My mercurys in retrograde


#1

Fuck me Bloc Party got real bad real quick didn’t they?


#2

Four is great. No idea why, given everything either side.


#3

i never listened to Four cos the single sounded piss weak


#4

Four was pretty good but… I just heard mercury for the first time in years and decided they were the worst band ever


#5

Great may be overstating it a tad but for me it felt as good as the first album, which was never a solid gold classic but had some great tracks on.


#6

Four is worse than silent alarm because it came out after mercury and the instruments on that record once produced mercury and I cannot overlook that.


#7

Four is really good. Not Silent Alarm great, but definitely an album I go back to every now and again.


#8

##re: Four

I remember it being pretty decent, as it happens.


#9

Yes, I remember us agreeing on this on the old boards at the time.

In fact I’m going to put it on right now.


#10

I shall put it on tonight to get over mercury. Then listen to the new one to make it seem not so bad by association
