  • Summary: The former singer for the UK punk band Million Dead releases his third solo album.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 3 out of 6
  2. Negative: 0 out of 6
  1. Turner's third solo release shows how versatile he is as he single handedly bridges the gap between Brian Fallon and Billy Bragg. [Oct 2009, p.115]
  2. He's mastered the craft of writing tight and focused rock songs that transcend their beginnings but make no concessions to current sonic fashions.
  3. Poetry of the Deed still isn’t the perfect Frank Turner album, as a few songs sound a little generic due to the full-band arrangements not shouldering their part of the load. But Poetry‘s a darn good one, showing that the striving, complicated songs of the past weren’t flukes.
  4. Perhaps it's the weight of expectancy that renders this a flawed if enjoyable effort.
  5. His third album keeps the momentum going, even if its utilitarian construction is probably better live. [Oct 2009, p.118]
  6. As an album, Poetry Of The Deed is a listenable, more than competent collection. The difficulty lies in it's lack of character.
