FRANK TURNER / England Keep My Bones [2011]

Nice-guy Englishman folkster Frank Turner is really coming into his own on his 4th studio album England Keep My Bones.
Lifting the album title from Shakespeare, Turner's songwriting style is noticeably the strongest it's ever been. While he's dropped the "I'm the underdog" type lyrics, Tuner has opted for more of an album based on his English identity and the rich history of his homeland. Retaining his punk rock like attitude and strong sense of the genuine and passionate, Turner seems to be heading to greener pastures.
England Keep My Bones proves no matter how big Turner is getting, he can still be fun, real and never forgetful of where he came from.

5 Lives and Deaths of King John out of 5

Songs Of Note: I Still Believe; Glory Hallelujah

I think this is my album of the year. It doesn't have a single bad song on it.
I adore the "English Curse".
A definite 5 when I'm here I'm home out of 5 from me, too. It's a future classic.

I haven't picked my album of the year yet but this is definitely near the #1 spot of my top 10 of 2011.
