CRITIC REVIEWS

This album is literally a love song to the band’s existing rabid fanbase

Under The Radar

In fact, nostalgia works in Garbage's favor, as much of the album brings listeners back to the eponymous debut

64
Pitchfork

Though not without highlights, Not Your Kind of People contains nothing as memorable as their big hits, and it's heavier on the filler than their earlier albums.

50
Drowned in Sound

The cover gives the impression of the band returning to their post-grunge roots, which could barely be further from the truth.

Consequence of Sound

This isn’t the kind of music that garners a lot of radio-play the way it did ten years ago. It’s not the type of music that gets the indie kids going, either.

46
Paste

The band is content to nod toward ideas of nonconformity and individualism without enacting them lyrically or musically.

NME

Too much of ‘Not Your Kind Of People’ is pedestrian, anodyne and utterly unremarkable.

I was so happy Garbage had returned after a 5-year hiatus, and though the band had some ups and downs in the latter part of their career, I believed they would be able to solve their differences to re-create magic. Not Your Kind of People mostly works, as it experiments with different production and sounds, though it is heavily compressed, which at times doesn't make it sound like the big stadium record we were all hoping for. Listen to: I Hate Love, Blood For Poppies, Big Bright World, Beloved ... read more
