Well...I never was exactly a Placebo fan, but a few songs I really did like. "Every You Every Me" is a favorite of mine.
The songs are, well...as far as I know, Placebo. You can't mix up the voice at all. It's very distinctive, and the music itself is very distinctive.
One of my first hearings of Placebo was "Pure Morning" but it was Les Rythmes Digitales remix of the song, and I was delighted to find that it was on this compilation and I really only bought the CD for that purpose, as well as to get a better sense of the group as a whole.
I like all of the songs here, and I have to say, I am probably going to get the other albums as well, so I can have a full sense of what they are capable of, because as I can see right now, this really is an impressive compilation of songs. I love remixes, so that's a plus as well.
All in all, a great mix of music. I can't say for sure how good, but as it stands right now, not knowing a lot about Placebo, it's good, and I like it.
