Released: 5th December 2005.
"Walk Away", the second single from Franz Ferdinand's recent album "You Could Have it So Much Better", sees Alex Karpranos and co take a different route to their usual sound. While the disco-influenced "Do You Want To" was a fun track, "Walk Away" is slower and more reflective, and even sounds like something from the 1960s (quite ironic really, as the music video spoofs that era). Unfortunately, while it's a nice, laid-back song, it can get annoying, and it finishes too suddenly. Nonetheless, expect another big hit from the bonnie lads.
Second single from the "You Could Have It So Much Better" album, and it's pretty typical Franz Ferdinand fare here. Somewhat similar to "Take Me Out" in that the opening is rather different to the main part of the song, only this time it's more a case of a song that doesn't get going for the first minute or so. So yeah, it's decent, but maybe not the greatest track they've done.
