bloc party29 Sep 2005
Amanda had a few Bloc Party songs that I had liked, so I went ahead and grabbed Silent Alarm from emusic (the end of the month song-purge).
I am digging it quite a bit, although I am on the second listen and I am already tiring of it a little – it might not be an album that holds up to repeated listens. But, I am liking it. Everyone is saying it, but it definitely reminds me a lot of Gang of Four, and something else I can’t put my finger on. I am tempted to say Blur, but I think that’s just because his voice sounds a little like Damon Albarn (and the british accent doesn’t hurt).
