While Black Market Music is the best album ever in my opinion, I could never figure out why they picked Slave to the Wage to be one of the singles, being one of the albums few weaker tracks. However thankfully on the single they put two songs I can't believe never made the album. "Bubblegun" and "Leni" are a couple of the bands best kept secrets, both incredibly dark and mellow tracks, any true fan or collector won't want to miss these.

This song is different to Placebo's music from 'Without You I'm Nothing' CD. It sounds similar to Taste in Men and it is undoubtebly a Placebo single. It is slightly repetitive in some places but its a great song by a great band. The lyrics are great and made better by Brian's voice. Overall a good song, and I'm looking forward to their new CD, Black Market Music.

"Every you Every me" used to be my favourite Placebo song till I heard "Slave to the Wage". It's got the same guitar riffs as "Every you Every me" but even better. Brian's voice is amazing and the guitars in this song make me wanna cry. A MUST BUY for every fan of alternative rock !

I wasn't too thrilled when Placebo traded their raw, punky energy for the predictable indie/metal dirge designed to appeal to The Average Goth. Without You I'm Nothing had it's high points, but t'was nothing compared to their fresh, non-pretentious debut. With this single however, Placebo appear to have lost the plot entirely. Taste in Men was decidedly average, and this continues the theme with its watered down minimalist approach.
These tracks sound shallow, lacking the density and power that make rock music great. Placebo sound as if they're disowning their roots to establish themselves as a unique band; but instead of creating something new and innovative, they trade their talent for a lack of melody, sloppy songwriting, and lyrics that make you cringe.
While Black Market Music exceeded (low) expectations, Slave to the Wage remains one of the weakest tracks on the album, and even earlier, pointless B-side remixes were better quality than the two dire songs featured here.
