Garbage return with their long-awaited fourth studio album, "Bleed Like Me", the follow up to 2001's "Beautiful Garbage", which, despite earning a wealth of critical acclaim, left a lot of fans cold, and hoping for more of what "Garbage" and "Version 2.0" had to offer. This new offering is something different (as ever with a Garbage album). "Bleed Like Me" focuses on crunching guitars and heavy basslines, with the superb "Metal Heart" and "Boys Wanna Fight" being the only tracks that feature the twisted, textured electronics that enhanced 1998's "Version 2.0".
"Bad Boyfriend" is the menacing opener and sets the tone for the rest of the album. Grinding guitars set around "one of the simplest tunes they've ever done"; as Duke puts it, work well with Shirley's direct lyrics and dirty vocals, reminiscent of the band's 1995 debut. The manic drumming in the middle of the song comes courtesy of Dave Grohl, as everybody knows. A fantastic song and a brilliant, refreshing opener.
"Run Baby Run" starts as a sweet pop song, but turns in to a jilty rocker on the chorus, and takes an unexpected twist at the end, where the track becomes quite jittery. I love the lyrics in the chorus, and this is a possible contender for a single.
"Right Between The Eyes" is apparently about Courtney Love. I love the lyrics in this track especially. Shirley has never cared what anybody thinks, and it shows in the fantastic lyrical content. There is not much of a chorus to the song, but my favourite part is where Shirley sings "there's nothing grander than the big surprise", which, as many have pointed out, is reminiscent of Hole's "Malibu".
"Why Do You Love Me" is by far the rockiest track on the album, closely followed by the grimacing "Bad Boyfriend".

My wife has recently turned me into a Garbage fan, so I don't have a lot of history with the band. I definitely have liked what I have heard, though, so I checked out Bleed Like Me and it is a fantastic CD. Shirley Manson's vocals are blistering when necessary, soft when appropriate, and sometimes enhanced for greater effect. The distortion given to it in "Why Do You Love Me" when she accuses her lover of sleeping with a friend of hers really adds to the torn feeling she obviously has, being in love with this man yet angry that he's cheating on her.
The CD really rocks, with the occasional rock ballad to give variety. The songs touch on the foibles of relationships as well as society ("Sex is not the Enemy" and "Bleed Like Me" being the most prominent societal comment). "Bleed Like Me" gives us numerous examples of what society would consider deviants (a cutter, a bulimic, a young man confused by not just his orientation but his gender, and a girl suffering from horrible depression) and tells us a little about them, then asking us to understand them ("Try to comprehend that which you'll never comprehend"). It's probably my favourite song on the CD.
Others are equally as good, mostly the ones to do with troubled relationships ("Why Do You Love Me," "It's All Over But the Crying," and "Happy Home" being most effective). I'm not as big a fan of the harder songs, but the up-tempo music grips you and won't let you go and Manson's vocals tear into you. While the music is great, Manson is the main attraction for me. Her voice, which adapts for whatever she needs it to do, is very striking and she demonstrates that beautifully on this CD.
This is a great CD.

They might have been away for the last four years, they might have also almost disintigrated in that time as well, but from opener track 'Bad Boyfriend' the flame haired Scottish singer Shirley Manson announces that she and her band are indeed back.
Featuring Foo Fighter mainman/ex Nirvana drummer Dave Grohl on the drums, this track shows just how chameleon like Shirley Manson can be, sounding at times like PJ Harvey. The next two tracks the California sunshine strummer 'Run Baby Run' and steely 'Right Between The Eyes' come at you with wall to wall guitars ~ this is Garbage 2005. Excellent first single 'Why Do You Love Me' hits in just before the bittersweet 'Bleed Like Me' slows down the pace.
Those missing Garbage's previous electronics might find solace in the cold beeps and Marilyn Manson-inspired feedbacks of political rant 'Metal Heart'. The guitars come slashing back to the front in 'Sex Is Not The Enemy' with it's bass-line nicked straight from The Breeders. Garbage have always been as good at doing ballads as the have been doign full out rockers, and on here 'Over But The Crying' proves that. A delicate, piano-led number, Shirley claims she's fed up with forging on with a doomed relationship. And you beleive her.
New wave 80's pop rears it's head on the schizo 'Boys Wanna Fight' while Shirley Manson's desperate lyrics claw for company. 'Why Don't You Come Over' is maybe the album's only real trough, a song that just sounds aneamic compared to the others. Garbage like to finish their records with mid-tempo tunes, and Bleed Like Me is no exception, closing here with 'Happy Home', a bruising yet beautiful song about freedom and future.
The band sound impossibly up-to-date on this record, having dumped the 60's, 70's and 80's sounds of previous records.
