    Garbage from Garbage. I guess this album is a weak attempt to blend Gargage riffs with Lady Gaga pop sensibilities. Irregardless ,it doesn't work and I love their early work .

    All of the pop-coated rock that was immediately catchy, aggressive, melodic, seductive, melancholic, and driven from those two albums [Garbage and Version 2.0] can be found here – from the ramped up, unrelenting beats to the bright electronics and propulsive guitar lines, to Shirley's changeable, ever-engaging vocals.

    They haven't really been missed, yet it's good to have them back. [Jun 2012, p.83]

    The sulky formula which established them, however, like the seismic chords of Control or the crunching Battle In Me, proves the efficacy of this recycled Garbage. [Jun 2012, p.114]
