Starting with the title, Bloc Party's Kele Okereke adopts a confrontational stance on his solo debut. With the departure of his band, he's tossed aside wiry dance-rock in favor of up-tempo dance beats, overdriven synths and baroque vocal processing. Hiding their own hands, Hudson Mohawke and XXXChange leave it to Kele to shape tracks inspired by NIN, early Depeche Mode and '00s Euro-dance. The quavering vocals and hyperactive mix suggest an emotional excess, a breathless musical exorcism, but "Unholy Thoughts" and "The Things I Could Never Say" are all the more effective for their restraint.
