Looking back on the past can be easier than looking ahead to the future, according to the Goo Goo Dolls' lead singer/songwriter, Johnny Rzeznik. So, to whet people's appetite for the rock band's next studio album, the Goo Goo Dolls have gone through their back pages to offer What I Learned About Ego,
Opinion, Art & Commerce (1987-2000)

- a collection of the trio's favorite previously recorded songs that weren't hit singles. Due Tuesday (29) in the U.S. from Warner Bros., the album features 22 remastered tracks, with some of those remixed to boot.

Listening to Ego is like listening to a musical scrapbook of the Goo Goo Dolls. It's a noteworthy chronicle of the band's evolution from a bar band playing gritty, post-punk music to a multi-platinum act with a more melodic, mature sound.

Rzeznik says that choosing the album's songs was easy for the band, which also includes bassist Robby Takac and drummer Mike Malinin. "We just picked out the songs we liked the best," Rzeznik notes. "It was fun to look back on how we were. We laughed a lot just listening to some of the old studio tapes and remembering some of the outtakes. We were just kids when we started."
