Review: Frank Turner – Love, Ire And Song

Love, Ire & Song is more diverse than his debut album, with tracks ranging from the beautiful piano ballad ‘Jet Lag’, to the sing-along ‘Photosynthesis’ and the rocker ‘Imperfect Tense’.

I’m not sure if anything can touch ‘Blackened Sky’ or ‘The Vertigo of Bliss’ as both of those previous records are pretty much faultless to my ears, but Puzzle is a top-notch album.

Hammer No More The Fingers: CD Release Show

The main event, HNMTF came on to a crowd ready to tear the world apart with their energy and excitement. The Duke Coffeehouse was being crushed by the energy and sheer mass of people, all jumping and singing along to every song. I feared the place might collapse it was so intense. HNMTF were pure perfection.
