The album opener is the single, Taste In Men. Brian Molko's voice gives the song its mysterious mood and does a good job doing it.
A track, I thought should have been a single. Days Before You Came is a rush of fast beats and rhythms. The flurry of its speed sucks you in and refuses to let go. The line "didn't want you anyway" is sung in a beautiful way. That is what made me like this song.
A brilliant track that Placebo were right to make a single of. The chorus makes it sound like it would be a good live track. Special K is a song with a brilliant first verse. The part I love is the bit after the chorus "gravity, no escaping gravity).
Spite & Malice features Justin Warfield who has also done songs for The Chemical Brothers and performed amazingly. Justin Warfield really outshines on the chorus while Brian does the verses. Also a song that shoudl have been a single.
Passive Aggressive is only of the slower songs which has a brilliant chorus. Another one of those songs that should be a single.
Black - Eyed has a great starting guitar which makes it instantly recognisable. This was a wise choice for Placebo to make it a single. The fast drums and good verses make it a song that you can't skip.
Blue American is a spiritual song that has a slow beat which doesn't stop it from being good. The piano gives it a mood that is far different from any other song on this album.
Next is the single Slave To The Wage, a good traack to get back into the fast paced mood afetr Blue American. The speedy guitars and habit of starting of starting and stopping make it sound cool.Read more ›
