    Back In Time

    This CD of re-released material is such a great idea. Sometimes when you find a band you absolutely love and you go out and buy all their older stuff only to discove it's not really what you expected and you realize why they havn't made it big until now. Well that doesn't apply to the dolls. Everything they have done is awesome! The first four tracks are from their hugely successful "Dizzy UP the Girl" then contains four or five songs from their previous records going all the way back to their first. This way you get a feel for what they sounded like in the beginning and what they have evolved into today. At the fifth song "Naked" the style changes dramatically into punk. You can just picture them with really long hair and ripped up jeans. So,if you want to preview some of thier older material before you go get their albums I strongly recommend this CD.

    One phenomenal album

    Although it was put out to placate the thirst of hardcore Goo fans like myself who were waiting ever so patiently for the release of the next studio album, the Goo's did not fail to wow their fans with Ego, Opinion, Art and Commerce. The fact that they all but ignored their hits such as Iris, Name, Black Balloon and Slide shows to me that they belive the rest of their music is good enough to listen to, aswell. And it certainly is. The remix of Acoustic #3 is, if not better, at least as good as the original. Amigone, We Are the Normal, Naked and Girl Right Next to Me have always been some of my favorites, and I am very glad that they chose to include them in this compilation album. It also makes me happy to see some of Robbie's stuff on here, too. Johnny is a phenomenal musician and songwriter, (Especially with the strange, yet relaxing open tunings that tend to break guitar strings) but most people don't realize that Robbie was the original spotlight to the group, and I'm happy to see some of his songs on here. This album also offers something that even the hardcore fans sometimes don't even get a chance to hear: a track off of their out-of-print self-titled debut album. In short, this is not only a Goo Goo Dolls culture album, or just a learning experience, or just a phenomenal album that follows their career from 'Goo Goo Dolls' to 'Dizzy Up the Girl' and follows their evolution as a band without the distractions of their mega-hits, it is all of the above, and I wish the Goo Goo Dolls the best of luck in the future.

    Get Blown Away

    Simply amazing. A great collection of songs by the Goos. They have so much talent and are so much deeper than the Top 40 hits they've had. Be on the lookout for their next single, ''Big Machine'' from their Gutterflower CD.
