Loud Releases: Right Thoughts, Right Words, Right Actions

Franz Ferdinand's fourth offering is like an eager attempt to make up for the fact that their last two albums were somewhat lacklustre compared to their triumphant self-titled debut in 2004.

Their latest release is a combination of some of their most successful efforts with some lesser works, resulting in a confusing mix.

It starts off in familiar territory with Right Action and Evil Eye, but sinks to a low with the cheesy-sounding track Fresh Strawberries before rising to a high with fast dance-rock tracks like Bullet and then dipping again with Goodbye Lovers & Friends.

On the plus side, this will please all fans who might have favoured one album over another from the band's discography.
