Rarities #18: Garbage - beautifulgarbage (2001)

Since I'm in a Garbage mood at the moment, you'll be getting quite a bit of garbage these days. Coming on the heels of their super successful Version 2.0, beautifulgarbage had a lot to live up to.

First single Androgyny is quite nice, but it didn't make much of an impact. Second single, Cherry Lips (Go Baby Go!) fared slightly better. The third and fourth singles were Shut Your Mouth and Breaking Up The Girl.

Overall, it's not as solid as Version 2.0 but it's still quite good. My favourite track here has got to be Drive You Home, an aching ballad that is intimate and heartbreaking. The duds here are 'Til The Day I Die and Untouchable. Otherwise, it's an ok album.

This limited edition version is quite cool. The packaging opens up like the petals of a rose, to make it So Like A Rose. The disc is housed in the centre, together with the booklet.
