“Return of the kings" — A review of Franz Ferdinand’s "Right Thoughts, Right Words, Right Action" album as seen in Singapore’s English-language daily, The Straits Times. September 5, 2013.
"Zesty… archly aware… sharp shooters… McCartney gone evil… The chaps are art-rockers but without the supercilious air of nonsense…" Put here to entertain FFFanatics, Helen Chase, me and you (amongst others).
"Love Illumination sways like Robert Palmer’s 1986 pop hit Addicted To Love, and shares the same emo desperation.” I hadn’t spotted that quality before. Mr Palmer: emo? Who knew?
Either way, great album with great songs. Have a lovely day.
