  1. Tape Deck Heart may not be quite as good as the phenomenal England Keep My Bones, but it’s a quality release with excellent lasting value that will be a mainstay on album of the year lists in 2013.

    At its core, Tape Deck Heart is the kind of record we've all always wanted Frank Turner to make. [May 2013, p.83]

    This is much more of a traditional rock record than anything else Frank has done, and that’s a good thing because it means that it’s probably the most consistent album he’s made.

    There aren't as many as invigorating, reach for the sky ballads as on his last album, but that doesn't mean that this is a rock record that fails to rock. Tape Deck Heart is a rich and melodic set of folk/punk tunes dealing with Turner's usual themes of heartache, hope, redemption and the saving grace of rock and roll. Full Review »
