    It's hard to say this... but I agree with Pitchfork. I love their first two records, so the first half of this album is great. But the second half is REALLY absolute garbage. (and well, the remix cd is for fans only)

  1. The only thing lacking after the debut were the pop songs. This was evident with each successive proper album, but this flaw is put into too sharp of a relief on Absolute Garbage.

    The bonus disc of dance remixes merely piles another layer of fastidiousness atop the already epically fussed-over tracks. [2007 Aug, p.120]
  3. The band's seemingly desperate to reinvigorate their cultural cachet, but Absolute Garbage's latter half emphasizes the depths they've fallen.
