so here we are is incredible, in fact i think the first 8 or 9 songs on silent alarm are pretty much all flawless, the rest lets it down a little bit (including two more years and little thoughts there)

intimacy loses me with every listen.

Thanks Fitz! Loved those clips. I went ahead and ordered Silent Alarm. I am looking forward to it arriving on my doorstep on Tuesday.

Silent Alarm is certainly their best. Intimacy is good too but some songs are just weak (Mercury, Zephyrus...)

Certainly? Forums... where opinions coalesce into facts in mere fractions of a second.

AWITC is my favorite.

Don't worry about it, I think it's "certainly" their best as well.

My favorite is A Weekend in the City as well, but, I do like the first album a lot as well.

The A Weekend in the City B-sides are cracking, as well.

Bloc Party's Matt Tong to leave the band?

Bloc Party's Kele Okereke working on solo album


I know they're all just rumors and speculation, but I DO NOT like the part where Matt says - I'm sure Kele, Russell and Gordon will all do something in the future . . .

Not good news. But I think they definitly need a break. And Matt said they will do something together again in the future so I'm not too worried.

Kele's interviews around the release of Intimacy really seemed to hint that Bloc Party's days were numbered.

Well, maybe Kele will go it alone solo for a while. Honestly, without Matt and Russell, I don't know how far he'll get. The four of them have a chemistry, especially Kele and Matt, and I just think Kele may be surprised that people might not be as interested in him without the other 3.

I get a bit of a "Billy Corgan" control-freak vibe from Kele . . . just from interviews, both written and filmed. Just kind of an unspoken subtext from some interviews I've seen or read.

Who knows? Maybe they're just all sick of each other right now and after a year or so break, they'll be more than happy to re-group.

well i wasn't really looking forward to them going down the house/club road... if all they've been able to come up with over the past few months is one more chance then maybe they do need a break.
