The Goo Goo Dolls are back, and they are definitely leaving Something for the Rest of Us. An alternative-rock group composed of three members, the Goo Goo Dolls deliver on their highly-anticipated album with more than 10 songs. The band’s past success, which began in Buffalo, N.Y., in the mid-1980s, does not undermine their passion to continue producing new music, writing memorable songs or touring. Something for the Rest of Us is an indicator of that.

Every track on the new release is ebulliently masterful, especially because of the lyrics and instruments. “As I Am,” “One Night,” “Hey Ya” and “Soldier” are mandatory to listen to. Additionally, “Sweetest Lie,” “Notbroken” and “Still Your Song” remind you of good, happy times.

Love, inspiration, belief, memories and invincibility describe this CD. Something for the Rest of Us is epic in every way imaginable, particularly with John Rzeznik’s distinct lead vocals.
