Garbage: Version 2.0

Andy Gill, MOJO, June 1998

"I'LL TELL you something," offers Shirley Manson conspiratorially at the start of this second load of Garbage, "I am a wolf, but I like to wear sheep's clothing." As if we didn't know: in direct line of descent from Siouxsie Sioux and Curve's Toni Halliday, she brings a stem, disquieting edge of danger to Garbage's love songs — though they seem to be less in evidence here than on their debut.
