5.0 out of 5 stars I've just remembered how great this album is..., 4 Nov 2004
By A Customer
This review is from: Franz Ferdinand (Audio CD)
Ok, I must admit I got swept up in all the hype when this first came out and bought the album after only hearing Take Me Out. I then played it utterly to death, saw them supporting someone, and had a crazy Franz-filled hysterical kind of start to this year. I then decided for my own sanity that I should put it away for a little while and try some of the other British music I knew had to be around somewhere.
I got it out again recently and was once again blown away by the album's energy and sheer nerve. There really isn't a bad song on here, unlike the Libertines' last good but patchy testimony to how long the security managed to keep Pete and Carl from strangling each other this time. Anyway, there's none of that nonsense here. Franz is just bloody good music to do a lot more than dance to, and I'm sure I'll dig this album out in years to come with suitably airbrushed teenage memories. I've no idea how they'll match this with the next album but even if they do nothing else they'll always be the band I loved when I was 16.
I recently saw them on tour...and all I can say is damn you, Alex Kapranos and your smartly dressed Glaswegian friends, I swear I used to fancy other people before you.
