Release date: October 1998
Without You I'm Nothing is the second album by the alternative band Placebo, released in 1998. The song "Pure Morning" was the first Placebo single to have moderate success in the United States.
The album was produced by Steve Osborne. The recording sessions didn't seem to have been easy, not the least because Placebo chose Phil Vinall in the last minute for what would be the album's first single, "Pure Morning". Later on, Placebo's frontman, Brian Molko stated that, despite appreciating Osborne's producing skills, the chemistry between band and producer "didnt spark the way we wanted it to spark", also adding that the album was "overproduced" and contained "too many slow songs for a second album". This said, he didn't disown the album all the same, adding that it is still an album the band is proud of.
