Bloc Party – Silent Alarm

21 04 2011

Listened: Tuesday March 8

What was I thinking back in 2005 when Silent Alarm came out? It’s brilliant and I totally missed it. I also totally missed seeing them at Coachella 2006. Regrets, I’ve had a few. “Something glorious is about to happen” – I should have listened.

I didn’t even actually own the album until the project. I had (possibly illegally) downloaded a bunch of tracks and had tried to build the album, poorly. I’m glad I got it all legal and sorted out now.

Every song is a shoutalong, leg-bouncing good time. There have been moments at work that it’s been the only thing keeping me sane, even just in the few times I’ve listened to it in its complete form.
