I once did a Years Best-Poll on my Blog and in a review of Bloc Partys achievements of 2007 stated something like "the non-album single Flux manages to reconcile me with Bloc Party after the overproduced bore that was A Weekend in the City".

What was I thinking...? Well, I was definitely right about the A Weekend in the City-part - this album is just not good. But Flux? This song is horrible! It's like some mediocre Indieband, looking for some "new influences", heard electronic music for the first time and decided to ruin their career even more. This is, at the very best, stuff for one of those "Deluxe Edition"-albums, where they put all the junk that is somehow related to the albums release on a bonus disc and sells it to you for triple the price of the original album. And it's just after the 2008 release of Intimacy and their subsequent downfall that we know this was no slip-up.

I mean, I respect artists that are trying to develop their style and, to a certain degree, I even demand it, but Bloc Party...they are basically a talented and nice bunch. And Silent Alarm was a good debut, though not as amazing as they want you to believe. But what have they done with their potential? Who seriously wants to listen to a mix of sappy and unbearable ballads and some ProTools-gone-wrong experiments with mediocre post punk tunes. Come can do better! And this single? You better forget about it.
