Apparently, if you listen to Placebo you don’t actually feel the effects of their music, be they visceral or cerebral, you just think you do. Or perhaps if you turn it up loud enough, you will. Their eponymous debut album originally landed in 1996 and featured some androgynous alt. rock bangers such as Nancy Boy, Come Home and Teenage Angst. It is now reissued on vinyl for you delectation and reappraisal.

This album is Placebo's first, and for me it's also the greatest. Being the first album that introduced me into Placebo, I might be a bit biased, but stick with me here. Brian Malko's voice is a real treat, and thanks to the reissue on 180 gram vinyl, it sounds even better in my opinion. The real highlights on this album include the harder Bruise Pristine and Nancy Boy, while Lady of the Flowers is an awesome emotional ballad. 36 degrees touches a bit on poppy sounds, but still manage to create that signature Placebo sound.

If you're a fan of Placebo, this is a must have reissue of their debut album. Placebo's first album is in my opinion one of the best modern rock albums out there. The songs are raw yet melodic, lyrics are fun, and the music is just all around great. Of course, one could consider it as a noisy teenage angst album, one more... But no, it makes sense, it`s a spontaneous and exciting debut album, with no fuss, just pure adrenalin. The lyrics are daring, the music is obsessive, and the album is a wave which takes you with it, excites you, rakes you out, and then leaves you exhausted and inarticulate.
