Artist discography


Was really disappointed with the first single "Rebel Beat" from Goo Goo Dolls new album Magnetic. With a little nonsense chorus and synthetic production, I thought it was a step in the wrong direction musically from the band.
So had no great expectations for the album otherwise it would be over-produced and without soul. But is actually a bit pleasantly surprised as Magnetic is a good pop / rock album after all. "Rebel Beat" is not typical of the album, which is fairly organic and free from technical toppings. Ok, I had been given the choice, I would have taken away some of synths and focused on a better drum sound, which sounds too flat. However, the band has written a good collection of tracks where "Bulletproof Angel," "Caught in the Storm" and "Last Hot Night" is the best tunes written in years. Even Robby Takac's track "Bringing on the Light" and "Happiest of Days" is really good, which we’re not directly spoiled with.
Overall, Magnetic is no masterpiece and could have sounded a bit better. But think it is a step in the right direction and that most fans will appreciate most of the songs.
