Album No. 9: Bloc Party, "Intimacy"
After the glossy, crappy Weekend in the City, Bloc Party return with the focused intensity of Intimacy. The songs are tight, and some of them have a dancable beat. "Mercury" is the album's highlight, as Kele Okereke yelps as if the world around him was coming down in a furious rage. Great stuff from the Britrockers.
Key tracks: "Mercury", "Halo", "Signs"
