Goo Goo Dolls
Something For The Rest Of Us
If their previous trio of albums weren't enough of an indication, Something For The Rest Of Us proves once and for all that the brash and hungry Goo Goo Dolls of albums like Superstar Car Wash and A Boy Named Goo are long gone. Ever since "Name" put them on the mainstream map and "Iris" launched them into the stratosphere, the Goo Goo Dolls shed the last remaining punk energy they had, perfectly content with releasing a new batch of serviceable mid-tempo pop-rock songs every four years or so. There's nothing inherently wrong with that (especially when John Rzeznik's songwriting remains a step above that of many of his AAA peers), but things bottomed out in 2006 with the overproduced and energy-deficient Let Love In.
