[New Releases] Placebo "Meds"

— Herman Snell and Alex Slawson

Placebo—"Meds" (Astralwerks 2006) Over the past 10 years, Placebo has become one of the top-selling British arena rockers for the UK's Marilyn Manson/Pumpkins set. Their powerful electro-alt-rock, genre-defying sounds have kept them out of the superstar mainstream U.S., with the exception of some choice airplay of their singles on alternative Internet radio. It's no surprise that Placebo's strength lies with their singles on "Meds." But after you've picked up their singles compilation "Once More With Feeling" and their debut, you'll find the hits on "Meds" well worth the price of admission.
