This album is not as good as accessible as the first one, IMO, but maybe it's a grower!
I love Elenor also, I actually like the album better than the first one. Walk Away is my favorite, but the whole album is great.

"Do You Want To" is the weakest track

Exactly. There are some great songs on the album. It certainly rocks more than the first one, but on the other hand, there is more mellower stuff on this one.
The album is more varied and mature, but maybe not so cohesive as the first one.

I'm really excited to get it tomorrow! I'm a total Franz geek...
I've only heard the one single, so I'm stoked to hear the rest of the album

My review/impressions/yadayadayada.

"The Fallen" is very much Franz' earlier style but taken a step further. Brilliant opening track, already one of my favourites.

"This Boy" has an annoying chorus. Reminds me of "Cheating on You". I don't like. Yet.

"Walk Away" is a departure from their earlier stuff, lyrics are personal, and the beat is a tad slower. I really like it, and it's certainly one of the strongest on the album.

"Evil and a Heathen" is just very rock'n'roll. I like it, but it's not out of this world.

"You're the Reason I'm Leaving" is pure brilliance. I love this track, though again, it could've been on their first album.

"Eleanor Put Your Boots On" - wow. Totally new. I didn't expect this. An emotional lullaby with a twist. My favourite for the time being.

"Well That Was Easy" is a little weak. Don't know if I like it.

"What You Meant" I prefer the acoustic version (b-side), but it's a nice song.

"I'm Your Villain" has great drumming, and I really like the lyrics.

"You Could Have It So Much Better" - I bet this will be a single. Very up-beat, rock'n'roll track. I love it.

"Fade Together" is, like "Walk Away" a personal song, it has a sort of melancholy tone to it, and it certainly sounds new. Great lyrics: "Berlin, I love you, we're starting to fade... let's fade together."

"Outsiders" hasn't really grown on me yet. My least favourite together with "This Boy", but the riff is quite nice.

All in all I really love this album - maybe because it's Franz Ferdinand and it's new - but it certainly has new stuff that the band hasn't tried before. I see no potential "Take Me Out" no. 2, but it doesn't really matter for me. Two or three weak tracks but all in all very solid.

I liked it! I hope it grows more on me!

You Could Have it so much better was my favourite at the first listening but probably this will change

I'm listening to it now. It's a very nice album, but I'm not going to say much more about until I've listened to it maybe three more times.

I'm really liking this album


Definitely stands up to the debut

This will be on heavy rotation for a long while!

I think this is the album of the year. Some great, great songs. Brilliant songwriting. I think U2 was right when they said that Franz Ferdinand is a future challenger to their crown. I'm hearing their footsteps. These guys could have toured another year on the strength of their first album but instead went right into the studio.


The guitar riff on Walk Away is pure bad ass. It's rock and roll meets Sergio Leone...


Eleanor Put Your Boots On is one of the most beautiful tunes of the year.


Fade Together is another beautiful song.


Outsiders and Fallen kick ass.


This group is going to be around a long time.

So far I prefer the debut, simply because about 3 or 4 songs are weaker than anything on the debut. That said, the rest of the songs are great so time will tell.

I just saw Franz Ferdinand at the Greek Theatre last night. They were so, soooo good.


Do whatever you can to see this band live.

I'm a huge, huge U2 fan. I've seen them four times during this tour alone and I'm flying to NYC tomorrow to catch Monday night's show but I can honestly say that the show that Franz Ferdidand puts on at the moment just KICKS U2's ASS. It's just so alive.

Franz Ferdinand is hungry and passionate. Great guitars, incredible bass lines, pounding, pounding drums... Running around the stage....urging on the audience. Late in the set brought out a bottle of whiskey and started passing it around on stage...stood on TOP of the drums and played guitar. AWESOME!!!

Meet the future of rock and roll. Its name is Franz Ferdidand. They're getting ready to hit the East coast. Do whatever you can to see them.
