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

Product Description

Fifth studio album by the alternative rock group, and their first since 2005's 'Bleed Like Me'. The album was preceded by international lead single 'Blood for Poppies' and also contains 'Battle in Me', 'Automatic Systematic Habit' and 'Big Bright World'.

BBC Review

Formed in 1994, Garbage delivered consistently anthemic electronic rock that occupied airwaves with conspicuous ease in the mid-to-late-90s. The singles Special, Queer and Stupid Girl brought phenomenal success, though they never quite shrugged the impression that they were Butch Vig’s (producer of Nevermind) band of session musicians, despite singer Shirley Manson looking the very epitome of a pop icon. Their run ended in 2005 as they declared a hiatus, amid complaints of their label treating them as a commodity.

It is the opportunity to self-release that has brought about this, their fifth album. Recording in LA for the first time, there’s no discernible difference to the band’s sound; Garbage have returned pretty much exactly as they left. Which could be seen as disappointing, given Manson’s past claim that she was sick of "the loops and the electronics and the guitars", so much so that in 2006 she worked with The Blue Nile's Paul Buchanan on an unlikely-to-ever-be-released solo record.

But Not Your Kind of People quickly makes its mark, with Automatic Systematic Habit strutting into focus with Vocoder vocals and Rolling Stones-aping riffs, while Control conjures the unlikely parallel of The Smiths on steroids. Both demonstrate the joyful abandonment in surrendering yourself to sing-along industrial pop angst.

As with 2005’s Bleed Like Me album, guitars are to the fore. Blood for Poppies should be occupying drive-time playlists as effectively as anything they’ve done in the past, with calculated (albeit fairly nonsensical) vocals: "I don't know why they are calling on the radio." The song also establishes fresh rock'n'roll priorities: "I miss my dog / and I miss my freedom."

Manson denies Garbage succumbed to the recent trend of reunions, but that is exactly what this is. Following her stint acting in TV’s Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, that show’s loss is our gain. There are misses: the title track is as forgettable as their theme tune to a particularly unremarkable Bond film (The World is Not Enough), while the bitter I Hate Love should have been left scrawled on the toilet wall.

But despite occasional lapses into overproduced mess, the surprise here is their enthusiasm. It might be business as usual compositionally, and public demand for another Garbage album was questionable; but this set will stir interest in both fans and casual listeners alike.

4.0 out of 5 stars GARBAGE - NOT YOUR KIND OF PEOPLE 14 May 2012
By nin/ja77 TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
It's been seven years since Garbage released their last studio album 2005's "Bleed Like Me", in that same year the band ended a world tour abruptly that saw the band cancel the end of their tour and go on an indefinite hiatus, it seemed the band had reached the end of the road as they were sick of record label interference, life on the road and sick of the sight of each other, after all this is a band that always had a fiery relationship with each other that had seen many a studio bust up. So as lead singer Shirley Manson went off to make a solo album (which has never been released) as well as star in the TV series Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles and drummer Butch Vig went back to producing albums it seemed unlikely Garbage would end their hiatus. Thankfully that all changed as the band regrouped and confirmed work had begun on a new album that would be released on their own STUNVOLUME label, it seemed that working without a major label suited the band and that they were all getting on and (whisper it quietly) having fun working together again. So finally we have studio album number five "Not Your Kind Of People" an album which features all the hallmarks of Garbage's signature sound of a rock/pop fusion.

The album starts off with "Automatic Systematic Habit" which is a disco filled rock song that has Manson saying she won't be anybody's "Dirty Little Secret", the song has a big pounding beat and some distorted vocals; it's a great way to kick off the album. "Big Bright World" is reminiscent of the Version 2.0 era with its slow build up before exploding into life.

I was fearing disappointment with this album as with so many "reformations" of great bands, but I needn't have worried - Manson is still in fine voice - possibly the finest female rock voice currently making records? - and the playing is as outstanding as you would expect from performers of their pedigree. And the songs? - well after the "trying too hard" poppy opening track, Automatic System Habit, the songs are really strong, both musically and lyrically, right through to the end of the extra tracks on the deluxe version which are certainly not fillers. So its very much worth buying the deluxe version.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the coolest bands get their groove back 2 Sep 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
After what felt like a very long seven year hiatus, this award-winning alt-rock four piece are back and can I say, I'm so happy they chose to return. NYKOP is a confident, loud, imaginative and very catchy return to form following their mixed bag Bleed Like Me album, and it's clear from the start this was a band very much enjoying being back in the studio and jamming with one another again. The album has echoes of their first and second albums mostly, with some of the more mainstream diversions of their third. Of the several anthemic tracks I most like 'Automatic Systematic Habit', 'Blood For Poppies', 'Control' and 'Man On A Wire' but there really isn't any filler here - even on this extended 'deluxe edition', which contains the excellent 'The One' and 'Show Me'. Lead singer Shirley Manson's vocals sound better than ever and she continues to be from this example one of the best personalities in modern rock music.

Some reviews have remarked on bad mastering and all I can say is there must've been a few dodgy CDs produced as I experienced none of this. Garbage's sound can occasionally be a bit over-produced (they love to experiment with many different samples, sounds, distorted vocals as well as traditional guitars and drums...) so to the uninitiated it might take a bit of getting used to ... but if you do 'get it' you'll fall in love with them as I have done.

A must buy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Garbage are back!! 14 May 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Garbage are back!!!..and raring to go!! Having been a fan since the beginning I obviously couldn't wait for this and I am not disappointed in the slightest!

The opening track 'Automatic Systematic Habit' is an electro rocker which is one of my favourites and was also amazing live, which then goes into the ever so uplifting 'Big Bright World', other stand out tracks for me are 'Control' which is a dark heavy number which has an awesome chorus, as well as 'Battle in Me' which has some of their most aggressive guitar work to date!... that packed with the wonderfully dancey 'I Hate Love' which grooves a long with a lovely uplifting chorus. We also have some slower songs that we are accustomed to from Garbage such as 'Sugar' and the 70s retro vibe of the title track 'Not Your Kind Of People'.

If you loved the energy of the first two albums you will find something here for you.

This truely is some of their best work and I hope it attracts some new fans as well as pleasing us darklings!

3.0 out of 5 stars A solid album let down by sound quality. 8 Sep 2012
By Ross
Format:Audio CD
I've always been a fan of the band and remember being blown away by how good their debut was in the mid-nineties, so I was really excited to hear that they were returning after seven years away.

This album offers some of their best songs to date, with Control, Sugar and Battle In Me being particular highlights. Like with many albums there are some that'll have you reaching for the skip button so as a collection it's a four-star album; Garbage fans will lap this up.

However, the sound quality of the recordings is what ultimately knocks off a star. It's so heavily compressed and distorted that in places it sounds quite harsh. I'm not a sound-engineer nor have I experience in the mixing room but, at the risk of sounding a bit of an audio-snob, it's pretty obvious even to the untrained ear that dynamic range has been sacrificed for loudness.

Nevertheless, it's good to see the band back in action after seven years.
