About this deal

To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Due to inventory and accounting purposes, we do not exchange items received for different items than originally purchased. Ace 2005 debut LP that mixes fizzing post punk and simmering melodies against Kele's emotive songwriting / singing . In the edit page, go to the 'Metadata' tab and add your Juno artist, label or release page for listeners to purchase your release / releases. As dynamic as Silent Alarm is, it’s not perfect: Kele Okereke’s yelpy vocals get a little grating on the less melodic songs, and the second half of the album doesn’t quite sustain the momentum it had at the beginning, although the bonus remixes of “Plans” by Mogwai, and “Pioneers”” by M83 help make up for this.

Their debut Silent Alarm showcased their tight, energetic sound which married propulsive indie-rock to danceable rhythms. A large slab of credit must go to drummer Matt Tong whose rampant playing propelled the songs along at breakneck speed. Building on their 2001 EP 'The Modern Age', the band members moulded compositions largely through live takes during.

Although probably unnoticable for those of who only heard Helicopter on the radio, all of the songs on Bloc Party have some magnificent depth and layering to them. Certain items can take longer to source than the estimated week, particularly during busy trading periods and may take longer to arrive at our warehouse.

Products labelled '*item fulfilled by Exertis on behalf of hmv' will be supplied to you directly by Exertis via their approved couriers. The great single “Banquet” and even better opening track, “Like Eating Glass,” put Bloc Party’s heart-on-sleeve emotions in the service of tight, energetic songwriting that makes their earnestness a little easier to swallow. This album's a soundscape for the time it was made, can make you feel nostalgic for the mid-2000's even if you've never heard the songs before. There's no self-glorification and no hard-sell behind London's brightest young things, no pomp and no pretence. It lies at the heart of the album, in Matt Tong's relentlessly creative drum patterns and frantic fills.Styled more along the lines of a revolutionary cell than a band, Bloc Party approach the medium of rock'n'roll with the sort of high seriousness usually reserved for philosophy lectures.
