The last time Garbage were on a world tour in 2005 they ended up cancelling the end of their tour citing burn out as one of the reasons, the truth was of course was that tensions were a an all-time high in the band and the chances of them setting off on a world tour again were slim. Fast forward 7 years to 2012 and the band released comeback album "Not Your Kind Of People" and the band once again set off on a world tour which is now documented on the Blu-Ray release "One Mile High...Live".

Recorded in Denver in October of 2012 the band play tracks off all 5 studio albums which if you are familiar with you know sticks to their pop-rock fusion that has served them so well since 1995. The set begins with the trippy dance sounding "Automatic Systematic Habit" which is full of big poppy beats backed by guitars and loads of vocal effects. The bands mixes in the old tracks with the new and play to a packed crowd in a cramped arena. They don't rely on any fancy video screens instead the members take centre stage with fiery lead singer Shirley Manson draped in all black. Some of the older songs get slight make overs most notably "Stupid Girl" and "Only Happy When It Rains". In all the band play a 20 song set with fourth album "Bleed Like Me" only being represented by the superb "Why Do You Love Me".

Off the new songs from "Not Your Kind Of People" the ones that stand out most are the heavy "Battle In Me" and "Control" with its great slow build up and great use of harmonica. The band are again joined by ex-Jane's Addiction bassist Eric Avery. They finish with their very first single "Vow" with its chopped up guitar sound still sounding as fresh as ever. The picture is crystal clear and sound is great, especially in 5.1.

This is Garbage's first official live release and is long overdue and shows Garbage still have a life left in them, also included is a look at how five of the tracks from "Not Your Kind Of People" came to life including "Automatic Systematic Habit", "Control", "Big Bright World", "Blood For Poppies" and "Battle In Me". The two black and white music videos for "Blood For Poppies" and "Big Bright World" are also included.

Great Live Blu-Ray of Garbage recorded on their tour for their fifth studio album a few years ago.
Great picture and sound quality with a great choice of songs from all five of their studio albums, this a definite five star purchase.
Very Highly Recommended.

I like to see how a concert starts. I like to see the band make their entrance onto the stage. Unfortunately not featured on this DVD.
I also think Auntie Shirl looks much more the part with her hair down, rather than tied-back so severely as it is here. I also feel there'd have been more atmosphere if this had been filmed at a stadium concert or festival.
Just minor gripes though. All in all the band's very tight, the tracklist is great, and I'll be watching this concert DVD fairly often over the coming years (unlike some which I won't mention).

If you are a fan of this band then just buy this Blu-ray!

Great performance from the band, all of the classics are here and played/performed perfectly! Stunning sound quality from this disc if played through a good system.

Can't recommend this to Garbage fans enough!

I last saw Garbage live in Atlanta at the Rocks, Saturday night, August 2005 - they were AMAZING. Get this DVD. It's epic, electric, alive in a way only Garbage fans can understand - it's so good to have them back again, making fabulous music.

I was so pleased when I heard Garbage were returning from their hiatus. I couldn't get to see them live so I was really pleased when they released this DVD. A great live show featuring material from their latest album and old fan favourites too.

Here we r! A flashback to the likes of Debroah Harry and Chrissie Hynde. Shirley Manson has set herself firmly into Rock Goddess history! The band Garbage not always like and have not always topped the charts (BUT WHO CARES) there different and individual style sets themselves above most "popular music". Their most recent album "Not your kind of people" proves that being different and not "following the crowd" should b looked at as something to be proud of and not to wither away in the background! MAY THIS BAND LIVE ON AND ON! Any dvds/cds by Garbage are a must have! If you haven't heard them yet then your a walking fool!!! :D
