Intimacy is great.....a very strange album though......kinda a hybrid of where Bloc were going with Flux, and Silent Alarm, very interesting album....nowhere near as classic as A Weekend In The City which could just be the album of the decade, it is that remarkable.

I will say that, as far as overall theme and lyrical arc, both A Weekend In The City and Intimacy are much better than Silent Alarm. So Kele's writing and grasp over an entire album is improving, now the music just has to coalesce just as well and they will have their GREAT album.

If Fitz stopped liking Bloc Party, the world would fall apart.

I'm sure there's some calculus formula or derivative out there that would account for the ripping of the space-time fabric if I stopped liking Bloc.

Sheesh. Those dudes need to spend more time in the studio, I can't help but feel like they're rushing things a bit more than they should be after the last album.

True. Flux is probably my favorite thing they've done since Silent Alarm, and it kinda just showed up unexpected.

Fuck. Yes.

Thank you, BoMac, for bringing some sunshine into my cloudy morning. But why does August 10th have to be so far off?!?!?

How odd because I read that they canceled a bunch of shows and postponed the Japan leg until the end of the year due to extreme tour exhaustion. So if they're so exhausted from touring all the time (which they definitely do), when the hell did they have time to record a new song? hahahaha Crazy.

"One More Chance"


whoooooooooo

Also, by the way, word is it's being played on Thursday on Radio 1, August 10th is probably a physical release.


Too bad they weren't able to promote Intimacy all that well, but they put on a killer tour.
