Well it’s about time we hear some new Bloc Party. I was obsessed with their first album. Their second album was just ok in my book, but had some great moments. Hearing about a new Bloc Party album kind of scares me. I can only hope that it is more like the first album than the second. Knowing them it will be completely different from both, which might not be such a bad thing.
Those wonderful Bloc Party members have given us a little taste of the new album, entitled Intimacy. Take a look at the video for “Mercury”, a song that will most definitaly be on the album:
I’m definitely not crazy about it just yet. Hopefully its a grower.
On the band’s myspace page you can hear another song on the album, called Trojan Horse. This one is a little more like what we’re used to.
Anyways, I’m just nervous because I love Bloc Party and hope the new album is amazing, so I can listen to it over and over and over again.
By the way, the album is being released digitally on Thursday, August 21st. That’s this Thursday in case you didn’t know. So if you can’t wait until the October 27 release date, go get your download on!
