1 classic album
the others are all patchy.
album is 'nancy boy' on?
being agreeable is good, i have to say i'd be sitting on the fence here...my preferences change anyway...due to over playing certain tracks...i hate it when that happens
the second album has its moments. The rest I've not paid much attention to.
i used to love all the others, but i've really gone off them. Without you i'm nothing just sounds like whiny dirge to me now, and Black Market Music can still never be forgiven for having the WORST RAP EVER on Spite And Malice. so, so bad.
i forgot about that. between the 2nd and 3rd albums, molko just abandoned all effort and began dipping liberally into Brian's Big Rhyming Dictionary.
the guitar on the 1st sounds all metallic and incessant, it's great. after that... bleerghh. apart from a few songs.
WYIN, but eventually he just reverted to the old well worn formula of 'Loops and Bad Rhyming'
FUCKING IN THE STREETS!
2nd album had some good bits
the rest is dire
and I still quite like it
The only other thing I've bought since those is the 'Bitter End' single.
they have one classic album. even the first is pretty patchy.
but original version of 'bruise pristine' always made me think production was too polished.
Since then, they've had a few good tunes but the albums are meh !
And they're boring live...
A band complete in their awfulness. Nil point - and may God have mercy on their souls.
a terrible, terrible shit band. If you think even their first album is remotely good you are wrong. You were probably just young and/or stupid when it came out.
is still awesome.
My sister is a fan...kinda.
I am ambivalent.
I have no particular objections to Placebo...
You should. They suck. They have no good albums. No good songs. No good bits on bad songs. They just suck.
is placebo's classic album. NOT 'placebo'.
'WYIN' is a better standard, more cohesive album, and has aged far better than the first album.
No, they just grind my grits. Even Oasis are better than Placebo.
im in the video for every you every me quing at brixton academy in 1998 as he sings the word 'carve'
that i work with Mark from AC Acoustics. He tells me they co wrote that song.
now that was a GREAT band !
I have never really listened as Mark sits across from me at work. He's nice but you don't assciate the dudes that sit opposite you in work to be from a GREAT band.
With Urusei Yastura they were my 2 favourite 'noisy' bands of that time !
That was harsher than I intended.
But they are twats.
with wanking ?
