Instead of pulling a Weezer and identifying their albums by the cover's color scheme, the SXSW dancepunk preemies decided not to be totally irritating and devised a throwaway title. It remains to be seen whether this sophomore effort's singles are as deliciously disposable as previous booty-shakers"This Fire"and"Take Me Out."


''You Could Have It So Much Better'' is the second studio album by Glaswegian indie rock band Franz Ferdinand that was first released 3 October 2005 in the United Kingdom. Recorded in both the United States and their own studio in Glasgow with producer Rich Costey, the album gave birth to the release of four UK Top 30 singles "Do You Want To" on 23 August 2005, "The Fallen / L. Wells", "Walk Away" and "Eleanor Put Your Boots On." The album became the band's first UK #1 album and although their debut album was relatively successful in the USA, going platinum and reaching #32, ''You Could Have It So Much Better'' managed to reach #8 and earned gold status in the States. The cover design is modeled on Alexander Rodchenko's 1924 portrait of Lilya Brik. It was produced by Rick Costey and Franz Ferdinand. - Wikipedia
