With little or no fuss, Placebo still somehow manage to shift hundreds of thousands of records and to pack venues across Europe. Just as with 2003’s Sleeping With Ghosts LP, ‘Because I Want You’ is far better than we’d expect. The track is bolstered by a chorus just as memorable as ‘Nancy Boy’ or ‘Bruise Pristine’. Clearly frontman Brian Molko has lost neither his sneer nor his turn of phrase. The angst which made them famous is still present and just as palpable as before. On this evidence, you wouldn’t rule out a comeback.
