First Listen: Octopus by Bloc Party

I always felt slightly guilty criticising Bloc Party to their fans’ faces. Not because music taste is obviously subjective (I don’t really care) but because they seemed like they might possess a real quality. Now this post should cater for everyone because if you like Bloc Party, you’re sweet. If you don’t like Bloc Party, you’re in the same situation that I was in this morning. Then they dropped this smooth groove called Octopus, rendering my criticism dead and provoking a subsequent positive experience of their back catalogue.
