Biography

On the day Garbage gathered in Wisconsin to start work on their fourth record, they came up with the glittering and steely "Right Between the Eyes" in all of 30 minutes. Things would not go quite so well with BLEED LIKE ME again.

The band battled illness, surgery, creative disagreements, major life changes and-depending who you ask-either a break-up or a much-needed sabbatical. ... Read more in Amazon's Garbage Store

5.0 out of 5 stars The classic debut November 19, 2005
Format:Audio CD
When one looks back at the alternative rock scene that dominated the first half of the 90s, Garbage's self-titled debut album immediately comes to mind as a defining album from that movement. A decade old as of this writing, "Garbage" (1995) has stood the test of time and not only contains some of the best singles from the 90s, but is a modern-day classic.

"Garbage" has many elements in its sound which can explain its broad appeal. The songs are so incredibly infectious and danceable, fans of dance-pop (Madonna, Janet Jackson) are sure to enjoy the album. But "Garbage" is undeniably a rock album, first and foremost. With crunching guitars, intense drumming, and a charismatic frontwoman, a more rock inclined audience is sure to dig "Garbage" as well. Garbage's music also encompasses an element of 70s/80s cool new-wave. In a sense, Garbage was like an updated version of Blondie for the 1990s, so fans yearning for a new Debbie Harry are sure to appreciate Garbage.

Another reason "Garbage" struck such a chord with the public is there really wasn't another band quite like them. There were bands that were precursors to Garbage, like Curve, and My Bloody Valentine, among others, but they didn't take off and explode as Garbage did, for whatever reason, probably due to marketing and timing. Garbage's debut came out at the perfect time. In an era of post-grunge, where many up-and-coming bands were clearly derivative of Nirvana and Pearl Jam, Garbage's brand of rock/pop/retro offered a refreshing change of pace. While Garbage's cynical themes fit the disparaging alt. rock 90s like a glove, the lyrics are often tongue-in-cheek. In this sense, Garbage had the best of both worlds: cynical lyrics for cynical times, but with the playful, sexy trimmings of Blondie.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Subhuman" a MUST-HAVE for ALL hardcore Garbage fans! December 8, 1999
Format:Audio CD
What can I say about this album? It's the brilliant debut from the best band to ever grace Earth with its presence, Garbage. If you're not a really hardcore Garbage fan, you should buy the US release of "Garbage". But if you are reading this and are contemplating spending the money to get a copy of "Subhuman" (Garbage's first ever song...as far as I know), DO IT! "Subhuman" is a brilliant song; dark, biting, sharp and extremely catchy. This Japanese version of "Garbage" also contains "#1 Crush"...the same version as on the Romeo and Juliet Soundtrack. So if you're buying this thinking you'll be getting the original version of "#1 Crush", you're mistaken. You'll probably have to search for the extremely rare vinyl single of "Subhuman". Anyways, "Subhuman" isn't the only good thing about this album. It's packed with 13 other tracks, ranging from a gloomy introspective kind of feel in "Stroke Of Luck", to confident and cocky self-proclamation in "Supervixen" (the best track in my opinion. Well, buy it! It's worth it.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the great alternative pop albums of our time January 18, 2004
Format:Audio CD
I came to this album only very late in the game, and I have to say: better late than never. I knew Garbage by reputation, a reputation that was strengthened when I agreed to take into my home two completely black cats, sisters named Tori (after Tori Amos) and Shirley (after Shirley Manson). Finally, to learn more about my kitty's namesake I gave this album a try, and I was absolutely shocked at how great it is.
The amazing thing about this album is that on the surface it is almost a punk album, with a tough exterior, hard driving rhythms, edgy production, and extraordinary arrangements. But somehow, partly because of the stunningly musical nature of each cut and partly because of the breathy, almost girlish quality of the vocals by my cat's namesake, the songs comes across as more pop than alternative.
There really isn't a bad cut on the album, and several of them are quite exceptional. The album begins on a strong note with the rasping, gritty "Supervixen" before moving into the spectacular "Queer, " which is one of the greatest songs on the album. It proceeds on to such marvelous pop masterpieces, as "I'm Only Happy When It Rains "and" Vow." Not all of the songs are as good as they appear to be. "Not My Idea" for instance is a decent song that is made memorable by stunning arrangement. The care and crafting that goes into every song is remarkable in this way.
I'm still not certain that I would have been inspired to name my cat after Shirley Manson had I gotten her as a kitten, but I am now definitely a fan of the band. This is one those discs that is going to spin significant time in the future in my CD player.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stellar Debut November 12, 2002
Format:Audio CD
This album still gets high rotation in my CD player, 7+ years after its release. It's an incredibly unique CD that captured my attention when it came out. Garbage is comprised of Shirley Manson (Vocals, guitar), Duke Erikson (guitars, keyboards, etc), Steve Marker (guitar, bass, etc), Butch Vig (drums, efx, etc). This is one of the more innovative and original debut albums I have heard, a pretty influencial album if you ask me. There's a mix of everything here. This is by far their darkest album, there's lots of grungy type guitars, but they also manage to encorporate different noises, you'll probably hear different sounds each time you turn on the CD.
Shirley's vocals are captivating. Haunting at one minute, next she is seductive. There is not one bad song on this album. As one reviewer pointed out, each song could have stood on its own as a single. My personal favorite is the closing track "Milk", a high note to end the album on. Very haunting melody and lyrics. "Supervixen" has a unique start/stop sound to it. The album actually has a lot of lyrics that I think a lot of people could relate to, about feeling different from everyone else. "Queer" is a good example. "Only Happy When It Rains" is a fairly depressing song that works itself into an anthem.
This CD works on a lot of levels, worth many many many repeated listenings. One of the best bands to come out on the 90s in my opinion. Give this one a shot, it's a great CD.
