And they're not all fast-paced. "Hang Onto Your IQ" is the first reasonably slow track, but that doesn't prevent it from being any less sharp or cheeky. The notorious "Nancy Boy" (not the best song on the album, but at least it got Placebo the attention they deserved), while it is an immensely heavy song, is not particularly fast-paced. And the wonderful bonus track "H. K. Farewell" is surprisingly mellow compared to the rest of the album.
Obviously when you hear lyrics such as "alcoholic kind of mood, lose my clothes, lose my lube" you know you're not getting the deepest, most thought-provoking of works. But that doesn't matter. In fact the sheer sleaziness of it all merely sucks you in deeper. Even if you don't agree with the hedonistic ways of Molko and Co., this album won't disappoint. You emerge from it feeling slightly dirtier, but you'll have enjoyed it, and that's the most important thing.
I'll tell you what,seedy, dark, tormenting tracks, dripping with glamour that provide infectious sounds from the very first listen!This is my 2nd favourite Placebo album after their 2006 offering 'Meds', the songs here may lack the newly developed song-writing skills of recent albums, but ,every single track is oozing with quality and imagination and an ability to explore new areas of music,something that they still do today!Seriously, this album packs a weighty punch, one that will always stay with you, i will now just quickly review each song!
Come Home- As good as opener as any band could hope for,a real sense of urgency is apparent!9/10
Teenage Angst-A very addictive guitar riff combined with all the angst you expect from the title!8/10
Bionic-Simplistic lyrics, very shocking, and a wonderful sound!9/10
36 Degrees-Another infectious track, with a killer sound!9/10
Hang On To Your IQ-The first 'beautiful' track, but with the usual Placebo twist!8/10
Nancy Boy-This is the most seedy song in the world possibly,even the riffs sound filthy, but, massively entertaining!Read more ›

I've had it on cd for many years so when I saw this on vinyl at a price I wanted to pay I bought it. The album is one of my favourites by the band. Read morePublished 10 months ago by Gethin Samuel
