I bought this CD single for my Franz obsessed best friend, Sarah. Neither of us can wait for their next album, as we thought that their self titled debut album was great. "Michael" is the 4th song released by the Scottish rockers.
The "Michael" single comes with two fantastic bonus tracks that aren't on the album, "Love and Destroy" and "Missing You", giving us just a taste of the type of things that could be on their new album. I'm not such a big fan on "Love and Destroy", but Alex Kapranos (lead singer of Franz Ferdinand) sings beautifully in the third track on the single, "Missing You". A must for all Franz fans!

Why do you find homosexual related lyrics disturbing? How small-minded are you? Anyway, Franz aren't exactly known for their profound and meaningful lyrics, it's all about the tune. And this has a great tune. Buy it, download it, see a Franz gig, or better, buy the album and get all the lovely Franz Ferdinand you need.

Another great cd from Franz Ferdinand with a very catchy tune. Something could be said for the slightly disturbing lyrics!

HASH(0x929cd924) out of 5 stars There are no throw aways 18 Jan. 2005
By L. Umayam - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Most people who might be interested in this single probably have the Franz Ferdinand album. But this single is a must for "Love and Destroy" and "Missing". It's a shame "Love and Destroy" did not make the album because this is the first Franz Ferdinand song I heard and got me hooked on them. It has a distinct 80's sound and great guitar riff that reminds me of early "New Order". This is probably my favorite song by them. "Missing You" is another strong track that could have easily made the album also. Don't be fooled that these are B-sides, with Franz Ferdinand it seems there are no throw away tracks.

HASH(0x929cd8d0) out of 5 stars "Love And Destroy" could have been better 12 Mar. 2006
By Maxim - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
There is nothing I could say that is BAD about this CD. It's just I thought a thing or two could have been better. Here's what I have to say:

MICHAEL--This fast paced rock song is of very good quality. It's just that many would be given some wrong impressions about Alex Kapranos from listening to the lyrics of the song. But I'm not going to start describing why. The bottom line is that it's a good song. Featuring vocals by Alex Kapranos and Nick McCarthy.

LOVE AND DESTROY--I once heard a live version of this song, and it was EXCELLENT. I just wanted to listen to it over and over again. So, I expected the actual album version to be even better. But I was wrong. The album version isn't a bad song, it's just so slow and unamimated compared to the version that I once knew. Featuring vocals by Alex Kapranos and Nick McCarthy.

MISSING YOU--One song by Franz Ferdinand that does not feature piano that can be called a ballad. And it is quite beautiful. I'm glad that Franz Ferdinand discovered how to write a ballad and include electric guitar in it. Featuring vocals by Alex Kapranos.

So my final say is 4.5/5, .5 stars of just because I expected LOVE AND DESTROY to be so much better.

HASH(0x92b207e0) out of 5 stars What a weird sequel 7 Dec. 2013
By Mmmmm Amazon-y - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I loved Michael 1, so I thought I'd like the sequel. I'm really dissapointed because Michael 2 doesn't build on anything. It just repeats everything that made Michael 1 so good. I expect more from a sequel than just a higher number, so was kind of sad this didn't continue the story of Michael on the dance floor. I'd expect this from a Transformers movie, but shame on you Franz Ferdinand.
