Franz Ferdinand's new single, Ulysses, sucks.
I listened to a couple other tracks from the new album and was underwhelmed.
I sort of know what it is -- they turned up the wrong knob on this one. Too much buzzing electronic dance, not enough roaring rock riffs. Big choruses, yes, but so what. Give me something I can work with.
Maybe I'm so vitriolic because the Franz was some of the much-balleyhooed stuff I listened to when I first started going to college, and it sort of paved the way for some of my musical interests.
Sure, comparing it to the older albums, they might just be progressing down a path they were sure to follow, but I think they followed it too far.
