Music Videos: Crazy-Ass New Bloc Party Vid

Oh, Bloc Party. Why can't you ever live up to "Silent Alarm"'s greatness? They've been shockingly uneven ever since they were done with their first album, and the trend continues with their new song, "Mercury". The song is loaded with good ideas, and its devotion to being different is impressive, but in the end, the actual studio version sounds like a shitty remix of a potentially good song. Hopefully it gets workshopped before showing up on an album.

But that's just me. The song, and the video, have been extremely polarizing, so you're just going to have to judge for yourself.
