Goo Goo Dolls
Four decades into their storied career, alt-rock legends Goo Goo Dolls are still discovering new and invigorating ways to make the most exciting music they’ve ever recorded. They have more accolades than can fit an industrial size trophy case & global number one’s celebrated across the globe. It’d make sense for a band of such proportions to phone things in, take a step back, or merely retreat from the spotlight. Almost paradoxically, though, they have remained at the top of their game. They’ve gone increasingly daring over the years, the music always put on a pedestal that remains untainted by all of the outside laurels the band has earned.
On their new album, Chaos in Bloom, they sound like a band more confident than ever in their sound, yet constantly looking for fresh ways to get their story across. Marking their first record ever to be produced by lead singer John Rzeznik, it’s an album of biting sarcasm, stadium-ready choruses, and spear-sharp songwriting. In short, it’s a quintessential album.
