Stand out with these 3 summer looks!
GOO GOO DOLLS
A good effort, but the album does not live up to its title.
WHO could ever forget the hit song Iris by the Goo Goo Dolls? The American alternative rock band are renowned for this commercially successful single as it blew people away and up until today, it is a timeless classic.
So, it is a bit disappointing when you compare their latest and 10th studio album, Magnetic, to the band’s previous stuff, which completely mesmerised us.
Magnetic it certainly isn’t.
In fact, the songs are mediocre and there aren’t many tracks that jump out at you.
Fans of the Goo Goo Dolls will recognise that the band have opted for a different approach with this album.
Their sound is a lot more mellow and there are very few upbeat tracks. Stand outs are Rebel Beat and When the World Breaks Your Heart.
These songs represent the familiar good-feel beat that the band is known for. All-in-all, Magnetic can be described as a good album, not a great one.
This compilation is not up to scratch and fans of the two-time Grammy-nominated band will sense the lack of high calibre that is expected from this well-loved rocker group. –Valencia Govindasamy
