    Meds has got an energy and freshness that wasn't quite present on the bands previous albums since Without You I'm Nothing. Although far from perfect, it's got some great stuff on it and it's probably Placebo's best produced album. In the Cold Light of Morning is the only track I really don't like - it's dreary B-Side material at best.. Every other track has it's merits. There are some average tracks with good parts to them but there are also a lot of great tracks. Because I Want You and Follow the Cops Back Home are the highlights for me. The title track works really well with VV from the Kills guesting. Michael Stipes appearance is wasted on Broken Promise - it's an ok song but there is no room for Stipe to add anything extra to the track. Expand

  1. Piles on near-emo levels of deep feelings over a plush bed of New Order synth beats and echoey atmospherics. [6 Apr 2006, p.69]
  2. Molko still manages to carry songs with his affected, nasal delivery as the band provides a steady backbone.
  3. Meds is as bare and honest as Placebo has ever been.
