You Could Have It So Much Better

Franz Ferdinand is one of my favorite bands. They formed in Glasgow in 2002. The band spent much of 2005 in the studio in Scotland working on their follow-up album, You Could Have It So Much Better, which was released on 3 October 2005. The band initially intended to leave the album self-titled like their debut, but they changed it to You Could Have It So Much Better...With Franz Ferdinand before settling on the final title. A lot of You Could Have It So Much Better feels like a super-stylized caricature of the band's sound, with exaggeratedly spiky guitars, brooding crooning, and punky-yet-danceable beats. My favorite song is 'Eleanor Put Your Boots On.'

Enjoy

Such a great band. I've always thought the singer sounds a lot like Weebls
