If you like silent alarm, you'll like this. But it's not part II.

agreed. This is probably a hasty judgment but I think this is their best since Silent Alarm.

What the fuck am I not hearing that others do in this record. Ok, it's not as bad as I initially thought, but if this is the best they could do fuck it.

Digging: Vessel - Punish, Honey

best bloc record since Silent Alarm..(although i liked also Intimacy)
It's like 'we are back and we rock again"
Kettling is their harder song to date. So he begins to lie and 3 x3 are a magnificent intro, while Day four and Truth are classic bloc melodic songs. Coliseum is genius. I like Real Talk and VALIS too. Team A and The Healing are the worst to me, even if Team A could be a grower. We are not good people ends the album at ultra-speed.
Four it's not Silent Alarm 2, and it lacks some momentum, but still it is the album that fans wanted. After the hyatus Bloc party seem to have the energy of a brand new group.

If this is as guitar heavy as everyone says I might have to pick it up Friday...

The Healing and Team A are the real duds. But this stands as my least favorite Bloc record, although still at least 3.5. I dunno, I was never hugely fond of Silent Alarm either so I'm at odds with the majority there
