Garbage is back and they're still pop-electro-crunch/grunge-rocking like they always have. I've heard lots of complaints from mainstream reviewers that this just feels like more of the same from Garbage, that they haven't updated or innovated their sound. I guess that's a valid observation, but as a long-time fan and admirer, I never thought they needed "updating." They've always been their unique combination of throwback/throw-forward studio perfectionists with a sound all their own, and it's as vibrant and entertaining as ever this time around. Not a filler or wasted track in the bunch--and even the four bonus tracks on the deluxe version have much to admire (beyond what we usually get from artists adding tracks, which are often just so-so B-side curiosities...). Standout tracks are "Control," "I Hate Love," "Sugar," and "Blood for Poppies."
