Needs to be a thread on this band.
Favorite album? For me, it's Meds and it isn't even close.
Without You I'm Nothing - no contest
B Molko is such an underrated guitar player - the sickest riffs and all sorts of weird alternate tunings
saw them live once and they were amazing
unfortunately, I can't get behind anything after Sleeping with Ghosts
I've always wanted to see them live. Without You I'm Nothing is my second favorite.
New box set + EP up for preorder.
Not a new full length, but rather a compilation.
A Place For Us To Dream
Life's What You Make It
Wish there was more new material included within these releases. However, I'm always excited to listen to Placebo, so I'm curious to hear these other versions. This band has one of the most extensive b-sides and rarities collection. Smashing Pumpkins may have more though.
was listening to BMM last night, so many great songs but black eyed and slave to the wage are prob my favorite from that one
Special Needs is one of my favorite songs ever, just a simple melody but so moving
also just realized they sampled Pavement on Slave to the Wage
This band changed my life since the moment I heard “Every You Every Me” on the Cruel Intentions soundtrack. This band was also the main reason my wife showed any interest in me. I remember tryin to talk to her and she was kind of disinterested til we started talking about favorite bands and when I mentioned Placebo her eyes lit up and the rest is history..
As for the band, Without You I’m Nothing will always be my favorite album (My wife is Black Market Music) but after Meds I wasn’t much into their music, but still appreciate some of the songs. Saw them live last time they were in America, they put on a great show. It’s too bad they rarely come here though, but it’s time for a new album already it’s been quite awhile!
First single in five years:
It's a good return, definitly sounds like Placebo.
oh boy! while I don’t love the post-Sleeping albums they continue to churn out some great songs
will listen later today
Happy that they’re finally back!
Wasn’t big on Beautiful James but Surrounded By Spies is some of their best work since Meds. They still got it!
