Better Days

I’m late to The Goo Goo Dolls’ bandwagon and what I have heard so far from their Let Love In album has simply blown me away.

Lead singer Johnny Rzeznik wears his heart out on his sleeves and bares his emotions for the world to see. His raspy, slightly raw and imperfect voice is brilliant for the album of songs about lost love, pensive thoughts and hope. It lacks the slickness of most modern singers (think Justin Timberlake) and comes across as sincere and even emotionally searing.

It feels a little like Rob Thomas of Matchbox Twenty and Gary Lightbody of Snow Patrol but less smooth and with a rock style that’s distinctive.

So almost eight months after falling in love with Snow Patrol’s Chasing Cars (I am particularly smug that we uncovered the song back in June 2006, way before it became a “hit” gaah!), here’s a beautiful, heartfelt song from The Goo Goo Dolls titled “Better Days”.

  1. I have to agree with you.
    I’ve loved Goo Goo Dolls forever!
    The older albums like Dizzy up the girl and Gutterflower are really good too!
