Album Review

"Name" changed the game for the Goo Goo Dolls. Prior to that unexpected hit ballad, the Buffalo trio was pretty much content to turn out amiably sloppy rock & roll in the style of the Replacements. Like the latter-day 'Mats, they weren't adverse to cleaning up their sound a little bit, but once they had a hit, they were happy to jump headfirst into the mainstream, cleaning up their rockers until they shone and embracing acoustic power ballads instead of shunning them. In fact, "Iris" — their contribution to the City of Angels soundtrack and lead single for their sixth album, Dizzy Up the Girl — is a virtual rewrite of "Name." The funny thing is, where most college rock bands of the Bush era sounded awkward as mainstream rockers, the Goo Goo Dolls actually sound better as a mainstream band, partially because they were hardly underground in the first place. Like a less mannered and conflicted Let Your Dim Light Shine-era Soul Asylum, the trio balances hard rockers with ballads. The difference is, they enjoy the mainstreaming of their music and respond with one of their catchiest sets of songs. There's nothing new on the record apart from their willingness to polish their music so it reaches the widest audience. That will alienate whatever hardcore followers they have left, but that attitude will likely please anyone brought aboard with "Name" and "Iris."

Customer Reviews

The best album

This is by far the goo's best album. The first 3 songs were all chart toppers, and there at least 5 different songs on this album that hit the charts. This is true goo goo doll tallent right here. The first album I listened to by them, and still my favorite today.

WoW this album brought back the summer of 98'

This album brought back memories the summer of 98' schools out, chillin' with your friends, lifeguard summer job, and mobbin' in my wangler with the top down.

A GREAT 90's rock album!

This is one of my favorites of the 90's! The lyrics have a great message, and combine that with Rzenik's singing and all of the other wonderful instruments, and you have a solid A+ rock album. My favorites are "Iris" and "Slide". I also recommend that you buy "slide from here instead of the greatest hits, because it's only 99 cents here.

Biography

Formed: 1985 in Buffalo, NY

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '80s, '90s, '00s, '10s

Early in their career, the Goo Goo Dolls were frequently dismissed by critics as mere imitators of the Replacements; however, they refined and mainstreamed their sound to become one of the most popular adult alternative rock bands of the 1990s, selling millions of records to audiences largely unfamiliar with their influences. That's no knock on the band, either — the music simply improved in craft and accessibility as the years progressed, and radio happened to be receptive to a style that,...
