Placebo (Pop): Brian Molko.

Personnel: W.

Recording information: RAK Studios, London, England.

English rock outfit Placebo have earned themselves a cozy niche on the new millennium Britpop map with their combination of moody, edgy guitar sounds, post-grunge punch, and theatrical flair. MEDS, Placebo's fifth release, finds the band refining the best qualities of their previous albums into a stylish, streamlined whole that shows them moving forward and maturing.

"Fall Into You" blends punky energy with emo-tinged confessional expression, a sound that links Placebo to many early-2000s bands, but maintains a distinctive edge. Placebo know their rock history, drawing on driving post-punk a la Joy Division ("Song to Say Goodbye") and moody Cure-influenced tunes ("Follow the Cops Back Home"), but it's on nervous, anthemic rockers like "Infra-Red" that the band is at their best.

What the critics say...

Rolling Stone (p.69) - 3 stars out of 4 -- "Brian Molko's witty self-deprecation and heartfelt choruses make for a stylized darkness with a power-pop spirit."
Kerrang (Magazine) (p.53) - "[T]his repaints Molko as a torch singer for the 21st century."
Mojo (Publisher) (p.108) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "[T]he sound is neat, unblended Placebo, particularly on the stand-out track 'Infra-Red'..."
