Editorial Reviews

Loud Like Love is the seventh studio album from internationally acclaimed rock band, Placebo.

Recorded in London at RAK Studios during 2012 and early 2013, the album was produced by Adam Noble and features 10 brand new studio tracks.

Placebo has, to date, recorded six studio albums and sold more than 12 million records worldwide. The band's self-titled debut album, released in 1996, was certified gold in the UK and achieved platinum status in France. Since then, Placebo has enjoyed an ever growing level of success around the world with their unique blend of music and outstanding live performances. Their dark and melodic trademark sound featuring singer Brian Molko's instantly recognizable vocals has become one of the strongest brands in rock over the past decade.

I remember a few years ago, a friend asked me what Placebo sounded like. I stumbled around with responses like "British pop with glam overtones", "Brit alternative but a bit Bowie-ish", "catchy combo of pop and alternative rock". All of the above? None of the above?? I know that for fifteen years now (wow - that long??) Placebo has captured my attention because of that very conundrum. They are alternative, they are glam-ish, and they are hard-yet-poppy. Maybe, too, it was the unique vocals that won me over (he has annoyed others, but Brian Molko's voice decidedly defines them). By the time the last album "Battle for the sun" rolled around, the band had obviously decided that making (another) play for success in America meant jettisoning their current sound for a harder, more obvious "American alternative" approach. Unfortunately, that was my least favorite Placebo release since the first album. Harder, guitar-edged and loud meant out goes the quirkiness, the ballads, the keyboards, the quieter moments - in general, their overall creativity was taking a back seat to being "heavy", and it just didn't fit. Other than Molko's distinctive voice, that album sounded like a hundred other bands to me, but I'm glad to report that Placebo are back with their best record since "Sleeping with Ghosts". This time, Molko's not afraid of being vulnerably mellow, and outside-the-comfort-zone creative - in both composition and instrumentation, with a nice return of stringed instruments and keyboards to many of these songs - not out of place, by the way, if you look back at their American breakthrough album (and my first foray into Placeboworld) "Without you I'm nothing". That was a generally quiet and often somber affair, and this new one sees them making a welcome return to that form. The b-side "Pity Party (of one") is also not to be missed, a beautiful, sublime ballad that's simply icing on the cake.

There is no better word to describe this album than "shocking." It shamelessly shocks one's body, one's senses, one's emotions with a strategically chosen combination of lyrics and music that work together to effectively communicate the raw feelings of love, loss, helplessness, desire and rebelliousness. Placebo are known to release singles that are a bit general in appeal and to allow the more personal songs to be discovered later with the release of the new album. As somewhat commercially tinted Too Many Friends and Loud Like Love were released, I eagerly anticipated the access to the rest of the songs in this album. Now that they are out, I have to admit, I did not expect this level of exposure. Placebo, who are typically not shy about stripping naked their emotions in their music - Black Market Music, Without You I'm Nothing and Meds are all case in point - in Loud Like Love took this enterprise to a whole other level. The lyrics of Exit Wounds and the music that changes intensity in the chorus and picks up almost a psychedelic tempo in the end communicate a desire for a lost lover so intensely, that one almost feels shame for being in a position to witness such a private and desperate longing. This shame, and the fact that this song makes one, in a very acute way, re-experience the pain of one's own unfulfilled desires, do not, nevertheless, prevent one from pressing the replay button, and repeating the exercise. Begin the End follows a very similar organizing structure, this time, to communicate the sense of hopelessness and helplessness experienced within an attempt to revitalize a relationship that once made sense and now has ran its course.Read more ›

I've been a devoted fan of Placebo for 14 years now and they never disappoint. Having the privilege of following their evolving sound with each release, I have to say there is a process to it. It's almost as if there is a learning curve to each album they release. They challenge themselves to keep their material fresh and innovate in all areas of sound. This in turn produces a product that we must consume and digest that isn't like what we are used to. Having said that, Loud Like Love has everything you have grown to love about Placebo and will not disappoint with lyrics filled with imagery and subtle meanings, or rhythmic melodies that are addictive and force you to return and listen again.

I just discovered Placebo about 4-years ago, and now I am a Placebo junky! They are awesome! I did not know what to expect with this new album because Brian always says with each new album they want to do something completely different from what they did previously, and I liked "Battle for the Sun" so much I didn't want anything different! Well boys, like I said, "Placebo continues to impress"! LOVE the new album - just wish there were more songs; 10 songs just isn't enough! What can I say? I'm a junky!

i have been Placebo's fan for over 10 years now, and let me tell you, nothing they do will ever be as great and fresh as the Black Market Music of 2000. Still ..."Loud Like Love" is a very interesting combination of Brian's madness and fantastic powerful music. It's been growing on me these past couple of days, the more i listen to it the more i like it. Placebo has evolved quite a bit after the previous drummer left the band, they have young energy of the new drummer flowing through and that's awesome. The lyrics...i don't know, it's up and down with Brian, and it get worse with his age. Overall, if you have never heard Placebo before you should definitely give it a try. For those like me reading this review, buy it and give yourself some time to get used to it, eventually you will start enjoying it:)) Cheers!
