Lewis's single to avoid (06/03/06)

Placebo - 'Because I Want You'
Does anyone still like Placemo? These perpetual adolescents have been trotting out the same old tired crap for the last ten years, and the Great British Record-Buying Public still sees fit to prolong their career. Brian Molko is well into his thirties, so surely he should have outgrown lyrics like 'When I hit the bottle, 'cos I'm afraid to be alone...' by now? Not so; this pointless song is ripe with generic angst that will no doubt be appreciated by sad, insincere semi-goths. Continuously catering to this tedious market is never going to produce anything of worth. Come in Placemo, your time is up.
