Well, when you release an album, you'll be able to be Mr Original.

Woot, new album sounds good. I still need to pick up some of their older albums, shockingly I only have Guttermouth.

My god, the old you can't make an album so don't critize....they put the album out to public where it is up for judgement by all. So im alowed to critize and make judgement on there ability to name an album. Just as much as you are alowed to make a judgement on how much they rock or something along those lines.

I can't stand the Goo Goo Dolls, but that's just my opinion.

All this new stuff sounds a bit 'Goo Goo Dolls-by-numbers' to me, if that makes ay sense to anyone.

It's all a bit familiar and formulaic.

Alright. I got the cd.

It's pretty good, I really like it. I would say I don't feel like all the songs are completely different, but the cd is solid I must say.

I just wish someone would tell the base player to stop singing. I think his name is Robbie?
He's horrible, writes horrible lyrics, and his singing is really annoying.

Some of my fav's:
Let love in
Feel the silence
Can't let it go

Abe, I see what you mean. No real new formula to writing a song. They almost have something absolutely stunning, using a synthesizer(I think) in let love in. If you ask me, GGD would be stupendous if they made the guitars a little more distorted and pronounced. Johnny has a great voice and lyrics, just needs more of a music backing sometimes.

This might sound a little weird, but this cd may be the same vibe we get from tom delonge's new band angels and airwaves.

Good cd, same theory on most songs but nothing absolutely amazing. And the lyrics are easy to relate to.

K i've been working on this and need feeback on this before i submit it.

Let Love In - Goo Goo Dolls

G5
e c g d a E

F5

So pretty much just open power chords, just kind of a finger picking type of opening and verse, havn't figured that out exactly, but the chords sound right


Verse sample:

A5
And I know you're so much more

C5
Everything they ignore

G5......................F5
Is all I need to see


Chorus sample:

A5
And you're the only thing I've ever beleived in

C5
The Answer that could never be found

G5............................................F5
The moment you decided to let love it


So yeah lemme know what you think

I think the Goo Goo Dolls are the furthest thing from indie I can think of.

GGD are awesome, I gotta get their CD. I listened to "Let Love In" and that was awesome.

just wish someone would tell the base player to stop singing. I think his name is Robbie? He's horrible, writes horrible lyrics, and his singing is really annoying.


Gosh I know what you mean... I hate his voice. It gets on my nerves man! I don't know about the songs he writes, but the voice just plain sucks. I don't know his name but yeah I think its something like that.
"1456"... if you're reading this, you know what the code means, and i mean every word of it.... 1456!!!

^It's Robbie Takac (or Tacak)

I don't mind some of his songs, I think there was one on Gutterflower that I quite liked.
