Garbage's 20th Anniversary edition of the band's self-titled debut is available today

20 Years Queer Tour kicks off next week 
"Game-changing record" -
Rolling Stone
"Their seminal alt-pop record" - SPIN
"Together, Garbage's mission was to upend-or queer, if you will-alternative rock. In 1995 their debut, Garbage, did exactly that, with a tightly orchestrated technicolor riot of electronica, rock, hip-hop, dance, and pop." - Noisey
"It's an important record for many reasons, not the least of which is that it helped bridge the gap between noisy alternative rock and mainstream pop - incorporating everything from burgeoning electronica to buzz-saw guitars and just the slightest whiffs of trip-hoppy industrial music." -Stereogum
