Tonight: Franz Ferdinand

The marquee of a theatre before a show.

It’s music of the night: to fling yourself around your room to as you psyche yourself for an evening of hedonism, for the dance-floor, flirtation, for your desolate heart-stop, for losing it and loving losing it, for the chemical surge in your bloodstream. It’s for that lonely hour gently rocking yourself, ... Read more in Amazon's Franz Ferdinand Store

5.0 out of 5 stars Another great album from the Archdukes! 28 Aug 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I've read a few reviews of this album in the papers and pretty much every reviewer hated "Tonight". their previous album. I really liked it. I liked all their previous albums. What I find refreshing about Franz Ferdinand is their ability to tweak their style slightly each time they produce a record, yet still have it remain very much "their" sound. They have done the same again with "Right Thoughts, Right Words, Right Action".

The album opens with a belter - "Right Action" is a classic Franz Ferdinand track; lovely guitar rythmn, great hook and a anthemic chorus. Other typical songs include "Brief Encounters", which talks about the seedy side of life the band like to explore and "Fresh Strawberries" which is proper bonkers! I'd say the style is more in-keeping with their debut album, "Franz Ferdinand", but brings in different elements as their style has evolved. It isn't really like "Tonight", so if you did hate that album, then give this one a go. It's short, but that's OK, I'd rather pay for quality than quantity.

The live album is pretty stonking on CD 2 as well.

So, in conclusion, some would describe this as a 'return to form'. I say the form never left, and it's another cracker from one of my favourite modern bands.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Masterpiece 30 Aug 2013
By Niall M
Format:Audio CD
I purchased this album on the day of release and after having listened to it for what must have been 20 times; I believe this album is a real masterpiece.
Franz Ferdinand released their first album in 2004 and I really liked it, I liked the follow up in 2005 even better. Their third album released in 2009 was very good, it was different to the first two and got a few negative reviews but I didn't think it was bad - just different.
Right Thoughts, Right Words, Right Action is their fourth studio album. They have been working on this since early 2010 when they announced they were working on it and it really shows. Every song has individuality, catchy beats, fantastic lyrics and will remind you very much of their first two albums but with a twist.

There is a Beatlesesque feel to a number of tracks where harmonies play a big big part and helps create something new sounding whilst sounding a lot like Franz at the same time.

Track Listing:
1- Right Action - Their first single of the album is also the first track, its catchy, its fun, it has simple lyrics and a great beat. I'm happy it's the first track because to be honest it is probably one of my least favourite songs on the album! They almost get this one out of the way by putting it first! When this was released early on Youtube via their page I was excited for the album, little did I know the remainder would be even better.

2- Evil Eye - Starts with a simple drum tap similar to Queen but becomes something very different, a song about the "Evil Eye" which is a bad omen. Some excellent use of harmonies in this one including the amazing lyric "What's the colour of the next car, Yeah Red ya Bastard".

3 - Love Illumination - Sublime!

4.0 out of 5 stars Return to form 5 Jan 2014
Format:MP3 Download|Verified Purchase
Franz Ferdinand were a band I'd pretty much given up on after the first album but this is the best thing they've done since (and maybe including) then. Simple stuff - great tunes, decent lyrics. If you'd written them off then think again!

5.0 out of 5 stars "Fresh burst of red strawberries" 26 Aug 2013
By Adam Finn TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
'Right Thoughts, Right Words, Right Action' is the fourth studio album from Glaswegian art-rockers Franz Ferdinand

Formed in 2002, Franz Ferdinand were a runaway success. NME-injected Zeitgeist propelled the band to unimaginable heights and within a matter of three years had amassed Brit awards, platinum selling albums and the coveted Mercury Music Prize. Their self titled début and equally lucrative You Could Have It So Much Better were sharply defined and artistically hip. In comparison, their third album Tonight was a discouraging mis-fire destined for Room 101.

What makes this new record such a surprise is that ten years on from their breakthrough success, Kapranos et al. have produced a short but sweet return to their original sound but in a way that sounds so fresh and alive. To keep up with the times the band have recruited Hot Chip and Björn Yttling of Peter Björn & John to take some of the controls. Nevertheless, its the elements of their original sounds (namely killer hooks and a stomping in-vogue swagger) that holds this album together.

Opener 'Right Action' is a thumping return and there isn't one forgettable track on the record. Despite this it isn't until the nostalgic 'Fresh Strawberries' and beyond where the album really does become stand-out. Still possessing their youthful zest and energy ('Bullet'), Franz Ferdinand have recaptured a spirit still capable of variety and intrigue, manifested in the sinister, dark and brooding 'Treason!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent 26 Aug 2013
Format:Audio CD
A brilliant, intelligent and above all fun return by Franz Ferdinand. Full of the infectious riffs and witty lyrics that we've come to expect from them but there is a freshness and vigour to this record that was lacking on their previous album Tonight. I can't really pick one favourite track as they all stood out on first listen which IMO is the mark of a great album.
