Franz Ferdinand

Well, i can't find a thread dedicated to these and i've searched so here it is. I personally have loved FF since the first album, i like every track, which is quite rare as far I go The 2nd album was good, but didn't have the same "wow" factor as the first. The Fallen is a great track. Then, some b-sides are very good. "Shopping for blood" and "Get up and use me" are just 2 examples. Anyone else like them?

Also I've been waiting for a new album for a while now. Its annoying =]

I completely agree with you. I absolutely loved every track on the first album, and the second wasn't as good, it was okay. The Fallen was definitely my favorite song on it though.

They forgot to include one of their best songs on YCHISMB, Wine In The Afternoon. But they're great anyway.

I got the Darts of Pleasure EP, which I really liked, the first album got boring and repetetive very, very quickly, Take Me Out got played to death and I can't listen to it now. Never bothered to get the second album and I actively avoided their set at V the other year.

All in all, not one of my favourite bands

They arn't doing too bad for them-selves, but i can't find it in my heart to like them... I just find the songs a little boring to be honest.

Meh I sort of thought they died along with the rest of whole nu-garage movement. I own their first album, which has some good tracks but is all sort of samey. My brother has their sophomore LP, but I never got around to listening to it all the way through.

They should have continued right after the second tour....the momentum was on. I saw them in concert for both albums and the first show was great.

a good b-side to hunt for for a franz fan..or maybe a non-fan would be 'don't start'..it came randomly onto my mp3 once and i loved it. great song.

I agree with this guy, they get way too samey. On both of their albums they find something they think works (which usually does for a while) and continue it through 3 - 4 songs. On the first album, they kept repeating that riff (i think it was only 2 songs though - i dunno) and on their latest album, they enjoyed ending countless songs with 'Yeah!', which pissed me off...

I really enjoy listening to this band. I was just wondering if anyone has heard anything about their new album?

First album was fantastic. Second album seemed sort of rushed, but still had it's golden moments.

All in all, you can't deny that they're so much fun live.

I loved a couple songs on the first CD, likes a few others, couldn't stand a number of them. The second CD, however, was godawful throughout. They should've waited for a while, let the hype die down, so that they could concentrate on maturing as a band... looking for a new sound. Rushed, rushed, rushed.

Alright, I'll admit that these guys do get kinda boring but every time I sit down and listen to them, it's great.

I find both albums to be very solid, not many (if any) weak tracks in either of them, but they are slightly samey, especially if you listen to them too much.
