Call your band GARBAGE and you'd better be good.

Fortunately, SHIRLEY MANSON & Co were excellent. And let's face it, had they been anything less, the irony of such a name would have sealed their fate forever (oh, hindsight, wilt thou never cease beguiling foolish wits into Stating The Bleedin' Obvious? You won't? Okay).

To me, their image and status has always been slightly on the edge of mainstream, yet the ability to write stunningly heavy AND gossamer subtle pop music remains a remarkable gift, deserving of only the highest praise. STUPID GIRL, MILK, I THINK I'M PARANOID, SPECIAL, ONLY HAPPY WHEN IT RAINS, BLEED LIKE ME...all fantastic examples of the above, with the most deceptively impressive plain-Jane vocals I've heard. Of course, everyone has their own opinion as to what should constitute a Greatest Hits package, but one thing's for certain: GARBAGE are not a band you take for granted (especially so, when you consider the inclusion of a James Bond title theme - who would ever have thought THAT possible?)

So, if you're not familiar with this Scottish/American hybrid, though toying with the idea of getting acquainted with them, then start here and work your way back - you won't be disappointed. For the rest of us, it remains somewhat of an essential purchase - due in no small part to a clutch of excellent and fascinating remixes.

I'm serious, forget the twee pop-confection currently abusing the charts, this is Grade A Garbage - something you absolutely won't want to dispose of in a hurry.

Perhaps, not entirely fairly, Garbage have been following the law of diminishing returns for almost a decade.

As most bands go on, record releases get further apart as they start to overthink their work, and sometimes, this means that the public loses all interest in their work during these gaps. The three years between "v2.0" and "beautiful garbage", and the four years between that and the underwhelming "Bleed Like Me" have seen Garbage not bother tinkering with their magic formula to what could be their detriment.

"Absolute Garbage" is a handy value for money package and a good entry point for the casual listener. It's also like a Big Black album, in so much, as it start well and gets progressively worse as it continues. By the end, Garbage are sounding a little one-dimensional, trying variations on the same limited palette. As if it stopped being fun, and started being a job, a bad habit they can't break.

Now, this isn't to say this is by any means a bad record. It isn't. it's the crème de la crème of Garbage's work, and exemplifies exactly where their particular strengths lie : in writing slightly odd, heavily-processed, weird pop music. Garbage are the poor man's Curve : stealing the schtick of crunchy guitars and semi-engimatic breathy female vocals into a handy package. And some of the stuff is brilliant : "Stupid Girl", "Queer", "Milk", "I Think I'm Paranoid" are all concise, brilliant pop moments that tap into a particular mood and achieve a very singular vision within the space of four minutes. With tunes you can sing along to.

Sadly, as time wears on, the band fail to develop their sound or vision and start to sound as if they are going through the motions.

A great compilation of songs from the first 4 Garbage albums, + 3 extra treats, and a whole extra disc with remixes. I couldn't ask for more, but am as always excited about their probable upcoming album :)

Best of's are always a tricky business...although I do wonder why record companies make such a mess of these singles collections.Whilst most of the singles are represented here, its odd that #1 crush (former b-side and romeo+juliet soundtrack song) and the world is not enough (er, also a soundtrack song) take precedent over Subhuman and Androdgony on the first disc.Its disappointing from a fan perspective, particularly as Subhuman is now such a rare commodity.The remixes are fine, but its a shame Danny Saber's retooling of 'Stupid Girl' wasn't included.The artwork is a little on the cheap side,which is also a little disappointing.The music of course, whatever the faults of the running order, is spot on.Only the new single disappoints,sounding as it does like a Pretenders B-side.The only band I've ever seen do a Best Of properly is the now defunct Mclusky - they gave you singles,b-sides,rareties and a live album all for ten quid.Record companies take note.

I really feel that there should have been more tracks on here from 'Bleed Like Me' and 'Beautiful Garbage' as they are fantastic albums dispite what anyone says, and although commercially those albums sold less, critically they were better received than their two previous albums. It was a shame when they seemed to disappear off the face of the earth after version 2 as I felt their music had got stronger and stronger with each release. Sure, there was a certain glossy sheen to Beautiful Garbage and it wasn't perhaps as raw as their previous efforts but you cant deny it's a fantastic album and the same goes for Bleed Like Me. I'm well gonna miss them and I hope that they all do well as they are all clever people and Shirley is a legend in my book!
