I first heard about the Goo Goo Dolls when I stumbled across the beautifully well-written 'Iris' on MTV2. I was extremely impressed by how good the song is, and bought the album on the strength of that one song alone.
When the album arrived I was impressed further with the consistent strength of all 14 tracks. Very rarely can I decide how much I like a song from hearing it just once, but I loved each song of 'Dizzy Up The Girl' from the first listen, and I’ve never looked back.
The thing that probably makes this album stand out above anything else is the pure quality of each song, on lots of albums you hear there is a couple of good songs and all the other tracks are just 'filler' to take up the space. There’s no 'filler' at all on this album, in fact I’d say that at least 10 of the 14 tracks are strong enough to be released as successful singles. The Goo's are certainly know how to write a song!
Every single track on this CD is fantastically well written and has a great catchy tune. Also the track order is spot on, the album flows beautifully from one song to the next with out any stop start moments. It all starts bright and vibrantly with 'Dizzy', before slowing things down a little with 'Acoustic #3' and building up to the climax of the Goo's master piece 'Iris', before gently ending with the heart felt 'Name'.
Overall I can't speak highly enough of this album, I’ve given it 5 out of 5, if it was out of 100 I’d give it 100, it's that good! So if you have heard one song off this album and like it but are unsure whether to buy the album, then do it. You wont regret it.
