About this album

Dizzy Up the Girl is the sixth album by the American band The Goo Goo Dolls, released on September 22, 1998 through Warner Bros. Records. The album is often noted for being the album which propelled The Goo Goo Dolls into success, although they already had success with “Name” in 1995. In most parts of the world, Dizzy Up the Girl is the Goo Goo Dolls’ most successful album to date, selling over 3 million copies (3x platinum certified). The success of Dizzy Up the Girl can arguably be attributed to the rock ballad “Iris”, which was also included in the soundtrack album of the film City of Angels. “Iris” immediately reached #1 on the Hot 100 Airplay chart upon its release in March from the City of Angels soundtrack, and stayed on top for 18 weeks, setting a record that still stands as of September 2012. The song also reached #1 on the Billboard Modern Rock chart and the Mainstream Rock Tracks chart, along with several other charts in the U.S and U.K, and included 3 Grammy nominations. In addition to the huge success of “Iris” (US #9), Dizzy Up the Girl featured three additional top forty singles, with the songs “Slide” (US #8), “Broadway” (US #24), and “Black Balloon” (US #16). The album also produced the moderately popular song “Dizzy” (US #108), which has since become a fan favorite. Along with top forty single status, music videos for all five singles reached VH1’s Top 20 Music Videos chart upon release.

    as someone who basically only listened to punk rock in my youth, the dolls were a rare departure from the genre for me. it took me a while to get used to the change in their sound from boy named goo when this came out and i thought for the longest time it was too "soft". however as i've aged i think i've come to realize this will always be their best album overall.
