Even Public Enemy's Chuck D joins the fracas on the single "Kool Thing," which teeters on the brink of a cultural breakthrough but falls just shy of the mark; the same could be said of Goo itself -- by no means a sellout, it nevertheless lacks the coherence and force of the group's finest work, and the opportunity to violently rattle the mainstream cage slips by.

    Great Album

    While Goo isn't as good as Daydream Nation or Dirty, it's still awesome. You cannot beat Mote, Tunic, Mary-Christ, Kool Thing...etc there are many good songs on this album. This is a good SY album to start with, it's probably their most accessible. Highly recommended.
