SINCE the wilds of time before Silent Alarm, I have been a massive advocate of Bloc Party's.
I remember waiting impatiently for the group's debut to be released, and again when follow-up A Weekend In The City was released.
However this cheeky new LP snuck up unexpectedly - but what a nice surprise.
As we've come to expect from Bloc Party by now, Intimacy is engaging and cerebral musically, but still kicks out the jams in all the right places despite a greater reliance on computers than before.
Straddling a fine line between their indie roots and their electronic tendancies, Intimacy is both a breath of fresh air and comfortingly familiar - if you're not yet intimate with Bloc Party, it's time to pucker up.
