Version 2.0

May 12, 1998

Alternative Pop/Rock

To celebrate the album's twentieth birthday, Garbage issued a remastered "version" bundled with ten b-sides from the era. While their post-millennial output has remained consistent and enjoyable, Version 2.0 is a peak in their pop-friendly, electronic-rock hybrid sound, holding up after two decades upon the strength of singles "Push It," "I Think I'm Paranoid," and "Special," as well as deep cuts "The Trick Is To Keep Breathing" and "You Look So Fine."

When I Was Born for the 7th Time

September 8, 1997

Alternative Pop/Rock

Their third album is a remarkable leap forward for Cornershop, the place where the group blends all of their diverse influences into a seamless whole. Cornershop uses Indian music as a foundation, finding its droning repetition similar to the trancier elements of electronica, the cut-and-paste collages of hip-hop, and the skeletal melodicism of indie pop.
