Silent Alarm is a great album! We need more songs from that album in Rock Band! There are a few songs in the database already, but none of them, aside from the Guitar Hero convert, are truly complete. So here's the first fully-original ~completed~ Bloc Party release, which also happens to be the blistering first track on the album: Like Eating Glass! As has become the new normal for me, I've once again commissioned another charter to take up vocal duties. This time it was ***Septekka***. Really cool dude. Very professional work. I really hope to work with him again soon!
Now for the song, every instrument stays pretty interesting once the song gets going. The drums are definitely the highlight, with some fun but tricky little drum fills scattered throughout. Also the fairly consistent bass pedal might tire your leg out. Bass is also super varied. If there's a weak link, the guitar earns that title only by default. The verses can get a little repetitive, but everything else is pretty interesting. And how much fun you have on vocals is always determined by your love of the particular song, but I personally can't wait to belt out the opening lyrics at my next Rock Band party.
So yeah guitar, bass, drums, and rough vocals done by me. Polished vocals by Septekka! AND... custom venue done by Septekka! Yes, this is my first release to have a custom venue, so I'm excited about that! And, as if he hadn't already done enough, he's agreed to record a video preview to top it off. Expect that sometime within the next few days. Thanks again, Septekka! I really appreciate it!
NOTE: I have not tested this song on all instruments, let alone all difficulties. If you experience any problems, please contact me and I'll try and address them as quickly as possible.
