Product Description

Product Description

Japanese version featuring a bonus track: 20Th Century Boy (From The Movie Velvet Goldmine).

This U.K. three-piece's self-titled debut often got compared to Smashing Pumpkins and Rush--Smashing Pumpkins for its unashamed mid-'70s prog-rock allusions and Rush because of singer Brian Molko's unusually high-pitched, almost androgynous voice. In reality, Placebo were far more salacious, downright dirty, and culturally confusing than either. (The band is a mix of American, Swedish, and English, with some Lebanese and Luxembourgian thrown in.) For their second album, Placebo have looked to the late '70s for inspiration, to the sound of early New Order and the Banshees--with a dash of the '90s thrown in: "Brick Shithouse," for example, starts like the most balls-out Prodigy song. If their debut was the sound of a no-holds-barred sexual drug frenzy lasting way into the next day, then Without You I'm Nothing is the resultant rumpled, libidinous comedown. As such, it's much classier, cerebral and great to listen to when hung-over. "I'm unclean / A libertine / And every time you vent your spleen / I seem to lose my power of speech," Molko breathes on the awesomely overcharged title track. In a year when Marilyn Manson and Bauhaus continue to revitalize the goth movement across America, Placebo's moment may well have arrived. --Everett True

In the shallow world of surfaces we are always trying to connect with something or other. We always want to shock of (for me) the first time we ever heard Never Mind The Bollocks, or for others, the first successful orgasm, for others, the first time we realized that the outside world somehow was connected to pleasure. If God told me that one day three guys from England, wearing dresses and makeup, would conquer America in three months and would be as big as The Beatles or even Bruce, I wouldn't believe it. God would say: "You don't believe?" Then he would play "Pure Morning" to me fifty times repeatedly! I would say "No more!" He would make radio station play this song ten times a day, and he would put something in coffee in the offices of all magazines, where, at the end of the day, we would all be saying: "I like Placebo!" Sure, we would sort of feel like Frank Sinatra does in The Manchurian Canidate. Then in our second meeting, God would say "Placebo will rape, pillage, and plunder America. Teenage girls will love Brian Molko. They will not like Pearl Jam anymore!" I would nod my head. I would look at people from other magazines and wink. We'd say "Placebo" and give each other a thumbs up! I must admit that until Placebo came along, my future seemed dim. Geddy Lee must be in a bad place as well. I actually bought the first Placebo record, which I like more. I am now complete.

This is only the second cd which I own by the UK trio Placebo, and though I don't find it as good as their most recent "Sleeping With Ghosts," "WYIN" is still an incredible album, and convinces me that Placebo deserves much more credit than it receives. Like any other cd, it has its weak points, which for me include "Ask For Answers" and the title track. But despite their weakness, even the worst tracks on the album are solid, and no matter how little you like them, you still listen all the way through them.
And on top of that, the album offers some absolutely incredible tracks that call for multiple listenings. The hidden track in "Burger Queen" (possibly the most hidden track I've ever heard - eight minutes of silence precede it) is practically 100% instrumental, but its a good final reminder of the amazing guitar work that dominates the album. Guitar work best scene with the opener, "Pure Morning," the most rock-friendly track on "Without You", and one that begs to be played at full blast. "Every You and Every Me" delivers much of the same rock sound. But the best tracks on the album aren't the guitar showcases.
"The Crawl" is a minimalistic, tragic love anthem ("Your smile would make me sneeze / when we were Siamese"), that could be one of the most haunting songs ever, if not for "My Sweet Prince", an even more minimalistic, more haunting, and more beautiful love anthem, this time to heroin addiction. Its easily the most beautiful song on the album, and its one of the many reasons I keep returning to this cd again and again...

It's strange, the way that everybody who has discovered how great this album is, ahve all found out by accident. I went to rent an album from the local library,looking for some kind of musical inspiration. well I didnt find anything, and I was left with the choice of Placebo or a rock compilation. THANK GOD I CHOSE THIS! I dont usually buy albums if I have already heard the whole thing, but this was something really special. Every track is timeless, and you really cant go wrong on anyone. the chilling and creepy ballads mixed with top rockers. 'Without you I'm nothing' is definitely up there with Velvet Undergrounds 'heroin' and John Lennons 'Imagine' as one of the best songs ever written.
I wish I could eat your cancer when you turn black.
is it just me or is that not actually amazing a lyric? No, the brutally honest lyrics and quality guitar tunes are scattered on this album like confetti. There is something so undeniably british about the album too, makes you look at life in a different way. I dont think I can really say which are the best songs, because that would be unfair to the rest of this album.

This is nice, solid album. It really is. I would have loved to give it 5 stars- there just seems to be one small problem:Everything.
In order to fully enjoy this album, you must pitch every CD you own in trash and delete all other MP3's off your computer, cause otherwise your head'll spin with off the rip-offs. Brain Molko seems to be the worst offender of the group- I won;t meantion the same things that other revewiers have pointed out- David Bowie, the Cure, ect ect- I'll just point out what nobody else seems to have noticed yet.
Listen to this: a band that classified themselves as British Rock with a slightly goth feel, has a pretty-boy androgynous vocalist with a thing for makeup, and was inspired by such bands as Radiohead and The Cure. Wow, that sounds a lot like another band like Placebo, except FAR FAR FAR better: Plastic Tree.
Short black hair, cute little boy stage attiude, black eyeshade and cutesy clothes-Brian REALLY wants to be Ryutaro Arimura , doesn't he? Too bad he didn't take some stage tips from Ryutaro as well as appearence; it would have done him a world of good...
