Garbage ()


Garbage's self-titled debut has all the trappings of alternative rock -- off-kilter arrangements, occasional bursts of noise, a female singer with a thin, airy voice -- but it comes off as pop, thanks to the glossy production courtesy of drummer Butch Vig. Not only is the sound of the record slick and professional, but all the songs are well-crafted pop songs. Unfortunately, only a handful of the songs are memorable, but those that are -- "Vow" and "Queer," in particular -- are small, trashy alternative pop gems. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine, Rovi Hide synopsis

Absolutely brilliant

by KyLi3 on Nov 28, 2008

I came across this album very recently, and I must say I am impressed. Over a decade old, but the music on Garbage's self-titled debut album is tantalizing and absoultely amazing. 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. This is a must have for any Garbage fan.
