This is a great album to listen to while driving - very catchy, wide awake music! Listen a few times and you can't help singing along to it (in my case I keep the windows up in case my voice causes an accident)!
I first heard Franz Ferdinand on the radio, "Take Me Out", and thought back then what a great track! This usually leads me to buying an album, and I was not disappointed when I listened to Franz Ferdinand. Some really great bands have come from Scotland, this being one of them… Read Full Review

Franz Ferdinand are one of the best things to come out of Scotland since Travis. One of the best bands I've heard in a while. This album is excellent. Take Me Out will be a classic in a few years time… Read Full Review

Franz Ferdinand, Franz Ferdinand: I know I may have made some mortal enemies in a space of a few minutes of reading this but the truth has to be told. The sad story is that I had bought the album after hearing "take me out" and "the dark of the matinee" on the radio and falling in love with them. I had expected for the rest of the album to be as perfect how naive I was the album was o.k but I think not as good as the two hit singles that led Franz Ferdinand to British and European stardom… Read Full Review

Franz Ferdinand, Franz Ferdinand - I thought just about everyone has this album... No?
You should be ashamed of yourself.
If I haven't already persuaded you to go & get it, then I'll try even harder:
A good 5 songs from this album should released in my opinion. If you like 'Take Me Out' you'll love 'Tell Her Tonight'!… Read Full Review

This CD is okay. If given the opportunity, I'd take it back. I mean, it's okay, but not fantastic. Not worth the price of CD's today… Read Full Review

Franz Ferdinand, I think are overrated. I borrowed the CD from my friend and I thought it was going to be a surprise to my ears but I actually didn't understand what the critics were talking about. "It's just like any other band out there" I said to myself. I think they are too busy strumming eighth-notes throughout the album to bring this to their "highly-acclaimed" sound which I was expecting.
So, Franz Ferdinand is nothing new… Read Full Review

Franz Ferdinand, Franz Ferdinand - I never really listen to this short of music but after hearing "Take Me Out" on the radio, I decided to splash out and buy the album! And, to my surprise it wasn't like any other album that I had listened to before, where there was one good song that the band had released and the rest of the songs on the album were awful! Each and every song was tuneful and pleasant to listen to! Especially "Jacqueline" and "Tell Her Tonight" It was also great value for money… Read Full Review

Franz Ferdinand, Franz Ferdinand - My dad bought this for the family because me and my sister had mentioned that we would like to listen to it. Every note is in tune and the harmonies are excellent. With songs such as 'Matinee' and 'Come on Home,' (not forgetting the outright 'Michael') this CD is one of the best of the many CD's that we have in the house. A surefire hit!… Read Full Review

Glaswegians Franz Ferdinand only signed to Domino in June last year, and already they are set to be the biggest newcomers of 2004. The debut single, 'Darts of Pleasure,' got the music press' attention, and gained a fair few fans. Then, in a great piece of marketing, the follow-up single was released after Christmas, but gained airplay before, during and after Christmas, the latter two being quieter times for the music business. The end result was large amounts of airplay and a Top 3 hit to… Read Full Review

Franz Ferdinand, Franz Ferdinand - This album is brilliant! Every single song is catchy and makes you want to get up and dance! The songs are different to others around at the moment with many of them changing in the middle into what could be a different song, whilst keeping the beat of the previous half. The lead singer, Alex Kapranos, has a brilliant voice which is unmistakable and really gives the band an individual sound. The combination of 3 guitarists is sometimes tricky as you need to… Read Full Review

After buying the Franz Ferdinand cd right when it came out (after listening to all the songs for quite a while on the net), it felt good to hear it again! ~the music is funny, to-the-point and recognizable (which is in my case is almost always a negative thing, but this time it turned out well).
Seeing them in Rotterdam last Friday and the day after in Amsterdam made me even more enthusiastic about them. They really seem to have fun and the spread out all kinds of good vibes when on stage.

The Franz Ferdinand album does exactly what the band said they wanted it to do - it makes girls want to dance (well, at least this girl). The songs are catchy, immediate and perfect for putting on while getting ready for a night out or driving around in the car. At the moment, having only had the CD for a week, I'm really enjoying it.
On the other hand, the singles off the album so far - Darts of Pleasure and Take Me Out are by far the best tracks, which tends to suggest that this one might… Read Full Review

I've just bourght the Franz Ferdinand CD after much hype and excitement. I've listerned too it a couple of times and it's really hit the spot. The single Take Me Out is a good representation of what you find on the album, quality guitar rifts catchy drum beats and entertaining lyrics. It says something when the only bad point I could think of was that the CD Cover is a bit rubbish!!… Read Full Review
