Vig's old band Spooner reunited in and As Heaven Is Wide - Garbage - Garbage another record, but disbanded in as Vig's and Marker's careers as producers gained strength. The experience inspired the three men to form a band, in which they "wanted to take that remix sensibility and somehow translate it into all of the possibilities of a band setup. Shirley Manson had been performing with the Edinburgh -based rock band Goodbye Mr Mackenzie since Their only studio album, the self-titled Angelfishwas as commercially unsuccessful as preceding albums by Goodbye Mr Mackenzie, selling only 10, copies.
Initial sessions with Vig on vocals and the members' past work with all-male groups led to the band's desire for a woman on lead. When Manson was contacted, she didn't know who Vig was and was urged to check the credits on Nirvana 's album Nevermindwhich Vig had produced.
Later that evening Vig was informed of Kurt Cobain 's suicide. The audition did not go well, but Manson socialized with the men while there and they found they had a similar taste in music. Angelfish disbanded at the end of the Live tour. Manson called O'Shea and asked to audition again, feeling that "it would work out". Garbage continued to work on the album throughout the start ofdelayed by Vig's Introducing The Art Of Living - Raja (14) - The Art of Living: What Do I Think About It? producing Soul Asylum 's Let Your Dim Light Shine album and the songs being "piecemealed together in the studio".
A major part of the work involved Manson rewriting the song lyrics, which Vig said the band attempted to "write from a woman's perspective and I think, initially, some of them were a little pretentious. But as soon as Shirley came on board she simplified the lyrics so that they were a lot more subtle and worked better as songs.
I always went to bat for what I believed in. When Garbage began to collate the material for career retrospective Absolute Garbage inthe Garbage analog masters could not be found. Vig and audio engineer Billy Bush were able to track down an archived, but rather incomplete and damaged, set of bit Despite the condition of the backups, mastering engineer Emily Lazar at The Hogar - Leb I Sol - Ručni Rad in New York City was able to reverse-engineer the missing songs from the damaged archive.
Lazar used some alternate versions of the songs when completing the final master. Garbage has a sound that "tr[ied] to incorporate different styles and genres, throw it all into a big melting pot and see what would happen", according to Vig. The lyrics on the record were described by the band members as "a collaborative psycho-therapy session wherein personal demons of various sizes and importance are exorcised, vilified, taken revenge upon and laid to rest.
When we're working on something, the lyrics take a while to work on and [they] come to me and say 'I've had these ideas, use them if you want' and if there's something I like, I'll stick it in with my own, or vice-versa. Some people come in going 'I've got this great title for a song' and I might use that. You could be singing this really catchy line and realize the lyrics were totally wacked.
In MayManson revealed during an interview with Yahoo! A demo version of the song features Manson singing Cornell's name. Stephen Thomas Erlewine of AllMusic stated that the album "has all the trappings of alternative rock—off-kilter arrangements, occasional bursts of noise, a female singer with a thin, airy voice, but it comes off as pop" because of Vig's "glossy production". Erlewine characterized the sound of the record as "slick and professional", full of "well-crafted pop songs", including "trashy alternative pop gems" like "Queer" and "Vow".
Club described the album as "a prototypically '90s record full of pumped-up, electronically enhanced, sample-laden pop-rock CC Cowboys - River I. Gil Kaufamn of Addicted to Noise described the album as a "surprisingly non-guitar rock mix of ambient noise, shifting trip-hop beats, grinding jungle rhythms and an ocean-size chunk of buzzing noise that, somehow, gels and rises above the din thanks to catchy hooks and killer song construction.
First single 'Queer' is a modern rock success, and other cuts—especially 'Only Happy When It Rains', 'Stupid Girl', and 'Supervixen'—are capable of keeping interests high. Proof that success can come from the oddest combinations. Vig stated that the band had no initial plans to tour as "not going on the road would really free us up to record tons of stuff". As the Éjfél Után - Zorán* - III. members realized "that if we were going to have a successful record we'd have to go out on tour and promote it",  and enjoyed playing live to record the "Vow" video, they decided to perform to audiences as well.
