This IS so much better,
This review is from: You Could Have It So Much Better (Audio CD)
The debut Franz Ferdinand album was okay. Lots of samey material, with a couple of standout tracks to keep the listener happy. The whole thing was let down by some pretty lo-fi audio engineering as well (sounds thrashy on my Arcam/Quad set-up).
This new album is varied, well produced, well engineered and represents a blooming of the potential suggested by te debut album. This has been a stunning period for new albums (McCartney, Stones, Neil Young, Simple Minds, Super Furry Animals) and this new offering from the slightly eccentric art rockers is no let down. Very enjoyable.
