Goo Goo Dolls - A Boy Named Goo

A Boy Named Goo is a perfect piece of 1990s paraphernalia. Say what you will about the way in which the Goo Goo Dolls went all weepy balladeer after this album (mainly because of the success of "Name") but this album occupies the perfect place in 90s alternative. It's corporate enough to be radio friendly and yet edgy enough to not completely suck. I do have a nostalgic memory of this album as well as a memory of some controversy about the cover art (implied infant cannibalism) but can't find information online about it anywhere.
