4.0 out of 5 stars Good all-round compilation of hits (and some mixes), 31 Aug 2007
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Absolute Garbage [Special Edition Cd] (Audio CD)
OK, the packaging looks cheap (almost photocopied) and there was room for at least one more single on disc 1 (Androgony maybe, to address the selection balance a bit), but overall this is great collection of songs that generally work well together. There are highs and lows ofcourse, but this represents the variation of material across their 4 creative albums.Sound is excellent throughout, so well worth buying. The bonus new single "Hurts" is ok, but slightly over-polished, particularly after the rougher edged material from Bleed Like Me.

The remix disc is listenable but as usual they don't gel very well as an album, even though each song only appears once. Be aware too that some of these mixes are either radio edits or have apparently had intros clipped off (some of the tracks start at an obvious edit point), although in a few cases the reduction is arguably a good thing! I personally loathe the Felix remix of Androgeny (usually like his mixes), but this is the only version that makes the set (despite some track listings you may see that mention the Neptunes Mix). Things get less dancey and more creative on the slower tracks (Massive Attack's slowest take of Milk is excellent) and the Garbage Remix of "Bad Boyfriend" is really strong. The vast majority of these mixes made UK cd singles, but it's probably still worth having as a bonus disc to listen to every now and then. Overall 4 / 5.
