Performer Notes
  • Audio Remasterer: Sean Magee.
  • Recording information: Bath (1996-2004); Dublin (1996-2004); London (1996-2004); New York (1996-2004); Paris (1996-2004).
  • Photographer: Nadav Kander.
  • This well-compiled retrospective covers the first eight years of the London-based rock trio's career. Placebo combines the sexy, androgynous attitude of glam with the grind of grunge, the razor-edge of punk, and a dash of blissful drone-noise a la Sonic Youth. Through its first four studio albums, Placebo blazed a trail with equal parts flash, guitar-muscle, and keen pop smarts, a mix that sent several of the band's singles up the UK charts. For these reasons, Placebo is especially well suited to a hits collection, and ONCE MORE WITH FEELING is, as a result, the group's best overall offering.
  • Early hits ("Nancy Boy" and "Bruise Pristine") define the band's cross-gender themes and slick, churning sound, while the mid-tempo "Pure Morning" sports an expansive feel and an infectiously catchy melody. "Taste in Men" has a goth-industrial edge, "The Bitter End" recalls 1980s New Wave, and glam godfather David Bowie joins the group for a duet on "Without You I'm Nothing" (an association that has helped the band not a little). But while it's easy to play spot-the-influence with Placebo, the trio has enough panache and songcraft to pull it off effectively, a feat attested to on this impressive 19-song disc.
