Franz Ferdinand
music — UK — 2004

I`m not sure why I had never listened to this record in its entirety before but that`s a solid fact. While listening to obscure and occasionally completely unknown bands I somehow missed the most popular record of the previous year. Probably it`s for the best for I can judge it now more clearly than at the time when "Take me out" was constantly played on the radio. Still I don`t have much to say - FF did have a really fresh sound on this album, the provided some bombastic tracks which meant fun, fun, fun and the opening "Jacqueline" sounds like Leonard Cohen for the first minute. Yes, and "This fire" is my favourites song on the album.
