You Could Have It So Much Better
Franz Ferdinand's sophmore album is solid. Their brand of punky/garagey/pop rock managed to gain more success than their debut, but the first single, Do You Want To, didn't catch their self titled debut single, Take Me Out.
As is often the case when an alternative band hits the mainstream the single is probably the worst song on this album. The Fallen, Evil and A Heathen and Your the Reason I'm Leaving are much more interesting. And of course you can't discount the dance track on the album -- Outsiders. I'm not sure I can put the three Franz Ferdinand albums on a heirarchy, as they all have different moments of greatness, but this album may just slightly lose out to the other two. At least in this moment that I am writing this review.
