Franz Ferdinand "You Could Have It So Much Better"
For instance, by buying a different album. I picked up this with Portishead's Third, thinking that if Franz Ferdinand's first album was so good then their second must also be pretty kicking. Sadly, no, this is a good illustrator of why it is usually best to avoid second albums, with all the songs sounding distinctly like FF by numbers tunes that were not good enough for the first album. It is not completely offensive to the ears, but it is all a bit average.
