    [5.9] It's interesting, that's for sure, but the spectacle that once was Franz Ferdinand is now a silly pop band that doesn't have consistent or strong songwriting. It's definitely a likable album, I just don't really like the incredibly saturated sound that they've put forth. I much prefer the carefree, simple sound of their debut.

    Not a song sticks. It's sheer style that carries this disc, albeit one that sounds great.
  2. Last year’s stellar Battle Born, felt considerably more vibrant than Right Thoughts, Right Words, Right Action ever does.

    This fourth outing puts to bed both Tonight's frantic lonerism as well as any notion of a second night out with Alex Kapranos' equal-opportunity, Jacqueline-and-Michael seducer. [No. 102, p.56]
