  • Summary: Believe it or not, these guys have been around for over 15 years now, and this is their eighth release (and first since 1998's 'Dizzy Up The Girl').

  1. Gutterflower will undoubtedly take the Goo Goo Dolls to greater success, and deservedly so, such is it's quality and consistency.
  2. 80
    The CD unfurls a ragged blend of infectious melodies, couched in brisk tempos, and shimmering ballads culled from the blueprint of such past hits as "Name" and "Iris."
  3. A good, professional rock record, one that sells their sound as if it was as the most commercial imaginable, resulting in one of their most consistent albums.
  4. Gutterflower proves once again that they are masters at crafting instantly appealing pop songs.
  5. 60
    Gutterflower, for better or worse, is a perfectly executed encapsulation of the unexciting state of mainstream rock in 2002. [Jun/Jul 2002, p.108]
  6. There's still a whiff of contrivance about it that spoils the good work. [May 2002, p.112]
  7. Headed for a prom near you... it's the Goo Goo Dolls.
