Editorial Reviews

The multi-Grammy winning, million selling four-piece Franz Ferdinand release their fourth studio album titled Right Thoughts, Right Words, Right Action. This exuberant, unencumbered record is the first from the band in four years. In their time away, they've rediscovered the imagination, vitality and fun found on their classic, era-encapsulating debut album Franz Ferdinand. The ten songs that make up the album contain all the hallmarks of Franz Ferdinand's sound- heavyweight hooks, painterly lyrical detail and precise aesthetic vision all packed into pop punch.

1. Right Action
2. Evil Eye
3. Love Illumination
4. Stand On The Horizon
5. Fresh Strawberries
6. Bullet
7. Treason! Animals.
8. The Universe Expanded
9. Brief Encounters
10. Goodbye Lovers & Friends

For their fourth CD, Franz Ferdinand rejuvenate themselves for "Right Thoughts, Right Words, Right Actions." "Tonight" was a more introspective affair, and allegedly a concept album about a day in the fife of the Ferds. Not this time. RTRWRA pulls out the choppy guitars and funky drums and bass of the first two albums. "Come home, practically all is nearly forgiven," they invite right off the bat. Which is classic FF. Maybe you fell off the bandwagon for "Tonight," but that's not their fault. Get back on board and enjoy the ride, just as long as you remember who's doing the driving.

The destination is a party on the Ferd's terms. You'll get it from the fuzzy guitars on "Love Illumination" or the ripeness of the semi-psychedelic "Fresh Strawberries" (one of my faves on the disc), dance to Chic pound of "Evil Eye." Or you can wonder what they are saying to you as a fan as they demand that you skip the pop music and "don't wear bright colors, you know I hate bright colors," as they wish "Goodbye Lovers and Friends."

The over the top Alex Kapranos snarls and brags across RTRWRA's 10 songs, with nearly relentless energy. Feel how insistently he commands you on "Treason! Animals!" or the title track "Right Action." They do throw in a couple of change ups, like the synth heavy "Brief Encounters," which sounds like it would have been at home on "Tonight," or the only self-effacing track on the album, the still dance heavy "Stand On The Horizon."

"Right Thoughts Right Words Right Action" is a fine return to form for Franz Ferdinand. If you're looking for the sort of awakening pop punch of the debut or "You Could Have It So Much Better," you'll find it here.

Some people, even some FF fans, are not giving this album a very favorable reception. I guess it's true that the album is not really remarkable or ground-breaking in any way. Most of the tracks return to the basics that made FF's first album so awesome, and this is not a bad thing. But there are a few new elements, including some retro sounds, so it's not like this album is just a clone of "Franz Ferdinand". All in all, it is a very good album but not one that's likely to get a lot of critical attention.

I'd say that 7 of the 10 tracks sound pretty much like those on "FF", with some different elements thrown in for variety. "Right Action" is my favorite track. It is classic FF, with a steadily driving beat and strong bass. "Evil Eye" has a beat that reminds me of some earlier period, probably late 70's or early 80's. "Love Illumination" features a couple of 60's elements: some organ lines, and a fuzzy guitar that sounds psychedelic. "Bullet" and "Treason! Animals" are, again, pretty much classic FF. The organ is featured again in "Brief Encounters", along with an unusual (and loud) guitar solo. Likewise, "Goodbye Lovers And Friends" has some decorative instrumental touches.

The tracks that deviate the most from the standard FF formula are "Stand On The Horizon", "Fresh Strawberries" and "The Expanded Universe". Nothing too radical, but "Horizon" and "Strawberries" sound more like mid-tempo pop songs than FF rock songs, and the latter has some 60's guitar going on behind the vocal. The most "different" track is "The Expanded Universe". It is quieter than the others, and it has synth "beeps" characteristic of early 80's New Wave hits. Also it has a guitar sound that is more "fluid" than FF's trademark quick, metallic guitar strokes.

How many of you like me were enamored with Franz Ferdinand back in 2004? It's hard to describe, but something about that debut album lit a post-punk fuse in me. I'd just begun listening to Gang of Four and had dabbled in The Jam as well. These cats were just the right modern take on a untouchable music noise that I was just beginning to love. I imagined Ray Davies sounding like "Michael", "Darts Of Pleasure", "This Fire", and the excellent "Come On Home" had he been born 20 years later. Alex Kapranos had this mix of snarky ambiguity and genuine sad sackery in his vocals and lyrics on that first album that I thought for sure they'd be spanking other revivalists of the same ilk in years to come. So I wasn't completely correct in that assumption. But I wasn't completely incorrect. You Could Have It So Much Better had these Scottish Orange Juice disciples putting their dance shoes away so they could show some rock machismo. Then 2009s Tonight: Franz Ferdinand was a mix of rock n' roll noise, dance floor strut, and Moog freakouts. Most folks in-the-know would say both of the follow-ups were sorta failures(records sales say differently), at least artistically. I'm not in-the-know. I'm just a schlub from the Midwest that likes his beer strong, his pizza drowned in cheese, and his dance rock boogie-inducing. Franz Ferdinand have been known to be a bit bitey, rather cheesy at times, and can make this middle-aged white guy want to strut his wares more often than not. Well, after nearly breaking up, Franz Ferdinand have returned 4 years later with Right Thoughts, Right Words, Right Action, and while not breaking new ground have made the best with the fertile soil they've been working for nearly 10 years.Read more ›
