Frank Turner is the greatest export the UK has right now. Having heard him on Radio 1 at the back end of 2009, and getting hold of his entire back catalogue, I feel that Love, Ire and Song is his strongest effort of the lot. Not only does Frank manage to say what many of us feel about not only our own lives, but the state of the country in general, but he does so with such beautiful melodies, that his voice manages to make me feel more than music rarely ever does. Listening to the lyrics on this album fills me with anger in that I can't express myself in the ways that he does, and how easily it comes to him. My personal favourites on this album are definitely Love, Ire and Song itself, along with the radio tracks of Long Live the Queen and Reasons Not To Be An Idiot. The albums acoustic/folk/punk rock sound really is a breath of fresh air in the frankly stagnant music industry we find ourselves lumbered with, and gives a glimmer of hope that the British music industry isn't as dead as it seems.
