Garbage’s first album had a bit of electronica that made them unique in the ’90s alternative scene. The band enjoyed greater success with Version 2.0, dabbling a bit more heavily in the electronic sound, but jumped overboard with their third album Beautiful Garbage. After a four year hiatus, Bleed Like Me gets back to that happy medium of guitar and synth achieved in Version 2.0. The first single “Why Do You Love Me” is clearly the class of the album, but there are a number of solid tracks, including “Bad Boyfriend.” If one were to take exception with any part of the disc, it would be that the band hasn’t really evolved since it’s first two records. That said, Bleed Like Me will easily satiate the Garbage fan that missed their presence for the past few years.
