Awesome. I love their other albums, especially the debut.

Didn't love the last CD as much as those that came before, but still enjoyed it since I like this band so much.

Same here. And even with their lesser efforts, I've always enjoyed listening to them. Glad after 20 years, they still manage to keep their same style and energy.

I saw Garbage live at UCI Bren Center back in 2000. They were doing the College Invasion tour and Lit opened up for them. That was a fantastic show.

Can't believe that first album is now over 20 years old. #oldass

Damn, I saw them open for the Smashing Pumpkins at the Erwin Center back in '96, hard to believe that was already two decades ago.

Cool. I like Garbage. Frankly, I'm a little surprised they're still around. 6 albums in 25 years isn't much.

When I bought their first album at Best Buy the cashier embraced the CD, holding it to her chest with a big, warm smile. I think my reaction was, "You like it, huh?"

First, their debut album was released in 1995. Not 25 years ago. And their first three albums were released within 3 years of each other. That's not uncommon. The fourth came out 4 years later. But yes, there was a 7 year gap until the next release. But this new album is just 4 years after that. I never understood that 7 year break, but glad that they are back.

Fine, 23 years. Or maybe their wiki is lying when it says they formed in 1993.

The first time I saw Garbage perform was on Fox's Rosanne Barr produced "Saturday Night Special." They had tons of popular guest stars and musical acts. I think Nicole Eggert introduced them:

This was 1996.

Any thoughts on the new album? I'm having a hard time getting into it.

I really like the new album and is probably my second favorite behind the debut. Going to see them next month.

I really enjoyed the new release, and upon re-visiting the one that came before it, I found I liked more than I remembered. But it will ways be very tough to live up to those first two albums. Even the b-sides from those first two album sessions are amazing.

The album was too long, it meandered.

I saw them open for Alanis Morissette in Detroit in 1999.. Shirley had broken her arm around the time of the show and joked that she ended up with it broken after a fight with Alanis.
