Call; my brother got it for his birday. Then we got No Doubt in 1995, and I bought my first ever cassette that year, as well -- John Schlitt's "Shake," of course.

I was a Pet-head in my early years, but by the late 90s I stopped listening to them, as their sound changed. 

I'll bust out an album every now and then, but not too often; however, I catch myself singing their songs all the time. They've def left an impression I'll never shake, and, therefore, I consider them among my favourite bands.

Nice, I haven't exactly listened to everything, because I don't like how their sound changed later on either, and I prefer their harder stuff with John, Greg's a little bit more synthy, and I don't like that as much- it's not Petra to me. I'm collecting all albums from Back To The Street through Wake Up Call. I just need On Fire!, This Means War!, & Petra Praise: The Rock Cries Out. Then I'll be complete- but I want Beat The System too, once I'm done with collecting the John albums I want I'll listen to more of Greg's stuff.

But No Doubt is their best album.

Cool, I feel like you don't hear much about it but I could be wrong. You hear least about Back To The Street I think. That's my favorite
