I've only been a fan of Frank Turner for a couple years. I started with his first two albums and I was hooked. I gave Poetry of the Deed a shot and it didn't stick at first but it grew on me and in the past year, I've listened to it more than any of his other albums, by choice.

To the present. I've had live versions of most of these songs since April, so there won't be a kneejerk reaction (no pun intended, for those that would get it). Now that I have the album, even better. Yes, he has a band, not just a man and his guitar, but his talent for great songwriting shows through. It's Frank Turner moving forward with his art, not making the same album. I'm allowing myself to enjoy it. It's pretty easy to do and I just shake my head at those whining that the music is different.

Eulogy is simple opener, the kind Frank can open with at shows, everyone will know the words, and know that a great night is ahead.

There are great songs on here with full use of the band, particularly I am Disappeared and One Foot Before the Other and there are some great ones with mostly Frank and his guitar. My current favorites of that variety are If Ever I Stray and Rivers, but like album that's well done, your favorites will change.

There are days when I want to listen to Wessex Boy on repeat, and looking at past relationships, sometimes Redemption really tugs at my heart.

Glory Hallelujah is the first I've heard of Frank dedicate a song to religion. Frank keeps it simple, and it's well written, though that double negative in the chorus bothers me a bit. It remains positive and a reminder to live the one life you have to the fullest, a common theme in many of Frank's songs.

4.0 out of 5 stars Folk punk for the car November 5, 2011
By T Cook
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
A real mix of tunes and emotions. We have sing-a-longs with a pint in your hand, we have rainy-day day-dreams of nostalgia and rather oddly, a warning to anyone fancy having a pop of emulating William Duke of Normandy and invading England's green and pleasant lands. Although the style of music swings through the emotions, the main theme of this punk-folk album is the artist's love of England. This is not however, a sentimental cowboy-esque idealistic view that one might find in US country, nor is it a right-wing 'send the buggers back' diatribe, rather a genuine love of Albion. Therefore, it was rather refreshing to listen to it, as we English are usually extremely self-deprecating on the verge of being embarrassed at being English or we have shaved our heads and are Nazi-saluting Union flags and signing 'no surrender'. This album is not perfect, the tune about the dangers of drug abuse has been done and the one about being a river was a bit too much, however the others are well worth a good listen. So my advice would be: head down to the New Forest, The Fenns, the Downs, take a long walk, find a pub, drink real ale, eat a steak and ale pie and make this the soundtrack to your afternoon of appreciating what's around you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Buy this version! September 26, 2011
Format:Audio CD
I am a huge Frank Turner fan and therefore this review may slightly be biased. I do believe this is his most solid album thus far in his career. While I originally felt that same feeling about "Love Ire & Song," after listening to them both numerous times, I feel as if this is a more complete album. I want to emphasize that people should buy the extended or import version of this album with the three extra songs. They are totally worth the extra money. Next to "The Ballad of Me & My Friends," "Eulogy" is one of the best short songs ever. It is a fantastic way to start the album and left me wanting so much more. I often wonder how great that song could be if he extended it to 4 minutes. "Peggy Sang the Blues" is absolutely phenominal. It is one of the best songs on this album. What could be better than a song about playing cards and drinking whiskey with your grandmother? There is also a catchy chorus that has been stuck in my head for months that goes "It doesn't matter where you've come from, it matters where you go, no one gets remembered for the things they didn't do." "I Still Believe" was the anthem to promote this album and his "Rock and Roll" EP. It is a very catchy tune. "Rivers" is one of many songs that gives it the England feel. You get a small sense of understanding of Frank and his home of England by listening to this song. It is slow but the lyrics and music are beautiful. "I am Disappeared" is by far my facvorite Frank Turner song right now. The music and lyrics just pump me up and make me feel good. I repeated this song many times when I got this album because I was so in love with the song. It is appearantly a song about a dream Frank had about riding around Detroit with Bob Dylan; at least that is what he said at a show. "English Curse" is his folk song. Read more ›
