I appreciated it

Though the Clash were never what you could call an "Art School quartet".

So how's the album? I still have only heard 'Take Me Out'. I didnt like it at first, but I've warmed up to it lately.

What other songs should I check out?

My review... don't give star ratings :D

Franz Ferdinand
Sony

The pre-release buzz from this Scottish (skittish?) Art school quartet blew like a mighty wind through the music press at the dawn of 2004. It was a canny decision to say the least to release the album at that time, since the utter lack of any other new bands to write about gave Franz the lions share of attention for several months. After a bit of a delay the album was released in Australia and, helped by plenty of radio and shop front play for undeniably infectious lead single Take Me Out, it debuted in the top 15 on the charts. The question though is whether it was worth all the fuss. The best and most obvious thing about Franz Ferdinand is probably what most excited the critics. Namely it takes the angular guitar play, danceable beats and hipster appeal of the Strokes and pushes it all a little bit further, adding a few more post-punk touches along the way. The tempo changes, homo-eroticism and faux German lyrics that creep in from time to time only add to the veneer of Arty new new wave coolness. The songs themselves dont always live up to the billing, but at least half the time (The Dark Of The Matinee, Auf Achse, Jacqueline, Darts Of Pleasure) they do, which is more than acceptable providing Franz Ferdinand continues to develop. Of course if the group simply hones its current sound the hype will move on to someone else, as the Strokes themselves discovered last year.

I take it you are enjoying them with the proverbial salt pinch, then?

Thanks for the review, brettig. I like "Take Me Out." I'm definitely going to get better acquainted with the other songs everyone recommended.

And comparing them to The Shins? Mofo is gonna be intrigued, to say the least.
