58. “Ion Squared” by Bloc Party (2008)

Bloc Party made two really excellent albums before getting too caught up in the block-rockin’-beats of their third release, Intimacy. Despite that fact, Intimacy did have a few songs that seemed to take their earlier sound and marry it with big beats and big volume and “Ion Squared” is the end result – Bloc Party’s signature sad rock married with fractured drumming, great Brit Pop melodies and Johnny Marr style lead guitars.
