Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that these intelligent and witty songs contain just a few violent images and drinking/drug references.
What's the story?
Franz Ferdinand follows their perky, intelligent, punk-infused debut CD with a perky, intelligent, punk-infused second CD, just as though they weren't tortured by self-doubt or insecurity and were having a great old time performing together and growing as artists.
Is it any good?
As on FRANZ FERDINAND, their first album, they pay gleeful respects to their musical heroes and influences while creating fresh-sounding, interesting tunes.
The lyrics contain a bit of violent fantasy and melodrama, as well as a couple of references to drugs and drinking. But the sound is fresh and fun, and this Scottish quartet seems to be having such a great time on their rock & roll adventure that they sound refreshingly wholesome anyway.
