His trio brings together various influences -- the epic, noisy "Chicago sound," late-'70s prog rock, and late-'80s college rock -- but boils them down into fairly conventional, guitar-heavy melodrama, with the sort of opaque and angst-ridden lyrics usually found in that genre. That's not to say that Placebo's sound is boring; churning guitars and direct, heavy basslines give the album a good deal of strength, and Molko is able to write moving, gritty melodies and fairly clever lyrics. Placebo may sound like a mix between the ...

All Music Guide - Nitsuh Abebe

His trio brings together various influences -- the epic, noisy "Chicago sound," late-'70s prog rock, and late-'80s college rock -- but boils them down into fairly conventional, guitar-heavy melodrama, with the sort of opaque and angst-ridden lyrics usually found in that genre. That's not to say that Placebo's sound is boring; churning guitars and direct, heavy basslines give the album a good deal of strength, and Molko is able to write moving, gritty melodies and fairly clever lyrics. Placebo may sound like a mix between the Smashing Pumpkins and Rush -- and the levels of melodrama on the album may stretch far beyond most people's tolerance -- but it's well-written and performs enough variations on those genres to keep it interesting. [In 2006 Astralwerks released an 10th Anniversary Collectors Edition of the album that included demos for "Paycheck" and "Flesh Mechanic," three single B-Sides and a bonus DVD with videos for the album's singles and live performances of key tracks.]
