Are there any Garbage fans here? They released their new album this month called Strange Little Birds.



Music video of the song Empty:

I just listened the album today and it was awesome. Every song was great and I really liked the production. Shirley Manson was great as always. I recommend.

Still remember the first time I heard Stupid Girl back then! Loved it. Need to catch up with their most recent stuff.

A show called Live at 9:30 has great performances of Only Happy When It Rains and Stupid Girl. They are the first thing in the show:

They sound amazing! I wish Garbage would come to Finland so I could see them live.

I checked out this album the other day and really liked it. THey stayed true to their signature sound but also progressed in their sound too which is rare to find when bands from years gone by come back. My only qualm was the album was a bit short. Solid album all the way through though.

I think the album length is good. Better to have a short album than too long. I have listened it 5 times already and it gets better everytime. My favorite songs are Blackout, Night Drive Loneliness, Even Though Our Love is Doomed, If I Lost You and Empty.

The band has track-by-track commentary on Youtube:

I like about half of the album. I feel like Garbage are at their best when they just let the music rip. The quieter songs on this album are tedious as hell and feel like filler, IMO. Overall, I feel like it's a step down from Not Your Kind of People (which I loved). While it's true that there was a contentious effort by the band to make most of the tracks on NYKOP catchy, I've never had a problem with that sort of thing if the music is good. Nothing wrong with making music people want to listen to and that's easy to get into.

Big fan of theirs here. This album is gold for me; even though it is shorter than their other albums, it's a much more cohesive piece of work. The vinyl has an extra hidden track "FWY".

I can't believe they're still releasing music this good after all these years.


Edit: The bonus track is on youtube but has the F word in the title. Search "****ing With You"

I listened Bleed Like Me for the first time few days ago and I really liked it. I heard that it's not one of the most liked albums by the band. The first half of it is really good and I don't think there are any bad songs. My favorite is the title song.

Listened to their new album on a car ride yesterday. Like a lot of their singles and hits, but otherwise haven't listened to them too much. Still, really liked it! Empty has been a go-to jogging song of mine since spring.

Bleed Like Me was released when I was in high school, so it's an important record for me. I do think it's their weakest and most uninspired though.

My favorite albums are Version 2.0 and Beautifugarbage. Those are full of great songs. I have yet to listen Not Your Kind Of People. I heard that one is good.

Even Though Our Love Is Doomed lyric video is great:

Self-titled and Version 2.0 for me, but love them all depending on my mood. Not Your Kind of People has some really great tracks, but the title track and Beloved Freak make me cringe how cheesy they are. Standouts are Control, Felt, I Hate Love, Sugar, and the bonus tracks.

I just listened Not Your Kind of People. It was really good. I think Shirley sounds better than ever on these new albums. I bought the version with bonus tracks. The album is full of great songs but my favorites were Automatic Systematic Habit, Blood for Poppies, Not Your Kind of People, Control and Beloved Freak. I have to listen it again soon.

I have been watching a lot of concerts on Youtube. These are great:

Monterrey 2012
