An argument that will never be resolved I reckon......but I'm almost fundamentally Weekend In The City.

Silent Alarm is more "indie-tastic"
Since I have very little idea about indie music, could you clarify what you mean by that?

Is there any real definition for it?

I've always thought it referred to debut albums that all the alternative folk hype up before it gets played on radio or they become mainstream - kinda like the crowd, "I only listen to music that no-one else has heard of" and then the band gets big and they all jump off the bandwagon.....

Indie's a dodgy term though - shortened form of independent.

Ah I see, that's what I was assuming you were referring to, I'm not a huge fan of those people.

Cheers.

So I'm trying out my own tracklisting of "A Weekend In The City" with some b-sides that I think are better than the album tracks or, if not better, than just as good. I think I like this much better:


1. Song For Clay (Disappear Here)
2. Hunting For Witches
3. Waiting For The 7.18
4. Secrets
5. Version 2.0
6. The Prayer
7. The Once And Future King
8. Kreuzberg
9. I Still Remember
10. Atonement
11. England
12. SRXT


Not quite sure about TOAFK; though it is an awesome, kick-ass song, it's more "Silent Alarm"-y and might not fit in with AWITC.

But the rest is

I'm saving 'Flux' for "Intimacy". I think it fits in much better on that album.

This was the original thread, pre-"Intimacy".

This thread needs to stay, its the all out Bloc Party discussion, the other one is focused on Intimacy.

I think AWTIC is excellent the way it is, I'd only look to find a way to get England and Vision of Heaven, I adore Atonement and many of the album's other b-sides but I think those are the only ones that would go with it. Kreuzberg is the only song I wouldn't mind seeing replaced, although it works just fine on the album.

I'm not a big fan of 'Where Is Home?' or 'Uniform', though 'Uniform' is fun live, I just don't really like it all that much on the album. 'On' and 'Sunday' are great and I have no problems with them, I just wanted to tackle some of the "problems" that a lot of the critics had with AWITC, which is that the 2nd half is just too slow and bogged down. That's why I wanted to throw 'Atonement' and 'The Once And Future King' in there and move 'The Prayer' down in the track order a bit.

I'm just playing around with it. I've already changed it since yesterday. I took out 'Secrets' and put in 'We Were Lovers' a bit later in the album.

Also, do any of you live in New York City and are free on September 18th?

Bloc are doing a FREE concert! The venue has yet to be determined, but they are doing a contest on iMeen (you have to join and become one of their friends) where you create your own setlist, include at least 5 or 6 songs that they want to play that night in your setlist (they give you a list of songs to choose from), and the setlist with the most positive feedback gets that person and a friend guaranteed into the free show!

Now that's one more reason I SO WISH I lived in Manhattan!!!!!
