Something for the Rest of Us

Goo Goo Dolls

Something for the Rest of Us

Warner Bros. Records

The Goo Goo Dolls have been a staple of popular alternative rock since their debut back in 1984.  Their music has reached countless audiences around the globe and has influenced almost as many musicians.  Something for the Rest of Us will be their ninth studio release, and with it they prove that the Goo Goo Dolls will not be slowing down soon.  It’s full of those catchy mid-tempo rock ‘n’ roll songs and power ballads the band is famous for.  While the record is noticeably less angry than the previous Goo Goo Dolls releases tended to be, it’s certainly just as dark and full of an air of sensible angst as their familiar tracks.  I’m not going to pretend like we haven’t all noticed the sad pattern most popular bands follow as they get up in years.  They lose their creative edge and begin to crank out bland, formulaic releases.  Thank God that’s not the case with Something for the Rest of Us.
