Being a great Goo Goo Dolls fan, I can say this album; A Boy Named Goo does the band justice! If you are looking for a good rock album, this is the one. The songs on this album are not as rock/pop orientated as the ones in Dizzy Up the Girl, and are definitely more original and less "manufactured". If you haven't got anything from the Goo Goo Dolls yet, I think you will appreciate them more if you brought A Boy Named Goo first, as this album captures what the band is really about.Don't get me wrong, Dizzy Up The Girl is also a very good album, but not as captivating as A Boy Named Goo. My favorite songs are "Naked", "Name" and "Burnin' Up".I garuantee none of the songs will let you down with their meaningful lyrics and catchy tunes! A truly brilliant album!
