It may take Shirley Manson & Co. an unusually long time to record a new album—most recently there was a seven-year gap between 2005’s Bleed Like Me and the recent Not Your Kind of People—but whenever they do, Garbage always sounds more or less like Garbage (capital G). Not Your Kind has the big-box, memorably melodic choruses, the electronic-tinged backgrounds, and plenty of Ms. Manson’s viscous vocals, and as they come up on their 20th anniversary, it’s a refreshing reminder of how unique they were when their debut came out in 1995.
