SYNDICATE
Posted by: Dave on October 17, 2005 at 10:03 pm

Sound: Much more of the debonair and decadent discotheque punk/rock that dominated their first album – a super-catchy piece of pop perfection that was my #2 album of 2004. However, they cut out the couple synthier moments in favor of Bowieicon/Beatles-esque, piano/acoustic guitar balladry (“Eleanor Put Your Boots Onicon” and “Fade Togethericon“), which isn’t a great fit for them.
Heavy Rotation tracks:The Fallenicon“; “Do You Want Toicon“; “This Boyicon
Medium Rotation tracks:Evil and a Heathenicon“; “You Could Have It So Much Bettericon
Recommended: To those looking for a similar and less impressive helping of fun and danceable rock from the band that’s modernized the late 70s/early 80s sound better than any of their contemporaries. This album lacks the relentless barrage of hits their debut boasted, but the first three tracks are high caliber Franz Ferdinand.
Grade: B+
