Is Four the magic number after all?
on 30 August 2012
Sticking my neck out here I have to confess to really liking Bloc Party's 'electronic phase' showcased on third album Intimacy, but I also find their constant drive to produce different sounding albums extremely refreshing, and therefore it's great to hear some proper rocking (Kettling/Coliseum) and more conventional guitar-based pop (Day Four), alongside more recognisable BP tunes such as Real Talk and 3x3. As other reviewers have commented, this album is quite hard to pin down, even after several listens, but it certainly shows a band at ease with themselves; both lyrically and musically, and willing to forge a sound that may alienate some fans but will assuredly move them along creatively and win many more.
