This is a good album, exactly what you’d expect and want from a Goo Goo Dolls album. This one came up after watching the penultimate episode of Shrinking, where the teenager asked what a Goo Goo Doll even is. It’s still a great question. I don’t think this particularly stands out and ultimately isn’t going to make a top ten list, but it’s a good listen and nice to have on in the background.

Rating: 3 / 5
