All the songs in this album are fantastic!! Franz Ferdinand is an incredibly talented band that creates fearless music! They respect many different genres of music and they aren't (...) enough to say so. So, you see, you dimwitted metal rock punktards, you don't have to publicly hate pop music to be successful. No fear!!! wooo! music! wooo! WOOO!!! WOOOOOOO!!!

I bought this album before "Take Me Out" had hit the radio and I was disappointed from the beginning. Being a fan of the BritPop/Rock scene I thought I'd found a new gem, but this album is nothing but a boring, ho hum effort. I don't understand why this album has garnered so much attention and critical aclaim. The only standout track is "Take Me Out", and the rest did nothing to inspire me or really even catch my attention. I had a tough time "getting into" the album and gave up after 3 or 4 plays through. Franz Ferdinand just doesn't do it for me.

This is a perfect CD for people who don't have any taste in music, but want to drop the name of the CD just to look cool. It sucks... really.

This CD is fabulous. The Dark of the Matinee is my favorite song not just on this CD, it's one of my favorites of all time. It's amazing. This CD is so catchy, and you won't mind that the songs are constantly in your head. Can't say enough, so I won't say much at all, just buy this CD.

Format: Audio CD
In 1990 Glasgow was named "European Capital of Culture." In 2004 it finally merited the title by serving as the launchpad of one of the most cultured rock bands on the planet: Franz Ferdinand, a group of four musicians from different parts of the UK, who met less than 2 years ago on the Glasgow student/club scene.
Their cultural depth is nowhere more evident than in the skillful use of Surrealist collage and Soviet Constructivism to highlight the mechanical, brutalised feel of the music on the video for "Take Me Out."
Although often called a hard city, musical tastes in Glasgow have always been more fey, louche, and decadent, in an old-fashioned Weimar Republic sort of way, leading to music that is both more unique and, until now, less commercially successful than the beerish, laddish rock or druggy blip-blip stuff that has (mis)represented Britain over recent years.
Franz Ferdinand's take on post-punk, retro 80s, art rock (with globs of funk and lounge singing thrown in) is among other things, an expression of this. The attitude -- angular guitars/ rushed, glib, affecting arrangements/ detached, ironic singing -- fits perfectly with the slightly peeved way people feel in big cities, unleashing some of the same modernist angst still associated with bands like Joy Division, but with a Talking Heads sense of fun.
Catchy yet edgy; traditional yet fresh!

Hey, listen for just one minute. Why are you guys all arguing over these reviews??
Ok from the beginning...I'm at University in Glasgow (the city where FF are from) and have seen these boys live twice. I have also met them and got my album signed( all really nice guys). I think this gives me the authority to tell you...buy this album!
Don't compare them to anyone, they're unique with their catchy riffs and witty lyrics. Not too heavy, just really catchy. Just enjoy the experience, there's not a poor song on here. Definitely one of those albums you can play the whole way through without skipping tracks.
(Ps Franz Ferdinand is someone's name. Archduke Franz Ferdinand was asassinated 28th June 1914 in Sarejavo, Bosnia. Undoubtedly one of the factors fuelling the beginning of World War 1. So there you go!)

Ok, I'll admit it I looove "take me out" (that's probably because my favorite band is Led Zepplin, and some people say the riff's stolen from them, but anyway...) I bought the cd and the rest of it SUCKS! Boring-ly repetative...everything! Beats, lyrics, notes, everything. If you're a fan of pop-type dance remixes, you might like it, but otherwise, don't waste your money.

Franz Ferdinand's shallow debut album is arguably the worst thing that has happened to Rock'n Roll Revival so far. If they're too lazy to give any meaning to what they do, maybe we should feel too lazy to buy their records. Who said danceable music has to be music of no importance? Buddy Holly, The Beatles, New Order, Pulp... All proved you don't have to sell out to produce amazing disco tunes. I wasn't surprised to learn that Franz Ferdinand took half of their inspiration from Duran Duran. Bands who make danceable music for the sake of it ain't what Rock'n Roll needs!
