5.0 out of 5 stars Goo Goo Dolls Classics April 5 2014
By Stella Carrier TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
Around 2-3 months ago,I spotted the Greatest Hits Vol. 1 by the Goo Goo Dolls at my Walmart job and purchased it due to it being just five dollars. This collection contains many of the songs that I am familiar with from my high school years (yes, I am showing my age). Slide is probably my favorite song from this collection. However, there is a song to enjoy for many people who like listening to 90’s alternative rock.

5.0 out of 5 stars Goo Goo Dolls Very Very Fabulous Aug. 24 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I knew a few of their songs before I purchased the CD - what I didn't know is that I LOVED all their songs on this CD - I will play it in my car for weeks on end and NEVER tire of it - owning one Goo Goo Doll CD just makes you hungry for MORE!!!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars The So Far Incomplete Greatest Hits Nov. 12 2007
By Paul Allaer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
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.

In 2001, the band released a terrific but under-the-radar compilation called "What I Learned About Ego, Opinion, Art and Commerce", a hard charging and rocking collection of the band's first 6 albums up to that point (minus the hits like "Name", "Slide", "Black Balloon" etc.). It was a terrific way of showcasing the band's bar-punk-rock origins. I have no problem with the band evolving into a (mostly) power-ballad band but let's not forget the other facet of the band's sound either. In all, "Greatest Hits: Volume 1" is not bad, but could have been better. "Volume 2" is supposedly on the way for Spring 2008, focusing on the band's B-sides, one-offs and other oddities and rarities.

4.0 out of 5 stars Volume 1. I Repeat. Volume 1 Nov. 13 2007
By A. Rinear - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
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"

5.0 out of 5 stars Misunderstanding perhaps... Nov. 20 2007
By A. Kummer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
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!

3.0 out of 5 stars Goo Goo Boo Boo Sept. 10 2008
By Tim Brough - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
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."

Missing in action would be a couple of the band's great covers (Tom Petty's "American Girl," Supertramp's "Give a Little Bit") that would have made nice bonus tracks, given the skimpiness of the listings. For the fans of this late 90's and early 00's sound (think The Gin Blossoms or Toad The Wet Sprocket), this Greatest Hits of The Goo Goo Dolls falls far short of what it could have been.

3.0 out of 5 stars missing a couple of favorites Nov. 12 2007
By Garrett W. Amyot - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
would've gotten a 5 but where's "Long Way Down," "Only One," "Naked," "Lazy Eye," and "Give a Little Bit???"

i can understand the lack of Superstar Carwash songs, you can get "Ego..." for those and everything before that.

but the songs that are on here are all awesome and glad they included the Transformers Soundtrack song but honestly, it needs "Give a Little Bit" and "Long Way Down!"

**Edit**
i understand that this is only vol. 1. i thought vol. 2 was going to be b-sides, etc. which in my opinion they should've just released a double cd with all the hits / singles on disc 1 and then disc 2 could've been rarer b-sides / etc.
