The Goo Goo Dolls – “Volume 2: Rarities,” spring 2008 “Greatest Hits: Volume 1” was a big letdown and as it turns out, the band had little to do with the actual album itself. Fortunately, part two is coming sometime this spring and I am anxious to hear a comprehensive collection of the Dolls’ rarities all in one place. The band has been around for 20 years and it just makes sense to release an album of B-sides at this point in their career. Still, you have to hand it to them for releasing such a stellar record in 2006 in the form of “Let Love In.” I wouldn’t count the Goo Goo Dolls out just yet.

How was GHV1 a "huge letdown"? Like, I didn't buy it and don't plan to, but it's pretty much exactly what I expected. Tongue
 
But I am really looking forward to GHV2 if it's a good compilation of material. It's been a while since they've put out anything I've been excited about buying, and I'd love to see that change...

I don't get why people had a problem with what was on GHV1 either.  The band was relatively straightforward and said it is a collection of their Top 10 songs (plus a random song that had nothing to do with anything, but whatever) and that's what it was.  I don't know why people were hoping for anything more than that.
 
And I can't wait for a tracklisting of GHV2 so I can decide if I should be excited or not.

Bah, I don't know why you guys hate Let Love In so much. It's not their best, I'll give you that, but it's better than Jed...or First Release....Or Hold Me Up....And I thoroughly enjoy those albums. *runs and hugs the entire Goo collection*

Well I guess it's a matter of opinion.  I take any of those albums - especially HMU - over LLI any day of the week.  In fact, I gave my copy of LLI away, while the others including First Release are a permanent fixture in my car, where I frequently swap them out with one another.

I don't regularly listen to FR or Jed, but I can respect them for what they are and that they made sense at the time they were made.  Jed got a lot more play when I was an angry teenager.  Cheesy
 
Hold Me Up was a HUGE leap from the albums before, but it still makes sense in the Goo timeline.  HMU does not have many of my favorite songs, but the album as a whole piece to listen to straight through will probably always be my favorite.
 
The first time I heard LLI I honestly thought I was having a nightmare (it was about 3 am) or that someone had put up the wrong songs.  After the long wait and the progression from DUTG to GF, where there was a little more rock and a lot of very believable emotion, the cliche lyrics and guitars-that-sound-like-keyboards of LLI were heart breaking.

*shrug* I suppose it's a matter of taste, and it's something we'll have to agree to disagree on.

I agree.  I wasn't arguing.  You said you didn't understand why some people dislike LLI and told us it was better than some of their albums.  And I responded with my opinion.  I'm not asking anyone to agree with me.

Oh, geeze, sorry. Embarassed Uhm, I don't know if you're on the IM, but although my subscription ran out earlier this month, towards the end there, I couldn't say anything like that without getting in a fight. Better get used to it being different, huh?
