Review of the Goo Goo Dolls CD Dizzy Up The Girl
by Clyde Dennis

Dizzy Up The Girl is the latest release from Goo Goo Dolls, and I can only think of one word to describe this CD... AWESOME!

Goo Goo Dolls have been a super stars in the Rock genre for quite some time now and Dizzy Up The Girl is an excellent illustration as to why.

Dizzy Up The Girl has a nicely varied, mix of 13 tracks that are very well written and brilliantly performed songs by these clearly superb musicians. With many of the songs displaying a lot of the kind emotion that makes for a really great listen. Clearly drawing from what I can only imagine are their own real life experiences. At different points touching on the most real emotions of love, heartbreak, pain, failed relationships and unattainable romance. They're all here.

Overall Dizzy Up The Girl is an outstanding release. What I call must have music. I give it two thumbs up and is most definitely a worthy addition to any Rock collection. Truly an outstanding Rock CD. One of those that is completely void of any wasted time, as each track is simply superb.

While this entire CD is really very good some of my favorites are track 4 - January Friend, track 8 - All Eyes On Me, and track 13 - Hate This Place

My Bonus Pick, and the one that got Sore [...as in "Stuck On REpeat"] is track 1 - Dizzy. It's a great track!
