Great song... great album. The whole CD has a good energy without getting repetitive or cheesy. If you like this song, I'd *strongly* recommend you get this album (one of my new favorties, thanks to RP!)
Wow. You must be listening to a different file, somehow. . . .

It's exactly like eating glass; and that is the only thing good about this noise.

Wow, I just upgraded my rating from a "2" to an "8." Don't think I've ever done that before. EDIT: One of my friends swears that the line is "Like drinking body shots, like eating glass." I tried to convince him otehrwise but he still thinks that's what they say.

Wow, this is pretty hot stuff! Very energetic sound. Unfamiliar with this band, but I'll have to check out some other cuts.

anyone else almost hear robert smith behind this?

I have my first live Bloc Party experience this Saturday. I can hardly sit still!!
Now you're just playing this after the Robert Plant tune because the beginning sounds like "Rock and Roll" - aren't you? :silenced:
Pleasant as eating glass. With no salt. 1.

there used to be a time when I would have considered this noisy garbage ... but now this song just feels right for the moment ... and that moment endures since almost a year.
I know what you mean. Same thing here. But RP helps make you feel a littlebit better with their beautiful music.
Edgy like eating glass=9!
Bloc Party had to grow on me, but they grew in a big way.

It makes Me feel like I'm passing glass. My kids love this band, but i just don't get it. Nice cover art tho.
Old fart comment #1003: Instead of this latter-day fakery, can we replace Bloc Party with the genuine article like Gang of Four?

I love RP. RP is my buddy. Nice rocking tune. Bill & Rebecca definitely listen to The Blue Room on the BBC.
It feels nostalgic already.
Loved them in Austin...they really blew a lot of people away who weren't expecting this. Great drums on the track, though the overall development's a bit lacking. Still pretty good.
Too many generic comments using the word generic to describe any recent musical offerings. This lot will survive the cull.
This has an edginess to it-like eating glass. Outstanding.
Not my favorite song on this album ("This Modern Love"), but just listen to that texture.
Song is growing on me....early Police?
I love Bloc Party! A friend gave me the album a month or two ago and it didn't strike me at first, but after listening to it more, I really like it, it's got great energy!

Banquet got shot down when I uploaded it...lame lame lame... Maybe someone else wants to resubmit? Shame we can't hear the rest of this album. I'd suggest tracks 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13 or 14...Just my thoughts
heheheeee you should hear the new single AWsome!!!!
oooo you should hear the new single Two more years!!!
Ah yes. Bloc Party, The Killers, Arcade Fire, and Kaiser Chiefs. The "it" bands of the moment. Of course, in today's music industry "it" bands have a supremely high turnover rate. Remember when The Darkness was hailed as "the next big thing"?

Can we have more Bloc Party uploaded? The 3 currently played are all fantastic, but so is the rest of the album. How about Banquet and Positive Tension?

I agree! I just purchased the album last week and this song really pumped me up driving down the freeway last Friday night ... that is until traffic came to a halt around a couple lanes of closed traffic, 100 flares, about a dozen cop cars and one mysterious, stalled semi (& maybe some broken glass). I don't know what that was about, but I dig this album! :drummer:

For some reason I see Pee Wee Herman enjoying this

More recently, I heard a second Bloc party song that was different than this and better. I'll stay open to them until I hear a few more songs, maybe this one is not the best first-listen for this band.
f-f-f-f-f-f-f-fren-fren-FRENETIC!

More exclamation points please!!!!!
Nice follow to Sonic Youth. I must look into these guys more! :jump:

And I add: it's an aquired taste, like all great bands are. Musique pour connaisseurs!

Great example for future historians of what generic disposable popular music was like in 2005. When it first came on, I assumed it was by The Killers .... same difference, except Bloc Party probably has $1M less in their bank account.

It may not be a great song but it is fun to hear what RP thinks are its forefathers in terms of influences. ...and now i totally hear the U2 guitar in the Bloc Party tune. I may not always like the cousine but it's always interesting to meet other parts of the family, right?
Deliciously dissonant

Just saw them perform last night at the Commodore Ballroom here in Vancouver. Great show, lots of energy. They opened with this song, too.
What a total and complete disaster.
I like that , punch in it

huge Sonic Youth fan here... and i hear no SY whatsoever in this music.
However, Bill did segue SY's "New Hampshire" into this.........
Good fire in it, but I suspect that it will be another disposable track/artist. Hope time proves me wrong.
The more I hear these blokes the better I like them.

I'd like to know how the drummer feels after playing a gig. Awesome.
Dunno, but I'll have a pint of whatever he's drinking!

The Fall meets early U2
This is the second time I caught just the end of this. I thought both times that it sounded like Sonic Youth.

Back to the garage, but with possibility...
:-k Not going to be released for another 3 weeks. Hmm. According to some, RP doesn't play any new stuff. 8.
