𝗜 𝗙𝗲𝗲𝗹 𝗬𝗼𝘂 is a cover by our favorite band 𝖯𝗅𝖺𝖼𝖾𝖻𝗈 of the 1993 𝑫𝒆𝒑𝒆𝒄𝒉𝒆 𝑴𝒐𝒅𝒆' single.
I Feel You released on 15 February 1993 as the first single from the album Songs of Faith and Devotion by 𝑫𝒆𝒑𝒆𝒄𝒉𝒆 𝑴𝒐𝒅𝒆, DM. The song peaked at number eight on the UK Singles Chart.
Written by Martin L Gore, this song showed a more rock orientation by
𝑫𝒆𝒑𝒆𝒄𝒉𝒆 𝑴𝒐𝒅𝒆, DM, with the use of non-electronic instruments more than before.
Sensuality is the theme of the song even though many interpretations can be made and about "connection" between two individuals. " Most of the songs I write for Depeche deal with various aggregate statuses of relationships. These are good songs because they always have a twist—an unexpected ending or shift. That marks the difference compared to other pop songs." 𝖬𝖺𝗋𝗍𝗂𝗇 𝖫.𝖦𝗈𝗋𝖾, ML.G, Electronicbeats.net 2013
𝖯𝗅𝖺𝖼𝖾𝖻𝗈 covered the song in 1999, and was released as a single-sided cassette. It was later released on Black Market Music, Special Editions for Japan and US, and after for the 2 CD version of Sleeping With Ghosts, which included Covers tribute to songs obviously sources of inspiration for the band.
I Feel You by 𝖯𝗅𝖺𝖼𝖾𝖻𝗈 seems almost rejuvenated of 20 years. I've always loved 𝑫𝒆𝒑𝒆𝒄𝒉𝒆 𝑴𝒐𝒅𝒆, DM, it's one of my favorite bands, and for me 𝖯𝗅𝖺𝖼𝖾𝖻𝗈 made a great cover of I Feel You. ●𝐏𝐇𝐎𝐓𝐎 : Brian Molko by Ullstein Bild, 2003

"𝑺𝑼𝑪𝑯 𝑰𝑴𝑨𝑮𝑰𝑵𝑨𝑻𝑰𝑶𝑵 𝑺𝑬𝑬𝑴𝑺 𝑻𝑶 𝑯𝑬𝑳𝑷 𝑻𝑯𝑬 𝑭𝑬𝑬𝑳𝑰𝑵𝑮 𝑺𝑳𝑰𝑫𝑬"
The emotion is immense in WYIN. Always great, the songs on this album are very representative of the band' artistic creativity. The whole formed a black and melancholic album, raw and virulent, intelligent and worked.
Beautiful jewel, the 2nd album's eponymous song is one of the best songs on the album and offers the themes of disillusionment, sadness and melancholy. "You know the record's like sort of primarily about an ever-pervading loneliness and heartbreak really and you know there's quite a few relationship songs in there so on one level it's kind of like us..." 𝘉𝘳𝘪𝘢𝘯 𝘔𝘰𝘭𝘬𝘰, BM, Placebo In Conversation With Sally Stratton, 1998
𝗪𝗶𝘁𝗵𝗼𝘂𝘁 𝗬𝗼𝘂 𝗜'𝗠 𝗡𝗼𝘁𝗵𝗶𝗻𝗴, WYIN, also has a very good musical quality. This cult song is a fabulous track without chorus or verses composed with 4 melodic successions, calm at first and very powerful at the end. Brian Molko's highly emotional and ethereal guitar is almost exclusively the musical line of the track. Same guitar which transcribed precisely the painful atmosphere of the song. The production, excellent as the music, knew how to preserve this so particular sound and which gives this impression of organic, of warm which goes so well with the music.
The 2nd record is one of 𝖯𝗅𝖺𝖼𝖾𝖻𝗈's best albums for me. Very deep, the transcribed emotions are powerful and obscure.
The almost five minutes of musical and emotional 'orgasm' with 𝗪𝗶𝘁𝗵𝗼𝘂𝘁 𝗬𝗼𝘂 𝗜'𝗠 𝗡𝗼𝘁𝗵𝗶𝗻𝗴, WYIN, are for me a reference in music in general. 📼 𝐕𝐈𝐃𝐄𝐎: Placebo- Without You I'M Nothing (Brixton Academy, London 1998)

« I think it's important to point out that the official video of Life's What Tou Make It is not against technology. It would be ridiculous, we know how it enriches our lives.[…] However, we hope this video will make people think about the repercussions that this entails when one simply throws away the technological equipment which no longer works.There are new ingenious ways to recycle them today. »

In October 2016, it was already two decades since Brian Molko and Stefan Olsdal offered their melancholy rock music to the world and they celebrated this Anniversary with the release of A Place For Us To Dream and an EP of six songs, Life's What You Make It.
The eponymous track 𝗟𝗶𝗳𝗲’𝘀 𝗪𝗵𝗮𝘁 𝗬𝗼𝘂 𝗠𝗮𝗸𝗲 𝗜𝘁, cover of Talk Talk , was illustrated with a video clip directed by Sasha Rainbow. It was filmed in Agbogbloshie, a suburb of Ghana known as the final destination of waste electrical and electronic equipment from industrialized countries. We see very young boys dancing among piles of computers and mobile phones, while miming the lyrics on the voice of Brian Molko.
The beauty of the images is in contrast because it is also disturbing, especially in relation to the news of the time, Trump's decision to withdraw the United States from L' Accord de Paris. ●Photo : Screenshots i did from Placebo - Life’s What You Make It + Brian Molko by Marco Vittur for Q Magazine, 2016 /Editing by me

"𝑾𝑬 𝑾𝑬𝑹𝑬 𝑩𝑶𝑹𝑵 𝑻𝑶 𝑳𝑶𝑺𝑬"
One of the quintessences of this 𝖯𝗅𝖺𝖼𝖾𝖻𝗈 style in the first album is Bruise Pristine, an explosion of rage of a rare intensity, inaugurating this famous guitar game with the eighth note.
𝗕𝗿𝘂𝗶𝘀𝗲 𝗣𝗿𝗶𝘀𝘁𝗶𝗻𝗲, singular song, has saturated guitars, powerful bass and energectic drums. The musical alternation in the verse puts in very good value the energetic rise of the chorus.
The singing lines were also well chosen, with unexpected melodies adding an extra dimension to the track. 𝘉𝘳𝘪𝘢𝘯's voice alternates between bass :
" It's either you or me "
and acute : " in this matrix " " serene ", with a disconcerting ease.
𝗕𝗿𝘂𝗶𝘀𝗲 𝗣𝗿𝗶𝘀𝘁𝗶𝗻𝗲 is one of the unforgettable songs of this first album, one of those songs which i'm never tire to hear.
What makes the charm of this album is also their recklessness, the band 𝖯𝗅𝖺𝖼𝖾𝖻𝗈 was the youth embodied. Curious, the band explored the world and themselves. Using his 'perversity' in an incredible way, 𝘉𝘳𝘪𝘢𝘯 𝘔𝘰𝘭𝘬𝘰 unashamedly evoked his bisexuality and therefore, his attraction to sex. Bruise Pristine's lyrics are very implicit, like these ' encore ' which echoed after the chorus, sexual and surprising. "Being in a band kind of like allows you to magnify some aspects of your personality, to exaggerate them excessively, till you obtain a dramatic effect." 𝘉𝘳𝘪𝘢𝘯 𝘔𝘰𝘭𝘬𝘰, Rock Express 1996
This first eponymous non-standard album remains today a work of its kind.
𝗕𝗿𝘂𝗶𝘀𝗲 𝗣𝗿𝗶𝘀𝘁𝗶𝗻𝗲 is for me one of the best tracks of 𝖯𝗅𝖺𝖼𝖾𝖻𝗈 and a song with unstoppable melody. ●𝐕𝐈𝐃𝐄𝐎 : Placebo-Bruise Pristine (MTV 5 Night Stand,1998)

When 𝑩𝒍𝒂𝒄𝒌 𝑴𝒂𝒓𝒌𝒆𝒕 𝑴𝒖𝒔𝒊𝒄 released, this 3rd album had an indisputable commercial success, although lesser than his successors. Put in the context of the time, we must admit doing as well as the excellent Without You I'm Nothing was difficult, album which gave to 𝖯𝗅𝖺𝖼𝖾𝖻𝗈 an important status in the underground rock scene.
The 3rd album is without a doubt one of 𝖯𝗅𝖺𝖼𝖾𝖻𝗈's darkest albums : its artwork and its name are enough to convince us like the heavy guitars. These characteristics sum up the spirit of the album and the first four songs show it very well too. "Black Market Music gives an "illegal" connotation, the idea of a forbidden fruit from the tree of knowledge." 𝘉𝘳𝘪𝘢𝘯 𝘔𝘰𝘭𝘬𝘰, BM, Lib.2000
𝖯𝗅𝖺𝖼𝖾𝖻𝗈 thus proposed us singular tracks mixing coldness and 'nervousness' : Taste In Men, Days Before You Came, Passive Agressive, Black Eyed... to songs not more cheerful in the topics but with the sound and rhythm more warm : Special K, Spite & Malice..
The 12th track, Peeping Tom, is followed by a ghost track and we have to wait only 5 minutes before hearing it this time. Very slow track, Black Market Blood is the almost eponymous track of the album. Masterpiece, this hallucinating track hidden at the end of the album conclude the album dramatically. " ... We have worked with Rob Ellis who is PJ Harvey's drummer. And he made arrangements for strings, cellos and vibraphones and everything. And it's a beautiful song, that reminds a bit Kurt Wilde. It feels a bit like cabaret [...] The hidden song is not so smiling either. " 𝘉𝘳𝘪𝘢𝘯 𝘔𝘰𝘭𝘬𝘰, BM, France Inter/C'est Lenoir.2000 ● 𝐏𝐇𝐎𝐓𝐎 : Brian Molko at the Enmore Theatre, Sydney, Australia 2001, by Nick Laham
