David Bowie

VS.

Franz Ferdinand

I must admit- “Sound and Vision” is one of my favorite Bowie songs. Will I let that prejudice my judgment? Of course not! If Franz Ferdinand cover blew the original all the way back to Berlin, I would applaud the loudest. Franz is a great band, and their sound could easily take Bowie’s  vision and do something even better.  See what I did there? Amazing producer Xenomania even assists on the latter!

The result? A good cover. Nice mix and performance, but ambition lacking. It plays it too close. I give Bowie a lot of credit, but I still believe even the best can possibly be improved somehow. Unfortunately not for Ferdinand here. Bowie prevails!
