One piece of good news I’ve heard this week was that Franz Ferdinand released a new album yesterday. According to the reviews on-line, this album is as brilliant as the first one, which I thought was a masterpiece.
On their debut album every song is a hit. I have been listening to it non-stop for the past month. I downloaded the whole album to my Ipod just to make sure Franz’ tunes accompany me wherever I go. Singing along with songs like Take me out, Darts of pleasure, Auf Acshe and Matinee is becoming one of my favorite past times nowadays.
For those not familiar with this Scottish band, all I can say is that if you like British pop, then you will tremendously enjoy Franz’ style. Their music has elements of both 80’s music and contemporary pop. They also remind me of The Strokes, a band that tops my list of favorites. If you enjoy British pop and have some money to spare, then go get these two albums now! Yes, this is an order. They are worth every penny!
