"Silent Alarm" is my favourite album of all time. Honestly, if the Hall of Fame were to make an exception about time, it should be this band. They are what modern rock is all about.

Too early to tell right with a lot of these bands.

They're paving the way for a strong back-catalogue, say what you want about "A Weekend In The City" but in terms of innovation, it seperated Bloc Party from the norm 'indie art' bands, and while not perfect, it still shows great promise for their future.

The difference in lyrical styles between the two albums was the most impressive thing I found. You usually tend to stick to one way of writing. Kele managed to change completely

I don't know - they seem to be following this "electronic" approach, which makes me wonder where Bloc Party will be 2030. That said, out of all the mainstream UK acts at the moment, they seem most likely to write the OK Computer of the naughties (if there is one).

Silent Alarm was very promising album. However i'm not a fan of their electronic stuff. If they could replicate their earlier stuff then perhaps they could be deserving of a place.

I don't want them churning the same post-punk revival stuff for too long. They could get away with it for another two albums at most. Flux was OK, but it was really formulaic and just sounded like "Hey we're Bloc Pary and we like New Order, especially Blue Monday!".

I absolutley love their first album. In the same breath, I haven't been able to listen to anything they've made since.

Saw this act at The Hangout. Seemed to stay away from their 'electronic' stuff. Looked like a conventional band to me.

Enthusiastic crowd. I listened for awhile & then moved over to get a spot for Stevie Wonder.

Basist has a handlbar mustache like the bassist for Umphrey's McGee.
