Tape Deck Heart Deluxe Explicit
So, every now and then, I will ask a friend if they have heard of or like Frank Turner, and every single time, I'll get a quizicle look and a "no." Some things are just not fair! Justin Bieber will sell his ridiculous amounts of records and everyone is listening to "Thrift Shop," and here we have an extremely talented musician/songwriter who actually writes about things---and those things are not all depressing.
I love how the song goes along in a folk-pop bliss until we get to "Four Simple Words," a very effective teasing of hipsters, and a bristling at him being characterized as a hipster artist. He is so much more than that.
Best songs: "Four Simple Words," "Recovery," "Plain Sailing Weather," "Anymore" The latter is an emotional departure from the rest of the album, really bringing the tempo down and letting you in a little bit to Turner's darker, sadder side. Great stuff. The whole album is such a great work that it's hard to pick just a few songs. I firmly believe the entire album should be listened to from start to finish without skipping or shuffle.
