Album Review

PLACEBO celebrate 20th anniversary since their debut album has been released. The present is a retrospective ‘A Place For Us To Dream – 20 Years Of Placebo’. The compilation contains almost all PLACEBO singles title songs, except for ‘Burger Queen Français’, ‘Twenty Years’ and ‘The Never-Ending Why’. The newest single ‘Jesus’ Son’ and the 2016-version of ‘36 Degrees’ are also included. It's an amazing collection item, as the album was released as a four vinyl sets – with black and pink vinyl, and as a double CD.

For the cover of the ‘A Place For Us To Dream - 20 Years Of Placebo’ the band chose a photo ‘Vancouver kiss’, which became legendary. 2011 in Vancouver a couple accidentally got in the middle of the hockey riot chased by the police. The girl panicked and doesn't really remember what happened next, but the cameras captured as she was hit by policemen. Her boyfriend stayed with her on the ground to comfort her. It could be a PLACEBO song, couldn't it? Out of chaos, out of inner riot, out of insecurity chased by insanity, comes the pure and innocent intention - to comfort and to love. No matter what is going on around, as long as a person has a connection to a beloved one - nothing really matters. The album’s title ‘A Place for Us to Dream’ comes from the ‘Narcoleptic’ (‘Black Market Music’, 2000). The song not only about self-contempt for drug reliance but contempt for partner in decaying relationship reminds us  once more of what is most important. It's hard to believe, it's been twenty years now, but we can describe each of them with a PLACEBO quote.
