Biography

On the day Garbage gathered in Wisconsin to start work on their fourth record, they came up with the glittering and steely "Right Between the Eyes" in all of 30 minutes. Things would not go quite so well with BLEED LIKE ME again.

The band battled illness, surgery, creative disagreements, major life changes and-depending who you ask-either a break-up or a much-needed sabbatical. ... Read more in Amazon's Garbage Store

Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

beautifulgarbage sounds much like all the other Garbage albums. When Garbage surfaced in 1995, they already sounded like a confident and mature band, mostly due to the credentials of the band's members: Butch Vig (drums) is one of rock's premier producers, having already worked on hit albums by Nirvana, Smashing Pumpkins and others, while Shirley Manson (vocals) had been performing in bands since her teens. Polished indie rock with an electronic edge, beautifulgarbage picks up where their second album (Version 2.0) ended, with a hook-laden sound that veers from the mosh pit to the dance floor, often in the same song, as crashing guitar riffs vie with synthesizers, theremins, scratching and just about all the studio toys allowed by the band's prodigious imagination, experience and budget. Shirley Manson stills vamps up her lyrics, with mixed results (didn't Blur already do "Androgyny", but better, on "Girls & Boys"?). Fortunately, there are also songs such as "Can't Cry These Tears", which admirably modernises Phil Spector's famous wall of sound and the Mazzy Star-ish "So Like a Rose", while "Cherry Lips (Go Baby Go)" updates Sly Stone's "If You Want Me to Stay" by way of synth, bass and handclaps, and is easily the album's highlight. It may not be ground-breaking stuff, but beautifulgarbage is this band doing what they do best, and doing it well. Again. --Robert Burrow

5.0 out of 5 stars Truly Untouchable 22 Jan 2008
By Fantasy Lore TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
How can this album have so few reviews? I'm astounded! I remember when I first heard a selection of tracks from the record on Radio 1 prior to its release. Quite justifiably I had expectations of something similar to `Garbage' and `Version 2.0' and so I was totally unprepared and yet very impressed by the new musical avenues Garbage chose to explore with their third studio album `Beautiful Garage', which is an album of the absolute purest grungy pop quality and easily my favourite Garbage offering to date.

This record might not be an example of Garbage at their darkest, but listening closely to the lyrics of many of the songs on this album you can tell that it's easily the most melancholy (themes of depression, suicide etc) and yet when combined with such unique instrumentation, resounding beats and rousing music the end result is something infused with a raging, positive energy and isn't in the least bit gloomy.

But then I felt it all went wrong with the tracks chosen to be released as singles and to represent this totally unique album. Track 2- `Androgyny' (8/10) was an obvious and probably a very wise choice for the initial single release- catchy, almost over-produced, but very mainstream. Where as `Shut Your Mouth' (7/10) I felt was just too obvious. It's solid, but somehow uninspired considering the exceptional variety of songs on the album. And then just when you think the record company will take a chance and prove to everyone how powerful a punch this album really packs- they go and release track 7- `Cherry Lips (Go Baby Go!)' (6/10), which is catchy, but basically fluff.

It's the experimental tracks (and the best in my opinion) that really deserved to be released.

4.0 out of 5 stars Ahoy ! The Pop Garbage! 12 Oct 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This is a pop album.If your expecting the Garbage of old you will be dissapointed.If however you approach this album with open ears you will be reworted with intelligent pop songs with strong hooks in a contemporary production.The guitars are lower in the mix this time, but the new direction makes the album more fun to listen to.Though the album is not a masterpiece-it is surely worth getting into- that is if you like spikey pop....

Format:Audio CD
how could any band possibly top the heights of version 2.0, let alone the band that recorded it. i had been waiting for years for this album to get released and its finally here and i aint disapointed. Shut your mouth would give the illusion that the album was going to be more of the same but from the first chords of androgyny, its obvious that we are on an entirely different journey. Cant cry these tears is simply not what i would have called a garbage song but i find it to be quite possibly the best track from the album. Cant wait to here it live. in conclusion dont be fooled into thinking that because you have the first two albums, that there aint no need to get this because trust me this one is different, but in a hugely positive way, if proof is needed just listen to silence is golden !!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Third time lucky for Garbage 6 Oct 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
The third Garbage album contains all the hallmarks you would expect - pumping electronica, wailing guitars, samples played backwards - and yet it trancends their previous work. Manson's vocals seem to have more breadth than anything she has previously recorded - from the whispery 'So Like a Rose' to the shouty ending of 'Silence is Golden' and everything in between. What the previous album (Version 2.0) lacked was a few delicate tracks, something Garbage handled so well on their debut album with 'Milk'. This new collection has several slower moments - the gem being an absolute masterpiece of a track with 'Cup of Coffee', a haunting tune concerning rejection. The usual up-tempo rock-pop tunes are here as well - 'Shut Your Mouth', 'Untouchable' et al. Varied and quite brilliant!

5.0 out of 5 stars the band's best yet - by far ! 20 Sep 2001
Format:Audio CD
This album is without doubt the band's best yet !(and I consider the previous album to be full of top quality songs) The content is brilliantly well balanced "Shut Your Mouth" -strong punchy opener, "Androgyny" staccatto start -leading to a must-play-again chorus, "Cup Of Coffee" (my favourite track)-gorgeously sad ballad -Shirley has searched her very soul to produce these achingly moving lyrics. "Cherry Lips (Go Baby Go)" happy-go-lucky number. "Untouchable" -tango-style with a wonderful back beat to it and the last track -"So Like A Rose " -again Shirley has come up with some powerful lyrics -this one's about the death of a child. If you like any of garbage's previous work -you will adore this one -a must buy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Their worst album, but still brilliant 28 Aug 2005
Format:Audio CD
I was very undecided about this album and the direction the band had taken with it at first and indeed, for a rather long time. However, I now appreciate it for what it is, which is a great pop record.
First off though, there are a couple of tracks that do nothing for me. Opener Shut Your Mouth sounds slightly forced and the lyrics are pretty weak.
Also, Untouchable is just terrible. The wah-wah effect used in the chorus just makes me cringe.
Apart from that, there are some excellent moments on here, such as the brilliant 'Cherry Lips (Go Baby Go!)', the funky 80's groove of 'Till The Day I Die' and the moving 'Drive You Home'.
'Can't Cry These Tears' is also a song of note. Shirley uses a falsetto vocal for the first time, and it sounds like it could've come out of a musical. Still, it's oddly compelling.
Ultimately though, it's Garbage's worst album to date. That may make it sound bad, but it's only because the other albums are so damn good.
