One of the must-haves for die-hard fans
on 28 November 2002
Admittedly, it's not the best Goo Goo Dolls album, but there are some gems on there which are worth listening to, such as 'James Dean' , 'Outta Sight', and 'Up Yours'.
This album will probably only really appeal to hard-core Goo fans, as it contains no well-known songs, but it's a fascinating CD to listen to, if only to see just how far the Goos have come since they first began. You can tell the hooks are there, waiting to be used fully, and 'James Dean' is an excellent demonstration that John has always written more thoughtful, melodic songs (which ought to silence anyone who claims the Goo Goo Dolls have 'sold out').
It's not a must-have CD, but it's a vital addition to any Goo fan's collection.
