I ordered the new Placebo album ‘Meds’ the other week from HMVs website, at the time I thought Â£17.99 was a bit much for a CD with a bonus CD. But I ordered it anyway! It’s one of my CD buying ‘rules’, if there is a special edition, I have to get it! This applies even if I’m not a massive fan of the band… Anyway, I’m still not convinced that it was worth Â£17.99. – Edit: I just found it on Amazon for a whole Â£7 cheaper! D’oh. Oh well, that’ll teach me not to shop around!
Back to the album itself, the packaging looks like a book, the book part has mostly images with the song lyrics, CD/DVD content and the usual credits part in it. The first half of the book is promo pictures of the album artwork, which is basically an almost naked woman, the rest of it contains pictures from the recording of the album, random arty shots of walls and guitars etc.
I will try and get a review up of the music and DVD at some point, but here are a couple of pictures of the packaging taken with my cameraphone (so excuse the poor quality…). Click the thumbnails below to view.
