Biography

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

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.

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!

SPOILER WARNING!

From the beginning to the end the music on the album is full of various melodies and harmonies which can be memorised. For those who like to sing - yes, the melodies can be sung.
I'm not sure if this was the case with other listeners, however, when listening to the material on this disc, I found that my feet were tapping whilst a nice, refreshingly sharp positive feeling found its way into my mind.
To me, it's a sign of Franz Ferdinand's magic. Like a good malt's dram - an experience hard to explain in words, yet most uniquely precious.

Lyrically, this album relates to many bold dilemmas in one's life:
- deliberating over qualified invitations found on an old postcard (Right Thoughts)
- trying to guess the colour of the next passing car whilst sitting in a cafe (Evil Eye)
- looking for dark love kicks in Blackpool (Love Illumination)
- proudly uniting with the cold North Sea in a manly bond (Stand on the Horizon)
- looking for comfort in something beyond temporary material beauty (Fresh Strawberries)
- desperately trying to shake off dangerously obsessive wants (Bullet)
- reflecting on the unnatural state of the natural world (Treason! Animals)
- healing old wounds while finally the Earth switches to the 'rewind' mode (The Universe Expanded)
- finding empty freedom in boring suburban hedonism (Brief Encounters)
- never mixing sacrum and profanum when experiencing the definiteness of life (Goodbye Lovers and Friends)

This and much more.

An excellent album! What really makes this a five star offering is the live set with imaginative re-workings of classic tracks alongside new songs. They showcase what a tight outfit Franz Ferdinand are and, if you have not seen them live, you have to catch them.
