Reviews:

''Absolute Garbage'' is the 2007 greatest hits album from Garbage. Remastered and chronologically running through sixteen of the band's singles, including the successful Billboard Hot 100 hits "Stupid Girl", "Special" and "Why Do You Love Me", their Hot Modern Rock Tracks topping "#1 Crush" and Bond theme "The World Is Not Enough". The album also included a brand new track, specially recorded for the compilation, "Tell Me Where It Hurts" and a brand new remix of non-single "It's All Over but the Crying".

''Absolute Garbage'' was first released on July 23, 2007 on CD and a limited edition which included a second disc of remixes. A DVD format rounded out the package; among the fifteen Garbage music videos included is an hour-long documentary film titled "Thanks For Your, Uhhh Support" featuring footage filmed backstage and behind-the-scenes, and archive live performances and interviews spanning the band's entire career.

The new song "Tell Me Where It Hurts" preceded the album at radio across the world, with a July 16 physical single release in the United Kingdom. A second single release, for "It's All Over but the Crying" on September 10 was cancelled. - Wikipedia

Every '90s alt-rock crew has evidently determined that 2007 would be a super time to reform and cash in, so why not Garbage? We'll tell you why not: They never actually called it quits. After fourth album Bleed Like Me did comparably meh business to predecessors Version 2.0 and beautifulgarbage, the supergroup went into hibernation. Now they're back with this remember-us retrospective, and you know what? They had a lot of friggin' hits after all! The first self-titled album alone gave us "Vow," "Queer," "Stupid Girl" and "Only Happy When It Rains." All of which'"if you've never purchased a Curve album in your life, and going off their record sales, we're guessing you haven't'"are wonderfully sexy, unique forays in to electropop. Shirley Manson knew detached. Girl owned it. Hope she still does on the new offering "Tell Me Where It Hurts."
