Turner emerged from Britain's post-hardcore punk scene in 2001 as the lead singer of Xtra Mile Recordings act Million Dead. Since going solo in 2006, he has transformed from underground hero into a bona fide mainstream success story in the U.K., releasing four full-length albums, including 2011's England Keep My Bones, which led Spin to write that 'Frank Turner gives sincerity a good name' and to describe the album as 'an exclamation point in an increasingly brilliant career.' Paste has said, 'It's easy to love British singer-songwriter Frank Turner. As if he weren't already pulling at our heartstrings with his creative lyrics, rowdy songs and his well-known affinity for beer. But Turner's live performances take those qualities to a new level.'

Having seen him live multiple times, it's obvious how hard he works and his passion to play. This album is an awesome reflection of an artist who refuses to stand still for anything or anyone. Not so different that someone familiar with his work wouldn't recognize him, but at the same time new and fresh sounding. A brilliant guy with a talented band refusing to fall into safe, boring or predictable music. Listen to it...then listen a few more times for good measure.
I happened upon Frank Turner by listening to The Gaslight Anthem's pandora station. I was busy tiling my kitchen when the song "The Road" came on. This song prompted some internet research on Frank Turner and a few hours later of youtube listening, I was an instant fan. This music is what is missing on the radio and pop channels throughout the world: highly "listenable" tunes with deeply insightful lyrics that resonate throughout the human experience. Not the way Hollywood portrays life, but how WE live it. Frank has an insatiable itch for adventure that keeps his songs fun and interesting, yet he doesn't stray from telling us the good and the bad of his many sordid experiences.
Now, once you're sold, the question becomes where to begin... Typically I start at the beginning with the first album an artist ever made and follow them through the years to experience their progression in chronological order. I decided, however, that this time I would take the "it's not where you're from, it's where you're at" mentality and start with Tape Deck Heart. I was not disappointing I did. The album has all the elements I love from the older stuff and it's slightly more musically refined and lyrically more raw! Win. My favorite songs are "Plain Sailing Weather" and "Four Simple Words."
PSW is like combining The Menzingers' "The Obituaries" and Mumford and Sons' "Little Lion Man" (can't wait for the backlash of comments heading my way for making that mash-up). Anyway, Tape Deck Heart is great. Period.
If you, like Lars, have "made a decision, [that] punk rock is my religion," then Frank Turner is your ordained minister; enjoy the sermon...
This record is full of fun shout/sing along songs, and quiet contemplative songs. It's a brilliant mix of pop/punk/folk that Frank makes all his own. A must have vinyl for any Frank Turner fan.
