Silent Alarm is the debut full length from UK indie rock band Bloc Party, released on 2 February 2005 in Japan and 14 February 2005 worldwide. It spawned four singles: So Here We Are, Banquet, Pioneers and Helicopter.

Silent Alarm is also more varied than Bloc Party's early work indicated it might be, spanning edgy pop, atmospheric ballads, and angular, percussive tracks that are all served well by the album's big, layered production. The great single "Banquet" and even better opening track, "Like Eating Glass," put Bloc Party's heart-on-sleeve emotions in the service of tight, energetic songwriting that makes their earnestness a little easier to swallow

Silent Alarm was released in 2005 to widespread critical and commercial success, achieving multi-platinum sales and earning Bloc Party a Mercury Prize nomination.

Silent Alarm rockets right out of the gate: Its first four tracks, undeniable highlights all, are driven by a taut, propulsive rhythm section. A duo of chiming guitars intertwines, and Kele Okereke's yelps build the tension, which eventually explodes on syncopated dance punk anthem "Banquet. The band then slowly unwinds with "Blue Light" and "This Modern Love," the kind of big, dramatic ballads that have the power to make you dance while you cry. Silent Alarm Bloc Party.
