Intimacy (Bloc Party album)

Intimacy (Bloc Party album).
Intimacy is the third studio album by British indie rock band Bloc Party (pictured). It was recorded in London and Kent during 2008 and was produced by Jacknife Lee and Paul Epworth. The album became available for purchase on the band's website as a digital download on 21 August 2008. The record was released in compact disc form in October 2008, with Wichita Recordings as the primary label. It peaked at number 8 on the UK Albums Chart and entered the Billboard 200 in the United States at number 18. The album incorporates electronic elements and unconventional musical arrangements. As the record's title suggests, its tracks are about personal relationships, and are loosely based on one of frontman Kele Okereke's breakups in 2007. Three songs were released as singles: "Mercury", "Talons", and "One Month Off"; the first two tracks entered the UK Top 40. Intimacy was generally well received by critics. Reviewers focused on its rushed release and central theme, considering them either bold steps or poor choices.
