iTunes Review

News that Garbage had completed its fifth album came as a delightful surprise to its fans, as the techno-savvy band hadn’t released anything since Bleed Like Me in 2005. On Not Your Kind of People, the independent-minded quartet—Shirley Manson (vocals), Duke Erikson and Steve Marker (guitars, keyboards) and Butch Vig (drums, loops)—are as sharp as ever. The opening trio of songs offers a dazzling mix of attitudinal lyrics, abundant hooks and layered rhythms. The moody title track and the empathetic “Beloved Freak”, in turn, both convey the band’s quieter (yet equally dynamic) reflective side. Welcome back, Garbage.

Pick and Choose

This album is my first encounter with Garbage, and therefore I have no previous knowledge of their previous work, although I will be checking out "Garbage", and "Version 2.0" soon. This album is a bit of a neo new wave, 90's alt rock revival record, with a more modern filter. The problem is that only half of the songs on the album are worth listening to, and the other half shouldn't be bothered with. And the ones worth listening to have flaws themselves, barely overcome by what's working in the song. For instance the opener,"Automatic Systematic Habit", has a fun, upbeat, new wave influenced 90's pop sound. But it is so filled to the brim that it's hard to make out exactly what's happening clearly, and the abundance of sound only weighs down the song. Not to mention the dogy lyrics. "Lies, Lies, Lies, you love those lies!" "Lies, more lies, I can tell they're lies!". "Big Bright World" starts with a cool, bubbly, faded sounding intro which does wonders with it's atmosphere and mood, but when the song actually starts it looses that magic. "Blood for Poppies" has a swriling, bouncy, sinister sound, but the chorus is dripping in 90's bubblegum pop that it practically strips it of the compelling nature of the verses. "Control" has a fantastic pick up as it's intro fades, with this wild western horn type sound, but the rest of the song sounds quite grungey. "Not Your Kind of People" has this fantastical, twirling sound. "Felt" is arguably the best song on the record, with lush, echoey vocals, and edgy guitar pop hooks. The next three songs fail to leave any impression. "I Hate Love" with it's 90's techno dance beat, "Sugar" with it's sunken, breathy vocals, and "Battle in Me" trying to hard to sound edgy. "Man On A Wire" is the perfect Neo New Wave Punk jam. And "Beloved Freak" has a soft, uplifting caress-like feel. "The One" (the only bonus track worth checking out) is an additional new wave punk jam, reminiscent of fellow 90's band No Doubt. It has such an energy about it, that just swells, until the swirling chorus, and it just forces the question "Why was it not included in the standard version of the album?" . Overall I bought Tracks 1-6, and 10-12. Having listened to the others more than once and not planning on listening to them again any time soon. This album wasn't perfect, but was certainly a welcome return, and a great introduction to me. It reminds me a bit of Blondie's new release "Panic of Girls", especially the song "D-Day", while also reminding me of one of my favourite bands Metric (whom get compared to Garbage quite frequently, now I can see the connection).

So worth the wait!

LOVE this record! It's classic Garbage, but also new and current sounding. They have such an amazing sound, like no other. Some beautiful melodies and creepy production. Here are some of the great tracks:

4. CONTROL - great heavy garbage sound

6. FELT - another really great one

7. I HATE LOVE - this one is like a classic garbage song. Some drum loops and a fast tempo - really fun electronic sounding song

9. BATTLE IN ME - just a great lyrical song

10. MAN ON A WIRE - for the guitar riffs. wow

Any Garbage fan will LOVE this record no matter which has been their fav. Something for everyone on this set.

Best. Garbage. EVER!

You hear that? This is what speeding tickets sound like!

Flat out, this album's got traction! It isn't just a "new" album, it's their BEST. "Automatic Systematic Habit"? COME ON! This lead track is begging to be listened to while blowing through speed traps faster than lightning!

Thunderous! I want to be THEIR dirty little secret! ;)

Unless you do all of your driving in school zones, and hate rocking good music, BUY THIS RIGHT FRACKING NOW!

Get a good speed trap app while you're at it. Drive safely, people!

If you get a chance to see them perform live, DO IT!

Garbage built on the sonic landscapes of My Bloody Valentine, Curve, and Sonic Youth, adding a distinct sense of accessible pop songcraft. The band was the brainchild of producers Butch Vig, Duke Erikson, and Steve Marker, who initially held an informal jam session in Marker's basement, but they eventually recruited vocalist Shirley Manson, who had previously sung with Angelfish and Goodbye Mr. MacKenzie. Vig is a native of Viroqua, Wisconsin, who learned to play piano as a child and drums as a...
