franz ferdinand - franz ferdinand

Can Brit-pop be urbane a bit geeky? A bit edgy? A bit "New York" (a lá the Strokes)? I think it can.

"Take Me Home" was the first track I heard off this album, I was probably driving around listening to KROQ at the time. The opening section of the song really sounded like The Strokes, but then comes the second part (forgive me, my musical training and knowledge of the basic terminology is eluding me for the moment), and it's a bit, well, gaudy. But a good kind of gaudy. And I like it.

A long-lost friend haphazardly mentioned F.F. as a band she had been listening to as of late. So, bored, I spent a night downloading the album. I'm still listening to it, getting a feel for it, but there's definitely something there...
