    Anyone else heard their new album yet ?

    I think it's definite return to form after Bleed Like Me. It's a throwback to their earlier sound from the 90's but the hooks/melodies sound current enough.

    My fave track on the album so far is Automatic Systematic Habit. It has a great poppy hook but the production is still very Butch Vig. Should be a single for sure.

    Meh...

    The first album set a benchmark which they on subsequent releases haven't come close to.

    Have heard some songs. I love Sugar and I Hate Love but since I still buy the physical cd I have not heard the whole thing. I think this is going to be better than the last cd which I liked. I still think the third cd is where they sort of got inconsistent with the sound. Of course the first two cds probably will never be touched but they are masterpieces.

    Shirl still has the attitude and I am seeing them in Atlantic City next Friday. Cannot wait, she always gives a great show. Its too bad that they are not getting the attention they should be getting.

    My first garbage album was Version 2.0 (so witty at that time!), though I did hear the singles and liked 'em. I liked the album a lot.

    I tried Bleed Like Me.. Only liked one or two, it was too loud for me. I used it when my landlord's kid was jumping on the floor above my head to blare noise loud enough to feel like my apartment was actually mine again. Taking back control of what noise is made in my home felt good.

    I could see myself pulling this song out to dedicate to someone when they're pissing me off.

    This is an excellent cd and a return to form. It easily could have been their 3rd release and probably should have instead of the illfated Beautiful Garbage which was a very very uneven effort.

    Not only does Shirley still rock with attitude but can slow things down and coo to as she does on "Sugar". You can hear the Shirley's influences on various songs....Blondie, Chrissie Hynde, PJ Harvey, Patti Smith. There are not many like Shirl left with the whole package, voice, style and attitude and that right touch of coolness

    Faves are "Control", "Battle in Me", "Blood for Poppies", "I Hate Love"

    These are all songs that should be getting major major airplay to shake up a tired alternative scene.


    Battle in Me is quintessential Garbage




    Control





    Sugar

    Garbage's first album was by far the best. Their music at that time was so raw, and now they've become so 'pop'. They promised they would return to the sound of their debut, but no song on "Not your Kind of People" resonates with the abandonment of "Milk", the psychological thrill of "Queer" or the aching loneliness/hope in "Stroke of Luck." I take their new album for what it's worth and is - a decent pop rock album that has a dark side. It's a bit formulaic, but it's still okay. I've listened to it a couple of times. My favorite song is "Man on a Wire". "Felt" isn't too bad.

    I think "Garbage" and "Version 2.0" were just music gold. I could listen to both of those albums without skipping a single song and for hours on end. I used to blast them while working my part time job. I do agree they have kind of adopted a new sound that I'm not too fond of but I still love them more than any of the current garbage!! icon_eek.gif on main stream music.

    Don't get me wrong. I still am long on Garbage. Just disappointed. They're not stretching themselves; reinventing their sound. What happened to using the sound of ping pong balls or sprinklers to drive the background beats to their songs? It's all electronic synth beats now.

    I feel the newer music is a bit flat, like you said "They're not stretching themselves; reinventing their sound." I suppose they need to compete with today's "shit" that we call music. The masses can't comprehend how incredible Garbage was. I will still buy their albums.

    there are alot of interesting sounds on the new cd but its still Garbage and thats what it should be.

    They do not have to change their sound signficantly. In fact Shirley's cd was rejected by her label and shelved because it was not pop enough. This new cd is hardly pop. Its straight ahead Garbage.

    The first two cds were absolute masterpieces done at the groups creative peak. There are not many bands who can duplicate that some 15 years later. However this cd is quite strong. Shirley is not in her 20s. The same angst will not be there at 43. However she still packs that wicked delivery.

    I would stack up Battle In Me with any of Garbage's songs from the first two cds and I Hate Love as well

    I do not know what you consider pop but this is not a pop cd. Pop sounds nothing like this.

    It's too produced, man. That's what I mean.

    well look who is producing it...haha...when you have a guy like Butch Vig I am not so sure they can produce any other way. I mean they were never really dance so they were not going to go that route and as dark as Shirley was she was never as out there as Siouxie or PJ. In her core she always is going to come back to a Blondie sound with Chrissie Hynde sprinkled in.

    I am a huge Cranberries fan and both groups have long absences released cds but I was way more disappointed by that release which just did not have the energy in it that I think the Garbage cd has.

    Version 2.0 was slightly disappointing after Queer, but how the hell could they have every topped that album or even come close? Still, it had some great songs including this one. Also one of the most awesome videos EVER!

    saw them in Philly this weekend

    wow awesome show, incredible sound and power and some of the band are pushing 60. A great surprise was Shirley breaking into a version of Fleetwood Mac's "Dreams" at the end of "You Look So Fine" to close the show. And love it when the band messed up during the beginning of Push It, Shirley handled it with such confidence and self deprecation.

    Shirley looked great, kept the weight off, those legs and the voice still powerful. Played almost a two hour set and its just crazy how many quality songs that they have.


    probably the most underrated and underappreciated band that emerged from the 90s
