VOH is great but Atonement just gets to me so much...although some of the vocals really remind me of Echo & the Bunnymen...not that that's a bad thing.

OMG! I just heard "Atonement"!

WHY WASN'T THAT ON THE ALBUM!!!! DAMN!



(And I listened to "Vision of Heaven" for a 2nd time. Liked it better than the 1st time I heard it. I think it's good, but still not great. )

"Atonement"!!!!

When I first saw this, I had only looked at the Southern California/Los Angeles dates.

Now I see that they're going to be playing at Webster Hall the exact week I'm going to be in New York!!!!

I reckon the best sequence of songs on an album in 2008 was:

Kreuzberg
I Still Remember
Sunday

Absolutely, mesmerising, if only for the lyrics alone.

Well, I talked to my friends, and I guess we're going to try and get tickets to the Mayan show in L.A. and then the Webster Hall show in New York.



And yes: Kreuzberg into I Still Remember into Sunday is just pure bliss!

^^Word.

I'm considering going to the V festival, don't know if it'll work out. But I'm going to be really mad if they skip Boston again after they did that last fall.

Just heard "The Present"!!! My God, these B-sides are as friggin' good as the A-sides!!!

This band consistently blows me away with their PURE AWESOMENESS!!!!

I hope they pull out some new songs at the shows. My friends and I got tickets to Los Angeles (The Mayan) and New York (Webster Hall) . . . and best of all, my BEST friend has never seen them and doesn't really know them that well, so I bought her a ticket to the L.A. show. I'm so excited that I'm going to get to introduce her to Bloc Party live!!!!

I can't wait!!!!

Atomic, do you still have this song? Can you send it to me, please.

fitzchivalry@gmail.com

Also, do you have "Version 2.0". That B-side is impossible for me to find to download. If you have it, could you send that one as well.

Thank you!!!!
