Quite a brave record in the overall sceme of things. They sound if they are trying to do something slightly different, as opposed to going through the motions. But however hard Bloc Party try, they still sound like 1981. It is just in their system and they may always sound like they are just stuck in that era for the rest of their career. This track sounds very much like 'Concorde Square' by Crispy Ambulance [minus the seven minutes of feedback], which, you've guessed it. was recorded in 1981...
So if you want innovation, forget it. But if you are not so fussy and like music that is stylistically 25 years out of date, that you can do a whole lot worse than this. At least the boys are making an effort - and there isn't many bands around at the moment who are.
