Conjure memories of New Order and the Smashing Pumpkins, Placebo charts a confusing and confrontational path on Without You I'm Nothing

Author & Special Guests

With a new Placebo album out this month, we thought it would be the perfect time to revisit the breakthrough album from this confusing and confrontational UK 90s rock band. Their sophomore release, Without You I'm Nothing, moves between wholly unique sounds like "Pure Morning" and "Allergic," to songs that conjure memories of New Order and the Smashing Pumpkins, although with the idiosyncratic vocal style of lead singer Brian Molko. Is Placebo for everyone? Tune in to find out.

Does This album bring back some great vibes?
