4.0 out of 5 stars A breath of fresh, accessible air July 5 2004
Format:Audio CD
The fall of grunge was a difficult period for popular music to face. No sweat for Garbage, who confronted the industry head-on with this, their alt-pop/rock debut, in 1995. We hadn't heard much of this genre after the Golden Age of Grunge struck, and when this genre struck back, it was a hell of a ride. While not altogether separated from grunge stylings, Garbage was infinitely more universal and definitely more accessible than most of the grunge acts of their time.
The album opens with the punky, spiteful "Supervixen" -- a grand first impression of catty frontwoman Shirley Manson, who was all fluoresecent red hair and skin-tight leather. The song's herky-jerky, stop-go style is immediately engaging, and the ripping guitar riffs recall peak-era 80s new wave. Manson shows a more introspective lyrical and vocal style on the second track, "Queer," and even concots an immortal anthem while begging for antidepressants on "Only Happy When It Rains." She emulates pre-"Eat to the Beat" Debbie Harry on the metallic "Not My Idea" and mimics the wailing pensiveness of the Cranberries Dolores O'Riordan [now Burton] on "Fix Me Now" while still sounding like herself: a gothic, artsy chick. She even performs a self-exorcism in the rueful, brilliant "Stupid Girl."
Garbage truly covers all the bases here, and their to-and-fro musical style doesn't sound dated, even today, 9 years later. They still carry the same spark and playful attitude they did years ago, and cross the line of rock to pop so often and so smoothly (and so much better than the crossover bands of today) that it's almost dizzying. Always familiar, always sarcastic, and always effective, Garbage will prove to be one of the greatest rock and roll bands of all time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Style with substance and gritty brilliance July 1 2004
Format:Audio CD
To me, one of my all time favourites by this stellar band, their debut showcases their raw engery that would later be channelled into avenues down the road of techno, that would be still more captivating.
The beginning song starts off the album perfectly with lyrics about obsession, ego, and cyncical self-awareness...then follows into endless highlights such as the smoothy penetrating "Queer"...and continues on and on to form an album you might never have imagined could be so consistantly, jaw-droppingly brilliant in its edge, wit, and melodic span.
Songs like "Stupid Girl", "Stroke of Luck", and "As Heaven Is Wide" are unstoppable and just as satisfying with repeated listening.
At the end of this tale of self-deprication, self-examination and sly remarks on the state of society's conciousness as a whole, is a touching song, "Milk", filled with the culmination of the fragility, tenderness and sensitivity barely in sight all along. In it are knowing apologies and a call for redemption.
I can continually relate to this effort, and I reccomend each successive album for taking this sort of brilliance in a new direction.

5.0 out of 5 stars Edgy, Fresh And Enticing. June 13 2004
Format:Audio CD
"Garbage" is a debut album of great strength, it's a band announcing itself with the best material it has to offer, going for broke but never disappointing. What makes their music so enjoyable is the feeling of so much being mixed around. Consider that their songs can sound like a hybrid of The Doors, The Beatles, 90's U2, Patti Smith and Blondie...all at the same time. "Supervixen" is a rousing opener, a metallic invocation to "make a whole new religion" and singer Shirley Manson daring us to make her our obsession. "Queer" is a seductive piece that sounds like Nancy Sinatra meets Jim Morrison while "Only Happy When It Rains" is a wonderfully catchy, memorable and dark in-your-face jam that would make Patti Smith proud. The band's drummer, Butch Vig, was Nirvana's producer on "Nevermind," yet with Garbage there are barely any traces of this being a grunge retread (indeed, the sound is a little more accessible than Grunge, by all accounts a dead genre). The band shines precisely because of their talent, the guitars are examples of wonderful sonic experimentation much like what U2's The Edge was doing through the 90's. Shirley Manson is a great singer who knows how to express moods, her voice is not limited and it is surprising how many ranges she can reach through-out the album. The album has it's moments of gothic flourishes and techno polishes. Since this album announced them to the world Garbage has found success with their later albums ("Beautiful Garbage" being their most experimental outing to date), but "Garbage" is their baby, the album that showed us there was more to Girl Power and modern rock than the Spice Girls and Bush.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is cool! June 5 2004
By Mary
Format:Audio CD
This was Garbage's debut album. With the fourth album coming out any time now, this is the time to look back and listen to the debut. This album is probably the one that could be described as crunching rock.
1. Supervixen-I think this song is a big BURST into the album. I'm a bit sick of the song now, but this is a great song to listen to when you feel angry-it just seems to help.
2. Queer- This song is great! The music video is good too. This song is pretty slow then there is a part where it gets louder. If you don't like the beginning of the song, just listen to the middle and you will.
3. Only Happy When It Rains- This could describe me perfectly. This song is great, reminds me a lot of Garbage's other stuff.
4. As Heaven Is Wide- A song about revenge. I personally like Stroke Of Luck better thoguh. They are about different topics but sound a bit the same.
5. Not My Idea- This song doesn't gradually become loud=you play the song and it immeadiately bursts the speakers. A great song.
6. Stroke Of Luck-This song is great. The lyrics can be a bit confusing at times, but this is just a perfect song.
7. Vow- I used to not like this song, but now I love it. The beginning is very interesting, sounds almost like two bricks scraping against each other, only faster.
8. Stupid Girl- This is my anthem. This song is great. But a bit indescribable. I'll just say it reminds me of Supervixen and we'll leave it at that.
9. Dog New Tricks- Good song. Actually, it DOES remind me of my dog, even thoguh that's not what it's about. The beginning sounds like an intergalactic space battle.
10. My Lover's Box- I love this song, even thoguh it's a tad dumb. "Send me an angel to love."
11. Fix Me Now- Reminds me of Not My Idea, only this song is tamer.
12. Milk- The best closing song I've ever heard. It's really sad. I jsut love it.
So I suggest buying this CD.
