Bloc Party – Silent Alarm


14 february 2005. The countdown is started. The bomb is primed to explode it would be said if that weren’t so much in contrast with the fact that the Bloc Party’s webpage opens with a statement by Bertrand Russell: "Collective fear stimulates herd instinct, and tends to produce ferocity toward those who are not regarded as members of the herd".
This statement makes me happy. It lets me talk about Bloc Party without any fear to be laughed at, for moving against the mainstream.
Awaited since so long, at early listening “Silent alarm” doesn’t disappoint the expectations.
In evidence above all the rythmic section: brit-pop drumming is throbbing and takes the breath away since the first attack, “Like eating glass”, a potential new hit-single. All songs are jagged by powerful guitars and bass lines and the handrix-shaped singer dares rappers on their own field with never banal lyrics (see “Helicopter” with rhymes against G.W.Bush and American Government foreign politics).
You can pre-listen 4 tracks from “Silent alarm” @ Wichita/V2 webpage and you can pre-order it here.
Already known, says the herd. Probably yes, but …
today I felt “light” after the “heaviness” of Christmas time.
today I’ve gone around searching for a new home and a new bed to share with an older friend.
today I felt like I was a bit younger.
today Bloc Party has been the soundtrack of my day.

P.S. For those who prefer offline listening, just for few days:
