Bloc Party is currently writing new material after a two-year hiatus, and for music fans around the globe, that can only be considered a good thing. The bands manages to combine great lyrics with guitar riffs that cut incredibly deep in a way that most bands can only aspire to.

"A Weekend in the City" is the band's second studio album, a follow-up to the tremendous "Silent Alarm". The album opens up quite well with "Song for Clay", which gets going slowly but ends up with a great guitar riffs. The tone immediately gets set, and the rest of the album continues to enroll in the same stride. The songs lean quite heavily on the strengthened vocals with multiple vocals to accompany the heavier guitar riff segments, but it ends up working really well, both on a disc and live.

My personal highlights are "Song for Clay", "Hunting for Witches", "The Prayer" and "Flux". Each of these tricks feature an excellent bass line that matches up to the vocals perfectly. However, each song on the album is worth listening to on its own merits.

Bloc Party has surpassed its debut album with "A Weekend in the City", which is quite a feat considering how good that first album was. If the likes of "Banquet", "Helicopter" or "Silent Alarm" were to your liking, you'll find more such greatness here. Definitely worth a purchase.
