Tonight: Franz Ferdinand

January 18, 2009

When Twiligh Omens ended, it was fourth perfect modern pop rock song in a row from the start of the album. I worried what kind of a beast it is going to become. A few songs later, I was, to bo honest, relieved – they were good but not as brilliant as the openers, so fortunately these guys are really human. But then, it’s the third album of all these rhythmic clever short songs… they have to do something strange, they can’t go on like this forever! Finally, yes, they dissolve in the 7+ minutes long Lucid Dreams from a sound feast into a most primitive mechanic beat. In Dream Again, they’re back to do a simple and beautiful mostly vocal Beach House-style tune repeating “I live to dream again”. Wrapping up with Katherine, an acoustic guitar, talking about what we will never get. What we do get however, is Franz Ferdinand‘s best album period.
