So my Dad comes up to my room and points a CD in my direction,
"Have you heard of this band?" he said.
I took the CD and turned it over. It was only a copy of the new Franz Ferdinand album that my Dad had downloaded wasn't it?
:D :D :D <3 <3 <3
Although in some ways I'm dissappointed. Not with the music though! Oh no! I was worried that maybe their second album wouldn't live up to the first, but after I've listened to it a couple of times I can say that that is not the case. I will, of course, have to listen to it further to decide how much I like it though.
What I mean is; I was quite enjoying the building excitement from waiting for the release of the album, and there weren't many days left. And then I had it suddenly thrust upon me. It almost feels like, if you will, looking in the wardrobe and finding the Christmas presents your Mum has bought you, in November. It feels kind of wrong and almost like the whole surprise has been spoiled a little, the magic has been ruined.
And so, with regret, I shall listen to the album now, but I shall leave it with my Dad and buy myself a spanking new copy when it comes out. Because I really like Franz Ferdinand and I want to have a proper version of their new album dammit (I always felt a little ashamed that I never got a proper copy of their first album).
That being said...
:D :D :D Woot!
lucky lucky you're so lucky
