“…”Silent Alarm” is simply amazing. Anybody who enjoys well crafted lyrics and song structure will find a new home here and not be disappointed…” Gavin Bard, InsidePulse Music
“…thrilling…What separates Bloc Party from too many other postpunk revivalists is that their music holds a spirit of urgency that’s matched by a gift for scrambling their sources. The band conjures frenzy with neat strategies that keep unleashing surprises: steady drumbeats that sporadically burst into a gallop and guitar parts that juggle blunt chords, glassy high notes, fierce scrabbling tremolos and sudden jabs. And just when the music threatens to become pure propulsion, a melody line appears.” The New York Times
“…manic bliss on nearly every track of their superb long-playing debut…Pointed pop tunes yelp and cry and tug at your heart even as the band’s rhythmic friction spews sparks at your feet.” Rolling Stone
“The best post-punk stems from the construction of a perfectly balanced machine, where manic energy, peristaltic rhythm, crisp shifts in intensity and tempo, and heartfelt sloganeering achieve a thrumming equilibrium. Bloc Party just nail these precarious dynamics…” Pitchfork
