10 Songs, 10 Days: The Pioneers – Bloc Party

by johndsykes86

“We promised the world we’d tame it, what were we hoping” 

If a line could be a mantra for my life, that would probably be it. Wanting to be a world-beater and being beat down by reality but still wanting to aspire to something despite of all the reasons why it wont or cant happen. Music in general is my religion, but Bloc Party’s Silent Alarm is just one of those albums that I find the need to revisit, like Mecca. From the opening riffs to the repeated lines “We will not be the last”, just a song that’ll be imprinted on my heart for a long while.
