Review of the Goo Goo Dolls CD Boy Named Goo
by Clyde Dennis

The exceptionally talented Rock group Goo Goo Dolls have released their CD entitled Boy Named Goo. I am very confident and happy to announce that I believe Goo Goo Dolls fans, and Rock fans alike will be pleased with this one. With the release of Boy Named Goo their artistic excellence is on full display as they have once again delivered a brilliant collection of tracks that could very well be their best work to date.

Boy Named Goo will grab your attention right from the beginning with Long Way Down and won't let go until the very last note of the very last song Slave Girl, which by the way is another great track.

As a group Goo Goo Dolls possess the characteristic of being able to bowl you over with their talent alone. The kind of musicians I really enjoy listening to.

If you're a Goo Goo Dolls fan this is a CD your collection flat cannot be without. In fact, this is one of those CDs that you don't even have to be a fan of lname, or even Rock to know is good. It's just good music. Period.

While the entire CD is outstanding the truly standout tunes are track 4 - Flat Top, track 11 - Eyes Wide Open, and track 13 - Slave Girl.

My Bonus Pick, and the one that got Sore [...as in "Stuck On REpeat"] is track 1 - Long Way Down. Wow!
