If you're buying a regular CD i think it should be "Dizzy Up The Girl" cuz it has a lot of great songs like: Slide, Broadway, Black Ballon (GREAT song!), Bullet Proof, All Eyes On me, Acoustic #3, Iris (probably their best song ever) and Hate This Place.

And I second that. It's possibly my favorite GGD song. As for Better Days, it is OK...not my favorite Goo song ever, but it's not horrible. The GGD's are one of my favorites after Bon Jovi. I would suggest for a first timer, either Dizzy Up The Girl or Gutterflower. Both are great albums. There is also a DVD that they did, Music In High Places, done in Alaska...it gives a great idea of what the guys are really like and has some great performances by them on it.

i cant belive no has mentioned their double live album cd/DVD set!!

This would definately be the best place to start of youd just getting inot the goos.. its basicly a best off, live (not like OWN at all) plus then theres the whole gig on DVD included aswell. Just wait till you see Iris live.. theres torrential rain all the way through it, amazing footage. And the director for the DVD is a certain Mr Bonjovi aswell... (no, not Jon you eijitts! the other one)

the goos are amazing and the only thing you need to get into them IMO is the live in buffalo dvd(get the concert on audio cd aswell)
its an amazing concert they are so good live.

definatly one of my fav bands johnny rzeznik is an amazing singer/frontman.
and to think he never was a singer(too shy) until the bassist from GGD told him to sing in the early days.

they were orinigally a punk band. johnny loved the sound of heavy metal guitars but never liked what heavy metal bands did with it.
so the stuff he has said he wants to create still hasn't been done.using the heavy metal sound guitars but doing something melodic with it.

the new album i heard will have hardly any ballad types like black ballon,iris,name one because he is not in that type of modd in his life now but he was back then.

johnny IMO is one of the best lyricist aswell.
black ballon,broadway,name,iris,slide,here is gone plus many many more are such great deep lyrics

I personally like the Music In High Places better. I love Live In Buffalo, but there's just something about the Alaska scenery and everything in the MIHP one that makes it special to me. And I love seeing the guys just hanging out...mudding with the local kids. It's so fun to watch. The Buffalo DVD shows how appreciative they are of their fans though. Most bands would have called it quits in weather like that, but the Goos just kept on playing!!
