5.0 out of 5 stars UMMMMMMMMMMM...... Placebo July 11 2004
By harold
Format:Audio CD
OK I personally love this album. I mean like other people have said it is a mix of post punk and glam. But i still can't get enough of it. It is in my opinion their best album. Their other stuff like Without you i'm nothing and sleeping with ghosts are perfect examples of the Alternative genre. But this album......... it is hard to describe.The lyrics are as Placebo would say, "wrapped in lust and lunacy". The guitars and drums accompany the lyrics with eerie distorters and and powerful back up. What else can i really say except buy it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Hang On To This Debut Feb. 3 2004
Format:Audio CD
Although not as good as "Without You I`m Nothing" or "Black Market Music", Placebo`s debut is a fine, consistent rock album nonetheless, one that already showcases the band`s poignancy. Their meld of glam, punk, pop, rock and some experimentation in between makes for a solid record that still sounds fresh and appealling even if the trio has done better work after its release. Brian Molko`s voice is a central element here and one of the band`s strenghts, though it disturbs some people who consider it too whiny and androginous. "Placebo" focuses teenage innocence (or the loss of it) and the process of growing up, dealing with new matches, fears and obstacles. The lyrics are interesting, deep and appropriately ambivalent, presenting lost dreams and dark futures. Even the more noisy songs here show a fragile, hurt side, expressing teenage rebellion and loss. The overall tone and sound of the album can be compared to some Smashing Pumpkins` or Suede`s material, or even Nirvana, since these are bands that deal with related themes and ideas. "Placebo" is a strong record, a good debut from one of the best rock bands around.

4.0 out of 5 stars Things are getting started Sept. 21 2003
Format:Audio CD
on their First album english trio is practising thair own style - mix of glam-rock,punk,pop and avantgarde with satisfying results.the album is raw,with many heavily distorted guitars and Brian's despaired vocals.still "Nancy boy" shows the way where Placebo will go on their later works.
there are many classic bands tracks like short but sweet "Teenage angst" and angry punk-rocker "36 deegres".they are the reason to listen to album.the intriguing 20 minutes long "Swallow","Lady of the flowers" and "I know" are filled with depressing atmosphere and dark layered guitar tecstures.
Placebo is definitly one of the most original rock/electronic/experiment bands in whole modern music world.their first album shows how they were making their original sounds without use of synths and electronic in raw three person squad.a must-have for every fan.

5.0 out of 5 stars Entirely Accessible Jan. 11 2004
Format:Audio CD
I often am cautious about an artists first cd, because they seem to not have polished their craft quite enough. that is not the case here. this is probably my second favorite placebo cd of them all. the songs are just as well put together and melodic as placebo ever was. the only real draw back here is that placebo has always opened and album with a really strong song, the opener here is one of the weaker songs of the album, but this should hardly keep anyone away. unlike some of their other releases, this one should appeal to pretty much all placebo fans. those who complained 'sleeping with ghost's was too slow or that 'black market music' was too mainstream should get this cd. those in both camps, or those who like every work by this band will love this cd. a must. a great album from a masterful band.

4.0 out of 5 stars "Since I was born, I've started to decay..." Aug. 17 2003
Format:Audio CD
...Thankfully, the above lyrics aren't true enough to stop this solid debut album from the great modern rock group, Placebo, a success.
Personally, I adore Placebo, however, they do have certain factors which make their appeal similar to marmite - you either adore them or turn away with revulsion. This mainly due to the androgyne vocalist Brian Molko, who's unique voice (sometimes called a whine)is most prominant on tracks "Come Home" and "Bionic" - probably my least favourite of the album. However, their alluring power-punk-rock feel is strong throughout, and stunning tracks "Teenage Angst", "Hang on to Your IQ", "Nancy Boy" and "Lady of the Flowers" make this a must-have.
