Placebo's new single, what do people think?
but i haven't heard it
than the last one !
good if you're 16
i was 15 during my placebo phase...
I expected it to be thoroughly shit after Black Market Music which I hated, but Sleeping With Ghosts was pretty good.
i still like the first album...
the first album is actually ok, cept for swallow and *blush* lady of the flowers *blush, blush, blush*
i think... i was going through my crap cds t'other night and i kept it, so it must have made a good impression
is the best thing they've done...
I thought you were named after the Genet play! I've been scared of your intellect for ages! I love Placebo.
though actually, yeah, now you mention it....
I don't know. My knowledge of Genet stems from my ex having to write an essay about him. But Les Negres seemed to have those kind of themes, so I guess it might do too!
i was bluffing too
20 years was a good single, and this new one is a bit repetitive but i love it, and i was 14 when i first started loving placebo and i still do, and i don't think it's a phase as i actually like their music not just fancy their singer.
Have embarassing phases which aren't just down to fancying singers y'know. For instance I used to have Stereophonics albums. And I assure you I do NOT fancy Kelly Jones. Even if he does have a girl's name.
um, sorry that wasn't aimed at any of you, it's just some people are like that and it pisses me off , especially when people tell me that's the only reason i like placebo....
it happens more with placebo than any other band really, i think
but it's no why i like them.
i mean i started to like their music before i knew what gender brian molko was.
First name a giveaway?
I really like placebo!
'Placebo' and 'sleeping with ghosts' are fantastic albums, the two in-between are lacklusture!
I would really like to hear the new single!
i started to like them when i didn't know what gender their LEAD SINGER was, better.
cheers for the link ;)
better than...er....welll.......*scratches nose*
their first album is still not bad! maybe.
mean to say it will be....
about 18 tracks or so on it.
it's ok about the link, you're welcome.
Well, it rocks, definately! Rather good, though I'll probably have to give it a couple more listens before I get into it!
As for first singles off their albums though, I reckon 'the bitter end' was better
i love lots of them, i'd say most of their singles were better than other songs on the albums, not all, but some, i love their b-sides though too.
well, I reckon their b-sides are hit or miss. 'Where is my mind'(if you can call that a b-side) was excellent and some of the early b-sides were good, but the other leave alot to be desired.
I've not been a big fan of their singles there have always been better songs on the albums in my opinion!
by the way, seeing as we seem to be the only Placebo fans on here, what is your faviroute placebo album?
Personally my faviroute is 'Placebo', bruise pristine and teenage angst are excellent!
placebo is clearly the best/only good one
for brian molko
no joke! well actually it probably is a joke, but less so than if you put most other peoples' names in there.
BMM is rubbish, but I got it a limited version with the coolest packaging ever. Hard to describe, but it's embossed digipak, and you pull one side and the cd slides out the other. Much more interesting than the album itself.
hard to say! hmm, in order...for now, as it changes a lot.
Black market music
sleeping with ghosts
and without you i'm nothing.
my favourite b-side is miss moneypenny and i love 2468 and paycheck, i've heard where is my mind too much, i do still like it though.
interesting, why do you rate BMM so highly??
I don't mind it, but it just lacks the depth of the previous albums. The songs are too heavily layered with keyboards and stuff!
Black eyed is still class though ;)
i go through phases, i used to hate sleeping with ghosts and love without you i'm nothing, i still love wyin, but it's no as great as it once was, and swg just got better as i listened to it more, i like bmm cos it seems, i don';t know, it seems darker to me a bit, if that makes sense, and it's not so rocky like placebo, sad like wyin, and different like swg.
I see, fair enough, I just think the songs don't go anywhere, and Brian could have pulled them songs out of his arse anyday!
And on another not, the only placebo song I can play is 'Bionic', which is really easy, and thats why I can play it!
And I know what you mean by phases, I'm constantly switching between swg and 'Placebo'!
i know, i go back and forth with what is my favourite!
ah bioic, the song about sex with machines, harder faster, forever after, none of us can make the break =p lol
'none of you can make the grade'
yeah, I played bionic for my music exam with my school, however I didn't sing the lyrics, which is understandable!!!
Can you imagine singing that in a catholic school! Fucking hell!
that would've been so funny, i think you should've sung the lyrics, definatly!
damn i wish i could play placebo songs, but i never learned to play an insturment, i'll content to singing them, tunelessly....
that song is ok, but it's too long, and the french version is nice but obviously, just as long so still too long, i love evil dildo [secret song after it] though as secret songs go, i prefer black market blood.
They aren't too difficult, alot of the songs are just chords, however, most of 'placebo' incorporates alot of melody which is more difficult!
And anyway me singing would have been bad, its quite hard for me to put on a girly voice!
by the way ladyoftheflowers, you can admit it, you love them really!!! ;)
seen as you corrected me on the lyrics!
you must love them, or hate me, oh, please tlel me you love them =s
his voice isn't that girly! it's more whiney, but i like it =)
I'll say its 'unique', but I certainly think on the earlier albums its quite girly!!!
ok it's girly, but he's prettyt so he can get away with it =)
god i'm so shallow sometimes =s
I don't know you, but *ahem* yes you are shallow *ahem*
I luckily got to see them years ago with my vitriol supporting, it was fanfuckingtastic!
i'm not shallow, cough, no really i'm not!
i want to see them live!! i ahven't yet damndamndamn, i plan to this year when they come to the uk!!!!!!!
it was a usernamein bad taste!
yeah but it will probably be at some shitty arena!!!
not be =(
and i wouldn't care, just so long as i can see them!!
not if you're at the back of the arena!!!
And anyway, it depends if this album is commercially sucessful, otherwise it will be the cool little venues!
push my way to the front, i'll fail that plan i bet, but i hslal try, ot go early, or something.....a cool little venue in nedinburgh [yes nedinburgh] would be just great =)
yep, but I'd rather them come to cambridge than Edinburgh! haha ;)
but edinburgh is nicer =p
i've never been to/seen cambridge, so i take that back
still, they should go to both.
cambridge is lovely, full of beautiful places and pretentious twats!
From what I know, edinburgh is very cold!!
But *ahem* I did fail my geography!
you learned much about edinburgh in geography!
it's not in the arctic, scotland is like england.....and edinburgh isn't always cold, we have things called summer, where it's warm, and edinburgh is pretty
You learn something new everyday! Edinburgh have summers!!!
Anyway, btw,did you get sleeping with ghosts with the extra disc?
of sleeping with ghosts was burnt off the computer :(
what's on the extra disc?
know, um, this is thread for what people thought of the new single, i don't care if you think they're crap.
it is the other new single which they are releasing everywhere else
very much =)
