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

.....But not an entirely unpleasant on. It does take some getting used to though. The first two albums were very guitar based and this leans heavily to a more electropop direction, so it seems very weird at first. 'No you girls' 'What She Came For' and 'Live Alone' is a very catchy typically Franz rock/pop song in the vein of 'Do you want to' but the other tracks so elements of Orange Juice/Lyndsey wells/8O's synth/90's break beats. The tempo of the songs often change at the beginning and mid stream e.g. 'Bite Hard, What She Came Fo" which makes all the more exciting and creative. 'Katherine Kiss Me', the last track is slow and acoustic and seems abit of an odd choice to end on. If you are sole fan of guitar based music - stay way. But if you like twists and turns and fancy something varied I heartily recommend it.

This album has had mixed reviews in the press, but don't be put off. This is a quality set of songs, some of which ("No You Girls, "Bite Hard", "What She Came For") stand out as instantly catchy candidates for singles, but the more I listen to the album, the harder I find it to decide which song I like best. They are all so good in their own way. At the moment, "Live Alone" is my favourite. It's insanely danceable and the lyrics show a rejection of true commitment in favour of the excitement and thrill of love. The comfortable and routine is not for Alex Kapranos! As with previous Franz albums,the lyrics, melodies and hooks are still there. It takes a few listens before they are fully revealed, but the album is all the better for it. Although the songs stand well along, to do them full justice, I think this is best listened to as an album, as it truly is a journey through preparing for, enjoying and recovering from a great night out. Buy the album and make up your own mind.

This is so worth the wait. If you're holding your breathe wondering why it's taken a while relax. Tonight is as fresh and immediate as their debut but darker, tighter, and way more psychedelic. The LP opens with current single Ulysses, setting an insistent and edgy pace. Turn It On, Live Alone, and Bite Hard all feel like they're wearing sunglassses after dark the night after the night before. Lucid Dreams is twisted and trippy, it's followed by Dream Again an even further out twist. For the whole of Tonight, they're once again the hippest band in the UK, way out there on their own. Finishing with Katherine Kiss Me, one of their most instant head to feet to party numbers. Whoever Katherine is - Tell Her Tonight!

So, I'll nail my colours to the mast and admit that I loved the first FF album; liked the second a lot, and am definitely impressed by the third after several listens. A lot has been said here about the album's style and content so I'll stick to writing a review that should be helpful to prospective buyers.

Like Bloc Party (yes I like them too `Hornpipe'!) FF have bravely attempted to avoid merely treading water and started to push their own boundaries a little. I agree with the previous reviewer who said that the burgeoning electronic aspect has resulted in the band's trademark edgy guitars being dumbed down; however they are at least trying to be fresh - bringing in influences from the likes of Human League, Gary Numan and Pet Shop Boys is fine - as long as it's not overdone. I thought that the second track on the album was the most like FF of old; Ulysses is a cool name for a cool track; at least they're embracing our rich cultural history rather than simply recycling old names!

The dub-style bonus CD reworks the songs rather than simply extending them and is a real nod to faithful fans. Lie down, turn out the lights, stick some decent headphones on and crank up the volume on this one.

Recognisable but fresh; spirited but thoughtful; I would recommend this as both a good way in for those who are unfamiliar with FF, and a treat for those who have followed the band over the past seven years.

I absolutely love Franz Ferdinand's self titled debut, so even before listening to this album I guess I would be biased into enjoying it. The first 3 tracks are very enjoyable, moreso with "Turn It On" and "No You Girls" being more of the traditional FF sound which I'm used to hearing. However, it is obvious they are experimenting with keyboard synth sounds, as can be heard on "Ulysses", "Twilight Omens", and "Live Alone". The songs do work, and are very danceable and catchy, with that trademark simple picky bass line. Some of these songs still incorparate the rocky elements of FF, but others are of a completely style, particularly "Can't Stop Feeling". It seems that these types of song contrast each other a little too much, if you stripped away the vocal you may think that this album was recorded by two different bands. The final two songs are different once again to the rest of the album. The bass seems to be more inventive than usual, standing out on "Send Him Away".

I rate this album a 4 because FF have done a decent effort of maintaining elements of their reputed sound, whilst still experimenting with new layers and sounds over the top. Some songs are very memorable and catchy - but be warned, if you don't like bands that experiment with their sound, this may not be for you.
