    Four is everything Bloc Party's post-hiatus record should be. When the band split in 2009, the world was still in love with Intimacy and in no way prepared for a sudden drop-off in Bloc Party records. There was no way of knowing what Bloc Party's next release would be like, especially after a two year break. In that amount of time Bloc Party could have cultivated an entirely different sound; they could have discovered alternative country and we wouldn't know until the release. Instead Bloc Party wrote a new album as the old band. Four follows a previous formula, sounding more like A Weekend in the City or Silent Alarm. They channel a more original sound without seeming repetitious. Four has all the elements it should and reminds us why we love Bloc Party in the first place.
