Anyways, listened to this again today. It's definitely growing on me quickly.

Kettling, Day Four, V.A.L.I.S. and Truth especially are great great songs. I like Octopus more than I did at first and So He Begins to Lie is great. Really I think the only thing on it I don't like is 3x3 and whichever song sounds like some screamo song.
Staring into the camera talking, randomly echo-ing out certain words and that whole cal joke thing to make it look like you're not just a douche who stands in front of his camera espousing douchey opinions on music is possibly even more annoying than just standing in front of the camera. If I worked at a store that sold cameras, I'd probably get fired for looking at people and telling them, "no, you cannot buy this. You look like the type to set it up in your bedroom and make YouTube videos." Then I might tell them to go to the mall, or make them listen to walking on sunshine...or something.

Although I did watch his bloc party review video and the fact that he didn't think it was that amazing was the reason I bothered to check it out at all. I didn't go all cobbler, I actually have heard some bloc party before. And it was ok. But worlds busiest douche with a camera didn't like it too much, so I may just check it out. Pretty decent. But again, nothing I really care about hearing again. There seems to be a lot of that going on here, and I'm glad I don't make end of the year lists because I'd have to do three. Stuff I liked, stuff I hated, and stuff that was good but I didn't want to hear it again.

I listened to this on the way into work this morning but all it achieved was putting Plans in my head all day. Which I don't mind, cos its a great song.

Some real bangers on here. Octopus and The Healing stood out to me on first listen, though the album as a whole seems a bit uneven.

Forgot to tell you guys that I saw their show in Seattle while on vacation. They fucking BLEW THE PLACE AWAY!!!! Amazing. I'm not sure I've ever seen them ROCK that hard. I was second on the rail and the mosh pit was insane! They pretty much stayed away from all their electronic stuff except for two songs. They even did 'Signs' non-electronic, non-xylophone -- just drums, bass, guitar and vocals. It was pretty awesome.

Around the middle, Matt said into his microphone that it was the best show of their tour, so far. Then, towards the end, Kele told a story of how playing Seattle that night was so great for them because, the last time they played Seattle was when (for all intents and purposes) they broke up. He said they got in a huge fight after the show and basically just agreed to finish out the tour and then break up. So, to be back in Seattle and have it be (as Matt said) the best show of the tour, really meant a lot to them.

Being the fanboy that I am, that story brought tears to my eyes.

It was insane! I think 'We're Not Good People' was around the time I got pushed off the rail and went a little farther back into the crowd. I'm old and couldn't compete with those youngins and their moshing.

Fantastic, amazing energy though. Definitely a show I will remember!

Closing with "This Modern Love" would have literally killed me on the spot. LITERALLY.

That's a pretty sweet set. The first four songs off Silent Alarm, This Modern Love, Flux, Waiting for the 7:18, most of the good tunes off the new one (no Truth?? damn). Still waiting for them to announce shows here.
