How is it the same song over and over?

I think what you meant to say is: everything by Linkin Park is just the same song over and over.

Yeah, they're good. I saw them live and they were pretty amazing. I heard that lots of people are calling the guitarist the next Hendix?

i was disappointed by their live show. it was moderately lame. i think i would've needed to be drunk to fully appreciate it.

not to mention the pavement was really hot that day and the bottoms of my favorite shows melted.

I hate all their songs apart from 'Like eating glass'. They sound so annoying, and are just a boring mainstraim indie band. They're one of the few indie/ alt bands I dislike alot.

haha i think its hilarious the amount of people who know nothing about bloc party...
for example... my brother kept telling me that bloc party were just another one of those uk bands trying to be the next franz....so i sat him down and we listened to the album and most songs as they started i said to him 'who does this sound like?' and many times he was unable to come up with an answer.
...anywhoo 2 days later he had to go away for a few days and he says to me he says 'can you burn me bloc party' and i just laughed....

the moral of this story kids is LISTEN TO THE WHOLE OF SILENT ALARM!!!

They're pretty good, I liked them. I remember back a while ago in 2003 or 2004 when they were supposedly going to be the "new big thing".

Not really, but I loooove their song "Compliments." It's so much better than the wannabe-catchy dance crap they make.

Like Eating Glass's lyrics are some of the most brilliant I've ever read regarding a viewpoint on religion.

I like the guitar lines, the songwriting can be obtuse at times. They're vastly written off via Banquet and Helicopter, but I think Like Eating Glass, Positive Tension and Luno are perhaps the three songs that best represent Bloc Party to me.

I really like them. Silent Alarm is a bit of a mixed bag, though. On one hand, you have great songs like Like Eating Glass, So Here We Are, Blue Light, Helicopter, and Luno, and then on one hand you have filler like Price of Gas, Plans, and She's Hearing Voices.

But goddamn I love their guitar tone.
Poor advice.

they're ok in my book, but some of the songs on Silent Alarm are forgettable. Like Eating Glass, Helicopter, Banquet, Positive Tension, and Compliments are great songs, the others kinda of drag along. i don't think i could label them as trying too hard to do anything in any way...just they don't particularly hit a home run with this album (maybe more of a line drive double ).

I quite like them. Pioneers and Blue Light have to be my favourite songs on SA. Russels a good guitarist, I'd say he's definately a Radiohead fan. Unfortunately for them, their live show is pants.

Bloc Pary?

Bloc Party are alright I guess, their drummers good and they have some interesting guitar work and a unique sound. But overall they are a bit of a boring band really.

If you listen to the album in excess, it sucks. I might put it in my player once every month or so and it's really nice

They're alright, but for me they're just background music. Nothing that really stands out.

Bloc Party are one of the best bands around today. The only band I like more than them are the Mars Volta...

Anyways, I can't wait for the new CD this year.

Silent Alarm is the album of 2005.


Definitely one of the best of 2005, in my opinion.

Banquet, Little thoughts, so here we are, positive tension, helicopter, two more years, like eating class, tulips - they have so many good songs, and all sound unique to me.
