This band can suck my dick. Song is repetitive, annoying, and as such...blows.

Never cared about these guys so much, silent alarm is an excellent album, the rest is just ok , I guess.

Silent Alarm was great. Haven't really gotten around to the rest of their discog yet.
I'll give it a listen.

If I think Silent Alarm is incredible and the rest of their stuff is garbage would I like this? Probably not I'm guessing.

It has some of their best songs - We Were Lovers, Rhododendrons, Once and Future King, Atonement... The whole thing rules

Song is pretty catchy, but that's about it. Really hoping the rest of Four is better

At first I really disliked it, its grown on me a lot on repeated listens. Still seems like a strange choice for a lead single though, makes me worry about the rest of the album.

It's embarrassingly catchy. Like, not something I'd wanna be caught singing or listening to but not bad

This is so bad. Band is so good though, album should still have some killer material.

Silent Alarm is pretty much a classic. I've never listened to their other albums, though.

Damn, I was expecting more Intimacy. I think that's their best album by far. Song's...alright. Repetitive.

decent chorus, the rest of the song is kind of lacking.

Chorus is the best part of this song, but it's not bad at all. Stopped paying attention after Silent Alarm, is the rest worth it?

Also, the bass is always the highlight of this band. ALWAYS.

It was my understanding that Intimacy was the weakest of the releases. This a fair statement?

Yeah man it's just dull and repetitive. The vocals are annoying too. Even Matt Tong's drumming is boring
