Here's a ranking of my "new" CDs from best to worst (and worst just means least good):

The Killers - Hot Fuss
The Arcade Fire - Funeral
Interpol - Antics
Keane - Hopes and Fears
Franz Ferdinand - Franz Ferdinand
Modest Mouse - Good News for People Who Love Bad News

Arcade Fire and Interpol are very damned close. Keane took a while, but it's definitely a grower. I'll be able to compare live acts here in the next few weeks/months as well since Interpol (tomorrow), Modest Mouse (next month) and The Killers (in May) are all coming to town.

By the way, thanks to all here for the musical discussions. It prompted to go out and get these great CDs.

Franz Ferdinand by a long way. This is a excellent band who will be around for a while!

Franz Ferdinand! The reason: they don't suck live, The Killers do.

I have both CDs, and while I like Franz Ferdinand's sound, the Killers CD as a whole is better.

Franz - they've got the whole package. Their style is pretty original, the music is great, and they are amazing live. The Killers are good, but not great. I'm not so sure they'll be able to sustain themselves.

Franz all the way.

I tried to give Hot Fuss a listen the other day. After the fourth track, I turned the fucker off and I have no desire to hear anymore. Me no likey at all, so to speak

I love them both...I go back and forth as to which I prefer. However, if I sit down to listen to each of them, I'm more likely to skip over a couple Killers tracks than a couple of FF tracks.

Franz Ferdinand, after hearing a few Killers songs I really just lost interest, they just didn't grab my attention.

They own the Brit Awards this year, they have been nominated for something like 7 awards.

I just about spit out my drink because of the order, but good choices overall.

Anyhoo, The Killers own Franz Ferdinand. In my opinion, there's really not much contest.
