you know what i love about bloc party? their lyrics don't rhyme. it's like, kele doesnt even care, hes so awesome he doesn't need to bother with that rhyming bullshit. I know there are other bands that don't rhyme but it is kind of unusual, and even though Bloc Party doesn't have the best lyrics they do have some interesting lines, and something about Kele's rhythm and melodies make it easy to remember the words even without rhymes (assuming you can understand him )

The vocals are certainly bizzare. When I listened to AWITC for the first time, I read along with the lyric booklet. The lyrics are never vocalised the way you'd kind of expect them to be. Very unconventional, which I surprise makes Kele's vocal especially engaging.

Waiting For The 7.18 has a ripper of a lyric. So identifiable....

Word. Although his distinictive style on tracks like Banquet, is most entertaing, he does have a strong voice to sing normally with as well like on I Still Remember. But then again he has so many styles, anyone who read the lyrics to SRXT would never expect it to sound like it does when he sings it.

Also, their drummer is probably most impressive of any 2000's era band.

I was SO HAPPY when I read the lyrics to Song For Clay (Disappear Here) for the first time. It's basically an homage to one of my favorite authors/novelists!

Song For Clay (Disappear Here) is a reference to Bret Easton Ellis and his work.

You may have heard of Ellis' first novel, Less Than Zero, and the opening line to Less Than Zero is: "People are afraid to merge on the freeway." And Clay is a character in the novel (or the brother of the main character, I can't remember, been a long time since I've read it).

In fact, I think Clay also appears in Ellis' second novel, The Rules Of Attraction, or maybe Clay's in his third novel, American Psycho. I can't remember now. I haven't read them in a while. Bret Easton Ellis is AWSEOME!

Just like Bloc Party!
