Produced by Rich Costey & Franz Ferdinand. Album You Could Have It So Much Better. You Could Have It So Much Better Lyrics
English Deutsch Español Français Italiano 日本語 Português (Brasil) Русский.
Sound - 10 This album is still as good as Franz Ferdinand's self-titled debut album, with the same good guitar riffs and techniques, but this time round, I think the drumming has improved a lot, and the music, like good music, is catchy and easy to listen to. The music variety hasn't changed much, but the stuff that you'll find here can be both similar and refreshing at the same time, so if you liked the first album, do have a listen at this, it's equally good and deserves to be heard.
Band Name Franz Ferdinand. Album Name You Could Have It So Much Better. Other productions from Franz Ferdinand. Right Thoughts, Right Words, Right Action.
And Franz Ferdinand are too smart to do something like that. Having been round the block more times than a tramp’s dog, 33-year-old Alex Kapranos was never going to blow his last big chance. Instead, he knuckled down, so determined that the second Franz album would be out this year that he missed guitarist and co-songwriter Nick McCarthy’s wedding. Franz have also learned to rock out. The first bars of opener ‘The Fallen’ could almost be Kasabian. You Could Have It So Much Better’, meanwhile, is an ‘(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction’ for 2005, both in its biting guitar attack and in its lyrics, which update Mick Jagger watching a cigarette commercial with Alex viewing a grinning goon/On my TV screen/Telling us that/It’s alright because/She wears this and/He said that and/If you. get some of these/It’ll all be alright.
