Head-Fi's Best Sellers
I'm not surprised by your take on that one. The thing about Garbage is that they have a producer, Butch Vig, as a member of the band. Butch Vig is of course famous for producing "Nevermind" by Nirvana among countless other records. The guy is regarded as a very sophisticated producer and he has worked on many influential records.
I read an interview once where the Garbage band members were talking about the effort that went into the Garbage album "Version 2.0" The band members were talking about how there was so much hard drive swapping going on during the production that they couldn't keep track. Butch Vig was the mastermind.
Sorry, vinyl fans, but the work of the band Garbage has all been endlessly manipulated in the digital realm by Butch Vig and the other band members.
Everything Garbage has made was completely manipulated in the digital realm, and it all sounds fantastic!
Butch Vig and Garbage are proof of what is possible through digital production. It sounds fantastic. Turntable people need not apply, because even if you get a Garbage record on vinyl, the production was DIGITAL, and it sounds awesome!

Today's selection from my birthday gifts is an album by Dear and the Headlights. This is a band that I love because they sound like The Killers did early on, with a bit of a punk twist. Their lead singer's voice sounds almost exactly like Brandon Flowers, and their musical style is very similar to what The Killers' on Hot Fuss.
However, they're a little bit more uncontrolled than the Las Vegas megahits that share much of their style; they're not afraid of cracking voices or truly having fun with their music. It's not as taut and overproduced as Day & Age and Battle Born, and that's a good thing.
