The Goo Goo Dolls toiled for 12 years and five albums before the heartworn ballad Iris turned them into one of the biggest American bands of the late 90s. Goo Goo Dolls started off as disciples of cult Minneapolis rockers the Replacements and supported them on their final US tour. The end result was as careworn and bittersweet as a latter-period Replacements classic. It was only after A Boy Named Goo went double-platinum in the US that the band discovered they had signed a contract that entitled them to no royalties. From the swooning strings that punctuate its chorus to the arty black and white video that accompanied it, Black Balloon served more compulsive notice that the Goo Goo Dolls had definitively stepped up from being ragged alt-rock contenders and into the major leagues. Tucked away towards the end of Dizzy Up The Girl and its secret weapon, the hushed, haunted verses of All Eyes On Me crack open one, twice, three times into the sort of wraparound chorus that runs to a boundless horizon seen from the perspective of a convertible with the top down. Rzeznick is a route-one songwriter for sure, but at his best, and as here, his ultimate destination is an altogether bracing one.
