quote Their site
Bloc Party is an autonomous unit of un-extraordinary kids reared on pop culture between the years of 1976 and the present day. Like many such kids, between them they eventually concluded that their own attempts to imitate what had informed them could be construed as a worthy variation on the many forms that preceded. They do everything that's required to conform to the currently received ideas of what a band is: ostensibly to play instruments at the same time, but also have a title for the work created.

I saw them on "later with Jools Holland" making their TV debut with "Like Eating Glass" which was a good song. but after that I sort of forgot about them, that is until I saw that they were nominated for a N.M.E award. after that I tried downloading " Like Eating Glass" and "Helicopter" and strangely enough my father bought the album. I havent had much of a listen yet but I still reckon they're pretty good.

I never have heard that much of Bloc Party, but I do like most of the songs I've heard by them ("Talons" is one of my favorites). I haven't heard any of their new album yet, but I haven't heard very good things about it.

Total miss-out on a ten year anniversary deluxe edition of Silent Alarm. I'd love to re-buy the album with additional b-sides. It needs to be done.

eehhhhhh.... I'm not really sure how to feel about this.
honestly, I felt silent alarm was their finest work. everything after just began to move in a direction I found myself enjoying less with each subsequent release. certainly, there were stand-out tracks on each album, and even Kele's solo work, but I've found myself less interested in what's to come over the years.

I bought Silent Radar at a pawn shop the other day. I'd heard a lot about them but hadn't actually listened to them. It's a pretty good album, nothing extraordinary, but good.
this is one of my favorite albums now, weird

Video for Ratchet



I like it a lot, but I preferred the version they performed live in Cologne a bit better. Unfortunately the video's gone down for that one.

Trippy clip.
