Product Description


It's not that Garbage is doing anything particularly new. At times, singer Shirley Manson borrows Chrissie Hynde's phrasing, Patti Smith's rock beat poetry, and Brian Wilson's chorus from "Don't Worry Baby." But producer Butch Vig provides a modern sheen to Version 2.0 that makes it sound fresh and distinctly modern. Purists may blanch--the album is a hybrid of rock guitars, dance rhythms, and pop choruses--but songs such as "I Think I'm Paranoid" (a rip of Elastica) and "The Trick Is to Keep Breathing" (Depeche Mode, without the chill) sound great no matter what they're called. --Keith Moerer

5.0 out of 5 stars Garbage - One of the Greatest Bands in the 90s Aug. 28 2011
Format:Audio CD
Well I should say this band is innovative with a techno edge! It is indeed one of the greatest bands in the 90s...

solid riffs, high energy, and powerful vocal delivery from Shirley Manson. I did not think much of their other albums, but they hit the nail on the head with this one. The singer's voice truly had a distinct attitude and flare, high-voltage stuff. Lots of meshing layers create an ecstatic, guns-blazing delivery. Regrettably, most people who are truly music lovers would neglect this album as a mere pop-rock sensation for a disgruntled youth. And they would be mistaken.

5.0 out of 5 stars Garbage does what no other 90's bands could do July 5 2004
Format:Audio CD
Garbage's self-titled debut was a critically hailed triumph. It was a combination of sleek neo-feminism, gothic undertones, and alt-pop rhythms. Vocalist Shirley Manson could do it all -- she was Debbie Harry of Blondie, Dolores O'Riordan of the Cranberries, she was Chrissy Hynde of the Pretenders -- but she was still a leather-clad skanking flirt with a mean growl and a playful attitude. Her familiar yet simultaneously unique personality helped usher in the new era of alt-rock that dominated the late 90s. Despite Manson's in-your-face affectations, their first effort, while remarkable and refreshing, wasn't altogether groundbreaking. After nearly 3 years of intense recording and polishing, Garbage returned with a newer, glossier, and more catty version of their former selves.
Sidelining -- although not totally adbandoning -- their grittier roots was a shrewd choice in the 90s, when a long attention span was hard to find. Garbage is still in all of their glory here -- the insane guitar riffs and acidic lyrics are intact. Here, it's just done better. They take the guitar riffs and skewer them until they're nearly indistinguishable, they take Manson's growl and strecth it out to elastic proportions. Such intense experimentation is usually suicidal -- here, it's more like a steroid shot to an ailing genre. Perhaps the most effective revelation on 2.0 was the full-on implementation of technopop. It's everywhere here -- in between the beats of the punk chorus in "I Think I'm Paranoid," backing the ingeniously distorted guitars of "Push It." Garbage didn't only write the book on crossover alternative pop/rock, they have it memorized and, for all intents and purposes, copywritten.

5.0 out of 5 stars Genius...oh yes July 1 2004
Format:Audio CD
To think that, at first, I didn't particularly care for this one...but one day, the brilliance struck me, and this has become one of my favourite albums ever. I can always find solace in its statements, its insecurities, and its loves.
Each song is done in a sort of techno-centered spirit, but is filled with a strong sense of passion...often vitriolic but always gripping.
Some people think they were influenced by the equally amazing band Curve, but Garbage has always made music distinctly in their own spirit.
Songs like "Temptation Waits", "Wicked Ways", "Hammering In My Head", and "When I Grow Up" are only the tip of the ice berg for this spectacular feat.
If you don't have this, I feel sorry for you...
But remember...you can always change that ;)

5.0 out of 5 stars Version 2.0 June 14 2004
Format:Audio CD
Version 2.0~ Garbage is just irreverant as the first album. However, the songs are better and a bit varied compared to the first album. Shirley sounds better on this album. The lyrics are a tad better yet nothing earth shattering.

5.0 out of 5 stars Version 2.0 June 12 2004
By Mary
Format:Audio CD
Garbage keeps on changing their sound, and it's for the better! For example, the eponymous-is that spelt right?- debut was a bit on the grungy side. This album is a bit grunge with a but dance. And beautfifulgarbage was a dance album, except Garbage style.
1.Temptation Waits- I don't really think that this was the best way to start the ablum, I don't think any of these tracks are good openers, except maybe When I Grow Up. The song is really not a gem, but worth listening to.
2. I Think I'm Paranoid- A favorite of mine, I think the way they did the chorus was excellent, it sounds rather angsty.
3. When I Grow Up- This song makes me laugh. It's that funny. It's a good song though.
4. Medication- This song starts off really slow then the chorus is a little faster. It's an interesting song but you can get tired of it after a while.
5. Special- This song was nominated for a Grammy. I've actually grown to like this song a bit better, but it's not a favorite.
6. Hammering In My Head- This song is angst-like. It's an amazing track. Shirley sounds very impressing when, about halfway into the song she breaks into "You should be sleping alone..."
7. Push It- This song starts out really funny, like music you'd hear at a circus. It's really good and has many parts- you'll see what I mean when you hear the song.
8. The Trick Is To Keep Breathing- This song is good but after a while it gets rather dull. It is a depressing song, but it's good.
9. Dumb- This is a really good track, rather unique, but it's not really a track that will get stuck in your head. It's worth a spin.
10. Sleep Together- This song surprised me. Who ever thoguht Garbage would do something so bold? The song is actually quite good, and is a high point in the album.
