The Goo Goo Dolls - Dizzy Up the Girl

The Goo Goo Dolls - Dizzy Up the Girl

I do have to say that this album was the beginning of the end of my love for the Goo Goo Dolls. Still a very solid album, but it begins their turn towards the slow burn ballads. There's still plenty of aggressive songs with tons of energy behind them though. "Dizzy", "Bullet Proof", "Amigone" are all good, and even the slower songs like "Black Balloon" and "Broadway" are pretty kickin'. But it was the massive hit of "Iris" and "Slide" that made the band turn away from their garage rock roots and towards safer adult alternative music.
