This is not the first Goo Goo Dolls complilation (more on that later), but this is the first compilation of the Goo Goo Dolls' greatest hits and best known songs. How does it stack up?

"Greatest Hits, Volume 1: The Singles" (14 tracks, 53 min.) rightfully focuses on 1998's Dizzy Up The Girl, the band's most successful album, and is represented here by 5 tracks: "Dizzy", "Slide", "Broadway", "Black Balloon", and probably the band's signature song "Iris". 2002's Gutterflower get 3 tracks here: "Here Is Gone", "Big Machine" and "Sympathy". Last year's disappointing "Let Love In" nevetherless gets 4 tracks here: the title track, "Stay With You", "Feel the Silence" (which comes in a new mix), and "Better Days". Strangely, only one track from the band's comemrcial breakout album. 1995's "A Boy Named Good" is: "Name", and it's not even the original, no, it's a newly recorded version (and inferior to the original). Why Rzeznik felt the need to do that, who knows. This compilation is rounded out by "Before It's Too Late", the Goo Goo's contribution to the "Transformers" soundtrack earlier this year.

In all, there is a lot of good music here. But this should be called the "So Far Incomplete Greatest Hits". Conspicuously missing here are "Long Way Down" from the "Boy Named Goo" album, which was a genuine radio hit (and later also appeared on the "Twister" soundtrack); "January Friend" from the "Dizzy" album; "We Are the Normal" (from the excellent "Superstar Car Wash" album, and the predecessor of "Name"); and most of all "Give a Little Bit", the Supertramp cover that eventually appeared on "Let Love In" and the band's biggest radio hit in the last 3 years. At 53 min. there clearly was room to add at least those 4 songs here as well.

The others who have reviewed this CD obviously don't know the purpose behind this CD. The CD is called "Goo Goo Dolls Greatest Hits VOLUME 1: THE SINGLES. This is a compilation of the 12 hits that cracked the Billboard Top 10 list, along with the song from the Transformers Soundtrack (Before It's Too Late) and a remix of "Feel The Silence" off their newest album, Let Love In. The band has made it very clear that the purpose of this CD was to release the most famous/newest material they have, then to release another greatest hits with all the other great songs. This way, if casual fans buy this CD and like what they hear, they will buy Volume 2, which will be full of more underground stuff.

For those of you who are casual fans (i.e those of you who immediately think "Iris" when u hear the band's name) this is the perfect compilation to start out with. For those of you who are hardcore fans, such as myself (i.e those of you know who George Tutuska is), I would simply recommend buying this CD for two reasons: 1. The remastered audio sounds great 2. Simply for the new version of "Name"

I myself think the Superstar Car Wash - A Boy Named Goo era was the greatest, but either way, this is a good compilation. If you want a great Goo Goo Dolls compilation thats a little less commercial, buy "What I Learned About Ego, Opinion, Art, and Commerce"

From all of the other reviews that I have read on this page, I am getting the idea that this album is misunderstood. It was not a "What we think are our greatest hits" album, but in fact a compilation of all of their Top 10 Hits from the AC list. That would explain the absence of some regular staples like "Long Way Down" as well as others. Most of those have already been included on a previous complilation record "What I Learned About Ego, Opinion, Art, and Commerce"
So, this album is more one for fans of the band's hits and those who do not want to purchase all of their records (I would definetly suggest you check them out anyway, their lesser known's are all just as good as the hits) Not an album for the die-hard Goo fans who have followed their career from he start.
I would definetly recommend this album for anyone who enjoys the Goo Goo Dolls they hear on the radio, these would be all of their great songs, "Iris" "Slide" "Here is Gone" "Better Days" etc. The next album they release in the spring will be one for the b-sides and covers (that's why "Give A Little Bit" is not included on this album...it is not an original work) Looking forward to the next one!

The Goo Goo Dolls are a very good band, with a charismatic front man (John Rzeznik) and his competent backing band. They have come up with better than average albums and a pretty decent selection of songs. But this "Greatest Hits" fails on several levels.

For starts, the Goo's breakout song "Name" (from A Boy Named Goo) has been re-recorded for this set. Given that it's the song that introduced most folks to the band, it's not acceptable. My guess is that The Goo's legal fights with Metal Blade over royalties may have fueled the switcheroo and led to no other "Boy tracks on this set. All albums prior to "A Boy Named Goo" are ignored, likely because What I Learned About Ego, Opinion, Art & Commerce covered that territory and the previously mentioned legal issues.

But for covering the Warner years (The Goo Goo Dolls' exclusive label after "Boy), the songs show the band evolved from the scruffy Replacement Styled roots of Superstar Car Wash to the polished BonJovi balladeering of "Iris," their biggest hit. "Better Days," the best song off Let Love In, deserved a similar fate even if radio has moved on from the band. The four major songs from the top-seller Dizzy up the Girl are here, including the magnificent "Black Balloon.
