That's when you know you found somebody special. When you can just shut the f*ck up for a minute, and comfortably share silence.

They sound exactly like Streetlight Manifesto, except

not as good.
you tell me who's better. i think good charlote are better than the bealtes but that's only because their lyrics mean more and they are better musicians.

i bought their album, pretty good i must say, worth it. Not a full album album IMO if you get what i mean, more good for a few tracks.

i think that bloc party is a mix of indie rock and post-punk. either way they are awesome!
#11
Most of you guys think their post-punk? I think that's a little weird. Many off their songs is like... a little slow, like in normal rock songs... most post-punk is freegin fast!

I think theyre a great band

a bit boring now and then

but some of their tracks are top notch tunage.


i cant wait for the new album
#15
Actually, I'm really not that excited for the new album. I doubt their going to do anything new. It's just going to be more tracks that are basically an extension of Silent Alarm.

"Two More Years" is good, but it's just another "Silent Alarm" song really.
#16
i really do like them as well, the album had great staying power and i still like most of it today. People do underestimate how popular the guys are, also they're popular but not darn awful like the kooks or something. Plus they broke america, BONUS POINTS
#19
i like em. Their album dint even release in india. I got it shipped from the uk. it rocked. I would call it their own kind of music with indie and post punk influences.....also some rock ifluences.
like eating glass and she's hearing voices are neat songs.
the modern love owns though.
peace

Heard a couple of new tracks the other day, 'Uniform' was pretty good but the other one (something about 7.18) was a bit crappy.

Man, about a month ago I couldn't stop listening to This Modern Love, it's now firmly my most favouritist Bloc Party song.

I like them, I think the album tails off horrendously towards the end, and I can't believe they did a remix album after one record (all seemed a bit Linkin Park to me), but besided that the first half of the album was really strong I thought.
#31
im looking forward to hearing bloc party's follow-up ..really because i dont know what to expect from it...i dont think they'll be able to emulate what they done on silent alarm though...i really liked banquet, helicopter and the other singles they released.

mofaster....where is this song! i GOTTA hear it. love the bloc...love peaches! i think a remix would blow my mind socket
#33
They're good. The album is good. Pretty catchy. The singer's good a mature voice. I like that. I really do. That turns me on. It really does. I don't like doing this. I'm really bored. I really am. I like dogs. I hate cats. I like killing cats. I really do.
Help?
Did you see the stylish kids in the riot?

I hate AVA. They sound like U2 and Rush getting beat up by Panic at the Fall Out Boy.

They've got a new album?! Have I been living under a rock or is this a lie? Silent Alarm was soo good... Well the first half was, the second half grew on me though

The second half is really good too, just different. It took me a few listens to begin to appreciate it.

Great band. I never really get tired of "Silent Alarm" I can't wait for their next album.

Gah, it's so annoying when record companies do that, it's just a easy way of them making a few more bucks. It really cheeses me off that they don't admit that either, they always say things like:

"We really feel that a re-release at this point in time will enable it to reach more people, and spread their [the band's] music to a wider range of people"

Yeah, and my nan's a Paratrooper
