Generally though, they've used loads of effects and post-prod on this record. Perhaps a bit too much. Blackout is a good example of effects used right. The album as a whole - am not sure if it's better than NYKOP. This one tries to be bold and off, but is at most a good album. It's not bold. "Art angels" is bold and fresh.
\/ judging by you library, Garbage's sound is very far from your taste, so whats the point? You dont like it and thats it. And you haven't listen to any Garbage's songs here in last.fm. Again, whats you point in coming here and post this?
My favorite stays 'beautifulgarbage', but in general I like every single album of them. Lyrical moments on the new record are sometimes lame compared with the previous records like on lead single Empty for istance. I don't know, maybe I will used to.
I honestly think that ''Strange little birds'' is their best record since ''Garbage'' and ''Version 2.0''. Though I enjoyed ''Not your kind of people'', the new record is more cohesive and really tells a story. And this makes me fucking happy.
