"I've waited soooo long for this DVD. The only reason I hold onto my VCR is my old Garbage msuic video VHS tape! And now, it's here. I hate to complain, but I must admit I'm bummed that "Run Baby Run", "Androgyny" and (especially) "Breaking Up the Girl" aren't on here, and it feels a bit incomplete as a result. Those choices and elements of the documentary itself seem to reflect how the band itself feels about albums 3 and 4, which is kind of sad. STILL, what IS on here is still more than I hoped for, specifically because of the very high AV quality, and the aforementioned documentary itself. Watching it is bittersweet, making a fan like me feel young and old at the same time as I relived the past 12 years, but saw it for the first time through their eyes. Thanks, Garbage. If this is goodbye, it is a wonderful gift!"

"Garbage's second video collection (first of which was the Garbage VHS in 96) puts together 15 of their best videos, according to the record company, that span their long career.
Not a boring band that puts out lame amateurish videos, Garbage videos are highly stylistic and visual due to the personality of its lead singer Shirley Manson.
Favorites here include the seminal Queer, Stupid Girl, Push It (where headless people are found), Special (where Manson becomes a pilot in a video game), The World Is Not Enough (with its 007 espionage clone drama).
Glaring omissions include the stylish Androgyny, Breaking Up The Girl, Run Baby Run and Tell Me Where It Hurts (they even left the new video out). When I Grow Up is also the live version rather than the video version.
For a DVD which is able to hold much more, the record company acts like a miser here, providing an incomplete video track list. Guess we just have to wait for their 25th anniversary to get a complete one."

"Finally, what every Garbage fan has been waiting for... Although it does not have "Run Baby Run" on here, it has most all their other best songs and videos. I can't wait to have this. Garbage is one of the best bands of my generation in my opinion and I love their creative videos. "Queer" is great, "Milk", "You Look So Fine", "Special", and the others.
In my opinion, "I think I'm Paranoid", should have been swapped with "Run Baby Run." I can't complain though :) I've been waiting for this for quite some time!
Garbage please make another album!!!"
Fans have to have it, but a tad disappointing...

"Don't get me wrong...I love Garbage to death, and am glad I have this collection. But why oh why isn't "Androgyny" and "Breaking Up The Girl" on here? And why couldn't they put the new video for "Tell Me Where It Hurts" on? Plus, the "When I Grow Up Video" is the "live" version, much less exciting than the video version most of us remember seeing (which I thought was the main one). The live version is kinda boring; and I love the song "Shut Your Mouth", but the video here--new to us Americans--is kinda just so-so. Overall, thankful I have this, but really missing those 4 videos..."
