One piece of good news I’ve heard this week was that Franz Ferdinand released a new album yesterday. According to the reviews on-line, this album is as brilliant as the first one, which I thought was a masterpiece.
On their debut album every song is a hit. I have been listening to it non-stop for the past month. I downloaded the whole album to my Ipod just to make sure Franz’ tunes accompany me wherever I go. Singing along with songs like Take me out, Darts of pleasure, Auf Acshe and Matinee is becoming one of my favorite past times nowadays.
For those not familiar with this Scottish band, all I can say is that if you like British pop, then you will tremendously enjoy Franz’ style. Their music has elements of both 80’s music and contemporary pop. They also remind me of The Strokes, a band that tops my list of favorites. If you enjoy British pop and have some money to spare, then go get these two albums now! Yes, this is an order. They are worth every penny!
Just like to say hello from the beautifully musical isle of Eire (Ireland)and to welcome you, your Jeff and your friends to my website (Rivers2c) and blog (Sea2mist)whenever you have some time.
LOL..too late… you missed your chance;-) I will make sure to put my hands on the new album soon.
Quick followup, “Do You Want To” is the single getting all the attention, but my personal fav is “Outsiders.”
If you weren’t married, I’d propose just for this post!
I’m a Franz-aholic.
Bought the Album on iTunes last night at midnight, moment of release.
