I've just listen to Bloc Party's new album, A Weekend In The City, its given me exactly the same feeling as the first one did. That feeling is described in one word, meh. I don't hate it, i can listen to it all the way through, but i just seem to drift off halfway through, usually finding something better to do or my mind just goes blank. I really don't know what it is about this London 4-piece that just doesn't interest me. It might be the inconsistency of their songs, i loved Helicopter, Little Thoughts, So Here We Are but the rest of Silent Alarm just bored me completely and the same has happened here. Hunting For Witches is a really good tune, catchy and uplifting, as is Waiting For The 7:18, and i like the way they're experimenting a bit with their sound but it still doesn't do much for me. I'm gonna try and give it a few more listens and see if it grows on me. I'll let you know when i've given it a really good listen (that means through headphones, while walking to uni)
What do you think about the new album? Let me know coz i heard some people raving about it but still i can't understand why. Here's a couple of tracks for your contemplation:
Bloc Party - Hunting For Witches
Bloc Party - Where Is Home?
and a golden oldie
Bloc Party - Little Thoughts
