I pre-ordered mine. I'll get it the day it comes out. But if you guys have a link to a leak . . . well, since I already paid for mine, I won't feel bad about downloading it early.

You can always remember about it and then choose not to watch.

I actually didn't know there was a stream, so despite my sarcasm, I was quite happy about the notice.

I listened to the album leak.


 
It's like 'Halo' on steroids and 'Helicopter' on meth . . . laced with PCP.

It's a bit sad, but my Bloc Party Mt. Rushmore is entirely from the first half of Silent Alarm:

Like Eating Glass/Helicopter/Blue Light/This Modern Love

They really need to start listening to Gang of Four and Wire again.

I saw the new one is being tagged "stoner rock" and just about vomited everywhere. I still really like Octopus, so we'll see what happens. I'll hear it over the weekend, I'm sure.

It's not sad. You like what you like. Aside from maybe 'Hunting For Witches', they've never really sounded like "Silent Alarm" again. In fact, I think they change their sound from album to album, intentionally or unintentionally, I can't say. For me, I like change. I may not like everything about a new sound, but I don't like bands that stay sounding the same.

Lemon, if you enjoy 'Octopus', I think you'll find enjoyable stuff on the album. I know they're not one of your favorites, so I think you'll find at least half of it listenable.

Shit. Fuck it, I like this. I like it a lot. It's my favorite since Silent Alarm. Why? Top 5 reasons:

1. It's short
2. Bloc Party is a rock band and this ROCKS
3. Day Four
4. The nu-metal moments, while kind of bad, make me laugh. I don't know who told them this was the direction they should take, but I don't hate them for it
5. No horrible electroclash bullshit

7/10

Oh yeah, I somehow wrote this in the wrong thread this morning, and forgot to ever write it here.

I'm really happy I got to see Bloc Party when they were supporting Silent Alarm. That album blew me away at the time, and was really special. Sometimes it sorta bums me out to think about how incredibly excited I was about the band and what the future held for them, as nothing they've done since has had nearly the same impact for me (though I did end up liking Weekend quite a bit after I got over the initial "this is not even close to what I was hoping for" reaction).
