Alarming!

This album was an unexpected hit of 2005 for me. I followed the band loosely for a couple of years before their debut release, watching them release Banquet several times and making appearances way down on the billing list at Reading Festival. It was clear that they enjoyed a live performance and were capable of synthesising a catchy tune, so I snapped up Silent Alarm on the day it came out.

Description: B B Styled more along the lines of a revolutionary cell than a band, Bloc Party approach the medium of rock'n'roll with the sort of high seriousness usually reserved for philosophy lectures.

“This album was an unexpected hit of 2005 for me.
