A rock band called “Bloc Party” with a CD titled “Four” has already received several reviews. Most are positive but some are negative. The positive ones comment on the distinctly sounding melodies and riffs while other people would say that the band has nothing special. In reality, the specificity and the unique sound that the band produces can be seen as a somewhat new direction and a great variation to everything that was created before (Four [Deluxe Edition] 2013).
The style is a mixture of old and modern rock where the band does not try to copy some sort of style but has their own. Some places can be closer to the heart of classical rock listeners and other parts are more dense and modern. The interchange between upbeats, pauses and the increasing, as well as slowing down tempo create a perspective that can be noticed throughout.
The drumming can be said to be one of key features of the band’s style because it gives the songs a new and more aggressive sounding, connecting with a larger audience of fast pace and variant drumming. It also caters to the public that is focused on leaving a “reckless” life and wants to jam to the beats. Some critics might say that there is too much effort to make the sounding different but it is just enough to provide a refreshing sound that is original from the songs written previously.
Just as any band, there are songs that are superb and become instant hits, and there are those that require a person to listen in closely and find something in the song that resonates with the deeper thoughts and emotions. In the end, it would be impossible to make sure that everyone likes the band equally or at all, as there is no arguing tastes and preferences.
