Review by John Noyd
September 2013

Twenty years after their debut, Placebo’s seventh full-length effort continues to infuse glamorous gloom with decadent intelligence. Sentenced to sexy repentance cloaked in hard-bitten forgiveness, “Love,” sneers, veers and spears; pithy witnesses like snickering vicars baring cozy souls in weathered resignation and eloquent elocution. Dredging perplexing confessions poised on requisite precipices, the band shamelessly fans smoldering doldrums into fiery spite and brittle belittling, tackling post-millennial stagnation with petulant sentiment and casual impertinence. Edgy and anxious in sleepy mischievousness, the British trio’s strung-out, snake-like grandeur purrs and stirs in lurid purges, exacting revenge in goth-rock electronics; industrial hustle feeding chronic symphonics while thirsting for mercy in melodramatic apathy. Wrapped in leathery presents, romantic phantoms sanction coiled cadence, prowling in desolate dreamscapes while tied to tired apologies.
