Default A Weekend in the CIty: Bloc Party

Does anyone else have this CD?

It is amazing!

I think this group are the best songwriters at the moment.

The lyrics for Kreuzberg, On, I still remember and The Prayer are amazing.

Best album of the young year so far..Easy.

They are indie rock.... 4 guys from London i believe.

You probably would have heard Helicopter or Banquet from their first album.

The new album is different but just as good.

There is a song called "On" that describes cocaine use in young people from an interesting perspective...which in my opinion (Someone who has never taken the drug) is spot on.

A song called "the prayer" which for me, describes the social disposition of every young adult i've ever met.

And a song called "Kreuzberg" which describes how the novelty of casual sex eventually wears out.

The song called SXRT is the saddest i've ever heard...About college graduates who want to kill themselves, they come out of school and still can't find a purpose in life.

I don't know why but the lyrics from Bloc partys music stand out to me like no other band I'v heard.

Check out these lyrics for a song called uniform about the lack of diversity in culture in todays youth....SPOT ON!

Quote:
There was a sense of disappointment as we left the mall
All the young people looked the same
Wearing their masks of ‘cool’ and ‘indifference’
Commerce dressed up as rebellion*

'Cause we're so handsome and we're so bored
So entertain us, tell me a joke
Make it long, make it last
Make it cruel, just make me laugh
We can't be heard*, we can't be heard

Drink to forget your blues on the weekend
Think about more things to buy
The TV taught me how to sulk and love nothing
and how to grow my hair long

'Cause we're so handsome and we're so bored
So entertain us, tell me a joke
Make it long, make it last
Make it cruel, just make me laugh
We can't be heard*, we can't be heard

So why'd you go picking fights that you'll lose?
(When you have entertainment, when you have things to pass the time)
So why do you go thinking thoughts that are above you?
(You can be happy just playing dumb
(You can be happy just playing dumb)
Well I was brave, and unique, intelligent, a snowflake;
I could have been a hero
No-one can be trusted over the age of fourteen
(Tattoo our arms)
(Converse shoes)
(Cynical)
(?)
We tell ourselves we’re different
I've gotten so good at lying to myself

Oh!
All my pain and honour is used up
Oh! Oh! Oh!
All my guns are rusted

So when're you gonna realise
Those are not your wrongs to right?
Have another line**, have another drink

I am a martyr, I just need a motive
I am a martyr, I just need a cause
I'm a believer, I just need a moment
I'm a believer, I just need a cause

We're finding it hard to break the mould
We're finding it hard to be alone
We're finding it hard to (?) ourselves
We have nothing at all to say

Uniform (x3)

There was a sense of disappointment as we left the mall
All the young people looked the same
