ALBUM REVIEW: Frank Turner - The Third Three Years

FRANK TURNER ... The Third Three Years (XtraMile Recordings)
FRANK TURNER ... The Third Three Years (XtraMile Recordings)

FOLK-punk singer Frank Turner regularly rounds up bits and bobs which aren’t on his albums, and this is the third such set, covering the last three years.

He’s gone from being a lone protest singer to selling out Wembley Arena and opening the London Olympics, but his music remains the one constant.

Here’s you’ll find everything from a full-band version of Queen’s SomeBody To Love to an acoustic take on Springsteen’s Born To Run, via nuggets like Sweet Albion Blues and Riot Song, and duets with Emily Barker and Jon Snodgrass.

Great stuff. 8/10. GW
