Bloc Party's second album, A Weekend in the City, is out now, and I'm digging it as well. It draws on a broader range of influences. Here are the opening lines to "Uniform," one of my favorite tracks on the new album.
There was a sense of disappointment as we left the mallThe full lyrics to this and other Bloc Party songs are available here.
All the young people looked the same
Wearing their masks of cool and disinterest
Commerce dressed up as rebellion
Because we are so handsome and we are so bored
So entertain us, tell me a joke
Make it long, make it last forever
Make it cruel just make me laugh
We can't be hurt
UPDATE: As initially posted, I called the new album by the name of the new single, "I Still Remember." It's now been corrected.
