Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Imagine an unsoiled, slicked-up Replacements with radio-friendly vocals, and you'll understand the insta-thrills and boundless potential of this Buffalo trio's major label debut. "Fallin' Down" and the anthemic "We Are the Normal" spearhead a great power-pop album. --Jeff Bateman

5.0 out of 5 stars Buy. This. Now. July 13, 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Alright. I'll admit it. I'm a 14 year old girl. I was once one of the N*SYNC-worshipping teeny boppers drawn to the Goo Goo Dolls by "Name" and "Iris". So I bought Dizzy Up The Girl. And I loved it...and realized there is world beyond overproduced, overcommericialized, bubblegum pop. After this sudden exposure to actual music, I promptly threw out the trash I had been listening to (N*SYNC, BSB, Britney Spears, I am SO ASHAMED...) and started re-building my CD collection. One day, a friend of mine gave me SuperstarCarWash as a birthday gift.
Now, I know that Dizzy Up The Girl is a bit more poppy-sounding and not as punk as the Goo's earlier stuff. So when I popped this into my CD player, I wasn't really sure what to expect...would this be more Jed or DUTG?
I was blown away.
This is an incredible CD...It should have been MORE successful than Dizzy Up The Girl. The quality of the music is incredible...It's littered with articulate, passionate lyrics, impossibly catchy hooks, and some of the most challenging guitar solos EVER. This is probably the only CD I can put in my CD player and not have to press the skip button once.
The diversity of this album is great, too. For those of you who don't know, the Goo Goo Dolls bass player, Robby Takac, also writes and sings for the band. For some reason, his songs are never released as singles. Some people don't listen to his songs, most likely because they get too used to John's crooning and when Robby's high, raspy voice comes on don't want to take the time to appreciate it. When John writes, he tends to go in all directions...anything from anthemic power pop to acoustic ballads to hard edged, give-em-the-middle-finger punk. Robby tends to stay closer to one style-- fast paced, bouncy punk.

5.0 out of 5 stars the goo goo dolls in their purest form February 5, 2000
Format:Audio CD
kinda like when they were still diamonds in the rough, the goo goo dolls had very good music. this cd is, in my opinion, their best work ever.
i really like the guitar work on this album. it is especially good on the track 'stop the world', which may not have been all that great without it. as usual, john rzeznik's vocals are exceptional, robby's falling short again. the one song that they didn't write on this recording, 'we are the normal', is a very powerful and realistic song about life and death. other songs that i like are 'string of lies'(a very interesting duet between john and robby) 'cuz you're gone' (because 'you diconnect yourself from it all because you know that you're so beautiful and so untouchable' is such a great line) 'so far away' (very good vocals by john) and 'domino' (actually sung by robby, but very good backgrounds by john)
this is my favorite band in the world in their best form. i know the goo goo dolls for this music, and i hope that others may come to know them for this, also.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Superstar Car Wash" cleans up the act... March 2, 2000
By jordan
Format:Audio CD
"Superstar Car Wash" the fourth major album from the simply fabulous Goo Goo Dolls, is one of their best! It contains such incredible music and is truly a spectrum of tastes. The band's diversity is really seen in the musicality of this album, ranging from the modern rock "Fallin' Down" to the louder stylings of "Stop the World" to the simply beautiful, "We are the Normal" - really one of their best songs, ever! (The album is worth it just for that one.) "Iris", and "Black Balloon" lovers are sure to be pleased with SCW. Truly a measure of the band's musical maturity, "Superstar Car Wash" takes Goo Goo Doll fans from "Hold Me Up" (the previous album) and into the famous "A Boy Named Goo" (the album that spawned the radio hit "Name"). This was an important album in the band's history and a major staple of a fan's collection. The songs have become increasingly layered with various music textures and harmonies; lyrics have become more candid and soul-revealing; and the stars that we know today were just Buffalo boys, waiting for a "wash" in success.

5.0 out of 5 stars an absolute must-have September 9, 2005
Format:Audio CD
First off, I will bluntly say it: I love this album. I bought it in backtrack to get to know some of the Goos' older ablums before their new one was released and was far from disappointed. It is one of my favorite albums of all time. Don't get me wrong, I like their newer albums, too, but I really love this one.

Something about this album just makes me so happy. The music is well played and written and just...wow. I love it. And now, for a few reviews of some of the songs on there.

Fallin' Down is a great way to start off the album. It really gets you into it instantly, with a catchy hooky ("Do you know, where you want to go") and great music all around.

Lucky Star is a song I always enjoy listening to. I always find it interesting to hear Robby, the bass player's, voice because none of his songs make it to the radio. It's almost as if someone's singing you a secret the mainstream hasn't heard. The song wasn't what I thought it would be from my first impression of the title, but I'm quite fond of it now.

Cuz You're Gone is amazing. I love this song. I can just listen to it over and over again. It makes me just ecstatic. There's this one line in it I just adore that sends chills up my back every time I hear it ("Cuz you know that you're so beautiful and so untouchable"). It ends beautifully ("Yeah you're gone and I wish you'd come back"), also.

Girl Right Next To Me is awesome. I can't really describe what I like about it, I guess you'd just have to hear it for yourself to understand.

We Are The Normal is an amazing song. I love how it starts off musically, with soft string instruments for about 30 seconds then out into a full-out guitar rock. The lyrics are wonderful and true and make you think about your place in the world.
