(Now, COBL, it's time to move on to A Weekend In The City for a completely different kind of mind-blowingly awesome Bloc Party experience.
'Waiting For The 7.18' makes me cry, it's that good! )
Once I have my car, and I can start spending money again, it'll be the first album I get

Yeah, it didn't jump out at me at all, but now I'm really digging it. Listened to Compliments like 10 times in two days.

We sit and we sigh
And nothing gets done
So right, so clued-up
We just get old
And all the while
Being torn assunder
Nicotine and bacteria

i like the fact that they are experimenting...but honestly the sound was the best on first album. not saying that the new songs are bad, but i somehow prefer them live than recorded.

Note! This message is for those who the Silent Alarm Remixed album. I am desperately seeking a copy of 'Helicopter' from that album. Why, you may ask? Because last night, while I was at Mynt (a local "night club") they played Helicopter. I knew it was a remix, and I want to relive the moment. I was going off my tits, I was that into it. Shame no one else had even heard it before, let alone know what it was. So I would have looked like a right idiot, but I was smashed, and, who cares?

Must have been a personal mix

OK, somehow I didn't know they were playing the new HOB in Boston until like last week. I'm on their email list, and I have you guys, plus I've been waiting for years. Luckily though I found someone to sell me a ticket for a decent price, phew.

i was reading somewhere that one of the songs off the most recent street dogs album is a blatant rip-off of "positive tension." i can kind of hear it if i turn my head sideways, stand on my head, and blink my eyes while i listen. in other words, i don't really get it. but this website swore it was so, ergo i took a listen.

anyway, the relavent part of this was: other point the thing i was reading made was that everything since silent alarm was crap.

i didn't like it. but oddly enough, the street dogs song that supposedly rips it off is one of two of their songs i don't like either.

I absolutely love that video, way to mess up Harryhausen's innocent animations.

BTW last night was amazing, the sound is about the only thing that was improved in the transition from Avalon to House of Blues but Bloc was excellent
