5.0 out of 5 stars Bloc Rockin' Beats (Sorry, bad pun I know). 25 May 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Britannic art rock good enough to have franz quaking in their boots... Quite simply one of the most exciting and infectious songs you are likely to hear this side of 2005. Kele's vocals have and angst ridden, intravenous quality, backed up with darkly uplifting angular guitars which you cannot help but move your converse clad feet to. To the man who's enjoyment was spoiled by a "passing resemblance to 'rich' by the yyy's", pay no mind - this is a five star track through and through. "I'm on fire so stub me out!"

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome 2 July 2004
Format:Audio CD
Proof that you should really get into this whole art rock thing, honestly this country hasn't produced a band as good as this for a very long time...don't believe me? just take a look at the CD's you've bought in the last 2 or 3 years and you won't find anything quite as thrilling as 'banquet'... especially from the UK. Bring on the album.

5.0 out of 5 stars Art-pop-post-punk-funk-rocksters 6 May 2004
Format:Audio CD
Or something.
Putting genre aside, Bloc Party have cornered a unique niche, and are repeatedly splatting it, by exponentially extruding in a very definite and self assured direction.
'Banquet' will have even the dance-shy members of population jumping around like a flea that has unwittingly burnt its legs by landing on a hot potatoe. Ouch.
Yes, I recommend you get this, prance around, get knackered, prance a bit more, then get annoyed cos you've become addicted, and wanna listen to more.
Verdict: PH-phat with a lush chorus
oops. I got so carried away, i forgot to describe the music in hand. Its kind of guitarry, with a whole load of drums, a good big helping of bass and sprinkled with a topping of fresh vocal.
Basically, this 'aint no salad. Or something.

5.0 out of 5 stars A spectacular debut 24 April 2004
Format:Audio CD
From the moment I heard this song I knew it was the beginning of somethingspecial. Very few songs raise the hairs on the back of my neck and keepthe standing long after the finish. Funky and gritty with an early 8o'sfeel to it all. Bloc Party should be on your list of bands to watch in2004. Superb.
