Most Helpful Customer Reviews on Amazon.com (beta)
"Trip My Wire" is a very heavy, complicated and unbalanced song, and that's what makes it so great. Shirley vocals differ radically from beginning to end, going from dominant to hysterical in a matter of minutes. This is an amazing sample of what Garbage is capable of, and you should best snatch it up before it's not so readily available for your listening pleasure.
The first remix of Queer (The Very Queer Dub-Bin Version) is very good. It has a lot in common with the original, but it's different enough to stand out on it's own. The second (The Most Beautiful Woman in Town Mix), on the other hand, is almost completely different and puts a whole new spin on the original song. A great remix as well.
All in all, this single contains one amazing B-side, and two great remixes. What more could you possibly ask for? If you consider yourself a serious Garbage fan, it would be a sure bet to add this to your collection, of which it would most likely become the jewel of.
While "Butterfly Collector" is a cover of a song originally by The Jam, Garbage sure has made it their own. It's dark and heavy, one of their shining achievements as far as B-sides go. If you're a "B-side Collector," this one would make an excellent addition to your collection.
The first remix that shows up is the F.T.F.O.I. mix. It's boring and drawn-out to say the least. Without a doubt, the least interesting of the Queer remixes, which are some of the better of the Garbage remixes out there. Not much else to say about this one...
The Danny Saber Mix more than makes up for the dissapointment of the previous remix. Although it can get a bit repetative, it's still a great remix.
While one of the remixes pales in comparison to the others, there's more than enough on this single to make up for it. Be sure to pick up Pt. 1 to make the set complete! You won't be dissapointed!
The Jam is long gone but its lead singer - and author of The Butterfly Collector - Paul Weller is still around and periodically releases albums. The most recent, Heliocentric, is not at all bad in a sensible late thirties kind of way. A good one for fathers' day, maybe.
