Default Goo Goo Dolls - Better Days

I have a feeling there's a lot of Goo fans here, they happened to be my second favorite band, and they just put out their new single yesterday. "Better Days", its a great great song, a lil of a different sound for them, but it got to me. the lyrics are just beautiful

I havent heard much of the Goo Goo Dolls, only really know Iris and Big Machine, and heard Give A Little Bit a few times ... however, I've come to the conclusion that at this point in time they are virtually indistinguishable from where Bon Jovi are at now

So, if one was to consider buying a GGD album, which one should it be?

Though they never play any more of it live, Superstar Car Wash is their best album - HANDS DOWN!

A good choice might be What I Learned About Ego.......It's a "best of" that includes none of their more popular singles, such as Iris, Name or Slide. It has songs like Fallin' Down, Cuz You're Gone, There You Are, Just The Way You Are, Up Yours, 2 Days In February, Naked.

The Goos kick ass.

I have only heard the first minute or so - Does the song ever pick up and kick in a bit heavier?

Walk me through this, will ya? You've heard 2 songs and a cover and you think all they make is meaningless pop?

My favorite is probably Gutterflower - all songs are ace, imo.

Gutterflower is great - Probably my 2nd favorite GGD disc. Big Machine is killer. Here Is Gone is great. Truth Is A Whisper is awesome.

One thing I really admire about the Goo Goo Dolls is, their music has changed a bit, and become a bit more pop, but it hasn't gotten any worse. I still like some of the music off of Hold Me Up and SSCarWash the best, but there have been great songs on every album.

as is Sympathy - it's so simple, yet so powerful

I kind of like the goos, although I don't consider them to be a real rockband, more like some punk-pop-powerpop-rockband or something!

They got the speed, and sometimes the power, but it takes more then that to be a rockband in my world. Damn it, you can't categorizes them! It's so hard, I would say that the goos are the goos!!

Btw. Their early records feel like punk, now when I think about it.

According to me, best album is Gutterflower.
