Album Of The Year 2011 :: Frank Turner’s Top 5

The idea that there’s a one true ‘album of the year’ is a pretty misguided one. With that in mind, we’ve tried to offer up a series of recommendations from both the Moon & Back Music staff, and from a few notable names from the world of music.
Today it’s the turn of a man who’s constantly on the road, who’s played the main stage at countless festivals this past year, and who released one of 2011’s finest albums. World-renowned Wessex boy, Frank Turner gives us his ‘Top 5 of 2011’.

5. Josh T Pearson – Last Of The country Gentlemen

Easily the most viscerally dark album about love I’ve ever heard. I still have trouble listening to this from time to time, it’s too intense.

4. Chris T-T – Disobedience

A lovely idea executed with love and care by a good friend.

3. Emily Barker & The Red Clay Halo – Almanac

Emily and the girls hit the perfect tone on this record, poised, gentle and sad.

2. Jen Buxton – Don’t Change Your Plans

Jen is an old friend from Australia who’s taken her time to make her first record, and it’s stunning. Lyrics to die for.

1. Glossary – Long Live All Of Us

My favourite rock’n’roll record of the year by miles.
