    Possibly my favourite album of the year. Not one song I don't like to be honest. Some of Frank's best in 'I Still Believe', 'Peggy Sang The Blues', 'I Am Disappeared' and 'Glory Hallelujah'. Also, I would recommend the deluxe version, since 'Song for Eva Mae' (especially) is up there with the best of the 12 standard tracks.

    Frank Turner does it again, after a few years wait England Keep my Bones is finally here and Frank has written his best album yet. With a wide variety of tracks from harder songs like "One Foot Before the Other" to softer tracks like "Nights Become Days"

    England Keep My Bones is evidence enough that the Frank Turner train is still picking up speed, but how far it travels from here depends on how much the man at the controls wants to stick to themes which, for all their epic sweep, just aren't for everybody.

    The wonderfully titled England Keep My Bones features some of the finest songs Frank has yet written. [4 Jun 2011, p.52]

    Certainly, these times demand an earnest folk-punk poet of the poeple, but Turner's tracts are a little too woolly to truly connect. [July 2011, p. 105]
