Not quite "Absolute"
2 January 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Absolute Garbage" offers a good overview of the ups and downs of the slickly produced alt- rockers. However, the documentary lacked more outside perspectives. It was mainly from the viewpoint of the band. Frankly I would have loved to see interviews with their contemporaries like the Smashing Pumpkins, even if the interviews were from 1995. On another note, some great videos have been left off this collection. Of course there's "Only Happy When it Rains", but where are "Breaking up the Girl", "Androgyny" or "Sex is not the Enemy"? I know these weren't big hits, but why not include every video the band made? In terms of a career defining release, this is a bit lacking.
