AllMusic Review by

Filled with gripping guitar riffs and passionate vocals, the group Better Than Ezra packs a punch with their 1995 single Good. This is truly '90s alternative rock music at its strongest, in a decade when the alternative explosion caused a wave of interest in the United States. The material of Better Than Ezra, the threesome featuring lead vocalist/guitarist and songwriter Kevin Griffin, Tom Drummond on bass, and Cary Bonnecaze on drums, brought much excitement and interest to the alternative scene. The band's secret was their formula for beautifully woven guitar riffs, crashing drums, and sweeping basslines, not to mention their catchy harmonies. This single certainly reflects Better Than Ezra as a hardworking, goal-oriented act, looking to rise up the musical ladder of stardom. "Well maybe I'll call or write you a letter/well maybe we'll see each other on the fourth of July/well I'm not too sure and I'm not too proud/then you say it's good," proclaims singer Griffin, expressing his personality and his shyness to a secret admirer, if that rings true meaning to the song.
