FILTER Grade: 80%

From the crunching chords of “So He Begins to Lie” through “We’re Not Good People,” there’s one, loud, indisputable message: Bloc Party is back. Four years on the sidelines seems to have re-energized the lads—their sound is as frenetic as when they left us. The appropriate blend of electronica and heavy, lo-fi, guitar-driven rock provides singer Kele Okereke the platform to take his voice to new and exciting places. With nary a dull moment on the aptly titled album, it’s a thrill to have them again.
