beautifulgarbage is the third album by alternative rock group Garbage. It was released worldwide in October 2001 and was the followup to the band's multi-platinum album Version 2.0. The foundations of the album began from tracks written in 1999 for a canceled B-sides album, and it was written and recorded over the following year, when lead singer Shirley Manson chronicled their efforts weekly online, becoming one of the first high-profile musicians to keep an internet blog.

    There are, of course, a few new sides to Garbage here - a few tender ballads and more hip-hop rhythms...

    Funny you should say that the b-sides are more interesting than the singles; the entire album has the feel of a great b-sides compilation... A curious, sugar-sweet (albeit stripped back) mix between the dark, fresh as mint pop songs of their debut and the more souped up, sex-starved machinations of 2.0... and yet, there is a puzzling consistency here. If you peel back the layers and analyze the lyrics, Beautifulgarbage comes across as Garbage's less focused answer to No Doubt's Return Of Saturn... "This life can turn a good girl bad" - that line embodies the album and album cover. Reorder the tracks (for instance switch 3 & 4 around) and Beautifulgarbage makes a lot more sense... If I had my way, it would resemble something like this: 1. Shut Your Mouth 2. Androgyny 3. Cherry Lips (Go Baby Go!) 4. ‘Til The Day I Die 5. Can’t Cry These Tears 6. Cup Of Coffee 7. Silence Is Golden 8. Breaking Up The Girl 9. Drive You Home 10. Parade 11. Nobody Loves You 12. So Like A Rose

    The first half is rather uneven, but the other, from Cherry Lips onward, is immaculate, with the tradition of the closing track's tugging at your heartstrings upheld. Overall, an excellent effort. Can't wait to see them in November.

    This is easily better than Bleed Like Me
