After the dark themes of their previous record “Gutterflower”, the Goo Goo Dolls return with their new aptly titled release “Let Love In”. Drawing a sharp thematic contrast to their previous release, “Let Love In” has a number of ballads, showing a softer side of the Buffalo natives, including the stunning title track, and the single “Let Love In”. Both showcase why John Rzeznik is still one of the most talented lyricists today. Also noteworthy is “Feel the Silence” a slow building track that has clear hit single potential. This album continues a trend started many years ago by slowing phasing out songs sung by bassist Robby Takac, with this album featuring just two full fledged Takac sung tracks. The strongest track on the new album is by far the song “Can’t Let It Go”, with a strong hook, heart felt lyrics, and a great backing melody, this song has all the ingredients that have made so many of the past Goo Goo Dolls songs so popular. While this album may not be of the same caliber as “Dizzy Up the Girl”, it’s still a strong addition to this bands already impressive catalog.
