This is one fantastic single. I'm getting Bloc Party's Album 'Silent Alarm' based on this. I've seen them live at the NME tour (and got hit in the forehead by their drumstick which then fell into someones hands) they were absolutely immense live and Helicopter was the best song. Its got very tight guitar lines and lyrics that really go with the music. This song is really something special and Bloc Party can and will go far.
The B-side is also an excellent song, which is rare in bands now. You should buy this single and when you like it go out and get the album too!

Excellent CD single. The Helicopter song really stands out, its one of the best bloc party songs in my opinion. ive also got the 6 track bloc party EP and that is also excellent. Their
album should be coming out in January and Feburary, different labels having different release dates.
I Hope this band make it big as do alot of good bands at the moment like The Bravery and Thirteen Seasons.

Catchy opening+ great lyrics and great guitaring throughout. Not everyone likes indie, why i asked? Main stream pop rubbish!

This song is incredibly addictive, also somewhat darker in compared to other Bloc party songs, i think everyone should just buy this just to here Kele say Bravado, but anyways this is a very kool song, the always new depths isn't the best Bloc party song, but its got a nice feel, and something new. The tulips remix is pretty kool, although i missed some Matt's drumming, but anyhoo the song has less romantic feel compared to the so its something different. anyways buy this.

A Single Worth Owning. 18 Sept. 2005
By Chillbra8000 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Helicopter isn't really my favorite song on "Silent Alarm," but you should own the song "Always New Depths." It is arguably one of Bloc Party's greatest songs, by far. I think this is the only cd its on so I strongly recommend you get this, as well as their excellent debut "Silent Alarm."

Guitars 8 April 2005
By PontyPine - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This EP is fantastic, it's like how all EPs should be, the B sides as good as the A side, it reminds of getting a Stone Roses, Smiths or New Order EP where you would get tracks that weren't on the album but could have been there if they'd had the room to fit them on. Anyway this band remind me strongly of Ride for no particular reason and I just have to say that the track 'Always New Depths' contains my second best guitar moment ever, it's their best song in my opinion (and that includes the album). I could listen to the last 30 seconds of that song forever.

Buy even if you own "Silent Alarm".... 17 Dec. 2005
By Pop Culture Master - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I bought Silent Alarm many months ago, and it's definitely one of the best of 2005. "Helicopter", a really great, edgy pop song, is on the album, but "Always New Depths" is not. "Always New Depths" is the song that first introduced me to Bloc Party when I heard it on a commercial. It's a truly fantastic song lyrically and instrumentally, perhaps my favorite Bloc Party song. So even if you own Silent Alarm, it is definitely worth it to buy this for "Always New Depths".
