Rarities #19: Garbage - Version 2.0 (1998)

Version 2.0 = 2.0 x goodness. Right from the start, the album goes into full drive and never lets up. Packed with hits that I mentioned in my previous posts, every song here is a gem. It's hard to single out a fave, but Hammering In My Head stands out as being the most intense and excellent track. Just listen to the ending of the song. It's as if Shirley Manson was really going to eat you.

The 4-track bonus CD is a great showcase of Manson's live vocals, but it's only a tease. Surely they could have thrown in a couple more tracks? Let's hope Garbage reunites and tours again...
