14: Bloc Party – Virtue

We’re little over two weeks away from Bloc Party 2.0’s debut record Hymns thanks to the, shall we say, hiatus-laden period of regeneration the quartet has gone through in the past few years. After the dancey ‘The Love Within‘ and blues rock of ‘The Good News’, ‘Virtue’ opens with a blend of the two before launching into something more typical. Intimacy is probably the closest analogy, as it picks up bits of ‘Talons’ and ‘Better Than Heaven’ as those same religious tones and organ-like distorted guitar from the LP’s previous snippets return. Though it doesn’t captivate as quickly as singles one and two, there’s certainly plenty to remain excited about.
