You guys all think that Bloc party is terrible and sucks?
They in my opinion will go down as the most unrecoginized bands of all time.
They are honestly way better than most most bands i've heard, not just that Bloc party is extremely unique in so many ways.


THAT IS ALL.

It's aight. I enjoyed "Silent Alarm" and "Weekend In the City" for different reasons, but I loved em both. This one is just too electronic. In fact, the electronic aspect isn't what bothers me. It's how contrived it all feels, because it's coming from Bloc Party of all bands! It was just too quick and bland of a shift in sound. There certainly are strong tracks on here, like "Talons" and "Biko" among others, but it generally only hit on point in patches to me.

Duh, of course the band rules. First three albums are (near)-classics for me. Together with the Arctic Monkeys albums probably the band I've listened to the most. I got through 2007 with only Favorite Worst Nightmare and Weekend In The City - every other music then was totally unnecessary, 'cept for maybe Neon Bible. Shame I can't do that anymore.

You betcha!



Closest I've gotten since then is when David Comes To Life and Vacation came out in 2011. Every bike, bus, train or car ride where instantaneously provided with a soundtrack.

IT'S MORE A QUESTION OF FEELING THAN IT IS A QUESTION OF FUN



Gonna jam it right after Silent Alarm finishes here.

yeah I still jam it once or twice a week cos it's really great running music

all these dudes from both bands can really fuckin play too

nothing crazy technical but they are so so tight and both tong and helders are beasts behind the kit
