I really want to understand, though. not that it will make me like Placebo any less, I just don't understand why they are up there in the hate league of Limb Biscuits and Coldplay and stuff like that. at least here they are, I never heard so much "fuck Placebo" comments outside the US.

I think they started going around in circles after about 4 records. The main thing i mind now is some of the lyrics. But with lyrics it all depends on the personal experiences of the listener. Still i feel he has some pretty weak cringy lines here and there. But i suppose i could say that of most stuff i listen to. And that's possibly more true on the earlier records.

As far as alt rock riffs go i think Molko is a very underrated guitar player. Not on a technical level, i just mean there's some real catchy shit in there. Although i learned later that Olsdal might be responsible for quite a few of them too.

Probably after 2 yeah but lyrically it got a bit better and they still could come up with good songs 4 records in even if they repeated themselves a lot already. Beyond that is when they got real stale to me.

oh wow i was listening to the s/t reissue 10th anniversary thing today, thought i had mentioned them earlier or whatever after seein pavement's latest post

pretty great band for a while, totally disagree about "running in circles past album 2"
black market music had some self-parody but how can anyone say sleeping with ghost is a repeat of either of those first 2? english summer rain, special needs, that fucking gorgeous title track - don't think any of that was present on s/t or WYIN

i actually like a good portion of meds despite pretty much hating it on first listen (read: hating the single & being a skeptical high-schooler for the whole album first-time through)

slackabitch tho

nancy boy is pretty much my least favorite song on the s/t. those lyrics... too much songs about sex and drugs on the early stuff. and not really well written...

My favorite off the debut is probably still::



I really don't like the drum sound on the first record though. That kind of clear punchy snare (if i was a drummer i'd probably know the proper term) Good thing they didn't get along with the drummer and sacked him (his drumming was fine otherwise though)

wth is wrong with you. You just named my other least favorites. Well except teenage angst. I don't like nancy boy, hang on. i know and lady of the flowers much at all. the rest of the record is all good. I forgot about Bionic. Maybe on par with come home even though its more an instrumental almost since the lyrics are pretty limited. Speaking of instrumental, the hidden track is very good.

Not on that record i guess no. Otherwise they have a lot i like on the other ones. Like Summer's gone, Narcoleptic or Passive Agressive. though i guess the latter hs some heavier moments. One of my favorite of all theirs though.

summer's gone is great

the appeal of the soft songs on s/t are that they're not really entirely "acoustic soft" or whatever they're just pretty whimsical and have all that intricate drumming type business on the hi-hats & snare particularly. an enjoyable listen even if yer just looking at the band's interplay alone, kinda like Whir or something from The Mighty SP

This song is the craziest sounding thing. The vocals on the chorus! Good stoned. And I love that they're just giving it up for their idols haha

I admire Tom Waits, but I like this version of Way Down in the Hole more than the original.

these kiddie voices, somehow it turns the whole song into a good-mood song for me.
