Title - 'Placebo [ORIGINAL RECORDING REMASTERED]'
Artist - Placebo
Placebo's self titled debut album is one not to miss. Although this album does not feature their current, very awesome drummer Steve, it's still a great album that started the amazing European based band. It's a great alternative/punk album with a heavy baseline thanks to Stefan and lyrics that cut through your soul like a razorblade. Brian Molko (singer/guitarist) is able to write clever beautiful lyrics that can hit home to anyone, but are a bit melodramatic. The band's lyrics are one of the many reasons this album rules. The other is Molko's androgynous beautiful voice. Although it sometimes sound like he is sucking in helium, it's still good. This 10th anniversary re-mastered version was originally released in July 1996 and went on to become one of THE seminal rock albums of the 1990s. The album re-issue features the original album re-mastered, plus exclusive, previously unavailable demo `Paycheck', and fan club only demo `Flesh Mechanic'. Also included are B-sides `Drowning By Numbers', which was the B-side to Placebo's long since deleted second single `Come Home' - released on Deceptive Records; and `Slackerbitch', which appeared on `Nancy Boy'. The second disc is a DVD made up of all the promo videos from the album and previously unavailable live and TV performances, including a Glastonbury 1998 performance of `Lady of The Flowers', and a hilarious Big Breakfast roadshow performance of `Teenage Angst'.
