Franz Ferdinand. The Scottish group's debut is a dirty, stylish racket filled with needling guitars courtesy of the school of art/punk (circa 1982). Throw in their tendency to fall back on a solid 4/4 beat, and you've got a recipe for mega-hipness in 2004. This wouldn't mean a thing if the songs weren't good, but they are. If you like British 80's rock at all, get involved with this album. "It's always better on holiday, that's why we only work when WE NEED THE MONEY!" - jp/aw/tk
