I like "Halo" a lot, although its probably not one of the standouts.

Here's the info for the physical CD.

Bloc Party Reveal Details of Physical Intimacy | Pitchfork

So when are those of us who ordered the digital and physical release going to have the CDs sent to us?

Funny, I was just reading about this.

I don't like that Ion Square is no longer the final song on the album. I'm hoping they are just looking at the other songs as bonus tracks, but then again, Talons is inserted before it, so who knows.

"Ion Square" should close out the CD, also what the heck is "Flux" doing there? Didn't they rerelease AWITC with Flux on it?

My physical version arrived in the mail. There is a gap in the tracklisting on the back between Ion Square and the other 3 songs, but how many people are really going to notice that?

Ironically, Flux is the ONLY song mentioned on the little sticker on the front of the album....


The few songs I listened to in the car sounded great though, gotta love CD quality.

I liked the 2 new tracks quite a bit on first listen.


Where the hell has Fitz been lately?

I didn't do the pre-order. I simply waited to buy it in the local store for only $10.

I'm curious if the version in the stores is the same as the pre-order. My CD has remixes of both Mercury and Talons at the end of it, in addition to the other four bonus tracks (not including the original version of Talons, which is Track 9).

I grabbed it up today, noticed a gap in between Ion Square and the bonuses, but I didn't look at it much, didn't notice remixes though (not that I'll be heartbroken without them) but yeah Flux was the only track highlighted on the packaging.

Hmm, I didn't have remixes on mine. Just 3 bonus tracks, Letter To My Son, Your Visits Are Getting Shorter, and Flux. Where did you get it, maybe it's a location specific type thing (Best Buy does that sort of thing)?

The "physical album" is identical except Talons is now in the actual tracklist (right after Zephyrus I believe).

Wait, just three bonus tracks? I have four, not including the two remixes. The last bonus song is Idea For A Story. You don't have that?

I do my music shopping at a local independent music store.

Apparently I got an indie store exclusive version with the additional three tracks (Idea For A Story and the two remixes). I found this online:

Not too surprising, but still sad for nostalgic reasons, I think CD singles are sort of a dinosaur now that you can buy a b-side for $1 from iTunes.
