Franz Ferdinand - Tonight: Franz FerdinandThese Glasgow art-school rockers’ stated mission was “to make records girls can dance to.” They certainly fulfilled that promise, producing some of the decade’s most infectious dance tracks, including “Take Me Out” and “Do You Want To.” The group’s third album is equally robust, kicking off with the edgy “Ulysses,” on which singer Alex Kapranos delivers a devilish “C’mon, let’s get high” over sinister synthesizers and a throbbing bass. Other songs of lust like “Send Him Away” and “Turn It On” boast even wilder rhythms.
