5 stars After years of neglecting a much in demand for Placebo vinyls, mostly due to Acid-jazz and techno artists (frequent sampling from his albums), some label finally took to interest to release at least parts of the Placebo records (that are becoming scarce on the market) by issuing this compilation of the best tracks of the three vinyls. If there is a real meaning to that famous "Best Of XXX», this album is really out for the best tracks of an album (which is actually rarely the case, usually being the "most commercially successful of XXX") but it would rather die out then call itself such defaming a title. AND QUITE RIGHTLY SO!!!

I really mean it here, somehow the tracks chosen on this compilation are up to 95% of the ones I would have chosen, so remarkably so, that I am taking the time to write down. Although a compilation album can never replace the album feel (as opposed to a collection of tunes), but in this case, the compilation is so well done that it could become its own album. So in a way very Moulin way, he actually sampled his albums to make a new. Will that circle finally be broken? Not likely ;-) !!! And we would hate Moulin to stop being himself!!!

4 stars After years and years, finally, we have "Placebo Years 1971 to 1974" released in 2005. With the excellent "Sam' Suffy" (1975), this 'choosen titles' is a very exciting album with a mix of jazz-rock, jazz and sometimes (but you have find hard for) some prog sounds or avant-garde sounds. To know the best part of Marc Moulin history, please feel free to visit marcmoulin.com/news.html and try to hear "Placebo Years 1971 to 1974" published by the famous label Blue Note. It's a must from little Belgium !
