The key to Placebo's sound is singer/guitarist Brian Molko, whose impersonation of a woman goes far beyond his appearance and into his singing voice. His trio brings together various influences the epic, noisy "Chicago Sound," late-'70s prog-rock, and late-80s "college rock" but boils them down into fairly conventional guitar-heavy melodrama, with the sort of opaque and angsty lyrics usually found in that genre.
