The moment you press play, Placebo's debut yanks you into a fast-paced, breathless, adrenaline-fuelled ride that is a bit like passing through Camden Market on a rollercoaster. Not everybody's cup of tea, then. But I couldn't help being caught up in the sheer energy of it all. The opener, "Come Home", sets the tone for most of the album. Powerful drums, stinging guitars, Molko's whiney voice sneering out quick-rhyming lyrics full of references to drink and drugs and sex, oh, and some good old angst just to let you know that this isn't supposed to be sunny day music. The strongest track is "Bionic", really a typical Placebo song that sums up all that makes them great: simple guitar playing, and simple lyrics (about a sex toy in this case, but there's some ambiguity here thankfully). Let's be clear on this: Placebo aren't out to prove that they are the most technically adept musicians in the world, nor that they take their work too seriously. They're just out to do what they're good at, and that is producing fantastic songs.
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.

'Alcoholic kind of mood, lose my clothes, lose my lube, crusin' for a piece of fun, lookin out for number one' These are the very first lyrics you are treated to on the track Nancy Boy, even as a teenager of today, living in a hard to shock enviroment, the first time I heard this, I think my jaw was located somewhere near my knees, and also, was that a women?!?!NO, it just sounds like one!!!!It's the consistency to shock and the ability to carve their own path out in music, that sees them still here in 2006,but,lets just look at whats's on offer here in Placebo's first album!

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!

I got this cd having bought 'without you i'm nothing' after every you every me & allergic totally blew me away & this cd although perhaps not quite as good is definitely worth having. Although there's only 10 tracks each one is really individual & brings out different emotions and meanings alot of this is down to brians unique voice. now this is a guy who can really bring out feeling in songs for example the pleading in come home. the lyrics are superb & yes twisted (but thats a good thing!) for example nancy boy definitely one of the album's highlights. there are other simpler lyrics that will also stand out in your mind such as bionic's 'HARDER!!! FASTER!!!' if you like this cd i cannot recommend enough the other two!! this is goth rock at its finest & still with a postive feeling. the lyrics will really speak to you. they are also an incredibly sexy band you can hear it through the music & theyre amazing live OK thats enough GO GET IT!!!

Why I didn't get round to buying this before I'll never know, particularly being a fan of any indie rock group with their own inimitable sound, and having admired their other two works for over a year. It's always strange listening to the first CD of a group after listening to second and third works. Usually, despite a couple of killer tracks, they tend to be a let down but hint at the fayre to come on future releases. This however is one of the best debut CDs I've bought. Every song has something of interest either lyrically, musically, and in the most part here both simultaneously. Minor gripes are that the best tracks are served up within the first six songs leaving the album with a kind of anti-climactic feel. The production also is not as clear as on WYIN or BMM which doesn't do justice on some tracks ie. 36 degrees, to the band's unique guitar sound. Anyone hesitating to buy this...don't. You WILL NOT be disappointed.
