On the other hand (from navi), I like Placebo's debut, their first album and next two singles were brilliant but after this it all went downhill for me

After this I almost stopped listening to music nearly for... 5 years. Reasons? Divorce, new family, new home, new interests. But the main reason, imo, was this. I was 33.5 in February 1996.
Interesting theory. I was 33 in 2004 and I really missed new music at the time. I think it has started in 2001 when I got married and would get a child the following year. That new music deny period has lasted till 2005 when I discovered Franz Ferdinand and had realized that rock actually is not dead.

Imo, their peak was OK Computer.
I'm with Undercover on this subject. "The Bends" was pretty good, but "OK Computer" was just perfect. And I generally hate almost everything they've done after that...
I'm looking for "TOP POPS/MUSIC NOW" and "MERSEYBEAT / MUSIC ECHO" Charts to complete my 60's singles charts collection.

I consider "OK Computer" to be one lengthy moan :) It really bores me

Nice update with huge number of great stuff.
Sensational flop of Hello Spaceboy. Not the best Bowie's song certainly, but still pretty good IMO. Also Supergrass should have been higher in the charts.
Sparks comeback was pretty good then.
Absolutely deserved No.1 by Nick Cave duet with PJ Harvey.
Cocteau Twins, Killing Joke, Mansun all had great singles back then.
I'm looking for "TOP POPS/MUSIC NOW" and "MERSEYBEAT / MUSIC ECHO" Charts to complete my 60's singles charts collection.

Don't consider this as a flop since the song made Top 10. :)

They would have beeen higher in 1996. In 2016 they sound bit dull for me. :)
