    More of the same pathos, they made a boring formula out of themselves... and that's a pitty for a band that was once very good, now I can't even stand Brain's voice anymore, always drowned in those same guitarlayers+synth/sound... though on some songs like INFRA-RED or Song To Say Goodbye e.g. they still prove they can write some decent and exciting rocksongs

    Just boring and not important. Buy "Black Market Music" instead "Meds".

    Zzzzzzzzzzz. Sounds just like every other record Placebo have ever released - it sounds kinda catchy at first but wears thin very quickly.

    Placebo's worst album so far. A bad version of Sleeping With Ghosts. It doesn't have the energy nor the beauty that characterized Placebo's earlier works

    A bit of alright, I suppose. There will be much better and much worse albo's out this year. But finishing the albo with the lead single (Song To Say Goodbye) is a rare bold move.

    A thoroughly uninspired album from a band that I try so hard to love. Buy their best of or Sleeping With Ghosts before touching this album.

    Brian Molko is still quite taken with his *scandalous* androgyny and sexuality. It's a pity no one else is.

  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.
