Review of the Goo Goo Dolls CD Gutterflower
by Clyde Dennis

Very talented Goo Goo Dolls have released their latest album titled Gutterflower and Wow! It's really a good one.

This CD grabs your attention right out of the gate with Big Machine and won't let go until the very last note of the very last song Truth Is A Whisper, which is another great track by the way.

Gutterflower is a pleasantly varied, mix of 12 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.

If you're a Goo Goo Dolls fan this is a CD your collection flat cannot be without. In fact, this is one of those CDs that you don't even have to be a fan of lname, or even Rock to know is good. It's just good music. Period.

While this entire CD is outstanding the truly standout tunes are track 2 - Think About Me, track 9 - What Do You Need?, and track 12 - Truth Is A Whisper.

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