Why hasn't any one done a review of this album yet????? o well i guess its my turn!i would warn you though this is my first review so wish me luck.
come home:starts off with robert on drums playing a rather simple beat then brain and finally stefan.i would say this is a good starting song which catches your attention as soon as it starts.
teenage angst:one of the best placebo songs ever! a simple song about teen depression hense the, name deffiantly a high light of the album.
bionic:a nice bass intro here this song kind of reminds me of my old p.e teacher any a pretty bog standerd song really nothing special here.
36 degrees: now you might like to also no this was i belive placebo's first single and its not a very good one and what the hell is all the numbers and then onto a sort of childs t.v showish bit "shoulders toes and knees, i'm thirty six degrees".
hang on to your iq: yet another unimpressive song music expt for the lyrics.... i belive there just about some one that does drugs.
nancy boy: THANK GOD A AMAZING SONG HAS COME AFTER A STRING OF NORMALS their is a however though.i don't think this sonds as good as the once more with feeling version.as the name sugests this songs bought a gay person however i still can't make sense of the chorus if its supposed to be abought a gay (i would like to clarafy here and now that i have nothing against gay people i just am not one)
i know: a okay song about knowing somthing (duh).not much to say about it.
bruise pristine:this is the peak of the album (it is because nancy boy isn't a good version) a contrdiction for a name which works. i love this song to ***ing bits!
lady of the flowers: partly spoken partly sung. a song about a flower girl, a pretty one but as most of us are is abit wierd. she is also depressed. i do like this song quite a lot.
swallow: a completely spoken word song about a druggy taking a e pill and losing some. sounds a bit more jadded than ever! good song though. there is a bonus song on the end which is a piano based instrumental.
conclusion: this is a good album but i wouldn't say it would be the first placebo album to buy. i would say get once more with feeling first.
placebo were at the time:
Brian Molko:guitar and vocals (plus others)
Stefan Olsdal:bass (plus others)
