Review of the Goo Goo Dolls CD Superstar Car Wash
by Clyde Dennis

Richly talented Goo Goo Dolls have released their latest album titled Superstar Car Wash and Wow! It's really a good one.

Superstar Car Wash launches with a great track, Fallin' Down, that I anticipate will be heard on radio stations everywhere, and deservedly so. It really is a very nice track.

Superstar Car Wash is a nicely varied, mix of 14 tracks that are very well written and brilliantly performed songs by these clearly gifted 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. This is just good music. Period.

While this entire album is outstanding some of my favorites are track 3 - Cuz You're Gone, track 9 - Another Second Time Around, and track 14 - So Far Away

My Bonus Pick, and the one that got Sore [...as in "Stuck On REpeat"] is track 1 - Fallin' Down. What a nice track!
