Product Description

Described as a thundering return to the band's original hard rock sound, 'Bleed Like Me' features eleven tracks that return to the power and simplicity of their debut. The first single is the explosive 'Why Do You Love Me'. Amongst the other highlights of the album are the dynamic opener 'Bad Boyfriend', a heavy out and out rock song featuring a guest appearance from Dave Grohl on drums. Aside from Grohl, the album also features an additional guest in the shape of Beck bassist Justin Meldal-Johnsen. Geffen. 2005.

Despite making it through a difficult four-year stretch in which the band temporarily broke up, singer Shirley Manson left her husband, and new technologies made the sleek electro-rock sound of its first three albums feel passé, Garbage resurfaces in rude health on Bleed Like Me. Manson is still kickboxing the air and stomping the glitter under her heels, as she channels Debbie Harry and Chrissie Hynde on edgy glam-rock anthems like "Run Baby Run" and "Metal Heart." All the while three bookish producers in the background--including Butch Vig, who famously helmed Nirvana's Nevermind--turn up the sleazy machine-like rhythms. Foo Fighters front man Dave Grohl sits in on the drums for the menacing "Bad Boyfriend," but it's the confessional title track Bleed Like Me"--part "Walk on the Wild Side," part therapy session for former cutter Manson--that shatters Garbage's image as the ultimate non-stick studio band. "You should see my scars," goes the chorus. And, for once, Manson is actually willing to reveal them. -- Aidin Vaziri

It's been four long years since Garbage released "Beautifulgarbage," their oddball blend of pop-rock and electronica. And somehow the energy is still there in their fourth album "Bleed Like Me," an amped up rock album that takes Garbage back to its musical roots.

Not that it came easy -- frontwoman Shirley Manson has talked about how the band barely made it through "Bleed Like Me," because of (what else?) band infighting. Fortunately, they seem to have channeled that energy to their music. It's obvious from the start that their music has gone back to rock, as the combustible riffs of "Bad Boyfriend" erupt around Manson's throaty vocals.

The songs that follow are steady if unsurprising. Garbage's sound feels like the band has worked out their own niche, like a slightly worn slipper. It's loud and rock-y with some catchy rhythms woven in. These are not simple songs, though -- for example, "Who Do You Love Me" is a betrayal/love song, where Manson accuses the lover of sleeping with a pal one moment, then wails, "Why do you love me... it's driving me crazy!"

Garbage dips into sweeping rock melodies, ballads and electronic sputters here and there, and those touches keep the electrorock from ever feeling monotonous. But the amps and roaring guitars rule the music, much as they did in 1998's "Version 2.0." Sometimes those guitars feel like they're soaring to epic heights, but disappointingly they always get reined in at the last minute.

Fortunately, if the music seems restrained, then the singer does not. Shirley Manson hasn't lost her power as a vocalist; even when her vocals are distorted or distant, she is still the center of the music. She wails, she purrs, she yells, she murmurs. And it all works.

Garbage doesn't disappoint in their fourth album, "Bleed Like Me." Perhaps the album's main flaw is that they don't forge any really new turf. But purely as a follow-up, it's a darn good album.

Some will say that Garbage hasn't matured but instead put out a long awaited album that is somehow lacking-or just too much of the same with all those sounds of the 1990's. There's no doubt, however, the 90's elements on this album are good and work as part of Garbage's typical style. (I think Garbage did tone down some of the electronica effects and elements that have been part of their trademark.) Maybe there's some truth to this-and maybe not. But there's no escaping THIS truth-this album REALLY rocks hard! It's an exciting, strong, straight ahead smack in your face set of song tracks leaving you wanting more! To start off with, the first several songs on this CD are the best nonstop, unrelenting run of recorded guitar-crunching Garbage work since the best parts of their self titled CD debut ten years ago! The intensity and elements of the stunning guitar work in the three songs "Bad Boyfriend," "Right Between the Eyes" and "Why Do You Love Me" leave no doubt that these guys have proven that despite all the band's recent problems they can still make crackin' hot music! "Bad Boyfriend" also features Dave Grohl of Foo Fighters fame on drums.

There's no shortage of honesty and emotion in the lyrics, either. Shirley Manson, the Scottish singer, does her usual job of singing awesomely; she also plays electric guitar on this album. Some say Manson sounds at times like PJ Harvey; she can be a quite the versatile performer! What's more, the songs are full of blunt, awesome in-your-face tough lyrics such as "I know some tricks I swear will give you the bends" and "If you can't love me, honey/Go on, just pretend." I love the effect this all gives you! Obviously Manson and the others in Garbage don't play games when it comes to truly sharing their feelings.

after waiting, and waiting, through many possible release dates and "are they or are they not?" questions about the new album, garbage is back in their purest form with this album. the lead single, "why do you love me", is one of their best radio-ready songs ever, and the rest of the album follows suit.

do not overlook track 8, "it's all over but the crying", which is one of shirley's best deliveries of a ballad, right up there with "nobody loves you", "the trick is to keep breathing", and the b-side "deadwood".

Rocking the wave of their 2001 album "Beautiful Garbage" (a schizophrenic experiment of pop/rock/and otherworldly flavors that crashed into the aisles of perhaps too bizarre to bother; regarded by many fans, critics and maybe even the band themselves - though I would never presume to speak on their behalf - as the black [or should it be pink?] sheep of the family. Ironically, however, it is also the album's oddity of pop glamor with an experimental lemony twist that make this record a cherished gem) Garbage have returned with BLEED LIKE ME: A surefire rock album that is loaded with guitars, schismatic drumming and ultra smooth bass lines. Despite the undertaking of a more live sound, BLEED LIKE ME engages the Garbage hooks that elevate their sound beyond that of an ordinary rock record.

Recovering from a less-than-stellar high of "Beautiful Garbage" and having fought through illness, divorce, and a temporary break up that threatened to be not-so temporary, Garbage have described making this record as a fight for their lives. Well it's a good thing that Butch Vig (drummer/producer) resurrected this project (which evolved to the aptly named BLEED LIKE ME) as it is a highlight of Garbage's career.

BLEED LIKE ME harnesses the darker rock elements of their self-titled debut, the rock electronica of "Version 2.0" and even some pop element of "Beautiful Garbage" to invent a whole new vibe and atmosphere from their previous work. This album, however, is not just a hodge podge of what made BLEED LIKE ME's predecessors a success. BLEED LIKE ME is louder, more confident and more defiant than previous albums. Shirley Manson (singer/song writer) explores new vocal ranges Garbage fans have never before heard.
