Bloc Party: Intimacy
Luke Turner, The Quietus, 20 August 2008
BLOC PARTY have always made themselves a frustratingly difficult band to like. Alright, so if you're a 17 year old kid from Haywards Heath with a persecution complex and enough Camus in your blazer pocket to sneer at the emo kids, then their two albums of spiky guitars and developing punk/funk have no doubt been shining beacons of enlightenment amidst a hard and indifferent world, etc. etc. and so on amen.
