Placebo

Well, if nothing else, my last relationship turned me on to a lot of new music. Some of it I didn't like a lot... Gackt and other Japanese music, some was all right, L'Arc~en~Ciel (also Japanese), Nightwish, and some of it downright awesome... as in Placebo. My friend CJ has been a fan since we were in 7th grade (damn that was a while back), and Col burned me a copy of the singles collection back in January. Today I finally got around to picking up Without You I'm Nothing, which is a really great album. I like it so much in fact that I'm considering purchasing either the first or third album next.... or the live DVD which I've heard is really good. Any suggestions?

Oh, and despite being a heterosexual male, I will say that Brian Molko is a very pretty man.

Hey Lemon!

That is indeed a great album...the last record is def. worth a purchase too. And the 'Soulmates Never Die' dvd is great. It's a big seller in my shop, and I often play it.

I've never seen em' live, but I had tickets last year when they were due to play my local town....but they cancelled cos Brian broke his arm *apparently*.
They said they'd re-schedule...that was over a year ago now.

I reckon what happened was that they realised how small this venue AND my town was, and that they were selling themselves short in a place like this! WHICH...would be true!
Cos I was very suprised when they announced a gig here....but NOT so suprised when they then called it off!

Oh - and as for getting into Nightwish...another good call! Tho their latest album isn't up to much I don't think. 'Century Child' is the one to get, if u don't already have that. 'Forever Yours' and 'Ocean Soul' are cracking tunes.

Do you by chance have their cover of The Smiths' "Bigmouth Strikes Again"? I'm not really on the right terms to be asking my ex-girlfriend to send me song files right now, and it's the only song on the bonus disc of SWG I'm interested in.

I picked up the singles album and it didn't do too much for me. Is there something else I should try?

This thread will probably answer all your Placebo questions.

I still recommend 'Sleeping With Ghosts' above anything else.

Definitely read back through the other Placebo thread. I'm sure I posted a ton in it about how fantastic they are, how great they are live, how everyone should buy all their albums, etc.

Martha, if you didn't care much for the singles collection, then I can't imagine you'd like any of their albums any more so.
