Without You I'm Nothing is the second studio album by English alternative rock band Placebo. It was released 12 October 1998 through Hut Records. "Pure Morning" was the band's first single to have moderate success in the United States. It is sometimes called the "yellow album". It has sold over one million copies to date.
The album was produced by Steve Osborne. The recording sessions were difficult for the band, not the least because Placebo chose Phil Vinall to replace Steve Osborne as producer at 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". That said, he didn't disown the album, adding that it is still an album the band is proud of.
All lyrics written by Brian Molko, except "Every You Every Me", by Paul Campion and Brian Molko. LP version of the album does not contain the hidden track "Evil Dildo"., all music composed by Placebo.
