Garbage's third album is an almost total departure for modern rock's renowned poster children. Shirley Manson, Butch Vig, Duke Erickson, and Steve Marker robustly straddled the line between alternative rock and techno in their two efforts, whipping up two finely crafted CDs that captured the cultural mood of the late '90s. After six years in the saddle, they've shaken off the charge that they're a producer's creation and have emerged as a full-blown band. The band has also given up all pretext at being au courant and topical, instead combining '80s kitsch with '70s pop, with a stop along the way to worship at the altars of Phil Spector and Chrissie Hynde and even at times arriving at their own version of nu soul. "Shut Your Mouth" is raw and menacing and does as much for female empowerment as a Missy Elliott hit. "Can't Cry These Tears Anymore" is a modern take on Leslie Gore's "It's My Party (And I'll Cry If I Want To), but with all the strangeness of Glenn Close in Fatal Attraction. If there is a single theme to Beautiful Garbage (named after a line in a Courtney Love song), it's that smart girls don't put all their faith in love. The heroine in most of these 13 songs would rather kick a faithless lover in the, er, shins with her stilettos than pine by the phone. The "Stupid Girl" of the band's debut is now just a stupid memory. --Jaan Uhelszki

I can't say I'm acquainted with Garbage's first album, but this album prompted me to go out and buy their second effort. Both are excellent but very different. Read morePublished on June 18 2004 by W. Scott Heitman

I loved the first CD, I liked the second (Version 2.0) But I hate Beautiful Garbage. Almost every song is pure techno/dance with the exception of "Breaking Up the Girl",... Read morePublished on May 21 2004 by R. McCabe

As many have exclaimed on this album, its a change for a band who was once dark and writing songs for the alienated. But this was a nice change of pace for Garbage. Read morePublished on March 2 2004 by S. Restituto
