5.0 out of 5 stars New fan for hot sheep pop, 22 Oct. 2003
By A Customer
This review is from: Sleeping With Ghosts: Special Edition (Audio CD)
One thing about living in a small town with only one wee record shop is that you'll occasionally buy something you might never have dreamt of buying in another situation - which is how I finished up with a copy of Ghosts and which is also why I immediately bought all the other Placebo stuff in the shop too. I was attracted mainly by the covers disc and it really is a wonderful mix - keen and crashing versions of thrilling songs - listen to Chilton's Holocaust - spinetingling. Only Big Mouth doesn't work vocally - the ghostly tone of Moz is just too strong. And the Placedo songs are excellent too - some of the best post-Smiths guitar smacking you'll ever hear - while that distinctive voice, half irritable sheep, half underfed Persian cat, really grows on you. The lyrics are inevitably the doomy decadent teenagey drug & disease stuff which old Brian is famous for & should be about to grow out of but there's wit as well and all in all this cd was an immensely pleasant surprise.
