Frank Turner - England Keep My Bones

Frank Turner's transition from raging front man in post-hardcore heroes Million Dead into a respected acoustic raconteur is undoubtedly impressive. However, his camp fire ramblings and angry rants soon become tiresome with much of Turner’s fourth album feeling like material he has trod before. Does the world really need another album extolling the virtues of Albion, a protagonist’s varying thoughts on his homeland? On the evidence of ‘England Keep My Bones’, the answer to that is a flat no.
