Oh, sorry.

I think it was similar to how U2 does it: I think Kele came in with the basic strong structure, riff, melody, whatever, and then all 4 of them would finish writing the song together. I'm pretty sure Matt was in charge of his drum parts and Gordy was in charge of his bass parts/keyboards/etc.

But, from everything I've read or gleaned over the years, I felt like they said the albums were always a full band product by the 4 of them. Every one of their album to date have the writing credits listed as all songs written and composed by Bloc Party.

The new songs I heard live weren't bad. Based on reactions, though, I'm not ready to hear this new one, I don't think.

You would've been even more in love, GAF, if you had been with me when I saw them in Pomona at the Glass House. That was their first show with the new lineup and she drummed the entire show wearing a tank top.

Yeah . . . all the straight guys went crazy.

My excitement is very much tempered, but I hope to be pleasantly surprised.

Finally got around to hearing The Love Within. I may finally have a Bloc Party song I hate more than Mercury. The guitar work (it's not a synth) is sabotage.

Will I listen to Hymns? Sure. I liked Four quite a bit and I'm assuming that The Love Within is just a temporary bump in the road. But wow this is a horrendous first impression.

You should all listen to the live version of Exes I posted. It's a gorgeous song.

It's a lot better. The guitar is great. Still not sure it's that good of a song though.

I was gonna say at least Mercury has a pulse and rocks the fuck out, but I just listened back to it and yes it is quite a very bad song. Not even the horns can save it. I was clearly thinking of One Month Off.

As far as "singles/first songs" go, I vote 'Ratchet' at their worst offering of such. (And that one was when Matt and Gordy were still in the band.)

I like this.



I saw them live a couple of days ago and it was a lot of fun. The hits were great of course. Silent Alarm is just one damn amazing album. They also played a bunch of new songs, including The Good News. It's definetely very different from their past stuff and The Good News isn't representative. The majority of the songs were pretty droney, repetitive with lots of synths.

It's streaming. The Love Within is the worst song at least. I don't think many people are going to like it. I think there are some decent songs on there but don't trust me, being a huge BP apologist. It sounds more like a Kele solo record than anything else. I don't think Russel Lissack had much influence. Different Drugs, Virtue and Exes are all pretty good.
