Tonight - Franz Ferdinand

"Tonight" isn't half as good as their last album ("You could have it so much better".) Not jumpy enough, not quite the energy or the beautiful melody ("Elenor put your boots on") or the post-teen exuberance ("Walk away") and hence "Tonight" isn't quite as much fun. Only "Ulysses" sounds fully engaging and worthwhile. "Katherine Kiss Me", while good, tries to hard to be "Elenor..." and fails.
