I am old and decrepit (okay, just over 40) and I love this band and their album. They have enough bitterness, angst, and smooth manipulation of the English language to keep me listening to songs over and over. I especially enjoy Special K, Taste in Men, Black Eyed and Commercial for Levi. In fact, I find all of Placebo's songs delicious - past and present, and their cover songs bring a new infusion of life - Robert Palmer's Johnny and Mary? - great. My final compliment - I just saw them live in Vancouver and they sounded as good, or better, than the CD. Love the attitude, love the band.
