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 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.

5.0 out of 5 stars A masterpiece in modern rock Oct. 25 2002
Format:Audio CD
Tired of listening to same old boring rock?, I was too.
Placebo is not just another band, is something truly magnificent.
This is the first of the three masterpieces. It has the deepest lyrics I had ever heard, every song is beautiful fast and innovative in it's way. I truly believe that you won't forget about this one soon.
It defines our generation with splendor. Something that many bands will never ever achieve.
All the rage, intelligence, glamour, sadness, darkness, sarcasm and beauty of our times.
I truly believe it is one of the best rock albums of our generation, that many bands you will forget in a year or two, but this one is something special.
It is in the brit rock scene, so you can expect the best rock in the world, but also it has defined it's stye from all these great groups, and continues to do so. I am very sure you wont get tired of listening over and over again, you will find out, what Europe has found sometime ago, the pioneers of the new style in rock. While many bands always lack of lyrics or sense and people wonder when another brit group will come, well do not wait no more, This is it.
Creative Innovative at all times. I do not think that ever something sound so spectacular before and never will. This album has every thing you been searching for: elegant lyrics, splendid, melody.
It seems that this band spend an eternity to release this masterpiece, because they cover every single detail, they are true geniuses. Do not hesitate and get them all, because if you like the best rock you only need this one group...maybe oasis, blur and coldplay too, but that is about it!
