I had been only a casual Goo Goo Dolls fan until I caught this video on UHD (DirecTV) in high-def. WOW! I was taken aback by the scenery, then the music and, to top it off - the guys themselves...they are so charming and funny, and soooo down to earth. My husband and I were so captivated, and now we own all of the GGD's CDs!
THE CINEMATIC EXPERIENCE IS SO CREATIVE AND BEAUTIFUL. THE BAND WAS SO WHOLLY "INTO" THE ENTIRE EXPERIENCE, INCLUDING "MUD-SLIDING" WITH THE NATIVE ALASKAN KIDS! IT WAS A HOOT WATCHING JOHN & ROBBY MUDSLIDING & THEY LOOKED LIKE THEY WERE HAVING AS MUCH FUN, OR MORE, THAN THE KIDS!!!
I COULDN'T FIGURE OUT HOW THEY GOT THE BAND MEMBERS ON THE GLACIERS TO PLAY "SLIDE" AND WON't RUIN IT (SO, NO SPOILER ALERT); IT'S SOMETHING THAT HAS TO BE SEEN TO BE BELIEVED!!!
I UNDERSTAND WHY A NUMBER OF REVIEWERS RECOMMEND IT WHETHER OR NOT YOU'RE A GOO GOO DOLLS' FAN...YOU CAN STILL ENJOY IT FOR THE SPECTACUILAR SCENERY. BUT, I FEEL IF YOU GET IT, YOU CAN'T HELP BUT BECOME A GOO GOO DOLLS FAN!!!
ONE OF THE MOST FABULOUS MUSIC (& SCENIC) DVD'S I'VE EVER SEEN!!!!! I GREATLY & IMMENSELY RECOMMEND IT TO ALL. IT'S "MAGNETIC" (TO BORROW THEIR NEWEST TITLE!)!!!
I'm glad that they added "You Never Know" to the extras on the DVD. I love this song and love seeing Robby Takac perform with his undeniable energy, despite what people think of his raspy voice, and rock style. You can definately still feel their punk-rock days shine through his songs.
I'm also happy to see "Sympathy" as well. I think the mandolin, and the subtle guitar strumming, brings the relatable lyrics to life. I don't think "Sympathy" could have been written any other way.
I would recommend this DVD to anyone who is a fan of this band, or anyone who liked them during the Dizzy Up The Girl era.

Wow. I love the Goos and this was just a beautiful journey. The cinematography was stunning and the stripped down versions of the songs were heartbreakingly lovely. Read morePublished 6 months ago by mandy
