Goo Goo Dolls Jed Rock Music CD Review
by Clyde Dennis

The exceptionally talented Rock group Goo Goo Dolls have released their CD entitled Jed. I am very confident and happy to announce that I believe Goo Goo Dolls fans, and Rock fans alike will be pleased with this one. With the release of Jed their artistic excellence is on full display as they have once again delivered a brilliant collection of tracks that could very well be their best work to date.

I wish it weren't the case but, it's not everyday that I get a CD for review that I can just pop in and comfortably listen to from beginning to end. There is usually a song or two that I just can't force myself to get through. Not at all the case with Jed. Every track is enjoyable and was pretty easy for me to listen to from start to finish.

Jed has a pleasantly varied, mix of 14 tracks that are very well written and brilliantly performed songs by these clearly superb musicians. Most of the songs display a lot of the kind emotion that makes for a really great listen. Seemingly drawing from what I can only imagine are their own real life experiences. At different points touching on the most real emotions of love, and the pain of failed relationships can certainly be heard.

Jed is a first rate CD, delivering a little something for everyone. I give it two thumbs up. It's quite simply great listening. A must buy if you're even mildly into Rock music.

While this entire album is outstanding the truly standout tunes are track 4 - 7th Of Last Month, track 7 - Down On The Corner, and track 14 - James Dean.

My Bonus Pick, and the one that got Sore [...as in "Stuck On REpeat"] is track 1 - Out Of Sight. Great track!
