Anyone know how to get the Deluxe version of Silent Alarm? I can't find it anywhere on their site. Is it only available to members of the official fansite?

You can get it in HMV etc. It's on general release.

I saw them live tonight at the Wherehouse. They put on one hell of a show. One of the best I've seen by an Indie band. They were in to it, and so was the crowd. Place was packed. One hell of a show though, disappointed they didn't play "2 More Years"

The Warehouse in Houston? Haha, awesome.

Unfortunately, I'm not very familiar with this band. The only three songs I've heard are Banquet, Helicopter, and Blue Light, but I really like all three of them. If anyone has any recommendations, feel free to post 'em up. Otherwise I'll just go back through the thread and see what other people have said.

I still like this band and would probably see them live if I had the chance, but recently I've started to go off of Kele's vocal style, especially in songs like Helicopter where it just seems like he is shouting. =/

I think they are a classic example of a band that got uber hyped by the press and struggle to live up to it. Don't get me wrong some of their songs are amazing and I still really like them, I just think that like with the Arctic Monkeys now that the dust has settled I've noticed the flaws in their music a lot more.

I have a love hate relationship with Bloc Party, I like their sound and I like their kind of off color/indieness, but the instrumentals are louder than the guys voice so it's hard for me to hear what hes saying. I generally just listen for the sake of listening rather than memorizing lyrics and whatnot.

This is the first I've heard of a new album... I don't mean to sound cynical or whatever but I doubt it'll be better than Silent Alarm.

*edit* Cheers Getaway fan, I'll give them a listen some time soon.

That album cover looks pretty cool, thanks for the link also.

I hope their new album is more or less as good as silent alarm. Otherwise I probably won't buy it, maybe just download the single or somewhat.

Nevertheless im looking forward to whatever they come up with.

No-problem, they are one of the best bands out there so why not share?

I don't think this will compare to Silent Alarm but we can only hope.

=/ I looked, but had a hard time finding other sources [save wikipedia] confirming the album. it's not even up on Bloc party's fsan site, or their own site.

Still, they once again impress me with their album art, if this is in fact the real thing. I'll probably buy it.
