5.0 out of 5 stars East London is a vampire 26 May 2009
Format:Audio CD
After breaking onto the scene with 2005's refreshing Dance/Rock crossover album `Silent Alarm', Kele Okereke and the band followed it up with this brave change in direction. The album is more lyrically astute than its predecessor, and to a certain extent it sacrifices some of the blistering guitar and drum led rhythms; however that is no bad thing, as Kele gets to stamp his own fierce identity on proceedings whilst railing against social injustice and the moral majority's loosening grip on our society in the noughties. The Rocky edge of Silent Alarm has partially given way to electronic sensibilities, and in songs such as `Hunting for Witches' and `Prayer', Kele's plaintive vocals lodge themselves in your head; the sparse synths and drum machines underpinning the lyrics and providing a haunting, hypnotic feel.
Although not as immediate and accessible as its predecessor; this CD potentially has more longevity, and should ensure that the spiky, earnest, and passionate Bloc Party are here to stay.
The album also contains bonus track `Flux'; released prior to the album it's a frantic electro/pop anthem that is also a bold statement of defiance and intent.
The DVD contains three music videos (detailed above) and a live performance at the Reading Festival. Good value for money and a superb follow-up album.

Format:Audio CD
way cool packaging, nice to have the vids in HiQu, and yep I agree w/ the other reviewer about the chapter issue... totally annoying !
1 question, also: where is the booklet (incl. the lyrics) ?? should there be a booklet included in this deluxe edition, cuz that would mean it's missing from mine :(
cheers,
god bless bloc party!

3.0 out of 5 stars What Happened With The Reading Performance DVD? 13 Mar 2008
By Mr Kif
Format:Audio CD
I'm a big fan of this band, and I bought this cd/dvd package really looking forward to seeing the DVD, with the full set from last year's Reading Festival. So I started watching it, pressed the display button on the remote to see how many chapters there were, and found out that the whole live set IS ALL ONE CHAPTER! Talk about a sloppy production job! It's obviously not the band's fault, their record label probably wouldn't spend the extra 2p it would have cost to put chapters in at the start of each song! This has completely ruined the dvd for me, I can't watch just some songs, or play them in my preferred order. I'm probably not going to watch it again. Shame on you, Wichita Records!
