At the first listen, I was very disappointed about this album. 3 years and a few more listens later, I really appreciate this album as it have some similarities with Silent Alarm (2005) and A weekend in the city (2007).

Favorite tracks: Real Talk, Kettling, Truth

Les favorite tracks: 3x3, Octopus, The Healing

An heavier album that shows a different side of what Bloc Party can deliver as a group... and still offers slower stuff that match the earlier productions. Really enjoyed it!

After the drum loops and dance beats of Intimacy, Four gets back to basics, and the sounds of voices in the studio interspersed with the tracks give this album the feel of four guys re-energised with the enjoyment of making music. There's no grand plan here, but a diverse collection of sounds from howling rock riffing (Kettling) to fragile whispered beauty (Day Four) and everything else in between. A great way to return.

Surprising in a good way. You may expect a calm album considering the sober jacket or the albums they did before, but it is definitely not. In this album, Bloc Party even use heavy sounds remebering Living Colour or Queens of the Stone Age. Their best album since Silent Alarm.

All over the place, going from heavy rock to alt rock. Real Talk and Truth are my favourite songs on the album.

Don't think they'll ever be able to match the brilliance of 'Silent Alarm' but this is a pretty solid album.
