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.
Commerical For Levi is a dreamy wonder that is a major highlight on this cd, it may seem short at 2:20 but that doesn't stop it from being one of the greasted tracks ever. The best track that should be a single.
Haemoglobin is one of the best tracks here. The distorted sound of Brian's voice droning into the verses gives it a stylish flurry of beats all at once. Yet again, a track that should be a single.
The slow deep noises of Narcoleptic make it a good track but really makes the track is Brian's soft voice as he sings "you'd better keep it in check, or you'll end up a wreck". You just can't help singing along to it.
Peeping Tom has a great song which introduces sounds every couple seconds and deep aquatic drones go perfectly with Brian's voice. The best part is in the chorus when Brian describes himself multiple times.
Amongst Peeping Tom, if you fast forward through a couple of minutes you find a hidden track. This hidden track is Black Market Blood, a slow drone with strings and pianos in the background.
