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'. This deluxe edition also includes four bonus tracks.

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.

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.

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.

Garbage have been composing accessible and highly infectious Pop infused Rock and Grunge since the mid 90's with the enigmatic Shirley Manson at the front of their success. This formula is not lost on "Not Your Kind Of People" - the arrangements are still very heavily produced and Shirley's vocals are just as dark and unique.

"Automatic Systematic Habit" is a futuristic Pop Rock track with heavy electric guitars and sounds and a catchy chorus. "Big Bright World" is similar in style with a slightly more obvious 80's feel to it. "Blood For Poppies" is a highly addictive Pop song with strong Rock influences and a superb chorus, making it the standout track on here. "Control" is a very powerful and anthemic Rock song, another blatant statement to the 80's. The title track "Not Your Kind Of People" is much softer than the other songs being a mid-tempo Pop creation and is peacefully atmospheric but possibly a little too much so as it leans towards being sleepy. The tempo is retrieved with "Felt" and "I Hate Love", and so are those heavy guitar riffs and instantly likeable melodies. "Sugar" is another atmospheric track, but is much more interesting and seductive. "Battle In Me" is the second highlight on here with once again a very addictive melody and chorus. "Man On A Wire" follows with a very similar energy and stomping Rock arrangements whilst "Beloved Freak" brings a more laid back soft Rock vibe. The infectious "The One" has a great chorus with heavy arrangements and a psychedelic beat and is another one of my favorites. "What Girls Are Made Of" is a Grunge influenced creation with powerful lyrics. "Bright Tonight" is a slightly sleepy soft Rock track but "Show Me" adds a strong finishing touch to this album.
