For all the hype about the 'Nand-jobs being more literate and tempered on round two, You Could Have It So Much Better is a full-on party record.

AllMusic

Not so much a sophomore slump as a rushed follow-up, You Could Have It So Much Better probably would've been better if Franz Ferdinand had waited until they had a batch of songs as consistent as their first album, but as it stands, it's still pretty good.

The Fallen still goes hard af and I still randomly chant lyrics to Do You Want To.

Not as good as their debut, but still a solid album.

There's a tremendous need to wear their dancing shoes and spin the disco-ball, so they didn't spend much energy to the songs and headed to their wardrobe.
